2004 Honda Shadow VT600C VLX Carb?

Hi, My wife's Shadow has been parked for over 1 year. Before we parked it, I ran it for about 10 minutes with fuel stabilizer. I did NOT drain the carb. I recently drained the tank and refilled with fresh fuel. I CAN keep it running with the choke on and even close to fully off). I let it warm up and sprayed a good amout of carb cleaner into the carb. I can not get it to stay running at idle speed AND whenever I give it throttle, it wants to DIE. Any ideas? I would be willing to pull carb apart(if necesary) though would like to know if anyone has any further ideas before going that route?? Thanks in advance!!

You may want to give this product a try its the brand name is Sea Foam they have in spray form i use the non spray form because a lot of bikes just sit for a year or longer and the gas turns to gum to green hard deposits and this was the only product that would desolve the green deposits when i do carb clean / rebuilds.

SOURCE: Honda CG125 stalls when choke closed

Hi mate, what you want to do is take a dump in the petrol tank. This usually cleans the carb out with your **** and works surprisingly well.

SOURCE: My 2004 Honda shadow aero vt750 is running poorly.

has the bike been sitting for a time ..sounds like the carbs need pulled and cleaned..you could try draining the fuel out at the float bowls there should be drain screws at the bottom there could be dirt or water in them sometimes this will help without pulling them ..good luck

SOURCE: will only run with full choke and absolutely no throttle.

Carbs gummed up. Need a serious cleaning or a full ruubers replacement/rebuild kit. Gas turns to gummy when left stting in the fuel bowls.

Use a couple of cans of Sea Foam.. best stuff in the world.

SOURCE: bike will not idle witout having choke on a bit

I have a supermagna and used fuel stablizer once and it wasnt fit it gummed my carbs up,ive cleaned mine often and it isnt rocket science,remove the tank airbox assembly,loosen up the boot flanges that hook the carbs to the motor(ones on carb)then remove the carbs,then the cables,choke and throttle,do not remove carbs from assembly(leave all 4 together)remove the bottoms and tops of a carb,removefloat and jet,then remove all the brass jets and clean them so you can see through holes,,blow out all the holes in carbs,and reasemble,works for me every time,about two hours to do,good luck

SOURCE: 2004 Honda Shadow Aero stalls

There seems to be low gas level in the float chamber of the carburator.
Clean the carburator and check the float level and reset.
With the choke 'on' and if you hit the throttle it will die because there is a restriction of the air flow to the carburator.

2007 Honda VT600 Shadow VLX where do I put the wires I disconnected from my speedometer? Thanks


Hi, Amanda I would wrap the wires individually on the ends with electrical tape so they don't short out against anything metal and tuck them away as best you can and secure with tie wraps.

Hi, Kimberly well what you need to do is go to a hardware store or Home Depot even another bike shop and buy a spring that is similar in design winding thickness only 1/2" shorter if that doesn't work get one 3/4" shorter and for more information about your question and valuable "FREE" downloads that you will need please click on the links below.
