2004 Honda VT 750 Shadow fuel pump leak

Have a gas leak coming from the fuel pump area under the bike. Only leaks in cold temps, when it has been sitting. Just started 3 or 4 days ago. It runs fine, so I don't think it is a float problem, and it doesn't leak while running. Any idea what the problem is??@

    ok, so i went on a 200 mile long trip, and when i returned, the leaks have stopped, although the temp hasn't gone below 40 since the last leak.

No the fuel pump will not fail more than once. When a fuel pump goes out it just goes. Will not work after that what so ever. Sounds like bad gas lines. I had this problem. I replaced my old gas line after the old one cracked when I did this I cut the new on to long. When I put my tank back on the old one pinched. It would run fine for a few min then sputter and die as the gas in the line ran out. I let it sit for a min and more gas filled the line and would start the process over. Try replacing the fuel lines and make sure they are cut to the right length and do not kink when the tank is on. It could also be a dirty petcock. I had let my bike sit for 6 months while in another state and the gat tank got dirty somehow. I got it running and same problem putters and dies. Neighbor took out the petcock and used an air hose to clean it out and it worked like new.

SOURCE: Fuel leaking into crankcase on 2001 Honda CBR 600

it's probably leaking from the carb and down the cylinder into the crankcase.
it is probably due to a stuck float in the carb. take the float bowl off and make sure it is clean. the float can also be full of gas not letting it float up and stop the gas flow. the carb will fill up and leak wherever it can which is likely the case

My bike a 2004 shadow aero will not start in the morning sometimes it will if i spray carb cleaner in the intake inside the air box i just had the carb cleaned and the vac hose replaced and valves adj


Have the plugs been replaced? Fouled plugs can cause this condition. All carburetors cause more difficult starts in the cold, because they need a richer fuel mixture. An intake leak can also cause hard starting because it leans out the air/fuel mixture.

Start with the plugs first since you didn't mention those. Here is a handy reference for standard NGK plugs. http://ngksparkplugs.com/tech_support/spark_plugs/faqs/faqread.asp

After you get the bike started, spray some WD-40 around the carburetor intake manifold seals. If the RPMs change, you have an intake leak.

Hope this helps.

2002 Honda VT 750 CD Shadow exhaust popping


Hi, Anonymous if your carburetor or exhaust is:
COUGHING is usually caused by an air leak in the intake system and will generally have the same telltale signs, a wet or damp build up of oil/gas seepage at the intake manifold to cylinder head or carburetor to intake manifold connection and in rare instances a worn throttle plate shaft and or seals.
POPPING on deceleration is usually caused by a lean fuel condition or an air leak in the exhaust system and is generally located where black carbon soot is seen as a flashing build up from any joint connection. This condition can easily be remedied by removing and cleaning both joint pieces and reassembling with high temp silicone and torquing the exhaust clamp to the proper spec.
SPITTING is usually caused by a faulty accelerator pump and or nozzle, or the float bowl needle and seat leaking and overflowing through the main jet mixing well nozzle, or the air-fuel mixture screw is adjusted too lean.
BACKFIRING is usually caused by a sticky/tight intake valve or a timing issue, 180 degrees out or cam chain off 1or 2 teeth.

2002 Shadow: bike leaks gas from the carb, and runs with no gas going to it


Carbs have a reservoir in the base that will last for a few miles before it is drained. So turning the fuel off doesn't starve the engine immediately. This is normal.

I have a 2004 Honda vt750 Shadow Aero. It sat for a few months (all winter). I didn't put any fuel stabilizer in the tank, nor any seafoam. The motocycle starts rough, but when I twist the throttle it...


The carbs will need to come off and be cleaned. They are gummed up causing the stalling. The petcock will need to be replaced, it is not rebuildable

2004 honda shadow 750 small hole at the bottom of the petcock valve is leaking fuel. Is it a small screw that fell out or a bad gasket, or?


Your petcock is vacuum operated. Gasoline leaking from the vent hole indicates that the vacuum diaphram is ruptured. A new petcock assembly is needed.

No I took the cutoff off the tank and gas comes out of the tank fine and the cutoff seens to be working, dose it have a fual pump?


Yes your bike has a fuel pump. Probably located under your seat. Follow the fuel line that goes from the tank and it will take you to the fuel pump.
