Hi most likely the carb need cleaning or you have some water in the bottom of the float bowl. you can try this, there is a float bowl drain screw on the float bowl so if there is water it will drain out. this is just a first easy step if it works your good to go if not time to pull the carb and do a complete cleaning (note most do it yourself home mechanics will clean carbs and over look the most important part, you need to pay close attention to the low speed jet make sure it is not blocked and if it is unblock it i use copper wire strand if it is fully blocked the blow it out and spray through with carb cleaner.
I use Brand name carb cleaner ( Sea-Foam ) This is an excellent product for removing gummed and hardened fuel deposits it comes in can liquid and as a spray.

Electrical ... check points. You jmight want to run some carb cleaner through it ... change the plugs. Id look at the points or what ever turns the coil on and off, real close.

SOURCE: honda 1986 vt1100c shadow... will start on choke,

You need some carb work (or should I say fuel delivery system?) on this classic motorcycle. You might get away with using some fuel injector cleaner - I would try this first - to dlean the carb (fuel delivery system)

How is your gas? Fresh?

It can be frustrating to try to solve this type problem. Good luck. You can always take it to the Honda Shop ... it is getting colder now, ya know.

Anyway, good riding to you my friend. Thank you for posting at FixYa.com. Please vote

Fuel not flowing to carb.


Check you petcock for correct operation and make sure its not clogged. If its a vacuume actuated petcock, make sure the hose is attached well and not leaking. If all is well with those 2 things then try seeing if gas will flow when you remove the gas cap. If that fixes the problem, then the vent holes on your gas cap are clogged up.

Recheck fuel flow wth float bowl removed allow floats to hang free. And fuel will flow out, remove float needle check for sticking in seating, remove secondary jet and clean with fine wire to remove fuel contamination,also main jet, if all else fails find a used carburettor to replace old one

I had my oil changed and when I got my vtx 1300R back, the kick stand caused the motorcycle to lean left.


From what Your describing,,,While it was at the Service Shop they may have put some air in you front suspension if you have air assisted shocks,,,Your Motorcycle isn't supposed to sit straight up,,a mild lean is no big deal.

Does your bike have a petcock?

If so you have to prime the fuel bowls with gas by opening the pet **** for a minute until the fuel bowls are full of fuel THEN you set your choke if you have a manual choke THEN start the bike.

Your bike should have 3 main wires in the rear even if they split to power 2 bulbs each.
1 for brake light
1 for night rear light
1 for ground.
Your trailer should have additionally 2 more for the turn signals.

Possibly bad gas?


I would do both. Plugs can gas foul plus after draining I would add a fuel restorer additive, just to be sure there is no problem with the older fuel.
