Question about 2008 Honda VT 750 Shadow

1 Answer

I have a 2008 honda 750 shadow areo and it will start and run for awhile and then all of sudden it just dies. I try to restart it but it only cranks and cranks but it won't restart. I let it set f

The bike will start with no problem most of the time but then it does the problem of dying and not start at all. I was told that the shutoff valve is operated by vacuum that operates a diaphram inside the shutoff valve to allow the gas to flow to the carb. Most of the time my problem happens real early in the morning when I am ready to go to work. It will start everytime in the summer time but when the tempature is cooler thats when the problem starts.

Hello the Carb needs cleaning most likely the rich start system and low speed idle circuit is partially blocked.
be fore you decide to pull the carb you may want to try a fuel cleaner the brand name is ( Sea Foam ) so if the carb is just lightly gummed up this may clear it up.

Are you adding oil to the gas? (32/1 = 4 ounces per gallon)
Do you still have spark? Install a new stock spark plug.
Clean the carb, but follow these steps >

Remove the carburetor from the engine.
Remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the carb. Remove the two screws on the outside throat of the carb and spray into the screw holes as well.
< < READ CLOSELY > >
Be sure to put these two screws back in the same hole they came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two screws down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each screw one and one half turns outward. Put the rest of the carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine. Let the bike warm up then set the idle speed. This process should get you back on the road.

SOURCE: I have an 03 Honda 750 Shadow. I start the bike in

Your kickstand switch is either broken or out of position. The bike kills the engine as a safety feature if it thinks the sidestand is down and the bike is put in gear while the engine is running.

SOURCE: Honda shadow ACE 750 dies on idle after warmed up

I guess you will have to reset the air-mixture screws of the carburator/s.
Not bad if you check the condition of the spark plugs...if its ..'Whitish' means lean i.e. less gas in, Brownish...means ok, 'Blackish'...means too much gas in .....'rich'
In your bike's case you may find it 'whitish'.
Hope this helps !

2008 honda shadow 750 keeps dying out


either a fuel blockage or blocked idle valve in carborator.
also possible air filter is blocked, ensure airfilter is clear and if
recently replaced ensure it is in the right way round
known case of airfilter being put in back to front and when it rained
the filter got completely blocked.

for quick check of air filter, remove it and try to start engine.
but do not drive without filter in as dirt can kill your engine for good.

I hope this was useful.
