Hello ddsaul2...If it's only been a day since the shop adjusted the carbs. you need to return it to them and make them do it right.
Sounds like a float valve is stuck and not closeing.They may have cracked a seat... There could be a pin hole in one of the floats causeing it to fill up with gas and sink. You can check and make sure all the vacuum lines are connected and possibly GENTLY tap on the carb fuel bowls to see if the float might be stuck alll the way down. Personally...if i paid for a carb tune i'd make them fix it. Surely they gurantee their work.
Good luck...i hope this helps

It is different then most other carbs. DON"T DRILL ANY BRASS HEADS LOOKING FOR THE AIR FUEL MIXTURE. The air fuel mixture is the only adjustment you can make. It is located on the bottom side of the air intake, right behind the air filter box. It looks like a 1/4" flat metal plug. Do NOT drill this. There is no slot for a screw driver. There is a tool which is no more then a small piece of pipe that fits over this plug and you turn it in till seated, gently. Count the turns. Back out to 2 and a half turns, thats normal. Or if you no that you need more fuel injected, simply turn the screw OUT 1/4 or 1/2 turn and try it. GOOD LUCK (Its not hard)
There is no drilling to be done. Hope i didnt scew something up on mine......

SOURCE: I have a 2003 honda shadow spirit vt1100c and it

These bikes are notorious for doing this. You must have a good battery to start these engines. I had a '94 VT1100 Shadow and it did the same thing. I bought a new battery and that solved the problem. Take you battery out and take it to an automotive parts house. They'll usually test the battery for you free of charge. Back when I had my Shadow, the only people that made the battery was Yuasa and it was that Yumacron battery. Expensive but it made the bike start well. Good Luck!

What is the float height for 1987 vt 1100 honda


float heights are not usually needed to be adjusted, the float valve will have a rubber tip, so it wont wear and change the float height. if flooding is a problem, new float valves may be necessary, but more likely the fuel tap needs a kit

I have a 1997 vt1100 american classic,does all the vt 1100 use the same batterys.


If the american classic is the ACE model, 1995 - 2000 is the same and 2001 -2007 is the same, there are officially 18 different vt1100 models, the shadow spirit 1985 - 1997 is the same, 1998 - 2000 are the same and 2001 - 2007 are the same.

Can you hear when valves need adjusting on 1997 shadow spirit? Can it hurt the bike if you ride it with out adjusting valves? I hear a "ticking" at medium to high RPM. Not sure if it is valve or something...


If the ticking sound speeds up when you throttle up more than likely its the valve you are hearing.
If your valve need adjusting and you continue to ride it you have a greater chance of burning the valve out or floating a valve at higher RPMS.
