Wow , its been a while since I have seen one of those.
The carbs have to be calibrated on those. To insure same airflow and so on. But as I remember the rear cylinder does run a little hotter on those, seems it doesn't get the air that the front one gets. And over time it runs a little hotter. The v45 and the 700 Vulcan had the same trouble in those years.

Does the Honda 500 shadow have a fuel pump


No this model did not come with a fuel pump. Actually the VT 700 Series was the only Honda from 1986 that contained a fuel pump.

1983 vt 500 honda shadow. Replaced both head's. Starts fine has good power. Yet it pop's or back fires some times after giving it progressive fuel. What do you think. Thank you!


Three things that can cause popping or backfiring. 1)You may have cracked, leaking,or broken intake manifolds or bad o-rings on the manifolds. 2)Leaking exhaust gaskets in the head or between the head pipe and muffler. 3)Bad spark plug caps and partially fouled plugs. Check it out.
