Question about 1999 Honda VT 1100 C Shadow Spirit
It starts with, cold start liquid for about 5 sec then dies is there a simple promblem check i can do. by the way its a 2002 honda shadow.
Really do not recommend using starting fluid very often, Hard on parts. Sounds like the typical problem by thousands of bikers every spring. Todays fuel do not have the required additives to last very long in a closed system. Carb's are first to get the brunt of the problem. There are drain screws on the bottom of the carbs. Put rag's under carbs or something else to catch the fuel, and loosen the screws to drain out old fuel. If you are lucky after closing the screws, just open fuel to reserve to refill bowls. Then try to restart. Sometimes the fuel sitting in the bowl will seat the float needle and not allow the fresh fuel to enter the bowl. If after you drain the float bowl of the old fuel you might want to temporarily open the fuel valve while the screw is loose to make sure they flow fresh fuel.
