HI harleyrider6,
No hitting means not firing?
Assuming tht its not firing up upon cranking,
please check if theres gas coming to the spark plugs and sparks too.
Not a bad idea to replace the spark plugs if they are fouled up!

Good luck.

You need to check for spark when the back cylinder is not firing to see if that is the problem...from there it will be easier to troubleshoot...also check for vacuum leaks.

Front brake locks up when bike gets hot usually within first 10 miles stop and bleed it and it is ok for a few hours.


Sounds like the return orifice in your master cylinder is plugged up. You should rebuild the master cylinder paying close attention to the small return hole in the master cylinder.

Where is the oil plug to my honda 600 1993 shadow i want to change the oil. shoul i change the oil after riding 500 miles @ 75 miles per hour it was changed before i took te trip?


the drain plug is under the motor in left front of the crankcase it faces the out side not straight down, and it is behind the radiator hose. riding the bike at 500 miles at 70 mph will not hurt the oil you only need to change the oil every 3000 miles.

I just bought a 1998 Honda Shadow 1100. The


I doubt the bike has 100k on it, thats alot of riding! If it runs and looks good just figure it is a typo and ride it. As far as the oil filter that bike uses a spin on filter, it is painted black, screws on the front of the engine just above the oil pan just to the right of center.

Should I adjust my valves? 1999 Honda Shadow Ace.


Well if its running good and you don't here any out of the ordinary rattling I wouldn't worry about it until at least 25,000-30,000 miles on the bike so probabley in another 10,000 miles or so have the valves adjusted unless you hear any unordinary rattling noises sooner then go in at that point and have them adjusted.

2002 honda shadow deluxe custom 750. 100 miles only on this 8yr old bike. When trying to start the bike pull the choke hit the start button and sometimes it would start most of the time engine turns but no...


Sounds like the battery may be weak, recharge and test, maybe replace. As far as starting, most Hondas will not start if you open the throttle any at all. Shadows being liquid cooled are generally cold natured, but you should be able to ride away with the choke on in 1 or 2 minutes, you might have to ride as far as 4 or 5 miles at highway speed before you can take the choke fully off. If it is taking longer than these times, you will need to remove and clean the carbs. the low speed jets may be partially blocked up.
