Question about 1998 Honda VT 1100 C3 Shadow Aero

1 Answer

Dies in mid-ride

After running for awhile, it acts like it's running out of gas. Sputter, sputter then off. Will not start back up until after it cools down. Someone suggested the coil?

    sputtering sounds like a fuel starvation issue, not an electrical issue.



    does it do the same if the petcock is in reserve instead of the on position?



    when running, is it at idle or are you at speed and it quits?



    if equipped, is the fuel filter clean?

I HAD THIS PROBLEM. BIKE WOULD START AND IDLE NO PROBLEM. WOULD GET UP TO SPEED AND DIE. WOULD START AFTER SITTING. BIKE HAD BEEN SITTING FOR A PERIOD.

FIX:: REPLACED FUEL FILTER FIXED THE PROBLEM.

LOCATION::: TUCKED UP ABOVE VOLTAGE REGULATER RECTIFIER IN FRONT OF REAR TIRE LOOKING UP.

Sarvation problem?


It could be a blocked breather in the Fuel filler. Or a blocked fuel filter. Check them both. Most likely the fuel filler breather.

Ignition components are getting wet. Check your ignition wires for leakage alobg their length and at the boots. You can do this with no lights at night with the engine running any leakage will appear as a spark. Some dielectric greas in the boots might also hel to keep the water out.

I doubt the battery would cause such an issue. It actually sounds like it could be water (condensation) in the fuel. I would suggest trying dry gas before you do anything else.

Bike started to sputter and lose power fuel


This sounds like water in the gas. Condensation in the gas tank makes it's way into the float bowl and after enough accumulates the bike dies because water just doesn't burn like gas. Drain the carbs and then let them fill up again. The good thing is that the cost to eliminate this as a problem is zero.

Engine dies after quad is warmed up (10-15 minutes)


Just a hunch, had this happen to a bike of mine years ago, could be the piston rings are gettting ready to go(wore down). What happens is when the quad is cold the rings expand tight into the cylinder walls allowing it to get full compression and run ok. When it heats up they shrink allowing the slightest amount of give which in turn will cause you problems similar to what your describing.

The problem may be a pinched fuel or vacuum hose, or a weak/collapsed vacuum hose. The problem may be varnished fuel/carburetors. It may be an electrical problem: loose connector or defective conductor. I cannot help you other than this without having the Duc and performing a few tests. The Monsters are fun to ride.
