Question about 2004 Honda VT 1100 C Shadow Spirit
Bike hasn't been cranked in a month and has been sitting on a trickle charger. Now the when the bike cranks up and when you take the choke off it dies or if you give it any throttle it dies. I'm thinking maybe bad fuel but not an expert so please any help would be greatly appreciated.
Try the bad gas route first by draining the tank and replacing it with fresh fuel.
if no joy, then i would focus on gummed up carbs. remove the carbs from the bike, then remove the float bowls from the carbs and take a look. my guess if the jets are clogged and/or lots of varnish on the float and bottom of the bowl. clean it all out including all of the orfices on the jets (main & pilot) and you should be a-ok.
