Question about 2011 Honda Shadow Phantom

1 Answer

2011 Honda Shadow Phantom cuts off

I have a 2011 Honda Shadow Phantom. I have Cobra's pipes, & a FI2000R tuner installed, as well as a K&N air filter to replace the stock air filter. Here lately when the bike is ridden for about 20-30 minutes, when I come to a stop the bike cuts off, & the check engine light flashes at least 3-4 times. I put fuel mixer solution in the tank thinking that I might have gotten water in the tank @ the gas station, It would run fine then cut off again. Also, I notice just behind the air filter there is a clear plastic tube that collects what looks like oil, I noticed the oily substance is leaking. If you have any ideas as to whats going on please let know. Thanks DC 7/8/13 @

Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
2. Failed alternator/generator and or voltage regulator.
3. Loose or corroded battery terminals and or cables especially the "NEGATIVE" cable, look for loose, corroded, or broken connectors inside the cable harness at "BOTH" ends.
4. Failed main circuit breaker or ignition switch, check for loose connections and continuity.
5. Failed system and or ignition relay, check for continuity.
6. Failed ignition coil, stator, magneto, ignition/electronic module.
7. Failed CKP, CPS, CMP, MAP, TPS, or BAS sensor, corroded, loose or broken wire connector pins/sockets.
8. Throttle cables and or idle speed improperly adjusted hot idle speed should be 950 RPM to 1000 RPM.
9. Faulty neutral, side stand or clutch lever safety switch.
10. Air/fuel mixture screw improperly adjusted.
11. Accelerator pump damaged or not working.
12. Water or dirt in the fuel system, carburetor or filter.
13. Restricted, blocked or kinked fuel line.
14. Fuel tank empty.
15. The gas cap is not venting properly or fuel tank venting system blocked.
16. A failed fuel pump, pressure regulator and or fuel injectors.
17. Vacuum line from intake manifold to petcock broken, cracked, or not attached, carburetor vent line plugged.
18. Needle and seat stuck closed in the float bowl.
19. Lean angle switch is faulty or needs adjustment.

when you put on a new air filter you have to rejet the carb in order for the air/fuel mixture to be correct,because with a aftermarket air filter it is allowing more air in than before and not enough fuel. as the piston speeds up upon exceleration the air is not getting burnt off into exhaust because you do not have enough fuel in the mix

I want to remove back seat is there a part to buy for where the seat is removed from

Hi, Janice not sure about that I know some guys will sometimes velcro a wide piece of leather(fender bibs) to hide new paint versus faded paint discoloration or seat scratches for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your problem.

2001 Honda VT 1100 C2 Shadow Sabre Running Lean

I have a 2007 Honda Shadow Sabre VT1100 and I also put after market pipes on it from Vance and Hines. I also have to keep it choked when first starting and sometimes even hold the throttle a bit while it warms up. The bike has two carburetors and the best solution I have found by lots of asking around of mechanics and bike folk is to get it rejetted through Dyno Jet. It is meant for bikes with after market exhausts and much less back pressure from the lack of those stiffling baffles in the stock pipes. I have also noticed the power loss in the middle torque range and backfiring because of the bike running in a lean condition. The Dyno Jet website is a good place to find the correct set and corresponding part number, but then I suggest finding a cheap place online so you avoid retail price :) Hope this helps. Oh, and don't forget to buy two kits...we have two carburators in our bikes.

Check for exhaust leaks that could let cold fresh air into the pipes,test plug wires for ohms resistance, maybe replace plugs.Could it be one of your coils has a crack that only shows itself when chilled?(try to spray silicone on the suspect coil when it is missfires, if this helps stop it fron cutting out replace the coil.(maybe even go back to your prefered jets then) If a relay is weak they can be temperature sensative as well.

Looking for tips and insrtructions

the pipes are going to blue because of the heat. Try to get heat shields. they may not make them for your pipes though. if not try to get a product from a bike shop called Blue Job. It removes the blueing when you wash your bike.
