SOURCE: Stalls to idle after riding for an hour.

It sounds like you probably need to replace the fuel filter, or you may have alot of trash in the bottom of your gas tank, possibly even water in the gas. If you can, take the tank off and clean it out well, making note if there is any trash in it, by emptying it into a bucket so you can examine it. Go ahead and replace the filter if you find any trash or water in the gas tank. If it is ok, then the next thing would be to check the fuel line for aging. Sometimes in rare cases, the hose gets old and weak and when you try to pull fuel through it, it can collapse and essential stop the gas flow, just as if you have turned the gas off, then when the suction is stopped the hose will open back up and appear to be in good shape. You can use your fingers and squeeze the line the entire length and see if it seems to feel excessively soft, if so that could also be causing your problem.

SOURCE: Running problems

I am not completely positive that this is your problem but one thing to try when it starts cutting out is to loosen the fuel cap. On a lot of 2000 through 2004 Harleys the vent in the fuel cap gets plugged up and creates a vacuum not allowing the fuel to flow to the carbs. If this doesn't help run the trouble codes to see if there is a ECM related problem. To access the codes, turn the ignition on for about 3 seconds (one second after the fuel pump stops running) and then turn the ignition off for 3 seconds. Repeat this, then turn the ignition on and the codes will flash on the check engine light after about 8 seconds. The first series of flashes (about 3 flashes per second) are intermission flashes then there will be a 2 second delay and the first code will flash. If the first digit of the code is 1 the light will flash one time and then there will be a 2 second pause before the second digit. There will be a 1 second delay between flashes for a digit of 2 or more. All codes are 2 digit codes. For example, 11 would be throttle position sensor, 12, barometric pressure sensor, 14 engine temperature sensor, 15 intake air temperature sensor, 16 battery voltage, 23 and 32 fuel injector, 24 and 25 ignition coil, 33 fuel pump relay, 52,53,54,55 ECM failure, 56 crank position and cam position sensor timing.
Hope this helps.

Honda sabre

I have an 04 Honda Sabre 1100 that does the same thing. If the rain is steady, it will actually die. After you come to a stop, it will start right away and run ok for a little while until you get up to speed in the rain and will die again. Very frustrating. Can't see any shorting when viewing in dark conditions. Bike shop also couldn't figure anything out. Any ideas?
If I figure anything out, I'll repost what worked for me.

2004 Honda VT 1100 C2 Sabre starts fine but acts like its running out of gas after riding a half mile. Let it sit for awhile and It will ride for another half mile then stop again. I have changed the fuel...

Next time it does this, remove/open the gas cap and see if that helps.
If so, then the venting system for the gas tank is plugged somewhere, and you're vapor locking.

Hi Titarosiello, I just loaned my brand new pair of listening ears to your local dealers chief technician so he could take your bike for a test ride and give you his professional opinion and estimate about your noise and repair cost. Good luck and have a nice day.

What grade of gas do i need to run and what kind of oil do i need to run in a 2001 honda shadow sabre?

Use any oil that is JASO MA motorcycle oil 10w-40 for cold climate 20w-50 for warm climate/touring. Do not use any oil that is Energy Conserving it will shorten the life of your transmission gears and wet clutch. Synthetic oils will help your bike shift easier and run cooler. Use the lowest octane fuel that will run your bike with out pinging/knocking. Probably 87 or 89 Octane it will say in your owners manual. Ethanol may cause knocking/pinging on some models. No ethanol will definitely help in vintage 70's motorcycles
