I just put in a new carburetor in my 87 corolla sr5 and it has cold start problems and the idle wont stay at a set rpm all the time

You probably have vacuum leaks somewhere. Be sure your base gasket is tight, and all your hoses are tight and not cracked. Use a length of fuel hose held to your ear with the engine running, and listen for a hissing.

Valve specs for VT 500 honda shadow 1983

Your valve clearances should be:
Intake .08-.12 mm (.003-.005 in)
Exhaust .12-.16 mm (.005-.006 in)
I usually start all gaps in the middle of given specs, then fine tune from there.
Hope this helps

Measure the exhaust back pressure. Do you have an old O2 sensor? If so just break the ends off of it so that just the tube is left sticking thru the center. Install it in one of the O2 ports and hook a vacuum/pressure guage to it. Should read les than 1 psi at idle and no more than 3 to 4 psi at WOT.
