Question about 1994 Honda VT 1100 C Shadow
Accelerate and it feels sluggish, when I let go of the throttle I hear lots of popping noise, it doesn't run like it did in the summer, I think it's a lot of air coming from somewhere
Posted by Anonymous on
Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Throttle cables misaligned or misrouted.
2. Damaged or restricted fuel tank venting system.
3. Intake system air leak.
4. Vacuum piston malfunction.
5. Pinholes or torn diaphragm.
6. Accelerator pump leaking or no output.
7. Plugged bowl vent or overflow.
8. Fuel level in bowl too low.
9. Restricted fuel supply passages.
10. Plugged jets or passages.
11. Worn or damaged needle or needle jet.
12. The enrichner valve/choke not seated or leaking.

carb. needs to be rebuilt sounds like trash in the float body or in the needles try using some sea foam in the gas tank (if u get it to start again) it has probably fouled out the plugs

Ok, clutch slip,would not be noticable when you back off the throttle so mutch, you would mainly notice slip when accelarating as the engine speed would increase but not your actual speed, as if you hadn,t let go of the clutch fully
Is the noise noticable through all the gears? Does. The bike jurke when the noise is present?
If it does i would check these items externaly.
The condition of the drive chain, rotate the wheel and check for missing rolers from the chain links, remove front sprocket cover, and observe the sprocket for broken or missing teeth. Also check if the sprocket has exsess play as if the bolt were loose, if so remove and check shaft condition for dammaged splines, next look at the rear sprocket for broken or worn teeth, missalignment and tension, all fixing bolts, next grab the sprocket firmly top and bottom pull to and fro as if you were pulling from the outer and not in a rotation , you are now looking to see if the bearing in the carrier on the rear wheel has failed any exses movment would mean replacing the bearing, this would contribute to vibration, if this is ok press the chain downwards check to se if the engine moves, sometimes engine bolts become loose and vibration would again be evident, check engine subframe for damage cracking etc. Vibration can also derive from front and rear wheel bearings giving a visible vibration in footrests and handlebars in extreme cases, good luck my bet is chain and sprocket, poss carrier bearing, paul

Could be a couple of things. One, could be the carbs allowing too much fuel or dumping fuel to the engine. This will cause the plug to load up and the bike to stall. Two, it could be a weak spark such as a bad plug, improper gap of plug etc. I would try some little things. First, I would get new plug(s) and ensure they are gaped to factory spec. If that does not help, I would have the carbs rebuilt and or the ignition of the bike checked out.
