1994 Honda VT 1100 C Shadow sluggish acceleration

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

SOURCE: i own a 96 fireblade

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

SOURCE: lose of power was running

BillFurr,
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.

Good luck

Does the 2002 honda shadow 1100 spirit have a governor or some kind of limiter because mine will not accelerate past 85?


It's only governed by the sprockets. I had a familiar problem. I rebuilt the carbs and had to bypass the fuel relay. Also if itbackfires need to adjust and replace exhaust donuts

Vt1100c2 backfires through pipes on deceleration - hesitates on accelerating. It runs fine at highway speeds. Seems to throttle down slow.


Could be running too lean, check the color of your plugs to know for sure, black and dry is rich white and blistered is lean.,

Honda V1100 Jumps out of gear on full throttle acceleration


More likely it is a slightly bent shift fork not fully engaging into second. The clutch and bearings are not suspect. Remove your foot from the shift lever then go full throttle in 2nd. Those new riding boots may be doing the magic unconsciously. Adjust the shift lever height if that is the problem.
