2 pots? well clean the carbs, V-twin only has two cylinders.... clean ALL the plugs (2 or 4) make sure to replace any extreme wear or dirt with new plugs.

Paslode impulse framing nailer , iv cleaned gun and oiled , the fan works etc . seems to only fire if i have fully charged battery ,once used for about five minutes it stops firing . only way to get it...


When it stops firing is the little light on the side of the handle green or red? If it is red then the battery is draining down too quickly. Either the fan switch has malfunctioned causing the fan to run all the time (I have seen this before) or you got either a faulty battery or charger.

1983 vt 500 honda shadow. Replaced both head's. Starts fine has good power. Yet it pop's or back fires some times after giving it progressive fuel. What do you think. Thank you!


Three things that can cause popping or backfiring. 1)You may have cracked, leaking,or broken intake manifolds or bad o-rings on the manifolds. 2)Leaking exhaust gaskets in the head or between the head pipe and muffler. 3)Bad spark plug caps and partially fouled plugs. Check it out.

The front cylinder on my 83 honda shadow 750 doesnt seem to be fireing it has new plugs its getting spark, is it possibale that only on cylinder is getting gas? i take the plugs off when the bike is...


the carbs need to be cleaned out, the front carb has a stopped up low speed jet. If you have already cleaned them then they need to be synchronized. Cleaning means removal and dis-assembly, you cannot get to the jets by spraying cleaner in the air intake.

1984 VT 500 C Shadow: 1983 honda shadow -starts and runs, seems to miss ...


The fuel filter is in the tank on the petcock and is self cleaning. I suspect you have bad spark plug caps on your bike the cap is part of the wire. If you remove the wire and take a reading with an ohm meter, the cap should read 5000 ohms . Anything above or below and you should replace the cap. This is probably causing the slight miss.
