Question about 2005 Honda VT 750 Shadow Aero
Bike starts great, but only runs a few minutes, sputters and quits.
I,v got one as well 2 things can cause that, petrol or spark,check to see if the float is set right height and needle and seat aren't blocked and only letting a tiny amount of fuel threw you should pull carb apart and give it agood blow out with compressed air and clean the jets I think there are 2 if remembered if its starting,normally its a fuel problem could be tank tap halved booked as well normal on bikes been sitting awhile then after that get anew spark plug sometimes they start breaking down when get hot 9 times out of ten that's your problem any way try that it should work good luck

SOURCE: Dies in mid-ride
I HAD THIS PROBLEM. BIKE WOULD START AND IDLE NO PROBLEM. WOULD GET UP TO SPEED AND DIE. WOULD START AFTER SITTING. BIKE HAD BEEN SITTING FOR A PERIOD.
FIX:: REPLACED FUEL FILTER FIXED THE PROBLEM.
LOCATION::: TUCKED UP ABOVE VOLTAGE REGULATER RECTIFIER IN FRONT OF REAR TIRE LOOKING UP.

SOURCE: bike won't start
Check compression ratio and valves clearance.The carbs leak any fuel from their o-rings.Spray through the air box with a carb cleaner spray while pressing start button but little bit at a time.Don't twist the throttle too much and always use choke until she fires up for good.

sounds to me that your coils are getting hot and quiting . replace both coils or do a diagnostic check on each coil to find out wich one is loseing reistance . i repalced both coils on my bike when it did this and it runs great now

Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Is there any water or trash in the bowl? Drain a cup of gas from the tank. Is there any water or trash in the cup? Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, ( not all bikes have a water trap bowl ).
Drain the carburetor. There should be a screw on the lower side or bottom of the carb float bowl. Remove the screw then replace it after the fuel drains. Turn the gas back on and wait a minute for the carb to fill with gas. Install a new stock NGK spark plug and try to start the engine. If the bike doesn't start and run properly then shut off the gas and remove the carburetor from the engine.
Remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the carb. Remove the idle screw and the air screw on the outside throat of the carb and spray into the screw holes as well.

Be sure to put these two screws back in the same hole they came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two adjusters down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each adjuster one and one half turns outward. Put the rest of the carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine.
