Gas in oil (2007 shadow spirit)

I always expect some gas in the oil on my bike when i bring it back out in the spring. I bought this bike new last summer and like always i changed the oil first thing this spring. we went on a trip a few weeks ago and i noticed it was getting a little too hot for the cool temps we were riding in. i checked the oil and it had gas in it. so i changed it again and now i have gas in my oil again. any ideas?

The gas must be passing in through the inlet via the carburator/s which seems to be flooding.
Remove the carbs and check the float pins and adjust.
Please dont forget to replace the oil filter as it must be full of gas too!
Check the petcock too ...maybe the auto shut off isn't functioning!
Hope this helps!

    The gas can also be entering frm the air filter box which has the engine breather pipe fitted to it.

    Check the air filter too.

2002 Shadow: bike leaks gas from the carb, and runs with no gas going to it


Carbs have a reservoir in the base that will last for a few miles before it is drained. So turning the fuel off doesn't starve the engine immediately. This is normal.

2007 Honda Shadow Spirit 750 carburetor overflow


Hi, James and the usual suspects are:
1. Damaged or restricted fuel tank venting system.
2. Loose float bowl screws.
3. Damaged float bowl o-ring.
4. improper fuel level in the float bowl.
5. Worn or dirty inlet valve or seat.
6. Damaged or leaking float assembly.
7. Particle contamination in inlet fitting cavity.
8. Damaged petcock diaphragm allowing fuel to flow through the vacuum line into the combustion chamber.

Carbs sputtering and misfireing on Shadow Spirit VT750 2005


An engine never misfires due to these things. It is always because of maladjustment of the timing at the CB points. Check the timing and set it right.

SPUTTERING WHEN HOLDING 50-60 MPH


Since it ran fine before you "fixed" it, go back over the things you changed. Put the old spark plugs back in it. Double check all spark plug wires and ignition connections. Put the bike in a dark area and run it at night, can you see any arcing anywhere?

My wife has a 750 honda shadow spirit 2003 dc that is leaking gas at the boot that fits from the bottom of the carb. to the front cylindar what is causing it and how do i fix it


This sounds to me like a carb float being stuck open. Turn off the gas and drain the offending carb(s). Next, turn the gas back on and sharply tap the float bowl with the plastic handle of a screwdriver as the fuel bowl refills. The goal here is to vibrate the float to free it up. If doing this process a couple of times does not free the float I would remove the carb(s) and clean with a spray carb cleaner. Clean the air filter then re-mount carb(s). Next Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, ( not all bikes have a water trap bowl ). Install an inline fuel filter.

THis should solve the problem.
