Question about 1999 Honda VT 1100 C Shadow Spirit
I own a 1995 honda shawdow VT1100 ace and after I cruise for 20-30 minutes I lose power, starts to backfire and forces me to pull over, after it starts to idle again smoothly I can start back out and go for another 3-5 minutes and the cycle repeats itself. If I go into a town and just run around in the first 3-4 gears it seems alright. The bike only has 2,400 miles on it, I bought it last fall with only 1350 miles and since spring I've riden another 350 miles and now this has started. Thanks for any help yo can give, Jerry honda 1100 ace has power runs well backfires out exahaust when decelerating
Check the wires on your coils and cdi boxes. are any parts (coil or cdi box) hot? Also I would check the ohms on the coils. You can look up how to do this for your particular bike. Flushing the fuel system can help also. Has it sat for any length of time? Try unplugging the gas line at various points and see if you have good flow. hope this helps you out.

Check the fuel system, see if you have a clogged filter or sock (behind the pet-****). You can also check the plugs too. They should be around 7k OHMS. Either your loosing spark or fuel.
