Question about 2002 Honda VT 750 CD Shadow A.C.E. Deluxe
I have a hose that comes out of the top of the carbs and goes between the heads and stick out the right side of the bike. While running it shoots fuel out this hose. I cant find where or why this is happening.Anybody with a clue? and its only while running. As near as I can tell from carburator diagram it looks like part number 10. It comes out of a T
It's doing what it's supposed to -- dumping excess fuel. However, if it's doing this a lot, and your gas mileage is poor, your carb float levels should be checked. If they're too high, this may be a cause of frequent fuel overflow. The other possible culprit is the fuel tap below your tank. It it's delivering too much fuel, it may need to be overhauled or replaced. There are kits with the springs, washers, etc. for most fuel taps.

It is a vent / overflow hose. It drains to the atmosphere / street. If gas is coming out and isn't stopping then a float is stuck.
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 look for any misalignment of float pin, needle or adjusting tang.
Now re-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 trap bowl ). INSTALL AN IN-LINE FUEL FILTER..

hi,i might be wrong,but the first place i would start looking is the carbs,there are two of them and it has all the symptoms of imbalanced carbs,if you have a set of carb balancers then the job is relatively easy,if not,then you will have to take it to a shop to get done,the adjustments on the carbs are very very fine,the difference between running perfect and not running well is about 1/50th of a turn on the balance adjuster screw,if the carbs have been tampered with or as is normally the case,as the bike ages and all the parts start to wear the carbs will go out of balance,and it will severely affect engine performance,get the carbs tuned up and i am pretty sure you will have a new feeling bike when you get it back..hope this helps...cheers

Two things: First make sure there is some free play in the throttle cable. The twist grip should have a small amount of free-play, just a fraction of a turn, before the throttle actually begins to open. On the throttle cable, up near the handlebar, is a free-play adjuster.
Second, verify that the throttle cable is routed correctly. Confirm this by referring to the owner's manual for your Honda.
Both of these items are absolutely critical for correct and safe operation.

Remove the float bowls on the left carbs then clean the carbs with spray carb cleaner. Pay special attention to the float needle. A bit of rust, gasket or other contaminant is preventing the float needle from shutting off the petrol. Please rate my answer.
