Question about 2005 Honda VT 1100 C2 Shadow Sabre
I put in cheap gas on sunday and as soon as I drove off from the gas station(Shell), my bike acted as if I had bad gas; sputtering and barely increasing power over 45 mph.
I drained my tank on monday morning. I put Chevron Techron premium gas into the tank(1/2 tank full). My bike ran a tadbit better but still sputters @ 45mph. What's cuasing this? Is it new sparkplugs need to be changed or what?
You drained the tank but did not drain the carbs. Plugs should not need to be changed. Contact your states weights and measures department. There is groundwater and trash getting into the fuel storage tanks. Gas may be leaching into th soil.
A "very helpful" rating here? < < And it doesn't cost anything extra!

Had this happen with a 81 Goldwing, wasn't the gas, well maybe part of the problem. It was small particals that clogged the jets. Had to remove no. three carb and clean the jets and walla, the bike ran perfect.
