Question about 2004 Honda VT 1100 C Shadow Spirit
Also the bike backfires a lot
Posted by Anonymous on
First clean carbs, slow and main Jet also, if 1 (or 2nd) cylinder is not getting enough fuel, it will back fire. 2nd, if you change pipes to a custom opened ones, you have to sync the carbs, if that is not possible (to sync carbs), you have to change slow and main jet 1up.

it sounds like a jet has become plugged. the popping is generally associated with a lean condition. in your case it seems the pilot jet is plugged. this is very common because the pilot jet is a very small orifice and is apt to plug and cause bad low throttle or idle conditions. removeing the float bowl and takeing out the pilot jet and cleaning it or replaceing it should solve your problem. this also will help with the cold starting conditions. thank you.

make certain it has compression and has spark and is getting plenty of fuel and the air filter is clean. clean carbs air filter and fuel filter and new plugs.

With only 1145 miles on your bike, it has obviously been sitting a lot. What has happened is the gasoline that was in the carburetors has evaporated and left behind some varnish which has plugged up the very small openings in the carb jets and other passageways. The carburetors need to be disassembled and cleaned out. This will fix the problem, every time.
