Question about 2004 Honda VT 750 Shadow Aero
I start it with the choke on and it starts fine. I push the choke off and after a minute it starts to bog when I hit the gas and won't idle right.when it gets hot it won't stay running without choke on then backfires and won't stay running. When I first got it I got stuck on the side of the road twice and wouldn't start till it was cold. Then it would get down the road a mile or two and die again. Now it seems to just not want to stay running.
Pull out the plugs and clean them , carry a spare set of plugs , always use good gas ,if you have this problem get better grade octane gas , sunaco 92 is the best cost a little more but worth it , some motors will only run good on this gas , as stated above if you bike sits for a long time , shut gas off and let the bike run out of gas as to clean the carb out ,

Follow the cable from the start to finish it might have been bent or damaged. then have a look at the carbs they might have been damaged in the two accidents if the mix is wrong or they are letting in air

my guess is that its not the carb at all but it might be the gas line in side the tank is cloged to the point whare you need to have it on choke in order to pull enough gas to the carb which would be the reason for it not wanting to come back down to idle quickly or it could be the fuel pump is cloged and if you tried that already than the fuel adjustment is way off and will need to be adjusted while a friend or family is keepin it running
and if that is not the problem than email me.

It seems that your bike if having fuel problem. The fuel pump may be getting hot and not supplying enough fuel. Or the HT coil may be getting hot and not giving enough current to the spark plugs. You have to rule out both these points. The "choke keeps it running" phenomenon means that it is not getting enough fuel. So concentrate on the fuel pump. Also clean up the air and petrol jets in the carb.the petrol jet may be blocked.

I once had a wee car,whenever it got too much petrol inside itself it refused to go anywhere and had to rest for some time and you had to be very careful with the choke and the petrol so it did not swallow too much of it and need another rest.
