Sounds like a bent shift fork or two. Replacing the bad shift forks is major surgery and is NOT recommended for the inexperienced mechanic. Several special tools are needed. The top end and gearbox get totally torn down just to get to the shift forks. This is a very expensive repair, guessing $2100 or so at the dealers. Bummer. Contact a few dealers to cofirm my view of the problem and the probable repair cost. The shift forks move left and right as the shift drum is rotated when you lift or push down on the shift pedal.

I have a 2002 750 ace i have a line that is blowing fuel while bike is running. cant tell where the line should connect . the line is between the heads and sticks out the left side around the choke area ....

Bikes with carburetors usually have a breather hose that releases excess gasoline. It doesn't connect to anything at the lower ende, it's a "dump" route. If it's it doing this a lot, it means the float(s) in your carb(s) are either sticking or set too high. This causes excess gas in the carbs, and the breather tube is getting rid of it. You have to take off the bottom of the carb(s) in order to check the floats. Look in a service manual or online for how to do this for your model.. and don't smoke while you're trying it!

Oil getting air filter

The engine breather pipe is mostly routed to the air cleaner box, if it gets oily means the piston oil rings are the culprit.
You can do one thing to make sure though, remove the breather pipe at the air cleaner housing and start the bike, see if there are signs of bluish smoke or oil vapours emitting there.

1996 Honda VT 1100 C2 Shadow Sabre oil in the air filter box

Hi, Wayne and the usual suspects are:
1. Oil tank/system overfilled.
2. Faulty breather valve.
3. Engine breather hose bent, pinched, kinked etc.
4. Air filter has too much "pre-oil".
5. Crankshaft seal failure allowing transmission fluid to migrate.
6. Blow by drain tube cracked/split or filled to capacity.

I have oil laying in the air box , what would cause this , its an 2007 70 aero shadow. Carbs good , just have a puddle of oil in the air box

Honda equips it's motorcycles with a pollution storing device called a pollution tube. Place a pan in front of the rear wheel and look for the tube that has a plug in the end of it. Pull the plug and all the engine blow by , water, and other horrible gack will fall out of the tube and into the pan. This should drain the the bottom the air box of oil. Typically , what you are seeing in the air box is everything that comes out the engine breather. If there is a lot of oil , your engine was over filled and the excess went out of the breather rather than pop a seal or gasket. If it smells like gas, CHECK YOUR OIL LEVEL. If one of your carburetors had a float needle stick you may have gas in your oil . This can happen even though all the motorcycle components are good. Just change your oil and always turn your gas off when you are not riding , and you will not fill your engine with gas again.

I have a 2005/6 Honda Shadow Aero 750, I was coming home today which intails drropping dow a mountain....about 2000 feet over 5 or 6 miles....when i got to the bottom and noticed it was blowing...

Check your oil level. Engine braking down a mountain side could be overloading the breather system, only because most people do not know there are pollution tubes under and behind the motor, in front of the rear wheel. They collect oil and crud from the engine blow by and recycle it through the carburetor intake. If they are full it collects in the bottom of the air box. This is probably causing the smoke and oil you describe. Place a pan under the tubes and pull the plugs out. All the oily crud should come out. Then put the plugs back in. Also check your air cleaner for oil saturation you may have to wipe out the bottom of the air box or even replace an air filter. Also check that a breather tube has not come off of the top of the motor. This could also cause the oil between the cylinders you describe.
