Question about 2002 Honda VT 750 CD Shadow A.C.E. Deluxe

2 Answers

Front seals, and engine missing.

I live in Panama, Republic of Panama. I own a 2005 Shadow Spirit and both front forks rubber seals seemed to have dried out and are now leaking. True Honda dealers, just not around, some dealers have a couple of models but are not really experienced in the Shadow. My question is it difficult to change all seals in the front forks.Second question with new spark plugs it still misses at full trotle and low speeds and does the same at high speed, any clues.Thank you,Richard

You have telescopic forks on that model. A telescopic fork on a honda or a suzuki or yamaha are basically the same. The main thing you need to know is fluid level. If you've never done it before , please leave it to the professionals only because that is a major oops if it's not done right and could kill you. as far as the missing, it sounds like you need a carb clean ( if it applies to you unit ) Your slow speed jet gets clogged very easily on the *** models because the inner size of the jet is tiny. If you didn't store the bike with stabil or if you've left gas sitting in the tank and carbs ( if applicable ) for longer than 3 mo's then I would do a carb clean. If your model is Fuel injected.. You mat have a bad fuel management system ( Power Commander, Fuel pak etc... ) try unplugging it to see if the problem clears up. if you don't have am aftermarket fuel management and it is a stock bike with fuel injection, then I would suggest bringing it to a dealer to see if there are any current or historic codes in the bank.

As for the fork seals, to do it right takes special tool to pull the forks apart. If all you want to change is the outer seals, it is easy.

How do you take top clamp off tree to remove forks? i can not see screws.for honda shadow 750 spirit 2003


On the front of the clamps you will see two round chrome circles. These are fancy hole fillers/plugs. If you gently pry them out with a small screw driver you will find the socket cap bolts you seek to remove the upper triple clamp. If you are trying to put in new fork seals it is more easily done by leaving the tubes in the clamps and sliding the lower fork tubes off the bottom of the fork tubes.

Leak in front fork


This is the damping oil in the fork. Once it is all leaked out you will find it difficult to control the bike on bumpy roads. Get it checked ASAP. Repair is not very complicated since it requires replacement of the fork seals. I would recommend doing both forks at the same time. If one has failed the other is not far behind.

2003 vt750dc spirit front fork leaks. what to do?


Don't worry about a little oil on the shock, the seal has gone bad, common problem, usually from a hit on the side pushing it out of round. You need to take them apart, dump the oil in a tray or pan, layout the pieces in order on newspaper or in a big tray, replace the seal, put it all back and pour in a pre-measured amount of fork oil. Be careful pushing the springs back in, Hope this helps.
