Is the bike standard? because if you have replaced the exhaust system withan after market one,the carbs will be running to lean and you will havt to go up in main jet sizes

1993 Honda VT 1100 C Shadow gets hot quits running


Hi, D and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery must have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
2. Faulty alternator/generator and or voltage regulator.
3. Loose or corroded battery terminals and or cables especially the "NEGATIVE" cable, look for loose, corroded, or broken connectors inside the cable harness at "BOTH" ends.
4. Faulty main circuit breaker or ignition switch, check for loose connections and continuity.
5. Faulty system and or ignition relay, check for continuity.
6. Faulty ignition coil, ignition/electronic module.
7. Faulty CKP, CPS, CMP, MAP, TPS, or BAS sensor, corroded, loose or broken wire connector pins/sockets.
8. Throttle cables and or idle speed improperly adjusted hot idle speed should be 950 RPM to 1000 RPM.
9. Faulty neutral, side stand or clutch lever safety switch.
10. Fuel tank empty
11. Fuel tank contaminated with ethanol sludge.
12. Water or dirt in the fuel system, or clogged filter.
13. Restricted, blocked or kinked fuel line.
14. Faulty fuel pump.
15. Faulty pressure regulator.
16. Faulty or clogged fuel injectors.
17. Lean angle switch is faulty or needs adjustment.

I have a 1985 Honda VT500 Shadow. It bogs down at about 5500 rpm. I changed the 4 spark plugs, checked the air filter, took off the carbs and blew out the bowls, looked clean. Put back together and


there are many air channels in the carbs, witch can be dirty, clean them with very thin wire, and first bled out the gas, check the 2 diaphragms in the carbs

Old '87 ranger been sitting in folks yard few years. fires up fine, but spits and sputters going down the road


Old fuel in tank, fuel filter clogged, plugged/clogged carb. or fuel injectors.

1. Drain fuel from tank and replace with new fuel with SeaFoam or Lucas

2. Repace fuel filter

3. With engine running at a high idle and air cleaner off, spray or pour carb/fuel injection cleaner into carb/fuel injectors.

If problems persist, check plug wires for cracks and/or breaks. Pull spark plugs checking for fouling.

My 05 shadow sabre starts, runs & idles fine except at high rpm (half to full throttle) air filter & plugs look ok. Has dg pipes and supposedly was rejetted. Just bought the bike & do not know...


i think you are on the right track, i would try draining and refilling tank with fresh gas,if it doesn't help, then likely the main jet has become partially clogged from improper storage or may just be, have you tried running on partial choke to see if it helps, this will comfirm a high speed lean mixture, you could try running a good fuel system cleaner b4 tearing carb apart, i like using a product called seafoam, cleans carb and carbon from engines. 1oz. pergallon. just be happy you only have one carb to mess with my vmax has four, yikes!!!!!!!!!good luc, feel free to e-mail me

Check the condition of the air filter and replace it if dirty. Also, if the spark plugs have more than three or four thousand miles on them, try a new set.

No Power at High RPM


Sounds like a fuel problem, possible stuck needle valve. Did you check for vacuum leaks? How about the fuel itself, did you treat it before storage to prevent gelling and varnish ? If not your entire fuel system may be restricted. Purchase a can of Seafoam...pour in 1/2 of it to a tank of gas, use the other 1/2 on the next tank. Change fuel filter afterwards because any foreign materials will be in the filter from the cleaning process. Third tank normal fill.
Good luck...i hope this helps.
