Question about 1999 Honda VT 1100 C Shadow Spirit

1 Answer

Crashed now doesn't run

How do I properly time my 1999 honda shadow vt1100? I dumped the bike in the sand, when it was laying on it's left side it was still running. I shut it off, picked it up and waited a few then started back up. went about 100 yards then shut down. Since then it will only idle, if I hit the throdle, it dies. When it is idling it sounds as good as before. Does it sound like a carb isue? I know the timing is off so how do I set the timing on it as well?

You probably knocked the carbs when it went over - check for air leaks at the manifold - that will give the symptom you describe.
Go for the big things first - get it running before you try and tune it...

A squeak in the left side of engine on my Honda vt 1100 shadow. motor bike


Hi, Brad I would love to help you with your engine or chassis noise but I just loaned my brand new pair of listening ears to your local dealer's chief technician so he could take your bike for a test ride and give you his professional opinion and estimate about your noise and repair cost. If you are a little short on "DRACHMA" and a Dealership is not on your list of fun places to visit then perhaps the list below will help soothe your worried mind so you can make an informed decision.
1. Bearings---SCREECH
2. Belts---CHIRP
3. Brake Rotors---BUZZ
4. Chains---RATTLE
5. Clutches---CHATTER
6. Shifting Trans---CLUNK
7. Gears---WHINE
8. Front Forks---PLUNK
9. Rear Shocks---SQUEAK
10. Starters---CLICK
11. Solid Lifters---TICK
12. Hydraulic Lifters---TAP
13. Pistons---SLAP
14. Connecting Rods Go---KNOCK-KNOCK---who's there, it's me "*****"

Start the engine, after some time the radiator must be warm and later hot, then the fan must go ON, if not, you are short with cooling liquid or you have the air bubble in the system, you can let the bubble out if you unscrew the bolt on the thermostat housing which is under the metal cover on the front left side of gas tank, unscrew that (m10) bolt while bike running- slowly, when water drops come out, your system is full.

First try to sync the carbs (link 1), if you can not balance them, then you have to rejet the slow and main jet. Do not drive the bike without sync the carbs, overheating can destroy cylinder, rings, cam chain etc.
