Failure to idle (or even start/ run) without the choke is indicative of dirty carb(s), partially clogged slow jet. Leaving a bike to sit with un-stabilized fuel is inviting problems, ethanol is the culprit.

SOURCE: stator removal honda

There is a tool that is used, it looks like a steering wheel puller or flywheel puller. Loosen the nut, a strap tool is handing to hold the stator still while you loosen the nut. Then using the removal tool, you pull this off. reassemble by tighting the nut. You should be able to get a puller at autozone in the loan a tool program. I hope this helps

SOURCE: 2000 honda 1100 shadow spirit. Rough idle, little power.

Replace the spark plug caps and try again. On Honda's the cap is often part of the wire (a dealer part) NGK makes some inexpensive plug caps about $5 each. They should OHM out to 5000 anything above or below and you need to replace them. This should fix the problem.

1999 honda vt1100 running lean


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.

I have a 1997 vt1100 american classic,does all the vt 1100 use the same batterys.


If the american classic is the ACE model, 1995 - 2000 is the same and 2001 -2007 is the same, there are officially 18 different vt1100 models, the shadow spirit 1985 - 1997 is the same, 1998 - 2000 are the same and 2001 - 2007 are the same.

Will only run in full choke mode


Try a fuel additive to clean the system, also if the airfilter is dirty or damp, this can cause problems.
You may even have a rust problem in the barrels.
Or even the engine oil may have thickened causing a resistance in the crank bearings, so flush the engines oil ways if other solutions don't work.
