Question about Honda Motorcycles
I have a 2005 Honda Shadow Spirit (VT750) and just took it out of the garage after a long cold winter. It started and ran fine for the first few miles and then started sputtering a bit: little backfires, limited power and pickup especially in 1st and 2nd, seemed like it was not getting enough gas. I had Stabil in the engine over the winter and full tank. Drove it for a few miles and then filled it up with new gas, thinking it was a bad gas problem. Still, no dice. It runs, but really hesitant and sputtery when I turn the throttle. Any thoughts?
Just sounds like either a jet is blocked in one of the carbs or maybe a spark plug is fouled up.tap the exhaust down pipes with your hand quickly to see which one isn't getting hot to see which ones not running.
