Question about 1985 Honda VT 500 C Shadow
I was given a 85 Honda vt700c shadow free from a customers. Its been sitting in a covered shed I have no idea how long its been sitting however the inspection tags say 03 so at worst its been 6 years. I replaced the battery, oil, gas. With full choke it will start but idles very low under 1000. After a few min it dies. Im going through the shop manual but am at a loss as I dont want to do anything with I will regret later. Any ideas on what I should or can do without taking to a shop? fyi you had no vt700c models listed in your products so i had to choose a 500 to submit this question.
Since its starting with choke on try to adjust the idling screw and see what happens ..does it die or stays running.
Best would be to clean the carburator/s, after sitting for tht long gum must have formed in the float chamber and the jets.
