Question about 2002 Honda VT 750 CD Shadow A.C.E. Deluxe

1 Answer

1988 Honda Shadow Poor Acceleration

I have a 1988 Shadow VT800. It has after market pipes, never been jetted. When I accelerate or bike is under load (up hill for example) I get a hammering affect, like it is only running on 1 cylinder. It cruises fine and light acceleration is ok(maybe a little rough), just when I accelerate. I first thought it was a vibration, but had the shop check it out and everything is fine in the drive mechanism.
The lower the RPM the more prominent the issue is.
I also was wondering about carb synchronization.

You must rejet the carbs to work with aftermarket pipes, which if louder you need bigger jets to deliver more fuel, also, hammering affect under load is usually faulty plugs, which may have carbonized from running to lean

1988 Honda VT 800 owners manual


Hi, Anonymous the vast majority of service, parts fiche, and owners manuals on the internet are "FREE" to download and all service manuals contain wiring diagrams in the back pages. The rest usually charge a modest fee around $10 to $15 and there is a handful of obscure, rare, obsolete, and very old models that are no longer or never were available, for these rare occasions I shall look on eBay and find the cheapest one available. Most of the manuals will cover your exact make, model, and year otherwise one will be provided that comes as close as possible to your bike and will have most of the same info that an exact manual would have. If there is no $ sign after the manual link it is free to download for viewing or printing. To download your manual please click on the blue links below. Good luck and have a wonderful day
