Hi, Earl and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery, should have 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a "LOAD" test "WARNING" you can have 12.5 volts or better but little or zero amps and the battery must be replaced.
2. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
3. Faulty main circuit breaker and or connections.
4. Faulty ignition coil and or connections.
5. Faulty spark plug, oil or gas fouled, wrong heat range or service type, wrong gap, loose in the cylinder head, broken electrode or insulator.
6. Faulty spark plug cables, leaking or broken, internal damage check for spark leakage in the dark.
7. Faulty ignition module, switch, CKP, MAP, CMP, sensor and or any connector in the ignition circuit could have corroded, loose, or broken pins/sockets
8. Burnt exhaust valve or air leak in the exhaust system.

I own a 2000 honda shadow vlx 600 and am getting backfire any solutions on how to fix the problem


Backfire is a problem? I like it!

If you don't you might want to first check to make sure the exhaust headers are properly tightened to the head. Replace gaskets if needed, as exhaust leaks can cause this. Another potential cause is an over-lean pilot circuit. You might need 1 size bigger pilot jet.

1983 vt 500 honda shadow. Replaced both head's. Starts fine has good power. Yet it pop's or back fires some times after giving it progressive fuel. What do you think. Thank you!


Three things that can cause popping or backfiring. 1)You may have cracked, leaking,or broken intake manifolds or bad o-rings on the manifolds. 2)Leaking exhaust gaskets in the head or between the head pipe and muffler. 3)Bad spark plug caps and partially fouled plugs. Check it out.

I have a 2000 Honda VT1100 Sabre Shadow. It's got aftermarket Vance and Hines pipes. It continues to have a backfire when moving up through the gears. I've had the jets (and K&N filter and plugs)...


When you installed the Vance and Hines pipes did you use new gaskets? Popping and backfiring is often caused by leaking copper o-rings in the head to head pipe connection , or head pipe to muffler gasket. Sealing the system will prevent oxygen igniting the unburned fuel in the exhaust pipe. Hopefully , this is all you need to stop the popping.

When at idle it shuts off and while down shifting it backfires


You may be experiencing ethanol fuel , it can lower your idle. Use the idle adjust screw on the carburetors to raise the isle enough it wont kill. If the carbs are dirty use a fuel system cleaner in the tank like Chevron Techron to clean the varnish/gum out of the carbs. Backfiring is caused by air leaks in the exhaust system , usually the copper o-rings in the exhaust port where the pipe plugs into the head. Sometimes a bad gasket between the head pipe and the muffler is the cause of the backfire. When exhaust systems are replaced the gaskets are often reused , when they fail you get air leaks that cause popping and backfiring.

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.

2000 Honda VT 600 C Shadow backfires at low speed


Hi, Firewalke610 and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
2. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
3. Faulty main circuit breaker and or connections.
4. Faulty ignition coil and or connections.
5. Faulty spark plug, oil or gas fouled, wrong heat range or service type, wrong gap, loose in the cylinder head, broken electrode or insulator.
6. Faulty spark plug cables, leaking or broken, internal damage check for spark leakage in the dark.
7. Faulty ignition module, switch, CKP, MAP, CMP, sensor and or any connector in the ignition circuit could have corroded, loose, or broken pins/sockets
8. Burnt exhaust valve or air leak in the exhaust system.
