1993 HONDA SHADOW VLX 600, STARTS RUNS FOR 5 MINUTES AND DIES, I CHECKED EVERYTHING FUEL RELATED,IT'S NOT A FUEL PROBLEM


From your description you can be fairly certain it is an electronic problem.

I had a similar problem once with my Honda CX500. I found the connections to the ignition module had gone green and a good clean up restored normal running.

Engine shuts off


Next time it dies, remove your gas cap.

See if it starts up again.

If so, the gas tank vent is plugged up/vent hose pinched, and you're vapor locking.

You need to take off your carburetor , disassemble it, and clean the jets (specifically the slow jet) and the passageways in the carburetor body that feed the gas to the carburetor throat. Carefully set your air screw setting back to stock setting. and reassemble. Inspect the intake manifold and air box tubes for cracks and separations. That should get you idling again.
