Back cylinder not firing. swapped coils and checked voltage at coils. generator seems to be pulsing.

To fire up the bike will need gas and a good spark on time.
Do you have a wet spark plugs on rear, if not, you have a carb problem (clogged jets, no fuel in carb chamber, torn diaphragm),
if it is wet, you have a spark plug problem. Take one out and check the spark (in darker room, you can not see the sparks on sunlight)

02 Honda VLX not firing right

Check the Spark plug and the HT leads. These can break down over time and through heat stress.

92 vt600, only back cylinder is firing

How so it isn't fouled? If it is getting any gas at all there should be gasoline on the plug assuming the cylinder is in fact not firing. Is the plug sparking? If so what about the carb? Compression check?

My 1993 honda shadow vt 600 is leaking fuel out of the upper tailpipe what should i do

This is possible, but if the bike isn't bucking then a misfire is unlikely and you just have a leaky carburetor issue.

No spark to rear cylinders runs good and then runs on one cylinder 1986 honda shadow 1100

try switching the position of the two coils, the plug wires will unscrew off of the coils and that way you dont have to pull the spark plug wires too,(be sure and change the 2 wire couplers too) if your front cylinder stops firing you know its the coil, if the back cylinder still doesn't fire then your coil is good and you either have a bad #2 spark unit or a bad crank pulse generator.

I have a 95 honda shadow vt 600 it runs but its missing on the front cylinder any suggestions it has new plugs new fuel filter and fuel battery is about 2 years old but will run the bike

Try new spark plug caps. The resisters often burn out and cause poor running off idle. On some models the caps are part of the wire and are replaced as an assembly out of the coil. To save money use genuine NGK spark plug caps (about $5 each). They simply screw on to the end of the wire. If the cap reads higher or lower than 5000 OHM's it should be replaced. The copper core spark plug wire can be purchased in bulk for $1 to $2 a foot. It can be cut to length and used as an inexpensive replacement for the stock Honda wire/cap assemblies that sell for $25 to $45 each.

1999 Honda VT 600 C Shadow will not start

Hi, Black1192 and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty.
2. The fuel tank has old dead gas.
3. Fuel tank bottom contaminated with ethanol sludge, dirt, water, rust, etc.
4. Fuel supply valve/petcock turned off.
5. Fouled spark plugs.
6. Engine flooded as a result of overuse of the enrichner.
7. Vacuum hose to the fuel supply valve/petcock disconnected, broken, cracked, or pinched.
8. Fuel valve/petcock or filter clogged.
9. Fuel line to carburetor or throttle body pinched, kinked or blocked.
10. Carburetor float stuck.
11. Fuel injectors clogged.
12. Fuel injectors stuck open.
13. 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 cursory 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.
14. 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.
15. Loose or corroded wire connection at the coil or plug between ignition sensor and ECM module.
16. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting check for spark leakage in the dark, cable connections loose, or connected to the wrong cylinders.
17. Ignition timing incorrect due to a faulty ignition coil, ignition module or MAP, CMP, CKP, O2, TPS, ETP, IAC sensors.
18. Faulty neutral, clutch lever, or kickstand safety switch.
19. Faulty fuel pump or fuse or relay.
20. A stuck bent or burnt valve.
21. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
22. Security system not disarming alarm needs a reset.
23. Check for engine trouble codes.
