2003 honda shadow spirit vt750 carb problem

I just bought the bike a month ago and everything was fine. the other day its starts backfiring on downshifting, so I do a service on it. changed plugs, oil filter and changed oil. I screwed up because I thought the oil drained from the filter so I over filled it bigtime. I drove it to work and still no change. I took off the air filter cover and there was alot of oil in the air filter and breather. Did i really mess something up here? I figure I'll have to adjust the air/fuel mix but did I blow a seal or something?

Buddy dont worry about it what you have done is put to much oil inside the engine and as the piston goes down it cause abit off pressure which in the small space it has when you over filled it the pressure inside has just forced the oil out the breather into the air box just give it a little clean and drop oil aswell bud

SOURCE: 2003 honda shadow spirit vt750 carbs

It is different then most other carbs. DON"T DRILL ANY BRASS HEADS LOOKING FOR THE AIR FUEL MIXTURE. The air fuel mixture is the only adjustment you can make. It is located on the bottom side of the air intake, right behind the air filter box. It looks like a 1/4" flat metal plug. Do NOT drill this. There is no slot for a screw driver. There is a tool which is no more then a small piece of pipe that fits over this plug and you turn it in till seated, gently. Count the turns. Back out to 2 and a half turns, thats normal. Or if you no that you need more fuel injected, simply turn the screw OUT 1/4 or 1/2 turn and try it. GOOD LUCK (Its not hard)
There is no drilling to be done. Hope i didnt scew something up on mine......

2005 Honda Shadow Spirit (750) hesitant and sputtering upon first spring ride. Thoughts?


Just sounds like either a jet is blocked in one of the carbs or maybe a spark plug is fouled up.tap the exhaust down pipes with your hand quickly to see which one isn't getting hot to see which ones not running.

Honda shadow spirit vt750 motorcycle ,2005 model will not run at full throttle


I would check the Diaphragms of the carbs before I did anything else. A tiny pinprick in one of these can cause weird running problems. If that doesn't fix it then look at the ignition timing.

Try this site for all info on your bike and a very good forum.

Carbs sputtering and misfireing on Shadow Spirit VT750 2005


An engine never misfires due to these things. It is always because of maladjustment of the timing at the CB points. Check the timing and set it right.
