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

2 Answers

My bike will start up and idle just fine, I even get to take off sometimes. The problem I am having is my speedo and lights will stop working intermittently. When this happens my bike has No power at all. The problem happens speratically, no common pattern to when this happens. My battery has been charged up. I am just lost on what this could be.

    Is that on the battery side of the cable? If not where do I need to be looking?

Check your wiring under the seat and anywhere else that the potential lies for movement when the bike is moving. i dont find any tsbs' or recall info. what i do find is alot of praise about this bike. it sounds like a pretty simple problem just tackle it with common sense and ill bet you you will find it within 10 minutes.

This sounds like your idle jet need to be cleaned or replaced, try runing a few tanks of B12 or some other carb/fuel injector cleaner threw it and see if that helps if not you may need to rebuild the carb.

Voltage problem when running bike


The voltage regulator should present 13.5 to 14.5 volts at the battery to charge it properly (engine at fast idle). I'm not sure if the V regulator is adjustable or not. If not, then it probably needs to be replaced. The alternator appears to be trying to do it's job, although it may have an open diode or winding if the alternator is 3-phase. An oscilloscope is the best tool to check for all three phases working properly. Good luck!

Speedo, turn signals, brake lights, horn stopped working. All else is fine.


Gap your plugs to 38 thou. Check all your bulbs (one burned out will affect the rest) Take a look at all your fuses and make sure they are all ok. Otherwise you are probably looking at a wiring short which will require trouble shooting of the elctrical system. Buy your self a service manual for your bike, this will help you a lot.
