Your petcock is vacuum operated. Gasoline leaking from the vent hole indicates that the vacuum diaphram is ruptured. A new petcock assembly is needed.

I need to replace the o ring (petcock) on my 2004 honda shadow aero and need to know if i need to remove tank or maybe get special tool to remove petcock


Drain the tank. You should be able to remove the petcock by simply turning the nut holding it on or turning the whole petcock assembly. It may be stuck in place by the o-ring/fuel filter inserted into the tank. Be sure the filter is in place when you put the petcock back on or you will have problems with leaking gas out the carburetor overflows (from tank rust getting into the carburetors). Chances are the leaking gas is not form the tank sealing o-ring, but from the vacuum diaphragm assembly attached to the back of the petcock. Part # 5 on the microfiche.

I have a 2004 Honda vt750 Shadow Aero. It sat for a few months (all winter). I didn't put any fuel stabilizer in the tank, nor any seafoam. The motocycle starts rough, but when I twist the throttle it...


The carbs will need to come off and be cleaned. They are gummed up causing the stalling. The petcock will need to be replaced, it is not rebuildable

2003 honda shadow 750 ace water pump gasket leaking. Can I replace the gasket only?


There is a round o-ring that seals the water pump to the motor (oil seal). Then there is a shaped cover o-ring that seals anti-freeze into the pump. The cover o-ring is also replaceable. If your pump has coolant leaking it is probably coming from a small weep hole in the bottom of the pump. Check where the leak is carefully, my guess is that the water pump seal is bad and you actually need to replace the water pump assembly. To see a break down of the pump look here.

My wife has a 750 honda shadow spirit 2003 dc that is leaking gas at the boot that fits from the bottom of the carb. to the front cylindar what is causing it and how do i fix it


This sounds to me like a carb float being stuck open. Turn off the gas and drain the offending carb(s). Next, turn the gas back on and sharply tap the float bowl with the plastic handle of a screwdriver as the fuel bowl refills. The goal here is to vibrate the float to free it up. If doing this process a couple of times does not free the float I would remove the carb(s) and clean with a spray carb cleaner. Clean the air filter then re-mount carb(s). Next Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, ( not all bikes have a water trap bowl ). Install an inline fuel filter.

THis should solve the problem.
Please rate this answer. Thanks smatthews!
