Hi, Rockin_hick1 you need to make sure you have no intake leaks by spraying some Brake Kleen, Contact Cleaner, Starting Fluid etc. around the intake manifold and seals, if the RPM's go up or down significantly then you have a leak that needs to be fixed before you can continue with the carburetor adjustment.
The engine should be at operating temperature with the enrichener off to set the idle between 950-1050 rpm. Turn the idle skrew clockwise to increase the idle speed and counterclockwise to decrease the idle speed. If you have access to your air fuel mixture skrew you may turn it as well, if not there is a video below on how to gain access, make sure you start with clean or new spark plugs. Gently turn the air fuel mixture skrew clockwise until it starts to bottom out "STOP" do not over tighten as it will damage the taper on the end, now back the skrew out 1-1/2 full turns to establish a starting point start the engine and check the idle rpm's and turn the idle skrew accordingly for 950-1050 rpm if necessary, turn the air fuel mixture skrew 1/4 turn at a time and let the engine settle for about 10 seconds, turn the skrew clockwise for a leaner mixture and counterclockwise for a richer mixture, you are seeking the highest rpm your air fuel mixture skrew can acquire without going past 3 full turns from bottom then resetting the idle skrew back down to 950-1050 rpm If you can not detect any rpm change and can not stall the engine by turning the air-fuel mixture skrew all the way in then your pilot/low-speed jet is too big and needs to be replaced with the next size smaller. Final adjustment should be made with a clean air filter mounted to the carburetor.

SOURCE: Should I adjust my valves? 1999 Honda Shadow Ace.

Well if its running good and you don't here any out of the ordinary rattling I wouldn't worry about it until at least 25,000-30,000 miles on the bike so probabley in another 10,000 miles or so have the valves adjusted unless you hear any unordinary rattling noises sooner then go in at that point and have them adjusted.

SOURCE: How do you adjust the

On the left side of the motorcycle under the carburetors is a black plastic knob on the end of a cable. If you turn the knob clockwise it will raise the idle speed of both carburetors at the same time. If the idle is too fast, turn the knob counterclockwise to lower the idle speed.

SOURCE: 2002 honda vt 750 shadow spirit one cylinder won't fire what's the problems

Pull the plug out and test it on the frame. If no spark you need new plugs. If it does spark look at the plug. If the plug is black and wet it is getting to much fuel and flooding. You will need to adjust your carb's air to gas mixture.

750 shadow running lean. How do i fix this? Pilot screw adjustment?


why do you think the bike is running lean ? - DOT dictates that the idle srew head be soldered filled to stop tampering ( i believe ) - most bikes run correctly if the carbs are maintained, and kept in adjustment as to factory specs -- normally you will not have to touch them

Will only stay running if choke is pulled all the way out idle screw adjustment has no effect


Take the carburetors apart and clean the slow jets and fuel passageways in the carb bodies. Then bike should idle with out choke.
