Question about 2003 Honda VT 750 CD Shadow A.C.E. Deluxe

2 Answers

Just took my VT750 into shop for backfire issues.

Just took my Spirit VT750 into shop for backfire issues. It seemed better for the first few blocks, but was idling at 1200 rpm. Turned the idle screw down a little and its still backfiring when letting off or down shifting. Did i screw it up or did my mechanic rip me off?

Just go back to the mechanic,you need to be sure he cleaned the tank, fuel lines and filter. the backfiring is probably the result or trash making its way to the carburetor. They should be cleaned again,to be sure,if more trash keeps showing up you need to seal or replace the source of fouling.(otherwise you will not ride) Once the cleaning is done the condition of the parts involved should be concidered. Look for damaged seals,loose nuts or bolts on intake, check the carburetor mounts closely for fit and sealed,(any air not controled is a problem.) Sometimes backfire is the result of cool air entering into the hot gassified exhaust,where it promptly explodes! Stoping this air could also eliminate backfiring.(Check for hot air getting out of the exhaust system)from header flange to the weep holes,replace any damaged parts tighten up any others.Please let us know how you do.

I would probably take it back to the mechanic and ask, the high reving could be loose or cracked inlet manifolds or a clamp left loose, this can cause backfire as well as that cylnder runs lean, other causes of back fire are, lean fuel issues, low ignition voltage, leaks in exhaust gasket or exhaust, incorrect valve clearance, just on downshift try manifolds and exhaust first

I want to remove back seat is there a part to buy for where the seat is removed from


Hi, Janice not sure about that I know some guys will sometimes velcro a wide piece of leather(fender bibs) to hide new paint versus faded paint discoloration or seat scratches for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your problem.

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.

2005 Honda VT750 Spirit has absolutely no power. No lights, no gauge lights, no head light. Starter does not click. Checked the battery cables and all fuses including the in line 30 amp. All are fine. It...


Did you test the battery voltage to see if its okay? If its fine...test for voltage on both sides of the main fuse...then with key on test for voltage at the fuse block.
If you have no voltage at the fuse block...inspect wiring around ignition switch for damage or try wigging the key in case switch contacts burnt.

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
