If the old plugs have them, they will come with the new ones. if the plugs have an angled shoulder where the plugs meet the head, then they require no gasket. if they are square then they use a compression gasket

1983 vt 500 honda shadow. Replaced both head's. Starts fine has good power. Yet it pop's or back fires some times after giving it progressive fuel. What do you think. Thank you!


Three things that can cause popping or backfiring. 1)You may have cracked, leaking,or broken intake manifolds or bad o-rings on the manifolds. 2)Leaking exhaust gaskets in the head or between the head pipe and muffler. 3)Bad spark plug caps and partially fouled plugs. Check it out.

What spark plugs and wires do i need for my 1988 vt 1100 honda shadow?


On this Honda the wires do separate from the coils. The wires with spark plug caps attached are sold separately . They are priced from $35 to $45 each( about $160). You can purchase bulk wire($5-$8 for 6ft Copper plug wire) and NGK spark plug caps ($5 each) and make your own. All materials should be available at your local dealer.

My 1986 Honda shadow backfires on deceleration. How do I fix it


I replaced spark plugs, filters, tightened boots, etc. Nothing worked. Then I dumped Sea Foam in the gas tank. 50 miles later...no more backfiring. I used 1 ounce per gallon. Get it at any auto parts store.

Spark plug well filling with oil.


a new valve cover gasket and o-rings around the wells should have cured this...did you clean the old o-rings off the valve cover completely before installing new ones? this is a common problem with these models.....i would re-check my gaskets and mateing surfaces. valve cover gaskets and spark plug well o-rings are relatively low cost. the spark plug is tight, correct? write back with an update!
