Question about 1984 Honda VT 500 C Shadow
Bike seems to only be running on one cylinder as acceleration is very slow and bike tops out at about 50 MPH. Bike was running perfect then started acting up while I was riding it. I have tried changing the plugs and adjsting carb(s), I am next going to replace air filter and check for compression because I think a head gasket might have blown. Bike only has 6900 miles. I was just wondering if there was anything I overlooked that could cause this problem. Thanks.
Why do you suspect the head gasket?
yes you should check if it has compression.
put another spark plug in the lead of the side thats not working, ground it on the frame and make sure it has spark.
