Question about 2000 Honda VT 600 C Shadow
I have 2000 vlx 600; idles just fine, however, when i roll on the throttle the engine stalls and cuts-off.
Clean air filter fuel filter and fuel tank and lines. Then the varb needs to have the bowl removed to allow the float to be removed,(carefull to not loose fuel needlle or retaining spring.)The jet and orfaces should be cleaned (when the jet is removed be sure the seat for jet goes back the same way....the seat and jet have a rounded shape that fits closely together, not round and flat together.)Ok so be sure not to adjust anything, just clean it and put it back together.Using carb cleaner is the best, you should have mot of the can leftover.Dont let it get on anything (except the carburetor) it will ruin paint and the finish on your engine if you let it!

Throttle Body Cleaning
You can in most cases repair this slow speed stall or unstable idle by cleaning the engine throttle valve and the idle speed control valve using a product called CRC Spray Throttle valve cleaner. Spray the cleaner into the air intake of the engine with the hose removed from the throttle body, the engine will try to stall so hold up the idle speed manually. Once you have used up about 1/2 can of the cleaner stall the engine out while spraying and turn the key off, disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 minutes and then reconnect and drive the car for a about 25 miles of varied driving modes. If this doesn't cure the problem you may need the fuel injectors professionally cleaned by the dealer service dept.
