Question about 2002 Honda VT 750 CD Shadow A.C.E. Deluxe
Its starts backfiring because battery loses power bought a new battery back fire with 38 miles cut off its like the new battery is dead
Certainly sounds like alternater or regulator failure to me you can test thes items useing a multimeter conected to the output side of the alternater if it shows voltage wich is the same as the specs in your workshop manual if you dont have one it would be a worthwhile investment if you intend to do your own repairs now move to the regulator and test it for output voltage . youcan do asimpler test by conecting the multimeter to the battery once you have charged it up start the machine and increase the revs the multimeter should show between12.5 &14 volts ifit is showing above 14 volts it will definately be the regulator that is faulty if it is showing less or no charge at all you will need to test both alternater & regulator best of luck Regards Geoff

There are fuses to check, and a voltage regulator. Test the fuses, dont just see if they look ok. Wires from the stator to the volt regulator often get very hot if they tarnish or corrode,check them and the connectors for heat damage,clean them or replace them (it is recomended to solder the new end to the wire to get the best performance). the stator output can be measured in volts AC this power reading is done from one to the other to the next until all combinations have been noted on the wires from the stator, not to ground! ( isolate these wires with the engine running around 1500 rpms when reading volts AC.) after the stator comes the v-reg. it's output has been rectified to DC.this is where the battery gets its charge from.If you need more directions just give a shout
