Take off the left side cover (press fit) . You'll need a screwdriver phillips or flat head and a ten millimeter socket. Remove the bolt on the right side of the bracket to the frame and swing it out of the way. Unbolt the battery cables, unhook the overflow tube, and lift the battery out of the left side of the bike.

I have a 1986 honda shadow 500 vt,and im leaking fuel out of the passenger side overflow tube comin from the passenger side carburator. can anyone give me any ideas why this is happening?


Check to see the float inside that carb is not all gummed up. This happens if you don't use fuel stabilizer. You should remove and clean.
