Check and clean your spark plug maybe even replace it. Also clean your carburetor.

It starts, but why doesn't it continue running?


Carburetor is not providing the correct amount of fuel. This can be a number of things. Try the fuel filter first. If you haven't changed it in a while, do so. If that doesn't solve the problem, then the carburetor needs to be rebuilt.

2001 honda shadow 600 running rough and dying


Hi, Steve and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery must have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
2. Faulty alternator/generator and or voltage regulator.
3. Loose or corroded battery terminals and or cables especially the "NEGATIVE" cable, look for loose, corroded, or broken connectors inside the cable harness at "BOTH" ends.
4. Faulty main circuit breaker or ignition switch, check for loose connections and continuity.
5. Faulty system and or ignition relay, check for continuity.
6. Faulty ignition coil, ignition/electronic module.
7. Faulty CKP, CPS, CMP, MAP, TPS, or BAS sensor, corroded, loose or broken wire connector pins/sockets.
8. Throttle cables and or idle speed improperly adjusted hot idle speed should be 950 RPM to 1000 RPM.
9. Faulty neutral, side stand or clutch lever safety switch.
10. Fuel tank empty
11. Fuel tank contaminated with ethanol sludge.
12. Water or dirt in the fuel system, or clogged filter.
13. Restricted, blocked or kinked fuel line.
14. Faulty fuel pump.
15. Faulty pressure regulator.
16. Faulty or clogged fuel injectors.
17. Lean angle switch is faulty or needs adjustment.

My 1100 honda shadow sprit 2002 will not stay running if i have a jump pack it stays running bt as soon as i take the pack off it dies i belive it is the stator


The battery probably has a dead cell and is pulling down your electrical system with it. Start it and disconnect the battery first and then the jump pack and see if it stays running. If it doesn't, then it's the stator. Good luck.

I have a 1986 Honda Aero 50. It starts and runs, but when it is stopped, it dies. Someone mentioned adjusting the idle screw. How do I do that?


The long screw sticking out of the throat of the carb is the throttle screw. Just turn it clockwise to increase the idle speed.

1998 honda shadow will not start


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, a few possibilities you may want to check/explore:
  • stale gasoline;
  • clogged fuel filter (inside the tank above the fuel shutoff valve;
  • clogged, bocked, varnished, gummed carbs, jets, air pin holes;
  • stuffed air filter/box;
  • vacuum leak (rubber coupling, manifold side);
  • air leak (airbox base assembly seated/fitted on the carbs.
Basically, a general cleanup of the fuel lines, tank and the carbs. Sitting for some time tends to leave varnish like coating on most parts.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.
