Question about 2001 Honda VT 750 DC Shadow Spirit

1 Answer

I have an 2001 shadow spirit 750 DC . With the choke fully pulled out the bike idles great , but push the choke in and idle gets bad rough and when you give some throttle its rough and will backfire some . New plugs didnt help so I guess its the carbs. Could it be a bad diafram or a vac leak?

Clean and inspect the carb diaphragms when you have the carbs apart to clean them. Concentrate on the slow jets and the passage ways behind the slow jets.

I have a 2005 Honda VT 750 DC Shadow Spirit, and won't start up when cold and the battery dies/no mo juice after a couple of tryes, can I jump start it with a battery on a idleing car?


DO NOT EVER jump start with car, car battery hase too much power, you will blow your fuses and maybe even ecu if your bika hase it. Thry charging your battery when it's off the bike. But you should buy new one.
Usually battery for bikes last 3-4 year and need to be changed.

How do i adjust the choke on a 2005 honda shadow

Not to sure about this one, ok, if the choke wont stay out, then try to trace the choke cable to the carby, have a close look and see which parts move on the carby when you activate the choke, some thing just needs to be tightened up, so that the choke stays on. Also, you say the bike stalls and runs rough, is this with the choke on? If yes, then that is just a sign that you dont need so much choke on. Just try half choke. Do you live in a warm climate? if so, then you dont need much choke . So there is no adjustment really, only by the amount of choke you apply. Also remember, never use the choke if the engine is already warm. And, only use the choke for the first start of the day, when the engine is stone cold. The correct way to to start a cold bike engine is, pull the choke on fully, crank over engine, but DO NOT give it throttle, (this defeats the purpose of using the choke), when engine fires up and starts, slowly push the choke in till a smooth, high idle is acheived. You should be able to ride off slowly, and push the choke off after about a mile.

Sounds like the battery may be weak, recharge and test, maybe replace. As far as starting, most Hondas will not start if you open the throttle any at all. Shadows being liquid cooled are generally cold natured, but you should be able to ride away with the choke on in 1 or 2 minutes, you might have to ride as far as 4 or 5 miles at highway speed before you can take the choke fully off. If it is taking longer than these times, you will need to remove and clean the carbs. the low speed jets may be partially blocked up.

AERO 750 STALLS EVEN AFTER WARMUP - IDLE LOW ?


The idle is a great place to start. If you have a normal bike with no engine mods ie exhaust, jet work then you need to screw the idle screw all the way in, then back it out 2 and a half turns.
