Question about 2005 Honda VT 750 Shadow Aero

1 Answer

I went over some substantial speed-bumps where the bottom struck and scratched. I had to go about 2 kms/hr. so it would not happen (seriously!). Everything was fine (stopped at a store for about 10 minutes before going home) until I got home (thankfully) and shut the bike off to open the garage door. When I started the bike and went to put into first gear, the bike would keep stalling - no jump or engaging sound. I also tried second or third gear and a grinding noise sounded before stalling. It's almost as if the clutch is not working?? I will have to have it towed to a service station if I can't find out what the problem is. I was going to check cables/wires under the seat to see if anything had come loose?? Please help - Thank you!

Hi, it seems you have faulty clutch from the description you made concerning the grinding noise when you tried 2nd and 3rd gear which i thinks is as a result of the stuck and scratch you had on the speed bump. And if you try riding it in its present state, you will end up damaging the gear box...

Now if your engine stalls when you drop into 1st gear, with the clutch disengaged, then the clutch plates are stuck together. Normally in this case, before starting the engine, try putting the transmission in 2nd or 3rd gear (But you already have a problem doing that which is also as a result of the faulty clutch), pull the clutch in and roll the bike forward and backward a few times to free the stuck plates. Meanwhile fresh gasoline maybe all you need..

In summary, a clutch problem....

Hi I have my transmission of mercury mystique 1995 ,it shift from gear 1 to 2 easily and from 2 to 3 easily but when the car speed close to 80 kms/hr it start to shout and the engine speed jump to 4000 RPM...


is your transmission a automatic or standard ? Do you have a check engine light on ? If it is a automatic, was the service you had done a drain and fill or a complete flush, and finally what do you mean it start to shout

The speedometer needle jumps erraticaly then back to the original speed causing the transmission to shift down to first gear then back up again. So far this has only happened at low speeds(20 to 40 kms/hr]


Sounds like the vehicle speed sensor isn't relaying a continuous signal. I would have it checked, and check with GM involving any technical service bulletins or recalls involving erratic odometer operation.

It sounds as if you may have a short in the wire harness, or a bad plug on one of the sensors. This is common. Make sure the sensor connections are clean then use die-electric grease on them where they make contact.
