Question about 2003 Honda VT 750 C2 Shadow

2 Answers

Hello... I have a brand new honda shadow 750 C2 2009. I just had some new bars put on and which required the extention of the clutch and brake cables among other things. I rode it back from the shop but noticed that in 1st gear it was creeping forward and so i adjusted the clutch cable according to the user manual.. only now it stalls when i change into first. i can seem to get the cutch setting right and it will either jump forward or stall straight away now. any advice?

Hi this sounds like the cable is too long now if you have adjusted it right up to its extent (loosened) what is happening is, when you pull the clutch in it opens the clutch plates which in turn allows you to select a gear, when you release the leaver the plates compress giving you the drive, if the plates do not release far enough this is where you will be getting the bite too early, also if it is a wet clutch ( has oil supplied to it) is it at the correct level? it will really be a case of adjusting the cable, make sure you loosen not tighten hope this helps you please vote thanks

Turn screw or thumb nut in or out until there is only a small amount of moment in clutch lever when siting in rest position. pull handle it should move just a little befoe cable moves if this doesn't work you my have to take out and adjust at the lower adjustment at lower clutch lever. there should always be a little moment this tells you your clutch is fully engaged when handle is released . Usually there's an adjustment rod/nut combo at the engine where you can loosen the clutch cable as much as you need to for attachment, and then re-tighten it to what you need.
A lot of times the bracket that holds that adjuster is held on by only a few bolts. Take bolts off, and the whole bracket comes off. Then there's no pressure on the clutch cable at all.
Clutch adjustment on a Shadow is easy - it's a matter of turning the end of the cable where it comes out of the lever, and locking it with the round wheel that jams against the lever housing.

Even in perfect adjustment, you might find it difficult to find and stay in neutral without "overshooting" until you get some time on the bike. Example, downshifting, going from second to neutral, you might overshoot into first, and same going up from first, you might pass neutral and go into second.
In perfect adjustment, you'll probably have a little play in the clutch lever.
Thanks. keep updated for any more query.you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Need to do a tune up on a 2006 750 shadow areo!What's involved?


There reall isn't much to do except change the engine oil and filter, replace the spark plugs, and check the air filter. Other important normal maintenance items are; check all fluid levels (brake fluid, clutch hydraulic fluid, coolant level, final drive oil level), and tire pressures. Your motorcycle requires very little in the way of tune-up maintenance.
