SOURCE: Valve specs for VT 500 honda shadow 1983

Hi,
Your valve clearances should be:
Intake .08-.12 mm (.003-.005 in)
Exhaust .12-.16 mm (.005-.006 in)
I usually start all gaps in the middle of given specs, then fine tune from there.
Hope this helps

What else have you done or checked besides the plugs. Does it start and idle fine? Test the new plugs. The ark should be bright blue or between 7 to 8 ohms. If the ark is yellow or orange, you may have a bad plug or coil.

Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting check for leakage in the dark, cable connections loose, or connected to the wrong cylinders.
