Question about Honda VT 750 Shadow Motorcycles

1 Answer

I just purchased a 1998 Shadow 750. The guy that had it wasn't riding it. We tried to start it, no luck. I emptied all the gas lines (because it was 2 yrs old gas) tried again still no start. It has fire at the plugs.

If it sat for two years with bad gas in it, you will have to take off the carburetors and clean them thoroughly. Make sure all the passageways(slow jet, high speed circuit, carb body,etc.)are clear of gunk. Take the fuel inlet tube for the carburetors and place it into a fuel container and turn the bike on for a few seconds to test that the fuel pump is working. You may also want to change the fuel filter.

Replace your right switch assembly. The starter button is a two position switch. Push it in halfway and the headlight goes out(more power to the starter). Push the button in all the way and the solenoid kicks in. The starter button is causing both problems.
