Question about 2002 Honda VT 750 CD Shadow A.C.E. Deluxe

1 Answer

2002 Honda VT 750 CD Shadow makes a "clunking sound" in 1st thru 3rd gear

My shadow makes a "clunking sound" in 1st thru 3rd gears at slower speeds. OK highway riding, and only when the bike is moving, not while revving in neutral. Any thoughts? "Clunking rate increases with speed, up to 4th and 5th gear.

SOURCE: 97 honda cbr 600f3 shifting, gears, etc.

It should be 1 down and 5 up. About the 5500rpm at 85... That sounds about right with stock gearing. Let me know if i can help further. Good luck and happy holidays. Jay

SOURCE: Problem with the shifting

You have bent shift forks. I would replace all the forks in this case. This is a job for the shop. You would not want to tackle it at home. Most guys who do wind up taking a box of parts to the dealer. The repair costs more that way than if you just take them the bike.
Sorry for your problem.

Pleas rate this solution. Thanks!

SOURCE: When I downshift to 3rd gear to pass a car, wind

This sounds more like the carbs than the coil pack, but is unusual that 3 would go dead all at the same time unless it was one side of the ignition. The only time I have had 3 go out was when i had to fix the ignition. I have had to rebuild the carb assy out because of junk in the carbs, but it didn't affect 3 at a time.

SOURCE: won't accelerate in 4th gear

there is so many things that could cause what you are going through. the first thing i would do i check the clutch. it is where most problems with the tranny start and then you will get so a hole at the shop telling you that your tranny is bad when all that was wrong is the clutch being out of adjustment. take it to a shop you trust and have them check the clutch. it is a cheap process and does not take long to do at all. if it needs adjusting then you will be done and out without having to spend too much at all. if its more then you will be able to find out there. first thought though is the clutch.

Pull the plug out and test it on the frame. If no spark you need new plugs. If it does spark look at the plug. If the plug is black and wet it is getting to much fuel and flooding. You will need to adjust your carb's air to gas mixture.

Have 98 Vt 600 CD, it appears to have only 4 gears, is this correct


Yes. The gear shift pattern is usually stamped on the side of the engine case next to the shifter. Early VT600 Shadows were 4 speed transmissions. When you are in top gear on most Honda's you can move the shift pedal up with no resistance while driving. It is a way I use to check that I am in top gear when driving at slower speeds.

My 2006 750 Honda Shadow starts up right away but when I go to put her in gear she cuts off.


Make sure the kickstand is up before going into gear, it is like that for safety, she will shut down if it left down.

Gear selector honda shadow


Sounds like a bent shift fork or two. Replacing the bad shift forks is major surgery and is NOT recommended for the inexperienced mechanic. Several special tools are needed. The top end and gearbox get totally torn down just to get to the shift forks. This is a very expensive repair, guessing $2100 or so at the dealers. Bummer. Contact a few dealers to cofirm my view of the problem and the probable repair cost. The shift forks move left and right as the shift drum is rotated when you lift or push down on the shift pedal.
