Friend,
It seems that your bike if having fuel problem. The fuel pump may be getting hot and not supplying enough fuel. Or the HT coil may be getting hot and not giving enough current to the spark plugs. You have to rule out both these points. The "choke keeps it running" phenomenon means that it is not getting enough fuel. So concentrate on the fuel pump. Also clean up the air and petrol jets in the carb.the petrol jet may be blocked.

2005 Honda Shadow Spirit (750) hesitant and sputtering upon first spring ride. Thoughts?


Just sounds like either a jet is blocked in one of the carbs or maybe a spark plug is fouled up.tap the exhaust down pipes with your hand quickly to see which one isn't getting hot to see which ones not running.

I have an 2001 shadow spirit 750 DC . With the choke fully pulled out the bike idles great , but push the choke in and idle gets bad rough and when you give some throttle its rough and will backfire some ....


Clean and inspect the carb diaphragms when you have the carbs apart to clean them. Concentrate on the slow jets and the passage ways behind the slow jets.

How do i adjust the choke on a 2005 honda shadow

Not to sure about this one, ok, if the choke wont stay out, then try to trace the choke cable to the carby, have a close look and see which parts move on the carby when you activate the choke, some thing just needs to be tightened up, so that the choke stays on. Also, you say the bike stalls and runs rough, is this with the choke on? If yes, then that is just a sign that you dont need so much choke on. Just try half choke. Do you live in a warm climate? if so, then you dont need much choke . So there is no adjustment really, only by the amount of choke you apply. Also remember, never use the choke if the engine is already warm. And, only use the choke for the first start of the day, when the engine is stone cold. The correct way to to start a cold bike engine is, pull the choke on fully, crank over engine, but DO NOT give it throttle, (this defeats the purpose of using the choke), when engine fires up and starts, slowly push the choke in till a smooth, high idle is acheived. You should be able to ride off slowly, and push the choke off after about a mile.

2002 honda shadow deluxe custom 750. 100 miles only on this 8yr old bike. When trying to start the bike pull the choke hit the start button and sometimes it would start most of the time engine turns but no...


Sounds like the battery may be weak, recharge and test, maybe replace. As far as starting, most Hondas will not start if you open the throttle any at all. Shadows being liquid cooled are generally cold natured, but you should be able to ride away with the choke on in 1 or 2 minutes, you might have to ride as far as 4 or 5 miles at highway speed before you can take the choke fully off. If it is taking longer than these times, you will need to remove and clean the carbs. the low speed jets may be partially blocked up.

Ok hope you can help, 01 stall's out after a few min. starts good and stay runing most of the time but yesterday I killed the battery due to it not staying started, took it out and recharged it today. Now...


Fuel system may need cleaning, trash in the carbs will sometimes let it idle then bogg or blubber when throtled up especialy under a load.(also makes starting a chore).
