Question about Honda VT 1100 C Motorcycles
Make sure the battery is good, have it tested, the ignition system is very sensitive to even slightly low state of charge due cell sulfating will cause a weak spark that causes hard starting, trust me on this, I have had Japanese bikes for 40 years, a fully charged battery putting out full voltage will crank the engine like crazy on this bike, just because it seems to crank ok doesn't mean the battery is good, have it tested, also keep a maintenance charger on the battery like a "Battery Tender" brand whenever the bike is not in use for more than a few days, any auto parts store will do an electronic load test of the battery to determine the state of the battery, make sure the cells are full before the test, always use distilled water to fill low cells, any cell that goes down faster than the other cells indicates that that cell is sulfated and the battery is defective..
