Question about 1988 Honda VT 1100 C Shadow
When I accelerate in 3rd gear my bike jerks and makes a clicking sound as soon as I get out of 3rd I rides great, no problems what so ever.
Hi, Wardybmf I would love to help you with your engine or chassis noise but I just loaned my brand new pair of listening ears to your local dealer's chief technician so he could take your bike for a test ride and give you his professional opinion and estimate about your noise and repair cost. If you are a little short on "DRACHMA" and a Dealership is not on your list of fun places to visit then perhaps the list below will help soothe your worried mind so you can make an informed decision.

Shifting Fork may be bent or wore out, It also may be the Synchronizer that "holds" it in gear went bad. The Gear could be wore out or Warpped also.

Sounds like a lean condition. Spark plug should be a tan brown.
I would say the carb probably wasn't drained prior to storage and your main jet is gummed up. Gas deteriorates very quickly especially in vented containers like the float bowl of a carb.
clean your carb for sure.

it will be down to adjustment, there are 2 ways to adjust one close to the engine casing and one at the lever just have to get a good balance :)

Testimonial: "Exactly what i needed to know thankyou!"
This issue is common on some bikes because of the new emission laws. They tend to run to lean at certain revs to meet the new emission rules. Fitting a power commander will stop the fuel system leaning out.
