Could be your stator failing. How are your connections? Are they clean and tight? Have you measure the resistance of the coils? That is a good place to start. Test coils and see if they are putting out power. Test stator to coil to see if stator is putting out power to your coils.
One other thing you can do is if you have injectors on this bike is to measure the injector pulse to see if the injectors are spraying fuel into each cylinder. Or remove the injector sligtly out of the cylinder and see if it is spraying fuel.

2009 Honda Shadow Aero ran fine yesterday, stopped for about 3 hours would not start last night. Turned over would not start, help?


sounds like a CDI issue!
could also be an ignition switch or run/stop switch issue.
is the bike lacking any power when running?
Maybe stator pick-up coil as well.
Have electrical components checked at the dealer.

I HAVE A HONDA 2005 HONDA SHADOW AERO. RAN FINE YESTER DAY. WENT TO START IT THIS MORNING AND FORGOT TO PULL OUT CHOKE IT STARTED THEN DIED. PULLED THE CHOKE STARTED UP AND RAN FOR 45 SECONDS AND THEN...


You have 2 solutions : take out the spark plugs and dry them with cloth, put them back in and start the bike.
Or, leave the bike over the night and the excess fuel on spark plugs will evaporate.
If the engine is hot and you have this problem, just leave the bike for half an hour and start it.

I recently changed the oil on my 2005 Honda Shadow 750 Aero, the next day riding home from work my bike died as if it was not getting gas. It immediately fired back up and I began to ride home, it happened...


If you have a fuel pump, that could be the problem. If the pump is not working, only 1 cylinder will get some fuel. Maybe water came into electrical part of the pump and shot the fuse, just check the pump operation.

Sounds like you need a new pump Chevrolet don't have a reset button they have a fuse on the fire wall under the hood passenger side .check fuel pressure remember 35 to 60 psi to run correctly.

My 2002 chevy 1500 van , 4.3 liter v6, will not fire. ran great, no signs of trouble leding up to now. Cranks,cranks, & cranks but no sputter, fire, anything


I would check and be sure I had fire to the plugs and fuel to the throttle body. I read what you wrote about the fuel pump but then on the end of the description where you put gas in the van the pump might not be working. If so you could have a bad wire to the fuel pump or a plugged fuel filter. Once you verify those items I would pull the 02 sensor ahead of the catalytic converter in the exhaust and make sure the cat or muffler is not plugged. If they are it will put back pressure on the engine and not allow fuel into the cyl. to fire.

Ok. got a '99 clio rxe with the 1.6ltr 8V engine which has developed misfire. coils fine, spark getting to plug fine, and after changing plugs around I know plugs work fine also. Ran fuel cleaner through...


That's a good starting point. Make sure the injector electrically working (getting signal to fire) If so take a fuel pressure test to see if the fuel psi is within spec. If not (high psi) the injector is probably your cause. (usually not firing, electrical)

THE REAR CYLINDER IS NOT FIREING AT ALL, CHANGED OUT BATTERY CLEANED SPARK PLUG HAD CARBS CLEANED, ONLY HAS 5K ON A 1999 AREO 1100? WHAT COULD BE THE PROBLEM


Check for these three necessary elements: spark, fuel, and compression. In order of likelyhood, 1)There's either a plugged up carburetor, 2) defective spark plug, or 3) lack of compression on the non-functioning cylinder.
