Question about 2005 Honda VT 750 Shadow Aero

1 Answer

I have purchased a new battery for my 2004 Honda Aero and something is draining it. It sure sounds like the starter to me, although several people seem to think it may be a short some where. After having the new battery recharged, she almost started but once again was drained and went back to the "clicking". I have power to my lights, but not enough to turn the engine. I would think its the starter..if so, I need some assistance in replacing it. Thanks

I would say not the starter or otherwise as soon as the battery is connected the engine would turn.
I would say if when you touch the battery lead to the battery you get a spark, check the regulator box.
Hope that fixes it.

I have a 2004 honda shadow aero. When I was riding lasst weekend the bike shut off like it ran out of gas. It would turn back on, but when I gave it throtle it would die. I let it sit for a few hours and...

Sounds like the battery is dying. A low battery and/or bad stator or bad regulator will cause the battery to get low on voltage. Although enough to start the bike and idle, it will loose power to the coils under heavy throttle.

Check the brake light switches, especially the rear,
and basically the whole wiring harness, including any accessories.
Those problems can be tough to solve.

I need to replace the o ring (petcock) on my 2004 honda shadow aero and need to know if i need to remove tank or maybe get special tool to remove petcock

Drain the tank. You should be able to remove the petcock by simply turning the nut holding it on or turning the whole petcock assembly. It may be stuck in place by the o-ring/fuel filter inserted into the tank. Be sure the filter is in place when you put the petcock back on or you will have problems with leaking gas out the carburetor overflows (from tank rust getting into the carburetors). Chances are the leaking gas is not form the tank sealing o-ring, but from the vacuum diaphragm assembly attached to the back of the petcock. Part # 5 on the microfiche.

Just purchased a 2004 Shadow Aero. No owners manual. What type oil do I use for oil change. How many qts does it take?

Use only a JASO MA certified motorcycle oil. 10w-40 for cold climate . 20w-50 for warm climate and touring. Do not use any oil that says Energy Conserving on the label , it will shorten the life of your wet clutch and transmission gears. Synthetic oil will help your bike run cooler and shift easier. you will need 4 quarts , an oil filter , and a drain plug washer. You will probably need 3.4 quarts. Drain the oil, pour in 3 quarts of oil, run the motor to fill the oil filter, check the dipstick or window with the bike on the center stand , and top up as needed.
