Problem with timing on 1994 Honda VT 1100 Shadow


Hi, I can send you a Service Manual over your email.
Any how, you will have to take off the engine if you want to check timing and set it right.
But, are you sure the timing is off, maybe you just need to sync the carbs. When I change the pipes, there was a lot of backfire and I had to change the jets and sync the carbs.

1996 Honda VT 1100 C2 Shadow Sabre oil in the air filter box


Hi, Wayne and the usual suspects are:
1. Oil tank/system overfilled.
2. Faulty breather valve.
3. Engine breather hose bent, pinched, kinked etc.
4. Air filter has too much "pre-oil".
5. Crankshaft seal failure allowing transmission fluid to migrate.
6. Blow by drain tube cracked/split or filled to capacity.

I am considering buying a Honda 750 Shadow Aero with 18,000 miles. My wife looked at it today and said she thought she heard a knocking sound in the engine. It runs fine and because of hearing problems,...


Knocks, Rattles, Whining, Clunks, and Grinding noises coming from the engine are not good signs.

Light Tapping noise could be a few things.

A dirty oil filter will cause the top end to make tapping sound until the oil warms up and, then the noise goes away, that might be why you didn't hear it, but she did at first.

If the valves/rockers continue to make noise, it probably just needs the valve clearance checked & adjusted. If they continue to make noise after this, then its a sign of wear to one or more of the valve componets.(rockers worn, lifters worn etc)

With only 18000 miles, its probably just dirty oil filter.

Valve adjust on 03 honda shadow vt1100c


If the same as 1985-1998 VT 1100 - you have a hydraulic valves, so NO adjusting, if Noise - valve tappets clogged, take out engine oil, use cleaning oil, start engine and run it till tapping goes away.
Then use Motul 10-40W, this one have add of cleaner in and better shifting.
