2005 Honda Shadow Spirit (750) hesitant and sputtering upon first spring ride. Thoughts?


Just sounds like either a jet is blocked in one of the carbs or maybe a spark plug is fouled up.tap the exhaust down pipes with your hand quickly to see which one isn't getting hot to see which ones not running.

I have a 2005 Honda VT 750 DC Shadow Spirit, and won't start up when cold and the battery dies/no mo juice after a couple of tryes, can I jump start it with a battery on a idleing car?


DO NOT EVER jump start with car, car battery hase too much power, you will blow your fuses and maybe even ecu if your bika hase it. Thry charging your battery when it's off the bike. But you should buy new one.
Usually battery for bikes last 3-4 year and need to be changed.

2007 Honda Shadow Spirit VT1100c exhaust leak at cylinder head and it backfires


Hi, Ltbuerkle #8 looks good and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
2. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
3. Faulty main circuit breaker and or connections.
4. Faulty ignition coil and or connections.
5. Faulty spark plug, oil or gas fouled, wrong heat range or service type, wrong gap, loose in the cylinder head, broken electrode or insulator.
6. Faulty spark plug cables, leaking or broken, internal damage check for spark leakage in the dark.
7. Faulty ignition module, switch, CKP, MAP, CMP, sensor and or any connector in the ignition circuit could have corroded, loose, or broken pins/sockets
8. Burnt exhaust valve or air leak in the exhaust system.

I have an 2001 shadow spirit 750 DC . With the choke fully pulled out the bike idles great , but push the choke in and idle gets bad rough and when you give some throttle its rough and will backfire some ....


Clean and inspect the carb diaphragms when you have the carbs apart to clean them. Concentrate on the slow jets and the passage ways behind the slow jets.

2000 honda 1100 shadow spirit. Rough idle, little power.


Replace the spark plug caps and try again. On Honda's the cap is often part of the wire (a dealer part) NGK makes some inexpensive plug caps about $5 each. They should OHM out to 5000 anything above or below and you need to replace them. This should fix the problem.

Leaking gas badly from carb. 2003 750 shadow spirit


The gas has varnished and turned to ****. You need to take it to a shop and have the carbs cleaned. Next time you decide to store the bike put fuel stabilizer in the tank and run the bike untill the stabilizer gets into the carbs. When you want to store it, turn the gas off and let the bike run all the remaining gas in the carbs out. That is your best bet. Chaz Moto DC

Cruises fine for 30 minutes then starts to lose power and backfir


Check the fuel system, see if you have a clogged filter or sock (behind the pet-****). You can also check the plugs too. They should be around 7k OHMS. Either your loosing spark or fuel.

Bike not firing properly, plugs fouled


If you used the choke to start the bike last winter, you probably fouled the plugs. Depending on the age of the plugs, you can either clean and re-gap them or replace them with new, which also have to be checked for gap.
Secondly, if you did not run the bike out of fuel after starting it, chances are you have some build up in the carb jets. New, clean fuel and Techron or Seafoam gas treatment will help if it's not too bad. Follow directions on the can. I personally used Seafoam but Techron is recommended by Honda. Be sure to mix per instructions, which on Seafoam is 1 oz. per gal.
