Question about 2002 Honda VT 750 CD Shadow A.C.E. Deluxe
You need to take the carburetors off the machine and open them up. Pull the jets out, make sure they are clear and you can see through them. Squirt carburetor cleaner through the passageways in the carburetor body and blow the passageways out. That is where the carburetor dirt is hiding. Use genuine Honda carburetor cleaner . Gumout is too harsh for Keihin carbs. If you want to try to clean the carburetors without disassembly buy some Chevron Techron and pour it directly into the bowls. Let it sit over night. Drain your gas tank and follow the directions on the bottle to mix 1 gallon of gasoline in a shock treatment. Pour the shock treatment in the tank , start the bike, slowly take the choke off, and run it till it idles on it's own (usually 5-10 minutes). Be careful not to let the pipes get too hot or they may blue. Then take it for a 5-10 mile drive and fill the gas tank. If the carburetors are not too bad this should clean them up. Other wise you will have to take them apart to clean them properly.
