If your bike has been in storage for the winter you may have fuel that has gone bad. Even if you had stabilizer in it. The Fuel pump could be the problem, but it would not be my first guess. The carb is the first and most likely location for the issues. The jets are very small and clog very easy. You may need a rebuild kit. You could try cleaning the carb again. Use guitar string through all of the tiny ports on the jets. Also the petcock may have become clogged. Also check the fuel lines they could dry rot and cause issues.

    I fought this prob for about a mounth and pulled and cleaned tank, filters and overhauled carb on and on. CHECK that the manual choke cable needle and spring housing are properly seated in the carb housing. If your choke control does not go all the way flush when ckoke is off this is a prime sign of this prob. Also it is easy to cant and bind the choke needle during installation. make sure it moves freely and no binding. It should not take much effort to move the knob in or out..

Honda shadow spirit vt750 motorcycle ,2005 model will not run at full throttle


I would check the Diaphragms of the carbs before I did anything else. A tiny pinprick in one of these can cause weird running problems. If that doesn't fix it then look at the ignition timing.

Try this site for all info on your bike and a very good forum.
