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..

Having a cut out problem on my honda vt750 going up hills and at haft trottle


Hi, James please disregard the carburetor parts I hope your Holley pump has the same specs as OEM otherwise that could be an issue and the usual suspects are:
1. Spark plugs in bad condition or partially fouled.
2. Spark plug cables in bad condition and leaking.
3. Spark plug gap too close or too wide.
4. Faulty ignition coil, module, and or sensor.
5. Battery nearly discharged.
6. 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.
7. Intake air leak.
8. Water, dirt, or rust in the fuel system, carburetor and/or filter.
9. Fuel tank vent system plugged or carburetor vent line closed off.
10. Carburetor controls misadjusted.
11. Damaged carburetor.
12. Loose, dirty, or corroded ignition module connector at crankcase.
13. Faulty MAP, CKP, O2, and/or CMP sensors.
14. Incorrect valve timing.
15. Weak or broken valve springs.

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.

2007 honda shadow aero vt750 will not stay running after the choke is pushed in


You probably have some gelled gas in the carbs. Take off the fuel line going into the carbs and spray some carb cleaner directly into the bowls. This may take care of a minor clog. If this does not work , you will have to take the carbs off and clean the slow jets and slow circuit passageways before the bike will idle normally again.

My 2004 Honda shadow aero vt750 is running poorly. It only idles with the choke nearly fully engaged. I have added carb cleaner and changed the plugs. What else should I do?


has the bike been sitting for a time ..sounds like the carbs need pulled and cleaned..you could try draining the fuel out at the float bowls there should be drain screws at the bottom there could be dirt or water in them sometimes this will help without pulling them ..good luck
