Question about 2001 Honda VT 750 CD Shadow A.C.E. Deluxe

2 Answers

Honda 2001 Shadow ACE, it has been sitting for several months, usually, you just have to let it idle for a while (20-30 minutes )and then it runs fine, however this time, it would not rev past idle without the choke being on after idling for much longer than usual. took out the fuel filter and it seems alright, we used compressed air to blow through it and it (air) had no problems passing through it but I am getting a replacement in the AM nonetheless to see if this solves the issue. I put carb cleaner additive in the fuel and at first it seemed to be able to rev past idle a little bit (could twist the throttle maybe a millimeter without it stalling) , but it quickly degraded to a putt putt again. I have been told by a buddy that it may be the coils, and another told me to take out the carbs and clean them, but I am waiting to see if the new fuel filter works before pursuing these options. I see in the forum it says another option is to replace the plug wires so am thinking of trying that too. I am broke as a joke and cant afford a costly repair, I need to fix this myself as cheaply as possible and need some solid guidance as to how to do this the right way. I have been told as long as it is starting and idling it cant be anything serious and should be a simple fix.HELP!!!!!

Pull the carb and soak for about 30 minutes then spray down with carb cleaner.

The shadows have an issue with the gunk getting built up in the carbs. I would take them off get a carb cleaning product and spray the living heck out of it making sure you get into all the ports and everything. This seems just like a carb issue and nothing else

1997 Shadow ACE VT1100C2 stops on me periodically


Best way to get one of those apart is to cut the wires on each side and replace the plug.
Try replacing the fuel filter too.
Coils will do stuff like that too.
