Seat is not level

I inherited the bike from my in-laws. The seat is not perfectly level- tilts a little bit to the left, and my back feels it. Any suggestions/can it be leveled?

How to remove the seat of a honda shadow vt600c


There are two screws located beneath the seat on the left and right side of the bike. Look at the space in between the passenger's seat and the saddle with a light. You will need an allen wrench with a little bit of length.

It sounds like you need a new needle in the carb. The fuel level is regulated by the float which opens and closes the needle in it's seat. If the needle is worn or damaged, it will not completely close. If you just inherited the bike, I would believe that the bike has been sitting up for a while. I'd have a competent mechanic remove the carb and go through it. Clean it out on the inside and put a new needle valve in it. This job is a bit too complicated for me to recommend that an amateur can do it. If you wish to try, I'd purchase a service manual. It's too much for me to type here on this forum. Sorry. Good news is the needle valve only costs about $25.

What is the best tilt for the saddle?


SMP saddles are tricky to see the amount of tilt you have. Try this:

Place a level surface like a clipboard across the saddle tip to rear. On top of that place a small level, one with a bubble is fine. The seat should be positioned so that it is level or slightly (1 degree) nose down. This is your starting position.

from this position you can determine front and back. You should be sitting on the saddle so when riding you don't feel like you are sliding forward or backward. The exact tilt is a personal preference. but more than 3 degrees up or down and it will be very difficult to stay in position. If you can't get the saddle comfortable, you should consider having your bike Professionally Fit.

My side by side fridge door does not close by itself when released


It is likely that your fridge is tilted left or right, and possibly forward at the same time. Most refrigerator doors will self-close if the fridge is slightly tilted both back and to the handle. The fridge is raised or lowered by adjusting the front feet or rollers.

The problem you'll encounter with a side-by-side fridge is that if you adjust for the right-hand door to self-close, there's a good chance that the left-hand door will want to stay or fully open; if you don't check it while making the adjustments. It can take a little extra time to make sure the adjustments make the front both perfectly level left to right, AND slightly higher in the front than the back.

Please rate this reply if you found it helpful - good luck!

How do you adjust the seat


Hi there Vriddick

To adjust the seat for height, there is a locking bolt on the seat post, below the seat. Loosen this and the seat should drop down the hole. Lift it up to your specified height and tighten up the bolt. You can also use this method to adjust the direction of the seat in relation to the handlebars, left or right.

If you need the seat adjusted for its angle. Under the seat itself are two bolts clamping two large circular bits of metal, undo these bolts and tilt the seat downwards or upwards, retighten when you have it just right.

sounds like the float level height is set a little low. you might have accidently readjusted the setting. just raise the float level height a little bit and you should be okay.

Bike shuts off after downshifting to 1st or 2nd.


The bike wont start for a little bit ????????????
What do you mean.Either it starts or it doesn't.
First of all check the fuel pump.Place the kill switch to "off" position and turn on the key.Put your left hand on the pump (it is under the seat and close to the fuel tank I think.Looks like a drum with 2 pipes on one side and wire on the other end) and then press the kill switch to "on" position.The pump should start pumping for a few sec and then it will stop.
What exactly is a "spudder" that you heard from the exhaust? Like an explosion with a flame (backfire)?
When you crank the engine does it feel like having combustion or it turns like there are no pistons inside?

for me, the best saddle position for long distance is when it's facing downwards a little bit, so that you can move your legs freely.
