SOURCE: Valve specs for VT 500 honda shadow 1983

Hi,
Your valve clearances should be:
Intake .08-.12 mm (.003-.005 in)
Exhaust .12-.16 mm (.005-.006 in)
I usually start all gaps in the middle of given specs, then fine tune from there.
Hope this helps

SOURCE: 1986 honda shadow vt500c throttle hesitation.

If your bike has carbs and not fuel injection, ( difficult to remember back 23 years ago ), then remove the carb slides and move the clip on the jet needle down one notch. This will richen the low end mix and provide it sooner. You may need to go two notches but start with one notch. Also, sync the carbs such that the slides on both carbs move at the same exact instant when the throttle is slowly turned from idle speed < engine off. Clean the carbs when you get a chance.

Please rate this solution. Thanks Cindi!
