Question about 1984 Honda VT 500 C Shadow
Posted by Anonymous on
SOURCE: spark plug gap
Don't change the setting on the plug. The 400's are happiest when you just plug in new ones and ride. They like NGKs the best. There are two types for the 400. One runs hotter. This choice will depend on which country you live in and what the ambient temperatures are.

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

Hi and welcome to FixYa,
To my understanding, sparkplug gap should be 0.8 ~ 0.9 mm (0.03 ~ 0.04 in).
Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.
