SOURCE: i have a 1985 honda shadow vt500c i am not getting

Why don't you switch the plugs and try. It might be a faulty(shorted) plug which is not giving a spark despite change of coils..............sodeep

Check that the choke cable is functioning properly so chock is not staying slightly on or sticking choke would cause this also.

Too much backpressure from exhaust will also make it run rich.

you did not clean them properly, you have to drain out the gas in the carbs and clean the air channels with thin wire, check the 2 diaphragms

I read a post of yours about a bike not running good... and it said in your answer a place to get a manual... i have a 1983 honda gl1100 interstate.... i just bought bike... don't know much but know...


Getting your Goldwing running good is probably as simple as putting on 4 new NGK brand spark plug caps (about $5) and 4 brand new spark plugs. The resisters burn out in the plug caps and make the motor sound like it needs a carburetor cleaning and a full engine rebuild. The spark plug caps simply unscrew off of the end of the wires and the new ones screw on. For good free information about your Goldwing and hard to find parts you can go to : Randaaks.com

If the plugs are fuel fouled then you should look at the carbs.sounds like running ritch. If carbs are OK then Check spark if it is orange it is week(should be whiteish blue). If the coils are producing spark but week the bike will run but eventualy foul the plugs because it can't burn all the fuel.
