Sounds to me like your running too rich, IE - theres too much fuel being burned as opposed to air. I'd check and make sure your airfilter isnt dirty, anything that restricts airflow can cause this. Dont leave the enricher on once the bikes started up...make sure you have the right plugs in there

SOURCE: 1984 Honda Shadow VT 700 Shift Problem

Based on the information you have provided I suspect a bent shift fork in your transmission. To fix it you will have to take the transmission cover off and get at that fork. Replacing the fork is probably easiest, the labor to get to it is the expensive part.

1988 vt1100 is backfiring and won't run, how come?


You have to clean the carbs and sync them. Before you take them off, drain the fuel from carbs bowl.
If the carbs do not have the same amount of air and fuel, then you have back firing and popping, and one of the cylinders will over heat, that is not good for the engine . If you changed the pipes to a custom ones, then just sync the carbs, if you can not sync them, then you have to change the 2 jets (slow and main) in the carbs.

Backfiring is caused by either the firing order being incorrect or the engine timing is incorrect. generally backfiring through the carburetor is caused by incorrect firing order. confirm the distributor is inserted properly and double check firing order beginning with cylinder number 1.

Backfiring and trouble starting


If you change the exhaust pipes, you have to sync the carbs (if you cant sync them, you have to change the carb jets), usually it is backfiring because the carbs are not in balance.

Just bought a 1994 Shadow 1100.Bike was sitting for a while Got it running but wont idle,and Back fires .Would this be a carb.problem or something else?


Yes, it is a carb problem. The carbs need to be thoroughly cleaned. It won't idle because the slow speed circuit is gummed up. The back fire is a situation where one carb is driving another. The best carb is driving the engine and the worst carb is running rich. This imbalance causes the backfire.

1983 vt 500 honda shadow. Replaced both head's. Starts fine has good power. Yet it pop's or back fires some times after giving it progressive fuel. What do you think. Thank you!


Three things that can cause popping or backfiring. 1)You may have cracked, leaking,or broken intake manifolds or bad o-rings on the manifolds. 2)Leaking exhaust gaskets in the head or between the head pipe and muffler. 3)Bad spark plug caps and partially fouled plugs. Check it out.
