Hello ALL!

I am new to Honda Shadow.net. I am the third owner of a 1995 VT1000C that currently has a salvage title. Great bike, been going through it for last 6 weeks making all necessary tweeks. Have a manual. Looking forward to a few fixes the previous owner neglected, need to rejet the carbs for the after market pipes but very excite to get started. I joined this to get some advice on an overheating issue. I changed coolant and all oils but has still overheated. Now I'm not sure if it's overheating because of radiator issues/fan faulty switch, radiator cap pressure issues or if it's because the enigine is running lean because the dual carbs haven't been rejetted. I rode 250 miles the day I picked it up, but 3 days later it overheated on a 12 mile ride from work.

Thanks in advance!

Gina

Where'd you get the fender box & backrest combo? I'm looking to add something like that on mine.

Nice looking bike, I would Guess you should fix the jets first since it needs it any way and see if the issue persists.

Thanks all for the encouragement!! I can tell many hours were put into this baby, but I'll keep everyone posted if I can isolate the issue and correct it.
