New rider somewhat...

Hello ladys and guys. my name is Jay.
I have been riding for awhile now, but I've only road a honda cbr 929rr.. I had the bike since 2001 I loved it. And it was far from stock, and last year I was out with my daught one weekend and someone stoll my bike. So I haven't been on a bike for awhile now .
My dad gave me his 1983 honda shadow vt750. So I am redoing it and all.. Right now I am rebuilding the carbs on it and I have a ? for it... I tuke the choke springs out and all but the little needle for the choke won't come out and I don't know why.. Any help would be great and if someone has a pic of what the needle for the choke looks like would be great...

Welcome to HSN.

Shadow going to be a little differernt from 929RR.

I, myself , cant help with carb.
ALthough I would recoemend finding a factory manaul, or maybe a Clymers. Actaully I think I benifit from having that were stcu

On my Suzuki, I had some carb parts that were stuck and not comming loose. Tried some penitarating oil, that was no help. Then tried some Seafoam DeepCreep, let it sit for a few minutes and they came out like there never was a problem.
(but that stuff aint cheap.)

If there is any reason for lack of responce here, its not anything you said,... well other than "1983". Most guys on here have more recent bike.
And this is the "Introduction" section and you are asking a tgechnical question.

Get more responce to technical question in technical section and have model stated in title.


86 VT500C since 2004.
Have had Suzuki GSs for 20+ years
