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 both.parts 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.
