    Hello everyone, new guy here. I've been lurking these forums for a few months now trying to gather information about swapping the dual carbs out for a single due to issues I've had with mine. After finding little information and what seems to be a bit of interest I thought I'd made a post...

    Hi everyone! I’m working on the two carbs from my 1985 Honda Shadow vt500c. This is the second time I’m attempting this, as my first time was unsuccessful. I have a few questions. When installing a new (same size, 38) pilot jet, you lightly butt it all the way in, and then bring it 2 1/4...

    I rebuilt my carburetor and put it back together, noticed I had a pretty severe air leak so I check it out and it’s because one of my intake hoses was not fully connected to the air box, basically that’s the problem, it seems as if the hose just needs another half inch of room to reach but I’ve...

    So I have my dual carb back in my 93 VLX 600 but there’s one stupid little hose I’m not sure where it goes, it’s very skinny and there’s an almost identical one on the other side of the carb I took a picture of while disassembling, but forgot to take a pic of this side, I vaguely remember...

    So I just ripped my dual carb out of my 93 VLX 600 and I’m a little worried if I’ll even be able to get it back it in but before that I’m gonna take it apart and rebuild it. It’s my first time doing this on any bike or any carburetor ever so I’m pretty green unfortunately, but I’m asking to see...

    Hello, I recently picked up a non running Honda shadow in trade for an engine stand. I cleaned the carbs and the bowl is getting fuel. So I would assume it would start but it only starts when I put gas in the intake port.

    Hi everyone. This is my first post here, and it will definitely be a doozy. I have a 98' ACE 750 that I bought with basket case carbs. Not a problem for me, as I am very familiar with Honda carbs (I got very familiar with them from my V65 Magna.) Well, of course I had no problems cleaning and...

    Folks, I can use some help here. My 2007 sat in garage for more than 2 years and when I started to take it out and start, it just wont. So took the carb out, cleaned and filled the tank with fresh gas. Tried to start the bike and it will just crank and wont start. While troubleshooting, I...

    I recently acquired a 2007 Spirit VT750DC, and want to upgrade the exhaust. My dad (Previous owner) told me I'd have to rejet the carb to install pipes, which I don't mind doing but I'm curious as to if I actually have to, and if I do (or don't and it's just recommended) as to what jet kit I...

    I’m looking to replace the accelerator pump on my 2003 Honda Shadow VLX 600 if you are familiar with the part it’s also referred to as the “Diaphragm Pump.” My question is, are there any differences in the Carburetors on the VLX 600 and the 750 as far as the actual accelerator pump? I have a...

    Hey all, new guy here. I just bought a 2007 Honda shadow sabre 1100 with about 38000 miles a couple days ago. The throttle response is great and I have not noticed any hiccups at any speeds or throttle positions, but when I decelerate the exhaust pops and bubbles quite a bit. The exhaust is...

    I have an 83 shadow 500 and I recently noticed a vacuum leak on the carb. On the right side of the bike on the carb there is a nipple where a vacuum line would go, there is air coming out of it when I put my finger over it the idle smooths out now I just need to know where that connects to
