    Hey y'all. Looks like most of the vt500c carburetor diaphragms are coming from China and I don't want to wait a month. Has anyone measured or used a 600cc diaphragm on a 500cc ?

    My 2005 Honda VT600CD with 19,000 original miles has been mis-behaving. Tried to take her for a ride for the 1st time in ~15 months (shame on me!) and it won't keep running.

    I have a 2008 Shadow Spirit that had been sitting for 10 years before I got it. A year or so back, I cleaned the carburetor, replaced the petcock, and got it running and rode it last year with no problems. In the last month, I have rebuilt the carburetor (at the suggestion of the Honda shop)...

    So I got my 2000 Shadow 750 running and the bike just feels off, theres some slight back pressure when throttle and there's this air spitting out from the left side of the carburetor, I found where the air is coming from and after some research I think there is supposed to be a hose connecting...
