    Currently I've got 3/8 fuel lines from tank to pump, and pump to brass T. Then it turns into a 1/4 sized fuel line. I've had some problems with what feels like fuel delivery when I open up full throttle. I'm wondering if switching the line from pump to brass T to a 1/4 instead of 3/8 would...

    So I've been working on my 02 shadow 1100 for a few years. Everything is all set to be road ready. All but one issue. Fuel delivery. Today I pulled the carbs and cleaned them again only to notice there still isn't fuel coming to the carbs. I removed the fuel pump and gravity fed the fuel into...

    I have a 1999 Honda Shadow Spirit 1100 The other day I had just left home to go to work and my bike died all of a sudden down the street. After about 10 minutes it started and ran long enough on choke to get it back home. First thought was the carbs. Wrong. After work it started up and ran...

    S the previous owner installed a aftermarket universal fuel pump. Not sure if it was because they boared the engine out or if they didn't want to pay for the oem stock pump. But does anyone know what psi the fuel should be at for this bike? It is a 2007 shadow spirit 1100c Originally, but like I...

    Hello all new to the forum, I bought a 2000 Shadow Spirit VT1100C last year on love it. I got it from a Honda dealership and they went through it and rebuilt the carb. My question is I am getting about 60 miles before I have to go the reserve. I feel I should be getting a little more mileage...

    Hey guys, I hope you all are well. I have seen many threads on HOW to replace the fuel filter, but have been unable to find any on what actual filter model to use. I currently ride a 2003 Honda Shadow Ace 750cc. At times when accelerating, I find that my throttle briefly "skips a beat" as...

    I just purchased a 1998 honda shadow 1100 with 25k on it about a week ago. The bike ran excellent the whole time until today, I started it up this morning to go for a ride and made it about 2 miles down the road when it stalled out rolling up to a red light. The bike started back up immediately...

    Just picked up a 1985 Honda 700 that was running when I got it but you had to manually pulsate the fuel pump to be able to rev it up. I also believe it needs a starter solenoid because the push button doesent work but starter works fine when you jump the relay. I let the bike sit outside for 4...

This bike has a little over 60,000 miles on it (I put 6,000 on it last year). Lately when I ride, she starts and runs just fine, maybe...
