Cleaning Carbs on the Honda Shadow
So my VT500 wasn't running quite right... It would make a weird popping
sound at higher RPMS steadily and would make random pops at lower RPMS...
There was a weird "sucking" sound coming from the front half of the engine
when you revved it, and it would randomly sputter and almost die as you
rode it, so we figured it was time for the good ole' seafoam treatment.
While we were at it, we decided to clean the carbs and then REALLY sea-foam
Although I REALLY didn't want to go into those carburetors, in hindsight Im
glad we did. Danny really knows his stuff mechanically, and for anyone
watching this, it honestly wasn't that difficult looking. Im no
wrench-turner and I still managed to clean the carb on my KLR before I sold
it. Basically, all you do is get a clean spot (newspaper, salt bags like we
used, etc) then take it all apart, and ideally remove EVERYTHING you can,
then boil it or use one of those buckets of chem-dip. If you're cheap like
me, the boiling water trick works very well especially for the cost (free).
Anyway, take a $3 can of carb cleaner and spray everything out very well,
and wipe out all the crap from the exposed areas with a rag, Q-tips, etc. I
used Kleenexes but a rag would be better. Also, using an old toothbrush can
really help out as well. Then take some compressed air and blow everything
out, do ALL that again, then put it back together.
Bike runs SO much better now, I wish we'de done this sooner.
Thanks Danny! :)

I've received many requests for more videos on my bobber so I decided to
upload this after considering how difficult it was for me and how I wished
people online can freakin' reply me how they did it because I had no
resources and had to figure it out on my own. This is 60+ gigs of videos
compiled over months. Heavily cut and edited to show the whole process in
the building of my bobber. I apologize for the choppy music in the
background. I truly hope this video helps!
LIVE HARD. RIDE HARDER! :)
This bike was completed in 2010.

Honda VT 750 SHADOW
Uniquement disponible en coloris noir graphite, la Honda VT 750 C2B Shadow
récupère les standards actuels du custom comme par exemple de belles
jantes à rayons de 17 pouces de diamètre à l'avant et de 15 pouces à
l'arrière, cette dernière accueillant un pneumatique de 160 mm de large !
La console d'instrumentation placée sur le réservoir et des caches
satinés pour les tubes de la fourche renforce son aspect muscle-bike ou le
chrome n'a guère droit de citer. Honda se cherche toujours avec sa Shadow
dont on voit une nouvelle mouture chaque année. Alors enfin le bon choix ?
