Book Excerpt: 1985-2007 Honda VT1100 Shadow Repair Manual

FUEL AND EXHAUST SYSTEMS

IDLE FUEL/AIR MIXTURE | ADJUSTMENT
  1. Because of emissions regulations of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the regulatory bodies of some state governments as well, the idle fuel/air mixture is a critical adjustment.

    In order to comply with these regulations, each carburetor has a sealing plug in the pilot screw hole to prevent tampering. These plugs should only be removed during a complete carburetor overhaul, after which the screws must be returned to their original settings.

  2. If you replaced the pilot screws during a carburetor overhaul, adjust the idle fuel/air mixture as follows. Make sure that the carburetors are synchronized (see Chapter 1) before proceeding.
  3. Remove each pilot screw plug, if necessary (see Steps 9 and 10 in Section 13).
  4. Turn each pilot screw clockwise until it seats lightly, and then back it out to the initial opening listed in this Chapter's Specifications.
  5. Caution: Do NOT overtighten the pilot screw; overtightening it will damage it.

  6. Start the engine and warm itup to its normal operating temperature.

ELECTRICAL SYSTEM
SIDESTAND SWITCH | CHECK AND REPLACEMENT
Note: This procedure applies to VT1100C2, VT1100T and 1997-on VT1100C models.

CHECK

  1. Remove the left side cover (see Chapter 8), the battery (see Section 3) and the battery holder (see illustration 17.1).
  2. The wires in the sidestand switch circuit are green/white, yellow/black and green. The electrical connector is a red three-pin connector (see illustration). Unplug the connector.
  3. Connect the leads of an ohmmeter to the terminals for the indicated wire colors.
  4. With the sidestand in the down position, there should be continuity between the terminals for the yellow/black and green wires.
  5. With the sidestand in the up position, there should be continuity between the terminals for the green/white and green wires.
  6. If the sidestand switch fails either of these tests, replace it.
  7. REPLACEMENT

  8. Disconnect the electrical connector for the sidestand switch, if you haven't already done so (see Steps 1 and 2).
  9. Remove the sidestand switch bolt and remove the switch.

VT1100C2
I have used Haynes manuals for years as a master certified mechanic, and I knew what I would see getting this manual. Motorcycle manuals are somewhat hard to come by in this electronic age, but it was exactly what I wanted. I do, as a professional, prefer the way Chiltons are set up, but they are very cost prohibitive and with much more information to each book than I needed for my single vehicle, all in all easy to follow and read with the proper information. For a non-professional, this is about the most understandable format available.
