Default SHadow VT700C 1986

Hi,

I just bought a VT700C. Now its time to fix the previous owners mistakes and problems.

First problem being the exhaust. He took the baffles out and the also added shoddy looking heat shields that run the length of the bike. I'm not sure where to find baffles for this bike.

Second is where is a good source for a manual to take this bike apart?

Third is the fuel pump stopped working on the bike. So his "fix" was to place a car fuel pump and a pressure regulator in the bike. I'd rather find a place to get the right fuel pump but if I can't how do I go about tuning the carb down to less fuel. Its fouling the plugs when idling.

I don't think baffles are available by themselves, I removed mine and made my own, and the originals were spot-welded in.

Can't help with the manual. Previous owner of my 84 had a shop manual. Dealer?

I see used fuel pumps on e-bay constantly. There always seems to be someone parting out an early VT700. I went the new route with mine, however. If you have a local Honda bike dealer they should be able to help, although mine was not cheap. I paid about $140 4 or 5 years ago. Hope this helps.
