I've been playing with my wife's 500 Shadow ...I've checked the float levels reset air fuel mixture & change the spark plug to .040 from the .035 runs really good she even noticed the difference.  When they run for a while restarting is an issue. I'm trying to find a way to spin the engine over faster.
