Question about 2002 Honda VT 750 CD Shadow A.C.E. Deluxe
Hi, Terry I would love to help you with your engine or chassis noise but I just loaned my brand new pair of listening ears to your local dealer's chief technician so he could take your bike for a test ride and give you his professional opinion and estimate about your noise and repair cost. If you are a little short on "DRACHMA" and a Dealership is not on your list of fun places to visit then perhaps the list below will help soothe your worried mind so you can make an informed decision.

Run the engine and look at the header tank , is there lots of air bubbles coming back out of the water if is then the head gasket may have split and that is down to either a can of Radweld or a strip down repair
If the radiator is not uniformly hot them I would go for that as your problem
Normal operation is that the engine starts the thermostat is closed , engine block heats up and opens water starts to circulate around the block
So to check that you need to fill the radiator with cold water run it for a few minutes check the bottom hose it should be cold
The stat opens and the bottom hose should get hot as the water from the block is pumped into the radiator for cooling.
The radiator should get hot all over and the cooling fan should kick in when the sensor hits the over limit stop.
If that does not happen then get someone to remove the stat altogether (It is only there to get the engine block warm quickly in cold regions )
In which case the bottom hose should go from cold to warm to hot

Replace petcock assembly and any gasket to tank. Not an item you want to play around with too much because of risk of fire.
