Battery honda shadow

could it be possible that the new battery is just dead from not being charged/sitting unused in a store somewhere? the alternator is responsible for charging the battery and providing power for the bike so check that. is it possible you blew a fuse or something on when you tried to jump the bike? im not really a pro those are just some thoughts. interesting problem.

I have a 94 honda shadow 1100 with a whole new charging system, but when I went to go to start it a few days ago, the batterie was dead. I jump started it and ran a volt meter test while it was running and...

You have a Bad Starter, usually starter brushes. Easy to fix, take off the starter (2 screws + 1 screw of a +wire), take it out, unscrew 3 bolts, gently take it apart, you have 2 or 4 brushes, check also rotor strips, if they are damage.

Battery dead on 2004 Honda had to be jumped now radio crashed

Any time battery is disconnected the radio has to have a code reentered. This is a theft prevention issue. You should have gotten the code if you bought the car new, if not call the dealer and he can provide it.

Re key less entry have no idea but could be same issue.
