Hydrolic failure is caused by mixing hydroscopic (DOT3) with petrolium based (DOT5) ater and oils don't mix. Blockage at return port won't allow fluid to return to master cylinder. Clutch will not engage if this were the case. The leak would be your best tell. Not knowing exact leak location it would be hard to say. inspection of master cylinder plunger seals couldn't hurt. If dissimular fluids have been mixed all rubber components have been contaminated and must be replaced

check fuel level, u may need to check the flow of petrol to it,,Also if that does not solve you may need to service the carb and check fuel filter,air filter etc...

These bikes are notorious for doing this. You must have a good battery to start these engines. I had a '94 VT1100 Shadow and it did the same thing. I bought a new battery and that solved the problem. Take you battery out and take it to an automotive parts house. They'll usually test the battery for you free of charge. Back when I had my Shadow, the only people that made the battery was Yuasa and it was that Yumacron battery. Expensive but it made the bike start well. Good Luck!

You need some carb work (or should I say fuel delivery system?) on this classic motorcycle. You might get away with using some fuel injector cleaner - I would try this first - to dlean the carb (fuel delivery system)
How is your gas? Fresh?
It can be frustrating to try to solve this type problem. Good luck. You can always take it to the Honda Shop ... it is getting colder now, ya know.
Anyway, good riding to you my friend. Thank you for posting at FixYa.com. Please vote
