SOURCE: 1984 Honda Shadow VT 700 Shift Problem

Based on the information you have provided I suspect a bent shift fork in your transmission. To fix it you will have to take the transmission cover off and get at that fork. Replacing the fork is probably easiest, the labor to get to it is the expensive part.

SOURCE: Front brake too stiff on 1984 Honda Shadow VT500C Shadow

You should have disc brakes??? They are not adjustable.
It is common for a caliper piston to freeze up or become corroded and bind up so it will not move freely.

SOURCE: i need to know how to wire up my signal lights for

All Honda turn signals wire the same. The wires are color coordinated and the same on all models. Sky blue wires are for the right side and orange wires are for the left side. The running lights the same colors (blue on right and orange on left) they just have a white stripe or a white band on the blue or orange wire. The most important thing to remember is the turn signals have to ground to the green wires in the harness not to the frame. If you do not ground the signals through the wiring harness you may have issues down the road. Every motorcycle I have purchased that had a windjammer fairing on it, had to be rewired. The turn signals had not been wired using the green ground wires and they did not work correctly. The turn signal should be flash brighter than the running light. If the running light is brighter than the turn signal the offending front signal is wired backwards.

1984 Honda VT 700 C Shadow backfires


Hi, Donald and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
2. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
3. Faulty main circuit breaker and or connections.
4. Faulty ignition coil and or connections.
5. Faulty spark plug, oil or gas fouled, wrong heat range or service type, wrong gap, loose in the cylinder head, broken electrode or insulator.
6. Faulty spark plug cables, leaking or broken, internal damage check for spark leakage in the dark.
7. Faulty ignition module, switch, CKP, MAP, CMP, sensor and or any connector in the ignition circuit could have corroded, loose, or broken pins/sockets
8. Burnt exhaust valve or air leak in the exhaust system.

There is a spring ( the right side of the engine under the cover), I think you have to take of the clutch, then shift in gears and you should see a broken spring.
