There are two bolts in the back of the seat it looks like you must first remove the sissy bar from the back of the bike. I just bought a 84 Shadow VT-500 and there was no sissy bar when I purchased so u could see the two screw's right above the rear light. Once the screws are out the seat comes of very easily.

I have an 83 Honda 500 shadow that will not turn off. I disconnected the ignition switch with the same results. The only way to turn off the electrical system is to disconnect the battery.

Check your starter solenoid . The main fuse is part of the starter solenoid and power goes directly from the battery to the solenoid. If there is a short from the main fuse wire to the solenoid that may be powering the bike . Next time you want to turn off the bike try unplugging the four prong plug to the solenoid . Look for the short there a new solenoid would run about $100 from Honda. The problem will either be a melted solenoid or a melted plug or both.

1984 VT 500 C Shadow: 1983 honda shadow -starts and runs, seems to miss ...

The fuel filter is in the tank on the petcock and is self cleaning. I suspect you have bad spark plug caps on your bike the cap is part of the wire. If you remove the wire and take a reading with an ohm meter, the cap should read 5000 ohms . Anything above or below and you should replace the cap. This is probably causing the slight miss.
