Where can I locate the stator and regulator in a Honda shadow 750

I will tell you something,
First you need to check all electricity connection for bad connection.
After if generator not working normal on the poles of the battery volts will permanently change need to change stator.
If you have a weak battery charge or over-charge then you can change regulator rectifier. Check all parts and after change damaged parts.

I have a 1995 honda shadow 600 vt motorcycle and my battery keeps dying out

Start the bike and check the voltage on the battery, it should be from 13,5 to 14,5V, if not, you have a bad stator or rectifier.

My honda shadow is not charging. I think that it is the stater. How hard is that to replace?

Uf, first check connector for three wires coming from top left side engine cover. Connector can get bad and no electric is passing through. Start the bike and measure between + and - on battery. If you have over 13,5V/DC your fine. If you have a jumping DC (from 16- 19V/Dc) rectifier is bad, Stop engine, Disconnect the three stator wires connector and Measure between the three yellow wires on Ohms if they are connected, if yes, Stator is o.k.
Usually Stator is last one to go bad.

Hi I have a 2001 Honda shadow ACE motorbike. There are 3 yellow wires going from the alternator to the voltage regulator through a 3 pronged plug. They have become very hot and fried themselves at...

3) there may be damage that has caused this
2)doesnt matter which yellow wire
1)maybe fried regulator or stator coils or aged insulation which has allowed a short between windings

The three wires are the 3 poles of the stator windings,

Fix the wires and plug first(electronics shops will have suitable 3 or 4 pin plugs to use)
get a multi meter and check resistance, any pair should have same resistance, non should short to ground.
with the bike running they will produce AC current (maybe 50-60vAC)again any pair.
If you are getting good AC voltace, then put the meter across the battery 12vDC engine stopped should rise to 14 vDC (about) when engine revved to 3000rpm

No AC -new stator
No DC-new regulator
Note voltages are estimates, many bikes run very similar charging systems

How to check stater on 1992 honda shadow

Locate the wire harness coming out of the stator on the left crank case cover of the motor and follow it to the plug with three yellow wires. This is the stator plug. You should have continuity between any combination of the three yellow wires, but no continuity between any of the yellow wires and ground. If the stator yellow wires are grounding you will have to replace the stator. To replace the stator remove the left crank case cover and unbolt the stator from the inside of the cover. Do not forget to purchase a new left cover gasket with the new stator or you will just delay your riding.

2000 shadow. brand new battery but it won't stay charged. bike starts and runs well otherwise. 600 cc shadow

Locate the wires coming out of the motor. There is a plug with three yellow wires, check the three yellow wires coming out of the motor for continuity. Any combination of the three yellow wires should have continuity. But there should be NO continuity between any of the three wires and ground. If any of the yellow wires are grounded you have a bad stator. If the stator checks good you probably have a bad voltage regulator/rectifier.
