Question about 2005 Honda Shadow Slasher

Honda Shadow VLX 600 cellenoid

I just installed a new battery in my VLX and after reassembly it will not start. After checking fuses we attempted to start the bike by placing a jumper across the two terminals of the cellenoid and the bike will fire and start, but it will not start from the starter button. Is there anything else we could be missing? Does the starter work off of a bendix spring perhaps?

    yep checked that and all the safety seems to be something between the switch and the cellenoid. Is there a relay or something i'm missing?

I think the starter works off of a one-way clutch.
Go over your wiring once again. Make sure all the switches are in their correct positions.
Be sure the battery was properly charged before installation.

Where is the battery in a 2007 honda shadow VLX 600

On a 2007 VT750 you take off the bolt behind the passenger seat, lift off the seat and the battery is under the driver portion of the seat.
On a VLX 600 take off the right side cover, then remove the two screws holding the panel with the fuse block on it, the battery is behind that panel.
