The kickstand switch is either bad or bent out of position. See if you can activate the switch manually. Does the bike run now? If so, the switch is bent out of position. If it still won't run, jumper the wires together until you can replace the switch.

Your kickstand switch is either broken or out of position. The bike kills the engine as a safety feature if it thinks the sidestand is down and the bike is put in gear while the engine is running.

SOURCE: my 02 honda shadow spirit 1100 dies after about

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand, it would appear that the charging circuitry has failed.  Initially, check the rectifier/regulator combo and its connectors/terminals.  The regulator is located behind and below the coolant reservoir. Check for any loose, burned or corroded terminals:

  • 3 yellow wires from stator;
  • green wire to ground; and
  • red/white wire from regulator to starter relay (to battery - charging line).
The voltage on the the red/white wire or the battery + terminal should rise from 12 + to 14+ as the engine RPM is increased.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

2001 Honda Shadow 1100, I put the kickstand down while on slight grade, front brake on,clutch pulled on and now it will not start. riddle me this.


You may be low on fuel, and none is reaching the fuel valve, but a more likely answer is that the bike may not be properly registering that it's in neutral.
There's a safety that kills the engine if it's in gear and the side stand is down.
Triple check the neutral (put it in gear and back to neutral).
Check the side stand and clutch safety switches.

Engine shuts off when put in gear, could by kickstand switch, but could the clutch need bleeding?


Hi
Unlikely that the clutch needs bleeding unless she lurches forward when she dies
It will be side-stand, clutch or neutral lockout switches or the relay

1998 VT 1100 C Shadow Spirit: brand new battery;died after a few hours of ridein...


Could be, replace or have it tested. My old bike a 1998 VT1100CT had a problem with the starter being weak, like the battery was dying. Turned out to be the battery ground wire bolt, going to the back of the starter. It just had a little rust on it, and the bolt broke when I went to remove it. But once replaced the bike starts great, we replaced the battery, took apart the starter tested everything. All for a slightly rusted bolt not making a good ground... Check your Regulator, and any corrosion around the connections!
