SOURCE: bike keeps cutting out

sounds like either your fuel vent on the tank is clogged ( the rubber hose coming off the top of the fuel cap) or #2 your spark plugs are fouling out which is probally the most common thing with a 2 cycle engine.

SOURCE: battery not holding a charge,

Check the charging rate of your bike, see if its system is charging, if it does charge thn theres somewhere the battery is getting drained out.
In order to see if tht is happenning, switch off everything and thn remove one battery wire on the battery, after doing so try to fix it back and notice if theres any sparks when it comes to the contact of the battery terminal , if so thn theres a drain somewhere in the electricals and wiring.

Good luck.

1100 honda shadow runs on kickstand dies when straight up ready to ride

If the problem occurs only when the side stand is folded up then your problem is that the switch down there is being fouled.
Best thing to do is remove any dirty buildup from the switch area. This is usually worse on a chain driven bike, but I think yours is shaft drive.
Otherwise replace the switch or hardwire bypass it so you don't have to use it.

I ride a 1986 shadow 500 with 32000 miles. recently it started acting up. the rear cylinder cuts out as i ride and it can last for several miles before it picks back up. At the same time, the RpM display...

You need to check for spark when the back cylinder is not firing to see if that is the problem...from there it will be easier to troubleshoot...also check for vacuum leaks.

I just bought a 1998 Honda Shadow 1100. The

I doubt the bike has 100k on it, thats alot of riding! If it runs and looks good just figure it is a typo and ride it. As far as the oil filter that bike uses a spin on filter, it is painted black, screws on the front of the engine just above the oil pan just to the right of center.

96 Shadow. 1 cyl cuts out after heating up. Then engine runs on 1 cylinder.

After heating up.. I would check for spark on that cylinder when it is warm... could be a coil going bad.
Just a thought...

I would like to know how to lower my honda shadow aero 1100

When lowering bikes, we usually lessen or cut the shock absorbers (front and back).

Accessory places have lowering blocks, they are just a small metal accessory that move the bottom of the rear shocks to the rear and down, I think you get 1.5 inches from them. Then you need to cut or get shorter springs in the front, either will probably make the ride stiffer in the front.
