Question about 1995 Honda VT 1100 C Shadow Spirit

95 honda shadow 1100 wont crank

My 95 Honda shadow 1100 wont crank over after a simple change of handlebars. I was very careful with wiring during parts swap. Bike is in top shape, low mileage and not weathered. I checked everything including starter switch and other safety controls and they all seem good. Engine will crank by jumping solenoid, but not with starter button. Battery good, everything else works and the headlight dims for starting, like normal but engine wont crank over. Main fuse is good, is there another fuse that might be the problem? What am I missing?

There is one more fuse near the battery, check the starter switch on the handle bar if you have 12V coming in to the switch.

SOURCE: my honda vt1100 c2 starting problem

If you can hear the starter run, but no motor turning, the starter clutch is going bad. It is what allows the motor to turn over with the starter, and it idles while the bike is running.

SOURCE: I have a 2000 Honda Shadow 750 ACE. While riding

Take the starter button off and put a 12 volt tester on one of the 4 leads that are wired into the button. Test each- If you find a hot line, take a small piece of wire and jump the current over to the other parrallel button. I worked on my bike for two weeks before I discovered this problem. Another problem was that the headlight would not come on. The starter would not crank at all. I took a screw driver and raised the brass leads on the switch so they would make contact and put the switch back together, and it worked. Good luck.

Hi, sounds like you are getting insuficiant power getting to the starter, assuming you have checked the engine turns over freely and is not seized, the switch circuit you have proved is working (as the clicking noise at the solenoide indicates this) as the solenoide switches the battery power to the starter motor, i ask myself if either the battery is suffiantly charged, or the leads from the battery to the solenoide/starter motor and earth leads are making good contact,
At the solenoide join together the both leads bypassing the solenoide using a pair of insulated pliers and the engine should turn over if the battery contains 12-14 volts, this can be done either with the ignition switch in the on/off position when ignition is off the engine will turn but will not start

Can I put 1 inch handlebars on 86 Honda shadow LVT 1100? They are a pain or's and they don't taper down to 7/8 of an inch at the end


Hi, Natalie if your original bars are 7/8" then get 7/8" apes if you want to go with 1" bars call the manufacturer for details for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry.
