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.

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.

My honda shadow 600 dose not get any spark to the plugs


If its all the plugs than check the wires, coils, and all the way back to the battery. Make sure the battery is all the way charged up. Also some of those ignition coponents can only only be checked by an approved honda service center and most be replaced with new ones when found to be bad.

Yzf 600r Wont hold a charge? does it have something to do with the magneto or generator?I bought the bike back from a friend and he wrecked it and put a new generator cover on so he changed everything over...


It's not charging, or the battery won't hold a charge? Get a multimeter and test the generator with the bike running, should be 13.5-14.5 volts. If you get this, you need a battery, if not need to find the bad component in the charging system.
