2005 Honda Shadow 750DC Neutral light does not come on when the key is turned on. It will not start, no noise, nothing. Sometimes it works, sometimes it don't! I'm thinking it's a bad side stand switch?!?!

It is more likely to be the neutral gear switch as it affects the neutral light. The side stand switch stops the starter solenoid, To prove it out, short the two wires of the side stand switch, the kill switch is also in the equation.

SOURCE: Honda Shadow 600 c won't start in gear after battery change

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.

SOURCE: 1998 Honda Goldwing will not start nothing.

Sort of sounds like a Twilight Zone kind of problem doesn't it. I would have the battery checked for an internal dead short. This is something that happens on odd occasions and can happen even to a new battery. Yea, the little lights will work ( they do not draw much juice ), but the starter motor draws a lot of juice and a shorted battery just ain't got it. Also check the wiring harness connections. One loose connection can cause bunches of trouble.

2005 Honda VT 750 Shadow Aero will not turn over


Hi, James before testing any electrical component in the Starting System it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage, the battery is faulty and must be replaced. AGM type batteries fall into this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter.
4. Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty.
5. FOB battery low or dead.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand, clutch, neutral safety switch.
9. Security alarm needs a reset.
10. Starter relay, solenoid, starter have failed or circuit wiring faulty.
11. Starter armature or field coils have failed.
12. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
13. The electric starter is working but starter clutch has failed.
14. Check for engine trouble codes.

I have a 2001 Honda shadow spirit vt750dc . It seems to loose power after 10 minutes of riding. I replaced battery. Rectifier. And stator. All new. Still having the same problem. Please help.


I have a 2001 Honda Shadow Spirit VT 750DC. When trying to start it, after winter storage. I noticed gas was pouring out of the end of my Carburetor, Air Vent Tube "No. 6" At the other end is connected to a "T" , that goes into the top of the Carbs. I looked in the service manual that says because I do not have a California Emission , to connect it to the carb. Humm, I said to self. But Where? To What Carb? I checked the photos and Diagram shows no connection, HELP!!!
