Honda VT 600 C Shadow headlight intermittent

Headlight only comes on when the neutral lamp is illuminated. Any other gear and no headlight. Maybe a ground issue? Any hints where to look?

Hi, John if your headlight is not working, only one beam works, keeps burning out, blinking, dim or surges from bright to dim to bright the first thing you need to check is the headlight bulb for damaged filaments then check your light circuit fuse, then check your head light bulb socket ground wire for a clean tight connection, that being said the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty ground or power supply wire to headlight bulb socket.
2. Worn down solder contacts or loose fit of the bulb base in the socket due to vibration.
3. Worn, chafed, or broken wires in the light circuit.
4. Corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets in wire connectors.
5. Faulty hi/lo beam switch.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Fuse is good but no continuity on both sides.
8. Faulty headlight relay.
9. Faulty wiring between battery positive and headlight bulb socket.
10. Weak charging alternator/generator/lighting coil.
11. Faulty voltage regulator/rectifier ground or overcharging.

SOURCE: headlights will not come on and it will not start.

sounds like you have no connection at a major junction block in your wiring that will be running to you ignition and kill switch.. Look for a green (corroded) or loose connection. Also first would clean all battery connection!

I want to adjust the headlight beam angle on my 2004 Shadow Sabre a little higher


Toward the bottom of the headlight there are two recessed phillips head screws. If you turn them clockwise it will raise the headlight. Counterclockwise will lower it.

93 shadow VLX 600, insert key, turn on ,all lights work except the headlight,(checked bulb-good), checked, starter , starter relay, battery, ignition, on switch, start switch, electrical connections, no...


You either have a broken/disconnected wire or you have a bad starter button. The starter button is a two position switch. Push it in half way and the headlight turns off. Push it in all the way and the solenoid engages the starter. The button is either dirty or broken.
