Not a good news, usually warn shifting fork and worn gear dogs.
The problem is, you have to completely disassembled the engine.

SOURCE: how to change sparkplugs on honda shadow motorcycle

VT1100 has two spark plugs per cylinder, the sparkplug caps are snap-ons so they're fairly easy to remove. You need a spark plug socket wrench to remove and replace the spark plugs.

SOURCE: problem with transmission? 1993 Honda Shadow VT600

A couple of things can come into play here. First, there is no such thing as a "short gear". That was B.S. just to sell the bike. The bike could have a bent shift fork that doesn't quite move the slider all the way over for a full gear engagement. The problem could also be a couple of broken teeth on the meshing of second gear. The most likely is a bent shift fork. It really doesn't matter much which problem it is because the repair procedure is the same. Did I mention that it is going to cost around $1500.00 to fix it?

The entire engine comes out of the frame and gets completely torn down. The top end comes off, the case covers come off, the clutch, shift shaft, kick starter, flywheel and electrics all come off. Then the case is split to gain access to the gears and shift drum. The gears and shift drum now get removed and now the bent fork can be replaced or any gears needing replacement. Replace the broken gear and also any gear the broken gear meshes with.

I should also mention another problem. Most dealers will not work on bikes over 10 years old and most not longer have the parts in inventory. Talk with a dealer's mechanics and ask if they do repairs outside of the shop or who they reccommend to do the repair. Sorry for having to give you the bad news. Who ever sold the bike to you, a novice rider getting his first bike, should be addressed for a refund, (which he is not likely to do), or at least 1/2 the repair cost, (which he is also unlikely to do).
Go to the site below where you can see a parts diagram for your specific bike. You will select the actual brand, year, model, etc., once you go to the site. Part numbers and prices are also shown. You can order parts from this site. In the event no price is shown on a particular part, the part is not in stock. www.babbittsonline.com/pages/parts/viewbybrandand/parts.aspx

SOURCE: need to tighten the timing chain

It has an automatic cam chain tensioner. If you are getting cam chain rattle, I would look at worn guides/chain.
