1986 honda shadow vt1100. Whenever I hook up the battery the starter starts to crank, and continues to crank until battery is disconnected or dies.


solenoid or relay stuck, if water has managed to get in over the 2 years or its corroded up the connections will connect, when the power went in the first time it moved but is unable to go back into the original off position.

I have a 1995 honda shadow 600 vt motorcycle and my battery keeps dying out


Start the bike and check the voltage on the battery, it should be from 13,5 to 14,5V, if not, you have a bad stator or rectifier.

2004 Honda, 1100 Shadow Spirit, starts fine, ideals fine, but when I put it in gear it dies


Hi, David_rebeka and the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty wiring to any safety switch.
2. Safety switches loose at the mounting point.
3. Faulty kickstand safety switch.
4. Failed kickstand safety switch circuit diode.
5. Stretched side stand spring.
6. Side stand not coming up far enough to disengage switch.
7. Faulty clutch lever safety switch.
8. Faulty neutral safety switch.
9. Clutch not properly adjusted.
10. Clutch plates sticking, forward lurch
