Question about 2005 Honda Shadow Spirit 750

1 Answer

Battery/ holding a charge

I recently came into a honda shadow spirit 750 and it had been in storage for the past 1.5 years now before the storage i replaced the stator because i was asked to by the previous owner and after the replacement of the part it was never riden again until it was given to me as a gift so i put the battery on a charger @ a 2% charge rate and after charging for a little more than 7hrs it started just fine but here is the problem i can start it a few times before it just wont start again and i have to recharge it and upon recharging the battery it will only take a charge up to 51% and no more it doesnt matter how long i leave it on the charger now i think i have a dead cell in the battery but if anyone else has an oppenion i am open to hear it and i would like to say in advance thanks for taking time out of your schedules to try and help me figure this out

Hi ..make sure that you have enough voltage output of your charger..If your battery is 12volts your charger must have a higher voltage out to complete the charging ..or maybe your battery is dead..long time storage of a battery can cause the battery damage ..that's all thank you

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!!!

I have a 2005 Honda VT 750 DC Shadow Spirit, and won't start up when cold and the battery dies/no mo juice after a couple of tryes, can I jump start it with a battery on a idleing car?

DO NOT EVER jump start with car, car battery hase too much power, you will blow your fuses and maybe even ecu if your bika hase it. Thry charging your battery when it's off the bike. But you should buy new one.
Usually battery for bikes last 3-4 year and need to be changed.

Hello, I have a 2005 Honda VT 750 DC Shadow Spirit, and just got "tune up", but now it won't start when cold, is there a safe way to jump start it with car cables/battery?

jump starting of a car battery can cause a spike in the charge circuit, when the bike starts it can try to charge the car battery and fry the regulator. better to roll start and take it back to the tune up specialist

I need to charge the battery on my 2002 honda shadow its a 750 how do i remove the seat

The seat has a bolt located in the storage compartment of the backrest, remove this bolt will give you access to the hold down bolts located on the rear fender for the split seat model, if your seat is not split, just removing the 1 bolt located in the compartment will fix your problem...Good luck & ride hard!!!

Where is the battery located on a 750 honda shadow spirit?

The Battery is located under the seat you must take out the 2 bolts holding the seat ******** and then slide the seat back to remove then it is under the ignition module and a plastic cover. By the way when you try to remove the battery you will need to gently pry the back of the battery box open to get the battery past the little locking lip. hope this helps.
