Question about 2004 Honda VT 1100 C2 Shadow Sabre
I've heard varying degrees of discussion on this. I've heard NEVER try to start a bike with a running vehicle and I've also talked to people who did it with success. I would have said that it was the starter switch. Hondas in my experience, are notorious for the switch going out. Sometimes it's as simple as spraying some contact cleaner in there and other times the little spring on the inside under the plastic sliders gives out.
At this point I would probably replace the switch and put a battery in it. If nothing works after you've done that you may need to bite the bullet and take her to the shop or test all of the wires with it on and see where the problem is. Good luck. The weather is getting too nice to be grounded.
