SOURCE: 84 honda shadow 700 vt lights are unpredictable

There seems to be some short in the circuit of the high beam, you will have to follow the high beam wiring, best would be to get the color of the high beam wire frm the head light bulb socket and trace it along you will sure find somwhere the along it the short.
Check the light switch and the blinker switch too.
Hope this helps!

SOURCE: i am trying to re

Check the contact plates inside the bulb sockets. On old sockets sometimes one of the contacts will melt or sink into the plate causing half the tail light to not work. Many times I have taken the plate/with wires out of a different light and repaired a socket. I have also changed turn signals from front to back by switching the contact plates. Horns are notorious for not working. Check it by hooking power directly to it. If you have done a thorough plug and unplug of all the wire connections, your next option is to carefully take apart the handle bar switch and clean the contacts. If you ave already tried another flasher unit (12 volt trailer flashers are cheap) be sure to replace the old fuses with new ones. Old fuses sometimes separate internally and no longer work correctly.Also do not be afraid of taking the ignition contact base off and cleaning that. If you take off the ignition switch, put the key to the on position, push the three tabs, you can pull off the electrical contact base , carefully disassemble it, and clean it. Good Luck

1985 Honda VT 500 C Shadow brake light not working


Hi, Jl45lc before diagnosing any brake light issue always check the bulb and fuse first for integrity a brake light staying on is usually caused by the front brake light switch, which is mechanical, not disengaging. On early models moving the throttle control housing closer to the front brake master cylinder is the main fix. On late models, the switch gets tweaked and needs to be realigned. A brake light that does not come on when the brake lever is applied can be caused by a faulty switch or no continuity in the wiring at the switch. The rear brake light switch is hydraulic and it is extremely rare to malfunction in a closed circuit condition causing the brake light to stay on. Usually, rear brake light switch issues are caused by no brake pedal free play or a sticky rear master cylinder piston. A brake light that does not come on when the rear brake pedal is depressed can be caused by a faulty switch, air contamination in the brake line, or no continuity in the wiring at the switch.

1986 Honda VT 500 C Shadow tail light not working


Hi, Anonymous tail light issues are relatively easy to diagnose and repair always check the tail light fuse first and make sure you have power on both sides of the fuse holder and the usual suspects are:
1. Tail light bulb element is broken.
2. Tail light bulb soldered contacts are extremely worn down.
3. Tail light bulb socket corroded.
4. Tail light bulb socket has no power and or ground.
5. Tail light wiring harness damaged from the rear tire.
6. Tail light rear fender wiring harness connector faulty due to corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets.

Front brake too stiff on 1984 Honda Shadow VT500C Shadow


You should have disc brakes??? They are not adjustable.
It is common for a caliper piston to freeze up or become corroded and bind up so it will not move freely.
