Question about 2002 Honda VT 1100 C2 Shadow Sabre
When I press the starter switch the starter makes a noise like it's working but the engine does not turn over at all. Is it the starter itself or the starter clutch that I should replace, or both? How do I know which one it is?

could be the wires need cleaning or new ends.or low battery power. check battery for 12 or 13 volts.if good on volts disconnect starter wire(dissconnect battery first) then hook up dc volt meter to starter hot wire and a ground at the battery.watch volt meter when u press the start button,do you still read more than 12 volts. if not replace solenoid.

You just have to track it down.
The starter switch is doing something, or you wouldn't see any dimming.
Apply power directly to the starter with a jumper cable from the (+) post to the starter. If the starter doesn't turn, have someone help you. have then put the one probe of a volt meter on the housing of the starter motor, and the other on the negative battery. If you measure more than 0.1V, you have a grounding problem.
If there is no grounding problem you are either mistaken that the starter is good, or mistaken that the battery is good.
If the starter turns fine, operate the solenoid manually, rather than using the start button. If the solenoid (which you called the magnetic starter switch) will not operate, since it is new there is a problem most likely with it's grounding. If it operated fine, you have a bad connection between the start button and the solenoid.
It does not take much resistance in the high-current part of the starter circuit [(+) to Solenoid to (+) terminal on the starter] to keep the starter from even turning the engine. 1 ohm will limit the current to 12 amps. 2 ohms lowers the available current to 6 amps, just a little more than the high beam light uses.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the help. Will try your suggestions. Already did the jumper tot he starter adn it is good."

Check the teeth on the starter. It sounds like they are getting bound up when the starter engages. Friction will hold the starter engaged if the teeth on the gear or starter are gouged up.

It sounds like the linkage is loose the shifter is not engaging at the right time like its supposed to. Is there a way to tighten it? Sometimes yes, sometimes no. If not you may need to replace the clutch lever or shift lever itself and it should solve your problem.
