There is none!

A compression test is done on an engine at operating temperature.
This allows the pistons, rings, etc., to be fully expanded, and to give an accurate reading.

Your clutch plates have lasted 25 years. It is probably time to get some new plates. Have your dealer get you a set of Barnett clutch plates.

SOURCE: 96 Honda Shadow 1100c V-Twin

is this the one that kick in at a higher rpm to burn more gasses while running at speed? is it not running as it should, are you having an issue other than it doesnt do what you thought it should.No spark in rear cylinder or just on the one plug out of the two? If all is checking out as you said its got to spark.trade the coil thats on one with that other one see if the trouble is the same or moved with the coil to its new location.coil may work but not be good enough to run.

Need the compression specs for a 1983 Honda Shadow VT500C


165 pounds per cylinder. It can be a little less since the motor is not new anymore. As long as they are with in 10 pds of each-other. Anything less then 125 pounds per cylinder, then its time to rebore 1 size over.

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.

1985 honda VT 500c shadow one cylinder when engine hot


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Soon as the problem comes about, check the pulser coil:
  • passive - depending on the manufacturer of the pulser generator, anywhere from 50 to 500 ohms. As long as it is not shorted (0 ohms) or open (no reading), then it should normally be good.
  • active - while cranking or engine running, check the voltage coming from the pulser coil. It would be a pulsating 0.5VAC. It might be to your advantage to use an analog / needle type voltmeter.
Post back result.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.
