Question about 2003 Honda VT 750 CD Shadow A.C.E. Deluxe

2 Answers

My 2003 ACE lost connection to battery.

My 2003 ACE tried to start the other day, turned over a couple of times then sounded like it kicked back and now I have no electricity. Battery still shows fully charges when I remove it and put a multimeter on it. What could be blocking my electricity?

    Here's what I did to fix this problem: Remove the battery and take it to someone who has the correct testing equipment. It was bad. A new battery fixed the problem. Even though it showed a full charge, it was shot.

Hello dfhampton, just a little fyi for you. Next time leave the battery on the bike and have some one try to start it while holding the multimeter on it. See if voltage drops significantly, if so, it's a bad battery. You need around 10.6 volts minimum to get the bike cranking. Also check on how many amps it has with the meter. The label on the battery should say the minimum CCA it is rated for. CCA stands for cold cranking amps which is self explanatory. Just some FYI.

You will have to check the fuses, check the main wire from battery to the solenoid and tothe fuse box, there must be a disconnected wire somewhere especially the main wire.
Hope this helps.

Hard starting, turns fine to start with then it kicks back like timing is to high. It will start if battery is fully chg.

Depending on the mileage sounds like the timing chain might be bad. Check the timing and maybe ****** the distributor a couple degrees to see if it stops kicking back. Hope this helps

It sounds like a bad connection somewhere, due to a loose or corroded connection. This would explain it gradually getting worse. Check your battery cable connections. Make sure they are clean and tight. Also connections at starter. So, check those connections, let me know what you find. If that isn't it, I'll try to help further.
