    Water condensate has probably built up in the gas tank and is causing the problem. If your Shado is early enough not to have fuel injection, then clean the carbs also.

Fuel pump relay...had this problem a couple years ago. It's used for if the bike tips over, it kills the fuel pump. You can bypass this or find a used relay. New ones are discontinued. It shows in the Honda service manual for that year how to bypass the relay to test the fuel pump. In your case it's to test to see if the relay is the cause of it dying...mine would die and then not start for some time...then it would start as if nothing was wrong until it happened again. Good luck.

It may be the kill switch. Take it apart and clean the things out then lube with di-electric grease. also check things like the alternator connections and such. I have a 1982 CB750 and mine was just a bad connection to the battery.

It would be much easier to just pull the switch housing off,and clean and grease the contacts on the kill switch. But if you MUST eliminate the switch,its only two wires that youll need to cut away from the switch and connect them together.

Honda Shadow 600 c won't start in gear after battery change


The kickstand switch is either bad or bent out of position. See if you can activate the switch manually. Does the bike run now? If so, the switch is bent out of position. If it still won't run, jumper the wires together until you can replace the switch.
