Question about 2002 Honda VT 750 CD Shadow A.C.E. Deluxe

1 Answer

Healights I have an '03 vt750cd shadow ace, with 35.000km. I'm having problems with the starter button. Sometimes the starter won't engage and the headlights won't turn on either. Sometimes the lights will randomly turn on while I'm driving and then turn off again. I checked the fuse the wiring, everything that I thought would cause a problem. any suggestions? thanks a lot.

When I push the start button on my 03 Honda Shadow ACE, 750cc the bike wont start it does nothing. However with the button half way the bikes starts, bad switch?

The button is supposed to turn off the headlight when pushed in halfway and engage the solenoid when pushed in the rest of the way. It is not supposed to engage the starter halfway but NOT all the way. I think the button is either dirty , shorting ,or damaged. You can carefully take it apart and try cleaning it . If that does not work, you will have to replace the switch assembly. New or used , either is fine as long as it works. Honda only sells the switch with the housing as an assembly.

No start

The starter button on a Honda does two things. When pushed in half way it turns off the headlight so there is more juice for the starter, then when pushed in the rest of the way it engages the solenoid going to the starter. It's pretty obvious that you need a right switch assembly. Or a good starter button removed from another switch assembly. Honda only sells the button as part of the complete switch assembly. Sometimes you can take a switch apart and clean the button contacts(I have done this) But you must work carefully so you dont damage or lose pieces.Sometimes the only option is to buy a different switch.Good Luck.

How do you open the seat on a honda shadow ace vt750cd

If it has the original seat, there is nothing to open. You remove the seat. First, remove the passenger seat by removing the bolt behind it that secures it to the fender, then lift the back of the seat, and push it forward until the front bracket is disengaged from the front bolt (if you lift the back and look closely, you will see a keyhole slot in the bracket that engages the top of the front bolt). This front bolt secures the back of the rider seat; remove it, and you can lift the seat from the back, pull, and it is free of the motorcycle. My ACE 750 is a 2002 model, and I think they are all the same.
