SOURCE: I have a 1986 Honda Shadow VT1100.... The problem

Did the problem with the fuses blowing start just after the new fuel pump was installed? I would guess there is a loose connection or a wire on the frame rail that has been pinched by the tank.

1986 Honda Shadow vt1100 does not start.


I don't know if this will help but just for GP the 85/86 Shadow are famous for electrical problems. If it is damp and you havn't cleaned the plugs not spark plugs the connector plugs on the wire harness it may have some buildup of that green stuff like a car battery does some time. On mine I ended up changing the coils and the electric fuel pump. You may have a problem with your stator also. Well this is just stuff I would check if it were mine. I got an 86 that runs as good as any of the new bikes that my friends have and just as fast. I hope this helped some.
