Question about 2003 Honda VT 1100 C Shadow Spirit
Can''t find procedure on valve adjust for 03 honda shadow vt1100c
If the same as 1985-1998 VT 1100 - you have a hydraulic valves, so NO adjusting, if Noise - valve tappets clogged, take out engine oil, use cleaning oil, start engine and run it till tapping goes away.
Then use Motul 10-40W, this one have add of cleaner in and better shifting.

Hydrolic failure is caused by mixing hydroscopic (DOT3) with petrolium based (DOT5) ater and oils don't mix. Blockage at return port won't allow fluid to return to master cylinder. Clutch will not engage if this were the case. The leak would be your best tell. Not knowing exact leak location it would be hard to say. inspection of master cylinder plunger seals couldn't hurt. If dissimular fluids have been mixed all rubber components have been contaminated and must be replaced

Remove the Left side cover (as you are sitting on the bike).
Disconnect the negative cable first (left), then the positive. Remove the battery holder bolt (above battery). Lift up on the front of the battery and remove the vent tube. The battery will then come right out.
When installing new battery, make sure the vent tube is attached, and connect the positive cable before the negative. Sparks and batteries don't get along...
Please let me know if this helped.

You should have disc brakes??? They are not adjustable.
It is common for a caliper piston to freeze up or become corroded and bind up so it will not move freely.

Remove the spark plug, put the piston on TDC compression. Now, with engine cold, set the clearance on the intake to .004 to .006. Now set the exhaust to .007 to .009.
