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.

These bikes are notorious for doing this. You must have a good battery to start these engines. I had a '94 VT1100 Shadow and it did the same thing. I bought a new battery and that solved the problem. Take you battery out and take it to an automotive parts house. They'll usually test the battery for you free of charge. Back when I had my Shadow, the only people that made the battery was Yuasa and it was that Yumacron battery. Expensive but it made the bike start well. Good Luck!
