Question about 2005 Honda VT 750 Shadow Aero
You just have to track it down.
The starter switch is doing something, or you wouldn't see any dimming.
Apply power directly to the starter with a jumper cable from the (+) post to the starter. If the starter doesn't turn, have someone help you. have then put the one probe of a volt meter on the housing of the starter motor, and the other on the negative battery. If you measure more than 0.1V, you have a grounding problem.
If there is no grounding problem you are either mistaken that the starter is good, or mistaken that the battery is good.
If the starter turns fine, operate the solenoid manually, rather than using the start button. If the solenoid (which you called the magnetic starter switch) will not operate, since it is new there is a problem most likely with it's grounding. If it operated fine, you have a bad connection between the start button and the solenoid.
It does not take much resistance in the high-current part of the starter circuit [(+) to Solenoid to (+) terminal on the starter] to keep the starter from even turning the engine. 1 ohm will limit the current to 12 amps. 2 ohms lowers the available current to 6 amps, just a little more than the high beam light uses.
