Either on the back of the radiator or on the fill neck with the radiator cap, you will find two switches. The switch with one wire is the temperature sender for the gauge. The switch with two wires going to it is the fan switch. That is the switch that turns the fan on and off depending on how hot the engine gets. Most Honda fan switches do not turn on until the temperature gauge is licking the red .

2006 Honda 750cc Shadow Aero starts with choke, runs for a minute, sputters and stalls. Won't start again for a couple of days, then starts right up. Electrical?

Hi there
I once had a wee car,whenever it got too much petrol inside itself it refused to go anywhere and had to rest for some time and you had to be very careful with the choke and the petrol so it did not swallow too much of it and need another rest.

Where is fan switch located on 83 honda shadow vt 500c fan runs all the time feel like someone has wired it direct

fan switch is located on radiator .You will know it by wires to screwin thermo.If the bike doesnot run hot then check this.Could be faulty.This maybe the reason you suspect wiring bypass.Might be an old emergency repair that never got repaired.Also it sounds like the fan runs as soon as the key is on bike running or not.
The performance of the bike will be better when you fix this not to mention the gas mileage as the bike will be allowed to reach proper operating temp.good luck !!
