Question about 2002 Honda VT 1100 C Shadow Spirit
If your bike is actually overheating and the fan is not turning on. You either have a bad fan switch ( screws into radiator and has two wires ) or a bad fan motor . A bad fan switch is fairly common on Honda's. The bad news is the switch is about $100 . Try jumping the wires to the switch to see if the motor is bad or not. If the bike is not actually overheating, you could have a temp sender giving the light a false reading. The temp sender is located on the thermostat housing and runs about $50. Remember, Shadows have small radiators and tend to run high on the temp gauge, and , Honda gauges tend to not be that accurate as they age.
