Hi, Laurenjd if your headlight is not working, only one beam works, keeps burning out, blinking, dim or surges from bright to dim to bright the first thing you need to check is the headlight bulb for damaged filaments then check your light circuit fuse, then check your head light bulb socket ground wire for a clean tight connection, that being said the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty ground or power supply wire to headlight bulb socket.
2. Worn down solder contacts or loose fit of the bulb base in the socket due to vibration.
3. Worn, chafed, or broken wires in the light circuit.
4. Corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets in wire connectors.
5. Faulty hi/lo beam switch.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Fuse is good but no continuity on both sides.
8. Faulty headlight relay.
9. Faulty wiring between battery positive and headlight bulb socket.
10. Weak charging alternator/generator/lighting coil
11. Faulty voltage regulator/rectifier ground or overcharging.

SOURCE: how to change sparkplugs on honda shadow motorcycle

VT1100 has two spark plugs per cylinder, the sparkplug caps are snap-ons so they're fairly easy to remove. You need a spark plug socket wrench to remove and replace the spark plugs.

SOURCE: changing headlight

Had a similar problem on mine when I installed the cobra light bar. If you remove the headlight from the housing there is a connector (think it was orange) with a single wire. It is the starter-light cutout. my connector shorted out so I had to cut it and replace it. No headlight problems since. It is worth checking, I had to pay $50 to have the Honda shop find it. Good luck & ride safe!

Blinkers on my 1999 Honda VT1100 C3 Aero wont blink , the blinker will go on when switched just wont blink


Most likely a blown bulb try changing it.
Do the other indicators speed up? If so blown bulb.
Do the other indicators work? If not maybe a fuse. If fuse is good, could be the flasher unit. They are cheap and easy to replace.

2006 honda shadow aero 750 has no power at the headlight plug. it has power at the fuse and the fuse is good but nothing at the headlight


Try cleaning the two position switch. It's called the starter button. You push it in halfway and the headlight turns off to allow for more juice to go to the starter. Push it in all the way and it activates the starter solenoid. It is probably either dirty or broken.

Need wiring scymatics for 1999 Honda 1100 Shadow Aero Motorcycle. (Need to wire headlights, all lights).


You need to buy a repair manual as not too many people give free electrical schematic. Can try Haynes or Clymers.

Try checking the headlight fuse. I believe your fuse box is either under your seat, or under the right side cover near the exhaust.
