1993 honda shadow 1100 where is the turn relay?

!986 - under the right side cover above the battery, I think at 1994 it is under the left side cover and it is a small black plastic box, and when you turn the signal on you can here "tick.tick.tick", if this tick is to fast, then one or more bulb is bad.

My 92 Honda vt 600 shadow has started to make a squealing sound

By tick over I am assuming you mean when you engage the starter to start the bike.
This sounds like your starter sprag clutch is slipping.
The starter clutch is located behind the flywheel on the left side of the motor.
Hope this helps.

I have a suzuki sv 650s that will not hold a reeds 13.2 volts at idel & 12.8 at higher has a new battery & it was charged properly.

thats a problem with the regulator off of you magneeto that charges your batery its usualy located on the side of your motor under the honda plate there is a little round cover that covers it but if you take that off all your oil will come out so watch out for that.
