Question about 2000 Honda VT 1100 C Shadow Spirit
Now that is strange. Check your system voltage, while running you need to be at 13.8 to 14.2 or so... Are any bulbs LED's that may be affecting it. Be certain that you actually got the flasher, and not a 4 way for your bike.
Check grounds and connections. Check that you have the correct bulb specified, and finally if this is the only issue on your bike, there are electronic flashers, that are based on time energized rather than filiment load, used often for trailering in cars...

THE LAST THING THAT EVER HAPPENS IS FREON LOSS.
SO TRY THIS FIRST ...
LET THE COOLER STAND WITH "NO POWER FOR 24 HRS.
MAKE SURE IT INSIDE AT ROOM TEMP. NO HIGHER THAN 75 deg. AFTER THE ALOTTED TIME TURN THE T-STAT-"OFF" AND TURN THE POWER "ON" ...
THE CONDENSER FAN SHOULD START IMMEDIATELY. NOW LISTEN REAL CAREFULLY BY THE COMPRESSOR TO HEAR ANY CLICK NOISE. IF YOU DO THAT IS THE EXTERNAL OVERLOAD ( bI-METAL SAFTEY T-STAT THAT PROTECTS THE COMPRESSOR. TURN POWER OFF AGAIN AND DO THE FOLLOWING.
THERE IS : 1) A START (plug-in) RELAY THAT PLUGS INTO THE COMPRESSOR.
2) THERE IS A START ASSIST CAPACITOR MOUNTED USUALLY ON THE TOP OF THE COMPRESSOR TEREMINAL COVER.( THIS IS HELD ON WITH A METAL STRAP THAT CAN BE "POPED-OFF" WITH A SCREW DRIVER. OR IT MAY HAVE 2 MOUNTING SCREWS.
3) THERE IS A ROUND BI-METAL T-STAT THAT PROTECTS YOUR COMPRESSOR.(AS STATED ABOVE).
MAKE A DRAWING OF WHERE EVERY WIRE GOES AND THE DEVICES ON PAPER. .... THEN ... AND ONLY THEN REMOVE ALL 3 PARTS AND TAKE THEM TO YOUR LOCAL APPLIANCE REPAIR OUTLET. eg. APPLIANCE PARTS. APCO ETC.
THEY WILL CHECK ALL 3 COMPONENTS FOR YOU AND MOST ALL HAVE UNIVERSAL REPLACEMENTS FOR ALL 3 DEVICES NO MATTER WHAT BRAND YOU HAVE.... AND THEY SHOULD BE ABOUT $10-$15 EACH.
I HAVE REPAIRED HVAC & REFRIGERATION EQUIPMENT FOR OVER 40 YEARS. WHAT I DO IS REPLACE ALL 3 DEVICES. IF ONE IS BAD IT TENDS TO OVERHEAT THE OTHER COMPONENTS AND WEAKENS THEM.
NOTE: NEVER INSTALL REFRIGERANT SELFTAPPING VALVES TO CHECK FOR FREON ... A AMP DRAW WILL TELL YOU IF COMPRESSOR IS RUNNING AT FULL LOAD , AND AT THE EVAPORATOR YOU SHOULD HAVE A 10-20 DEG F. DROP IN TEMP. YOUR EVAP COIL SHOULD FORM A EVEN FROST ON IT IN ABOUT 2-3 HOURS.
THE MAIN THING IS TO ENSURE COMPRESSOR IS RUNNING.
IF YOU HAVE A THERMOMETER, THE LARGER COPPERLINE ON THE COMPRESSOR SHOULD BE ABOUT 50-60 DEG.AND EVENTUALLY WILL "SWEAT". THE SMALLER LINE SHOULD READ 120-150 DEG "AT THE COMPRESSOR" OUTLET CONNECTION.
MAKE SURE YOUR CONDENSOR AND EVAPORATOR COILS ARE BOTH ABSOLUTELY CLEAN. (CHECK WITH SMALL BRIGHT FLASH LIGHT TO SEE THROUGH COIL FINS.
THAT SHOULD SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM. YOU MAY FIND WHEN TAKING THE PARTS OFF ... A BROKEN OR BURNT WIRE. IF SO REPLACE IT WITH AT LEAST #12 STRANDED WIRE.
PROPER WIRE AND TERMINALS ARE AVAILABLE AT THE APPLIANCE PARTS STORE IN YOUR AREA.
GOOD LUCK ... JOE_REX
