If the engine turns over at a good rate but there is still no spark, you are more than likely looking at a problem with the coils. Check them with a multimeter, but also check HT leads and plugs! Oh...and if there is an engine kill switch. That one has had me more than once in the past!

1986 Honda VT 500 C Shadow starter spins engine will not turn over


Hi, Ksholes1127 the starter drive/Bendix/clutch is a mechanical gear driven component that engages the clutch pack ring gear to turn over the engine. It has an internal mechanism that allows the gear to turn in one direction and once the engine starts allows the drive gear to free spin. If gear free spins in both directions then the drive gear has failed, it is not serviceable and needs to be replaced.
