I have the same problem, The most likely problem is that your charging
system is not working or your battery has a faulty or shorted battery cell.

The battery should be load tested at an
auto shop or motorcyle dealer.
This will verify if it is still okay.
It must be fully charged to do a load test.

You can connect a multimeter to the battery
terminals and see if the bike is charging.
Speed the bike up to about 3000 rpm
and see if the battery voltage is about 14 volts
or slightly higher.

If the voltage is only the same as the battery
or under 13 volts then the bike is not charging
properly.

This could be a faulty alternator stator coil
or a faulty regulator/rectifier unit.

The alternator stator connector
is under the seat. It has a white
connector with 3 yellow wires.

Unplug the connector and check the
"AC" voltage between each set of yellow
wires with the bike running fast idle.

Between any two yellow wires you should have
30-60 volts "AC"
Also, none of the yellow wires
should have any connection to ground.
You can check that with the ohms setting
on the meter.

If the stator voltage is low or none
then the stator coil under the
left engine cover will need to
be replaced.

If the voltage is okay on the stator
but not on the battery then
the regulator/rectifier unit is likely
faulty. There is no test, just replace
it if the stator voltage is good and
the battery is good.

To check for a drain just remove your
negative battery cable and put a test
light between the battery and the cable.
If it lights up with the key off, that
is a drain. Pop fuses until it goes off
to find the troubled circuit.

I have a 2001 Honda Shadow Spirit VT 750DC. When trying to start it, after winter storage. I noticed gas was pouring out of the end of my Carburetor, Air Vent Tube "No. 6" At the other end is connected to a "T" , that goes into the top of the Carbs.

I checked the photos and Diagram shows no connection, HELP!!!

1998 VT 1100 C Shadow Spirit: brand new battery;died after a few hours of ridein...


Could be, replace or have it tested. My old bike a 1998 VT1100CT had a problem with the starter being weak, like the battery was dying. Turned out to be the battery ground wire bolt, going to the back of the starter. It just had a little rust on it, and the bolt broke when I went to remove it. But once replaced the bike starts great, we replaced the battery, took apart the starter tested everything. All for a slightly rusted bolt not making a good ground... Check your Regulator, and any corrosion around the connections!
