I have a 1985 honda shadow vt500c, and like many others before me, im in need of a cdi box, or a fix to a broken cdi box, the used ones on line are a bit pricey for my wallet.


Unfortunately, the ONLY thing you can do is replace the cdi box....what REALLY sucks is that those cdi boxes were only used by Honda for 2 years...85 & 86...all the other years/bikes had MUCH cheaper units on them...And DO NOT, I repeat DO NOT waste your time on a USED part that is 30 years old!!! There is NO WAY to test a cdi box!!! Bite the bullet & buy a NEW one if you want to fix it & forget it.....there are new ones available online from a company in the UK for about $259.00 I speak from personal experience with this EXACT issue & once you replace the cdi box, that bike will run (providing everything else is good)

Best of luck!

I have an 83 shadow vt 500c. It bogs down when


This is more than likely a carb (fuel) issue. Start with verifing you correct float level. Next check for correct needle position, diaphram, and springs on same. Also check to make sure clip for "accelator pump" is in correct place. Hope this helps.

Removing the seat to 85' Shadow VT-500c


first you should not have to replace the seat to replace the battery. You take the mounting bolt off the right hand side of the battery cage and slide it out. Disconnect the battery terminals and slide it out. To take the seat off the mounting bolts are located on the rear of the seat by the brake light.

1985 honda VT 500c shadow one cylinder when engine hot


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Soon as the problem comes about, check the pulser coil:
  • passive - depending on the manufacturer of the pulser generator, anywhere from 50 to 500 ohms. As long as it is not shorted (0 ohms) or open (no reading), then it should normally be good.
  • active - while cranking or engine running, check the voltage coming from the pulser coil. It would be a pulsating 0.5VAC. It might be to your advantage to use an analog / needle type voltmeter.
Post back result.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.
