Hi Karen, for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix or parts inquiry. If necessary transport your vehicle to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your issue. Good luck and have a nice day. 1994 Honda Motorcycle Service Repair Workshop Manuals

SOURCE: How do you get the battery out of a 1989 honda shadow 1100

Hi,
Remove the Left side cover (as you are sitting on the bike).
Disconnect the negative cable first (left), then the positive. Remove the battery holder bolt (above battery). Lift up on the front of the battery and remove the vent tube. The battery will then come right out.
When installing new battery, make sure the vent tube is attached, and connect the positive cable before the negative. Sparks and batteries don't get along...
Please let me know if this helped.

SOURCE: how to change sparkplugs on honda shadow motorcycle

VT1100 has two spark plugs per cylinder, the sparkplug caps are snap-ons so they're fairly easy to remove. You need a spark plug socket wrench to remove and replace the spark plugs.

SOURCE: My 2004 Honda shadow aero vt750 is running poorly.

has the bike been sitting for a time ..sounds like the carbs need pulled and cleaned..you could try draining the fuel out at the float bowls there should be drain screws at the bottom there could be dirt or water in them sometimes this will help without pulling them ..good luck

Just bought a 1994 Shadow 1100.Bike was sitting for a while Got it running but wont idle,and Back fires .Would this be a carb.problem or something else?


Yes, it is a carb problem. The carbs need to be thoroughly cleaned. It won't idle because the slow speed circuit is gummed up. The back fire is a situation where one carb is driving another. The best carb is driving the engine and the worst carb is running rich. This imbalance causes the backfire.
