You ill need to take off your left engine cover, remove the flywheel, and replace the starter gear (part#5) and three rollers (part#13). This is your one-way clutch that allows your starter motor to turn the engine over. The gear mating surface has become rough or chattered and is not grabbing properly.Replace these parts and your starter motor will turn the engine over again. http://www.bikebandit.com/houseofmotorcycles/1983-honda-vt500c-shadow/o/m9690#sch421900

The brake pedal on my 1984 Honda Shadow 500VT needs to be pressed deeply to apply brake, how do I adjust it so as to take the play out of it.


Replace the rear brake pads. The thicker pad will require less pedal movement. The other option is to tighten up the rear brake actuator at the rear hub. Put it up on the center stand and adjust away until you figure it out. Make sure it is in neutral and the rear tire spins freely when the brake is not applied. Push the brake pedal to see how it all works, you'll figure it out.

1983 honda shadow vt750c. not getting spark. power to coils. plugs are good. is there a way to bypass the cdi boxes so i don't have to use them


Dis-connect the negative connection from the the top of the motor and check for corrosion. The bike with not fire if it isn't getting a good ground. I have a 1983 750 shadow would not start dumped a lot of parts into it before I found the corroded connection.
