you need to remove the starter and bench test it. Once you get the starter off you can hook the ground of a jumper cable to the starter and then touch the positive to the postitve post and you may need to jump to the solenoid

SOURCE: I have a 2000 Honda VTR1000 dies after giving gas

Maybe - can you charge the battery?
If the voltage is too low, the FI won't work properly.

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.
