Your clutch plates have lasted 25 years. It is probably time to get some new plates. Have your dealer get you a set of Barnett clutch plates.

SOURCE: tail light indicator remains on, 1984 honda shadow

if the tail light is working, then look at the sensor, it is placed under the seat( it is a small black box 2x1,5cm) disconnect and clean contacts. Also put some contact spray in other wire joints.

Will a honda shadow 750 exhaust fit a honda shadow 500 or what exhaust will fit a 84 honda shadow vt500?

This would depend on what year 750 the exhaust came off of. If you don't know the likely answer is no. Even if the bold patters, and casting was the same, there is likely a different arraingement of othe stuff bolted to the vt500 that will not match up to the 750.

That said if you know someone who is good with a welder, it CAN be MADE to fit :)

Tail and brake light wring for a 1984 honda shadow.

I can't answer your question but I reckon if you find and look at any Honda wiring diagram around that year it could provide some clues - the wiring colours are likely to be the same...
