Honda Shadow 600 c won't start in gear after battery change

I changed the battery on my 2005 honda shadow 600c bike and it will start in neutral. However, as soon as I put it in first gear, the engine is killed. If If I put it in neutral, it starts again, but in gear it dies. Kill switch is in run position, gas is good, battery is charged (obviously), and I have no idea why this is doing this. The kick stand is also up

The kickstand switch is either bad or bent out of position. See if you can activate the switch manually. Does the bike run now? If so, the switch is bent out of position. If it still won't run, jumper the wires together until you can replace the switch.

2005 Honda VT 750 DC Shadow Spirit will not turn over


Hi, Anonymous before testing any electrical component in the Starting System it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage, the battery is faulty and must be replaced. AGM type batteries fall into this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter.
4. Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty.
5. FOB battery low or dead.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand, clutch, neutral safety switch.
9. Security alarm needs a reset.
10. Starter relay, solenoid, starter motor or circuit wiring faulty.
11. Starter armature or field coils have failed.
12. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
13. Faulty ignition relay.
14. The electric starter is working but starter clutch has failed.
15. Check for engine trouble codes.

I just put a brand new clutch cable on my 2005 Honda shadow CI 600 bike and it won't change into first it just dies when I try any help please ??


Simple solution...readjust the cable, possibly a little tighter???? Make sure the bike is in neutral, if this is the way you set it the first time, than put the transmission in first gear and reset the cable. All of this is done while the engine is OFF! Hope this helps.

2004 Honda VT 1100 C2 Shadow Sabre neutral switch not working@


Hi, Michellep282 and the usual suspects are:
1. Neutral light bulb burnt out.
2. Faulty neutral switch.
3. A loose bulb in the socket.
4. Faulty wiring from the neutral switch to the light.
5. If the neutral light stays on while the bike is in gear the wire from the light to the neutral switch is grounded.

I have a 2005 Honda VT 750 DC Shadow Spirit, and won't start up when cold and the battery dies/no mo juice after a couple of tryes, can I jump start it with a battery on a idleing car?


DO NOT EVER jump start with car, car battery hase too much power, you will blow your fuses and maybe even ecu if your bika hase it. Thry charging your battery when it's off the bike. But you should buy new one.
Usually battery for bikes last 3-4 year and need to be changed.

I have a 2005 Honda Shadow VT600CD oil light is on


Did oil light come on before you serviced it? Have you checked oil? If oil is low then light will come on. Does the bike have an oil filter? If the light was on before the person serviced it and it has an oil filter, then they must have not changed the oil filter. A clogged oil filter will reduce oil pressure and turn light on. Do you have the manual that came with the bike? In there it should tell you the specific reason for the light. Whether it is oil pressure or low oil level or both. I hope this helps
