Hi, Jimmy and the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 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 batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
3. Check 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 if necessary.
4. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and module.
5. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting/leaking, spark plug cable connections loose check for spark leakage in the dark.
6. Faulty ignition coil or electronic control module.
7. Faulty pulse coil.
8. Faulty CKP, CMP, or BAS sensor.
9. Faulty ignition switch.
10. Faulty run/off switch
11. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
12. Security alarm failing to disarm needs reset

SOURCE: i have a 86 honda shadow vt 1100 has spark wont start

the Bike need three things to run Spark ait and fuel. if your sure you have spark then move to fuel, check if fuel is getting to carbs. if not turn on petcock if pet **** is on and still no fuel may need to add fuel or check and see if petcock is clogged. if petcock is clogged then remove gas tank and clear out any and all debres.

If you are getting fuel to carbs and bike still does not run, check air box to see that it hasent become a new home for mice. if bike has been sitting for a while 60 days or more (ethinol in gas REALLY cloges up your carbs) you will want to pull carbs and clean flote bowls and all air ana fule passages, main jet and emultion tube slow jet and emultion tube check and clean venturi slide and check slide diaphram for holes. Check all seals and floats (Floats: if the floats have any kind of a hole in them they will fill up with fuel and flood the float bowls) check float bowl pins ( some times they get stuck closed not allowing float bowls to fill with fuel.

If you are not sure you can do this that find a local motorcycle mechanic who can help you. to keep repair costs down you may want to bring them the set of carbs removed from your bike (if you are able to)

SOURCE: WHICH RETHREADING TOOL SIZE DO I NEED FOR A 1300 HONDA STATELINE

I am pretty sure the plug is 12X125 but you should take one out to make sure, there are a few spark plug kits available i use HELI-COIL for repairing threads my choice. and the coils come in 3 lengths.

How many spark plugs are there to change on my 2005 Honda VTX shadow ?


The stock two cylinder 583ccm engine on your VTX uses two spark plugs per cylinder for a total of FOUR. NGK #DPR6E is the stock plug. They should run about $11 a set.

best wishes!

My 2004 honda vtx 1300 will not stay running when i first start it when there is a lot of dampness in the air.


Try a product called "Seafoam" at your auto parts store. Its made for marine engines, and really helped my Shadow Sabre with the same problem after many other products failed.
