    Evening Everyone — Honda Shadow Owners Ireland, UK Europe

    Evening Everyone,

    I am looking for some advice on the 600.

    The choke on my bike was really sticking, it took 2 hands to pull it all the way out. Dad ran some oil down it as it was rusted quite bad in places but now it's too loose. The springs on the end actually pull the choke knob back in. Does anyone know how to adjust it?

    Also, I've got some aluminium tubing, 7/8", and am trying to bend it, anyone got any ideas on how to? Our copper pipe benders won't budge it.

    Thanks all

    Have a good evening!

    Evening all, hope everyone had a good Christmas and I wish you a happy New Year!

    I've been working on a couple of mods for my bike. I've got a clutched shifter in the making and will be making my own seat.

    I've made a mockup bracket for the shifter but have the steel coming for the final version. I plan on having this working along side the current clutch so I can use both for ease.

    I've also purchased a big black leather coat which I will take the stitching out and will be used for my seat. I am just trying to located some thin foam to use for the padding. I am currently swinging towards using a garden kneeling pad.

    Evening all,

    Some of you may remember that I've been having problems with my bike since I got it over a year ago. Well I had the carbs ultrasonic cleaned and the guy also found one of the air fuel mixture screws was bent.

    So i took my bike for a short ride and it still isn't running right haha

    I took a look at the air fuel mixture screws because he changed one and they were very far out. Strange thing is that if I turn them both all the way in the bike revs higher where as it used to die if I did that. So I set it to the stock setting and it was worse, popping etc I am pretty sure the mixture screws shouldn't be set to all the way in

    Hi guys and girls — Honda Shadow Owners Ireland, UK Europe

    Hi guys and girls.

    Advice needed, please.

    I want to put a bar on the front of my shadow with a pair of running lights on it.

    (The bulbs are only 5watts each).

    Anyone know how to connect these up wiring-wise? Any help would be much appreciated.

    Cheers from Ash.

    Evening all

    So I've put bigger main and slow jets in my bike to try and rid the laggy throttle but now when I change down gear the bike stalls. It's getting quite regular and obviously can be a bit dangerous if you coming up to a roundabout or junction and need to keep moving.

    Is this air fuel mixture or idle too low?

    Cheers

    Hi guys&gals, my "mistress" is nagging me to paint its engine black and also asking for a rear end surgery. I wanna get a second hand fender for the experiment. I can't chop it, bcs I don't want to loose opportunity to take a pillion for a ride. Now I may have rear fender, but can anyone advice me on how to remove the engine and prepare it for soda blasting and painting?

    Evening all did anyone else s Shadow come with a black hole — Honda Shadow Owners Ireland, UK Europe

    Evening all, did anyone else's Shadow come with a black hole?

    I took the seat off the other day and the bolt fell into where the rear suspension is and has never been seen again.

    Today I took the carbs off and the sub air filter bolt fell forwards towards the radiator. I took the radiator off, fan off, it's gone...... WTF. A 1 hour job turned into 4 hours of searching for an fing bolt......

    Occasionally I've been having problems changing down the gears. The gear change just won't move., Approaching junctions I have to give myself plenty of time and give it lots of revs whilst changing. If I stop before getting into first I'm stuck in that gear. I've had it in the dealer's three times and for them it's been fine

    It's been doing it again today. Has anyone had this problem or got any ideas please. It's a 14 plate 750 with nearly 12000 miles

    So after having my shadow serviced at a garage (cos I wanted a stamp in the book) the HT lead seemed to be shorting on the rocker cover, my fuel light no longer works and my battery died the next day. Could this be a result of something being done wrong?

    Has anyone had their fuel light go before? I have no idea what to look for to fix it.
