• Frustrated. Headlight switch is getting power. Checked it with a voltmeter — Honda Shadow Spirit Ace Aero Riders

    Frustrated! Headlight switch is getting power. Checked it with a voltmeter. Replaced fuse with a new one. Cleaned the starter switch again. Tried New bulb and old bulb (filiment still looks good). Cleaned headlight connections on plug.

    Maybe new bulb is bad??

    Wires at connections look good best I can tell. Looked at high/low switch and it looks good. Again, best I can tell.

    Any ideas before I have to take I to the shop? Im in marietta ga if someone local wants to help for a few beers:):) Thanks.

    Need help friends. I asked a while back about my headlight going out on my 98 ACE Tourer.

    I checked the fuses. All look good. May change them all anyway.

    I disassembled the starter switch and cleaned it.

    I replaced the bulb.

    Still no headlight. High or low. Everything else on the bike works.

    What can i check next? Thank you.

    So I've been trying to find reasonably priced rear lowering kits for my spirit 1100, my 750 has lowering brackets on it that just reposition the rear shock mount, exactly what I want, been all over online and everyone seems to be charging 80-100 bucks. Call me cheap, but that seems like a ridiculous amount of money to pay for two brackets to me. Anyone know where I can find some for much cheaper? Or maybe some shorter rear shocks, because at this point, the only option in my budget is a pair of rigid struts a guy is selling locally for 40 bucks, which I've been holding off on doing just in case I find another option.

    Thought it appropriate to share this since I see so many beginning riders in the group.

    Always hug the outside line on blind corners and don't ride above 80% of yours and the bikes ability so you have room for error and the unexpected.

    Riding hard is different than riding stupid.

    Please remember to ride smart and stay safe.

    Ok looking for some help.... I took the battery out of my bike and took it to get it tested and they charged it for me. I got it home put it back in the bike to start the bike but it wouldn't start it wants to but I think she's too cold.

    So I went to take the battery out but the screws where too hot to touch. I should say I didn't tighten everything down when I put the battery back in to test it. Any ideas?
