Anyone ever replace the stator or rectifier before my 1100 won't hold a charge is it a hard job or easy thanks for any tips my bike is 1998 spirit 1100

  • Sounds good I will get my bike fixed fast love to ride

  • I found a rectifier on E-bay for $25 (y) its from China but it been year two and working great so far. If you do change it out make shur to get some heat sink compound as well.

  • is the heat shrink for the wires or to cover the plugs Tommy Lee. I bought my rectifier from bond a week ago and now they tell me this Thursday this Honda dealer sucks. I paid 85 for it

  • Done mine rigid with no big hopesbut actually isnt as bad as I thought to ride, seat takes allort of the bumps so keeping it rigid now, also dropped the rear as low as I could get it and added a suiced shift aswell so im not exactly going for practical

  • Nice layout, but I don't like the colours. That's an easy fix though

  • I'm changing the green on mine soon to something else so would keep the green until then, I'm looking into getting my panels done with hydro graphics at some point.

  • And the wheels painted.

  • In America you can own one of any length, but in the UK now it needs to be at least 12" long, and also a long counter weight to help you handle it.

Sold set of polished downpipes, rectifier, used fronthead, various manual tensioners, gear indicator, dynokit, leovince low mount cans, Zero Gravity double bubble dark smoke screen, a BMC race airfilter and some small used parts in just a couple of days, so busy shipping times ahead and most important: VTR owners happy again :-)

  • theres a few ways of doing it, for the best results, i'd suggest taking the headers off the bike, then attack them with a power drill with a wire brush attachment, followed by wire wool then wet n dry, then finally polish them with a quality metal polish, it takes the best part of a day and it's boring as hell.

  • Although Stainless Steel down pipes look nicer, the stock steel pipes cope better with the repeated heating/cooling process of exhaust pipes. To restore them, remove them from your bike, use a wire brush + drill, 400 sand paper, Autosol and elbow grease. To keep them in tip top condition, as a routine wipe them with a coat of light oil or WD40. It will burn when you start your bike so don't alarm if you see smoke rising. Your pipes will remain clean, smooth, and looking good.

  • another option, one I've used in the past, leave the headers on the bike and use a dremel/rotary tool, with the correct attachments, you can achieve good results, but you won't be able to get in the awkward area's, so it's a bit of a half arsed job, but still better than the yucky brown, as Edward says, use wd40/gt85/acf50 after a ride and the finish will last a lot longer.....

Has anyone experienced problems with the petcock not closing? I found that when applying vacuum to the petcock it opens but it either doesn't release the vacuum at all or very very slowly. And that is with a stiffer spring. Went for another test ride yesterday but she wasn't all too happy...this morning she was flooded so badly that the intake ports under the carbs were even filled up...engine wouldn't even turn from it creating a lock. Pulling the tank off I closed the petcock test after I had it off I open and fuel just flows!

  • You can use other kits as well depends on what you need, i have used a certain Honda GL1500 type of petcock diaphragm :-) (less expensive )

  • Thanks guys. You see, for me to buy anything other directly from Honda would take 4 to 5 weeks before I have it due to shipping. Even though a little more expensive it will be easier and less stressful for me to order the VTR specific parts.

  • I buy from main distributors, can check leadtime for you

Ok here she is my wife s 08 Spirit 750. Got a question. It needs a new battery — Honda Shadow Spirit Ace Aero Riders

Ok, here she is, my wife's 08 Spirit 750. Got a question. It needs a new battery. It just won't hold a charge. Had to "bump start" it several times today. When I went to Auto Zone, they had a battery that the specs were right, but it was about an inch taller than the one I have. Will this work, or do I need to go to the dealer to get a battery?

  • I have a "carquest" battery in mine you have to take the little plastic tray out and it fit fine. Hubby said the walmart batts are excide's brand.

  • I had the same problem i made them open boxes until they found the right one with the right was for a suzuki in there system

  • I bought my battery in 2008 from the Honda dealership. I paid $110 for it but it was fully charged so I could start riding as soon as it was put in. I could have gotten the exact same battery from them (without being charged) for about $30 less but I was itching to ride!!!

  • There's a write up on easy job to do . Take off the cam covers . Time that cylinder to tdc. Cable tie for extra safety. The undo old tensioner. The write up say there should be about 5mm of play in between the inlet and exhaust cam . I followed this and it worked well .
