A couple of people asked me what I used to bring my bike down on Sunday, well it was this. A Honda SM-X minivan. Just take the rear bench seat out and you can just squeeze the MSX in.

  • :-)

  • I've disconnected mine.

  • it's fine until the you a) forget the kick stand or b) the spring goes and it falls down on its own. Then you get thrown off at next corner. I bypassed mine once, but only because the switch fell off on the way home once. It was bypass it or push it! :)

Trying to find a replacement tank for the 1986 450 Honda Rebel I am restoring — Honda Rebel Riders

Trying to find a replacement tank for the 1986 450 Honda Rebel I am restoring. Anyone have any ideas where I can find one in good condition?

%d comments
  • You could also try but don't hold your breath. A good condition tank can fetch up to $500....

    There is a company that sells ones for 250's on Ebay, the tunnel has to be widened a bit to fit on the 450 backbone but people have done it.

    Or, as a last resort, taking the old tank to a metalworking place and get them to copy it (could be expensive!)

  • I have an 87 and bought my tank on eBay

  • Ha.. in your dreams...

I love my Shadow but it has a lousy seat...very uncomfortable. I had more padding put into it and that has helped a little. I would like too buy a new Mustang seat but they are too expensive. Does anyone have a suggestion?

%d comments
  • Be sure to get a mustang that can double as a solo.

  • Thanks for all the advice.

  • It is expensive but one of the best investments you can make in your own comfort.

This is my 2004 Honda Shadow Spirit VT1100C that I purchased a few days ago for $500. Installed a new battery and it runs and rides great.

  • I knew the problem would be in those switch clam shells. Mine only had to be cleaned with contact cleaner and no more problems with the light

  • Try seafoam, should clean the varnished carbs...

  • Wow.... you stole that !!!! good for you :)

  • Looks aside, a 'storm is a 'storm! The ride, power & eagerness to go ballistic at will is why I will never own anything else. I adore my 'storm & genuinely couldn't give a golden rats ass if noone likes mine either. I love her!

%d comments
  • Once I get better at 1st gear wheelies I want to do second gear bump ups from the rear pegs, I assume they will be more stable with more speed.

  • Can always put a 14 tooth front sprocket on and will give a taller first gear.

  • Will make the speedo a bit inaccurate though.

Anyone know if I can change the colour of the background light on the dashboard — Honda MSX125 Owners Forum

Anyone know if I can change the colour of the background light on the dashboard? If it's just a bulb or something else? The bike I ride at work is a CB500F and the clock is pretty much identical but the background light is blue, if it's case of swapping the bulb then I'm gonna try that.

I'm wondering if anyone can help me? I have a 98 aero and the problem is when it's been on the road it starts to bog down on me. I replaced the battery to a sealed one two years ago. It's not taking a charge, all fuses are good. If the battery dies will it stay running or is the alternator no good or the fuel pump bad? There's only 6k on it.

  • Check your voltage regulator.

Coupe of photos from today's monkey run, was fantastic and great to meet everyone, really enjoyed it. 14 MSX'ers and a ton of money bikes resulted in a great rip round all the sights in London, never had so many people cheer and take photos, the 3rd photo of all the bikes together was all the bikes that went on the run so numbers were very big! We all sounded like 6 hours of rolling thunder! (Sorry for everyone that was behind me, didn't realise how loud it was until Luke Mcleod moaned on the way home

  • I will be doing when I save up for one

My husband is on call this weekend so we haven t been able to go for a ride — Honda Shadow Spirit Ace Aero Riders

My husband is on call this weekend, so we haven't been able to go for a ride. :-( Today the weather was just too nice to stay inside. I washed and waxed both bikes, and cleaned the leather. Next weekend I'll probably get the chrome polish out for finishing touches. They haven't been broken down and CLEANED since last year... boy were they dirty! That's what happens when you spend more time riding than cleaning, I guess. LOL

    • and what are the results of bad flashing?

    • Tom understand that the volatiles (VOCs) WILL "flash off". If you don't allow this to happen, remember the volatiles WILL flash off, and not thru the surface they are applied to. Be patient and be attentive to what you are working on.

    • Flash times are critical for adhesion, gloss and dirt control. If you walk away for an hr lunch between coats when the flash time is 15 mins you are allowing more time for dust and more likely you will have adhession problems like blistering clearcoat down the road. Hope this helps..

      Pro s and con s the DCT — Honda CrossTourer Forum Forum


      Pro's and con's the DCT?

      %d comments
      • The only con I can imagine is the price tag when you buy the bike new. But, if I look at my dealership`s figures, the DCT is the most popular version. Out of 10 CT`s he sells, 7 are DCT. Those figures are even higher when you look at the NC700-750 figures, DCT is becoming popular really fast.

      • 100% pro. I've had a NC700X dct and fell in love with this system. Always the right gear, easy to use, and safe in usage. The combination with the 700cc was already good, the 1200 V4 is even better. Never want anything else.. Con? What J-P says.. the price.

      • Agree with both of the above. The extra price tag can be out weighed by the ultra smooth gear changes that the DCT gives you,and without any fear of a low speed stall allowing the balance of the bike to become unsettled. Along with the fact that for a pillion rider the DCT makes for a very smooth ride for them.
