  • South Florida here. The coldest is might get in the Palm Beach area is down in the 40s or 30s late at night. So I get to ride all year long. Especially looking to riding once in gets colder here (still in the 70s and 80s right now), since it's been such a warm summer and fall.

  • Snow very rare here, unless you want to go to the mountains.

  • we can get up to 2feet of snow at once it makes it hard to get the bike through that and it get down to -20 degrees c with wind and colder you have fun but here its not even possible even though there are days here and there in the winter when the roads are good enough

Need some advice team! Woman pulled out into my path from a cross street and, to avoid hitting her, I swerved and crashed. It wasn't a big crash, but my legs got mangled up a bit and the bike is damaged. We exchanged details (except for her insurance details) and all was cool... but NOW she says that she won't give me her insurance details... cops won't get involved and I only have 3rd party insurance (so my insurance guys won't help either!)

What do I do? Just want her to fix my bike!

  • It's black and white my friend. Because you did not connect with her as in hit her, then she is not involved, you might as well have had a solo accident cause you did. Without any marks on her car to show she was there/involved then she wasn't "in the eyes of the law" and your good intentions are going to kick you in your own ass. Then people start saying, you should have been going at a speed were you could stop safely and bla bla bla. Bottom line is, you have to connect with them to involve them to blame them. it happens every day my friend.

  • U could learn how to stay upright, ya meathead

    I've got a fuel leak where the petcock goes to the tank. I've replaced the o-ring and inspected everything and I can't seem to figure out why it's leaking. The leak is a slow drip, probably a drop every 2-3 seconds. If anyone could help me out with a solution that doesn't require me to pay $56 for a new petcock, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!

    • replace it.

    • what year?? check with your dealer, some years were recalled for the petcock - may get it fixed free.

    • I'd start with calling the dealer.. have the vin # handy, they should be able to look it up.

    Just putting a feeler out there.... This may be going on the auction block next week. Only things wrong with it are: piece of cooling fin that holds one of the exhaust bolts broke off. Does not effect a thing, but I do have a spare head, and B/N OEM studs. Or, if you can weld aluminum, it's a 10 minute fix. Also, I do not have the original tank. I have the 3 gal. IMS (shown), and a Maier tank, both like new. I have ALL of the original parts, except for the tank. I also have a boatload of extra parts including 2 exhausts, a head, new carrier bearing in plastic, new timing chain, grab bar, and a pile of OEM hardware, and fittings. New chain, sprockets, wheels, tires, along with the originalwheels, and tires. (Original tires have 40 - 50% tread). This trike is a true 8 out of 10. I paid $2760 for it, plus I have $2000 worth of new, and extra parts that will keep this thing running for another 26 years. She is a POWERHOUSE! Whatta ya think?

    Hi all......I am interested on hardbags, and I like the Tourer, and how it fits on 98 Shadow ACE, But I have a 99 Aero VT1100 C3, My doubt is if they fits on my bike? and if anyone knows websites that sells it??

    %d comments
    • You can buy the bags and brackets for an ACE tourer and mount them on a aero. I too have a 99 aero and looked at this. The cost is astronomical though. National Cycle makes a pair of hard bags for an aero, cost is around 800.00. And you can paint them to match. This is the option I am going with for mine. The 1100 ACE and the 98-02 Aero share the same frame and engine.

    • They have some nice hardbags on ebay for around $500

    Hey, we're looking at getting some sort of a GPS/nav system for one of our bikes, now that the wife is riding, too, and we'll be going on longer rides.

    So I don't know if anyone is familiar with this, but there's an activity called geocaching (look up that is like a worldwide scavenger hunt by participants in the sport, and you use a GPS system to locate the exact lat/long coordinates of these hidden items, usually sign a piece of paper to say you were there, on a log, or exchange a small prize in a watertight tube with another little trinket.

    So my wife and I want to get involved with this geocaching, and need like a handheld GPS to do so, but also want a TomTom or Garmin to travel on the bike with.

    Do the automotive nav systems also contain latitude/longitude coordinate GPS features in addition to the driving directional systems??

    Hey all a question here about RPM speed — Honda Shadow Aero

    Hey all, a question here about RPM speed:

    I recently got a really cheap RPM gauge, since the bike/s don't have a Tach, and wrapped the wire a couple times around one of the sparkplug wires to get a reading, so I can adjust my idle cable for an accurate speed.

    Well it was down around 1000-1100 RPM, but my manual says 1200 plus or minus a hundred. Now I thought maybe that was high, so I looked at my car with automatic transmission and it idles around 900ish to 1000.

    So is 1200 really as high as the moto needs to be??

    Also, as long as the engine isn't dying or struggling in idle, what's the harm in leaving it a little lower? (I know there IS harm, but enlighten me). Too high and you're unnecessarily using more gas and overrunning your engine, but what are the problems with too low? And does too low at idle ALSO affect engine performance at speed??

    As always, thanks for your input. I'm relatively new, and wish I had the experience to be able to listen and tell EXACTLY what my engine needs. But I hope I'm learning. :)

    %d comments
    • hmmmm. Bad idea Honda had leaving that important device off the bike.

    • Idle to low, and you run hotter in the combustion chamber. The mixture is to lean and will cause damage eventually. Cars can run s lower rpm because they have more mass to keep themselves running, but they also have mass air flow sensors, o2 sensors, speed density formulation, and fuel injection. Computers calculate how much fuel is needed based on air flowing Into the engine. Setting your curb idle to low can have drastic effects on performance. You may see gains, but that is generally due to a lean fuel mixture, which will melt ring lands, piston rings etc. I learned this the hard way years ago, before I started wrenching for a living. Had a v-8 Chevy truck that got 24 mpg CITY ........for three months.......that is how long it took to melt the ring lands on 3 pistons, all because I wanted a lower idle and more response off the line. My advise.......if it ain't broke, don't alter it.......

    • And isn't always better....... A cheap tach may not be calibrated to the degree a quality built tach is. I can buy a half inch drive ratchet from Sears for $30.00 or spend $140.00 and get one from Snap-on tools. They both do the same task, but the latter has much higher quality, and therefore will be the better deal over the life of the tool. I am a cheapskate in some areas.......but neither my tools nor my transportation fall into that category. One reason why I have over 300k on one Honda, and 220k on another........... Just sayin....

    • Some people want that factory look. Some people want that modded look. But what I want, is a factory look with aftermarket performance. Like a good quality color scheme, (Ross your scheme is great, the seat really pulls it together.), but with wider rear end, and flatter tires. You know, better performance with a genuine look.

    • I hear ya. The seat is a hi flight. I had a good seat pan but the foam and cover were trashed. They have a ton of colors and styles to choose from. I agree with you guys on the exhaust too. It had a supertrapp on it but it was busted up. I figured id give the dg exhaust a try. Its ok but looking back, wished i would have gone with supertrap

    • I'd like to get a supertrap on mine someday instead of the stock one i got. Something rattles inside my muffler when its running. Drives me nuts!

          • did ever happened that rear chain tentioner pops?

          • When mine did go, it took out all my valves as bent to fook! I got a replacement head almost new incl valves for £90 as used as my source for national breakers etc and my Dave did all the work and made the stopper mod for pennies...The rear ones rarely go as they have more oil to them etc..We did this stopper mod for a mate in Jan who had just bought his VTR and only had 15k on clock, you can never tell when it wil lgo but mine sounded like a bag of spanners going round in the washer..Pulled over and restarted...nothing ,click click fooked!! Better safe than sorry I say!

          • Dave made ours cost pennies really to make the stopper mods and end of issues full stop, you'd never know even if the spring did go! Luckily for me, Dave knew whht he was doing and did all the work himself on my bike (in the kitchen!!) so when I paid £90 for an almost new head incl all valves, quids in! thank god! So, he did his stopper mod for his bike right after mine,just in case. A mate who lives in Lower Gornley has a mate who had just bought a VTR,so when we were down there last Jan, we did his bike too,just in case! So Trevor, if you're reading this, I still have the single malt as Dave don't drink it!

          CCT. Cam Chain Tensioner. Fail Safe Mod. aka Stopper Mod — Honda VTR 1000 Firestorm owners

          CCT (Cam Chain Tensioner) Fail Safe Mod. (aka Stopper Mod)

          (1) Set-up the valve timing on the engine. The cylinder you're working on needs to be on the compression stroke at TDC aligning all timing marks just the same as if you were replacing the CCT's. See this link for setting the valve timing:- viewtopic.php?f=31&t=8326

          (2) I made up a copy of the Honda locking key, details from the Haynes workshop manual. Using the key turn the worm in the rear CCT clockwise 1/4 of a turn and lock off, then remove CCT. On the front CCT turn the worm clockwise 1/2 a turn and lock off, then remove the CCT.

          (The difference of 1/4 turn for the rear and 1/2 a turn for the front CCT is due to the fact that one CCT tightens up and the other slackens off when in use. So basically I've allowed 1/4 of a turn free play, allowing for expanding/shrinking of the different metals etc as they get hot when in use.)

          (3) Next I removed the plunger pin so you can remove the plunger head see diagram below.

          (4) You then need to work out what length rod you need to fill space 'A' see diagram. I used a piece of aluminium rod only a fraction smaller than the inside diameter of the plunger itself.

          (5) Once you have the correct length rod you can then put it all back together.

            • am going by that website, so will be looking for a r1 replacement so, am away and wont be back till weekend so should have parts sussed by then hopefully

            • cool cool. ;)

            • NOTE:-

              If you do decide to follow my instruction's you do so at your own risk!

              As far as I can be sure you won't have any problems if you follow them correctly, but I can't be held responsible if something did go wrong as I'm sure you'll appreciate!

              The problem with not removing the cam covers (well one cover anyway) is you may be at TDC but not on the compression stroke, in which case the cam chain will jump over the cam sprockets and you will then have a lot bigger job on, than just changing the CCT's, as you will have to re-set the valve timing!

              The following imo is the quickest and safest way I've found to replace the CCT's

              (1) Remove seat.

              (2) Disconnect block connector on end of wiring from fuel tank (located under-seat in front of battery box).

              (3) Unbolt fuel tank, turn fuel tap off with 8mm open end spanner and disconnect all hoses noting where each one goes first (use masking tape and write on it if you won't remember) then lift off tank (easier to do when tank is nearly empty).

              (4) Remove air filter box lid and air filter, then remove the two air intake trumpets, (noting where each one goes as they are different lengths) cover the intake holes of each carb with a clean rag so nothing can fall in there, next remove the screws holding the air box to the carbs and disconnect the breather hoses then remove the air box itself.

              (5) Remove the spark plugs and cover holes with clean rags

              (6) Remove the two caps from the alternator housing (left-hand side of bike when sitting on it) be very careful removing the center one as it's made of very soft material.

              (7) Using a socket and tee bar in the center hole of the alternator cover turn the engine over (anti-clockwise) until the timing mark 'RT' lines up with the mark on the alternator cover which can be seen in the 2nd hole of the alternator cover.

              (8 ) Remove the rear cam cover (it's much easier than the front one) also note models with the pair system will have a metal locating dowel between cylinder head and cam cover, not applicable on UK models.

              (9) Now looking at the camshafts, the lobes should be facing to-wards each other, if not turn the engine over one full turn (360 degrees) until the 'RT' mark is re-aligned, they should now be facing to-wards each other and the marks RI and RE on the camshaft sprockets should be level with the top part of the cylinder head and will be facing away from each other, you are now ready to remove the rear CCT.

              (10) Unscrew the small bolt in the end of the rear CCT and remove it along with the alloy sealing washer. Next turn the screw head inside the CCT clockwise two full turns, lock it off in position using a locking key. The Haynes Workshop Manual shows you how to make a simple locking key. Tape the key in place once you've locked the tensioner off, as you don't want the key jumping out. Next undo and remove the CCT. If you are using this guide to fit manual CCT's you can lock the tensioner in position without retracting it first (using a locking key), to give you a measurement that can be transfer to the manual CCT before fitting it.

              (11) Clean off mating surfaces, fit new gasket and new CCT, (they come already retracted) once fully tightened up you can release the CCT plunger making sure it unwinds slowly until full tension is released, then remove tensioning tool and re-fit sealing washer and bolt, then re-fit cam cover. REMEMBER TO TAKE THE METAL CAPS OFF THE OLD CCT PLUNGER HEADS AND FIT ONTO THE NEW ONES, AS THE NEW ONES ARE NOT SUPPLIED WITH THEM!!!!!!.

              (12) Now turn the engine over anti-clockwise 450 degrees (one and a quarter turns) until the 'FT' mark lines up with the mark on the alternator cover, you are now ready to remove the front CCT using the same procedure as the rear, without the need to remove the front cam cover.

              (13) Re-fit everything else in the reverse order of removal, I use a little thread lock on the screws that hold the base of the air box to the carbs.

              Once you have finished re-fitting the CCT's, before putting it all back together turn over the engine 3 or 4 complete turns using the socket and tee bar (anti-clockwise) just to make sure everything is turning freely before you start the engine!

              I hope that info is helpful to you!


              (A) I think it best if you try to see if you can undo the center cap in the alternator cover first before starting to strip the rest (remembering what I said about them being of a soft metal).

              (B) Make sure you only turn the engine over by hand ANTI-CLOCKWISE otherwise you will be putting extra load onto the CCT's which you really want to avoid.

              (C) Also don't forget to turn the fuel tap back on when re-fitting the tank! The later 19ltr fuel tank models don't have a manual fuel tap.

              Hope this helps, but yeah, I've emailed it to you alex ;-)

            • means in run in period you can mold your bike's performance..if u'll open throttle of your bike few times(though not very much), your bike will perform gud but mebbe u'll get lesser mileage in later period but if you won't open its throttle much in run in period then it'll return you better mileage figures but it won't perform like in first case..its like you have to mold your bike's engine like the way u want in run in period..extract better performance or mileage from it..its in your hand..

            • i will go fr better prfrmnce rather dan better mileage.... coz, prfrmnce matters yen u r on road & yen u r infrnt of hot & sexy gals.... :) :P Ankur Chopra

            • oh xl? sorry i ment what you said.. hows the wirring on it? im pretty sure the xl600 is pretty much the same..

            • I heard that a motorcycle motor isnt balanced as good as a 3 wheeler and will crack the frame

            • well it dosnt have the counter balancer installed in it but look at it this way, if the xl600 motor didnt crack the xl600 frame then why would it make a difference since im using the xl frame? the only thing i have to change is im making the sub frame but i know how to weld so that should hold up good to and im probably going to gusset most if not all of it

            • These were commissioned by Honda, for none other than the temporary office site above what is now Honda Aero Inc in Burlington NC. The six signs were to be destroyed when the offices moved into the new plant. But, as luck would have it, I ended up with 4, and the other 2 adorn someone else's wall in NC. I wonder if I could get away with putting one up at the engine plant in Anna............. hmmm

            REMINDER: I know at least 98% of you already know this, but for the 2% that don't, I hope to save a lot of money and a trip to the mechanic shop next riding season. It's turning cold, and those that aren't blessed with year round riding weather are fixing to get that last ride in before parking it for the winter. Winterize Your Ride!!!! This is very important for a great start of the next riding season. This should include things like adding a proper amount of fuel stabilizer to the tank, run it enough to get thru the carbs, drain the fuel out of the carbs, fog the engine, Changing the oil and filter,(then changing the oil next spring never hurts) disconnect the battery, ect. Check with your local dealer or manufacture for the proper winterizing procedure for your bike. A little Preventative Maintenance this time of year saves money and less down time next season... Just a friendly tip, Ride safe everyone.
