Some of my chrome covers are milky dull, does anyone know how I can get it to shine again?

10 comments
  • The chrome starts wearing off over time and becomes dull is what he's saying. Once that happens its just too late.

  • The Turtle Wax All Metal Polish really shines it up like it was new - it's not too late!!! Really does work :)

  • It's too late for mine to be saved.

My 03 spirit 750 Anyone know about changing the stock handle bars to the T... — Honda Shadow Spirit Ace Aero Riders

My 03 spirit 750!! Anyone know about changing the stock handle bars to the "T" bars or dragg bars with the risers already built on them? I'm 6' 1" and the stock ones are just to low and my shoulders hurt after a long ride! Thanks!

7 comments
  • i spun my risers 180. it pushed the bars out

  • I have the opposite problem.... I've got tendonidus and artheritus in my left shoulder, just rotated mine downward a bit hoping that will help. (Ok, I can't spell either). Been riding this most of this year with my left hand in my lap...Hurts to raise my arm, but hurts more not to ride.

  • Got the same bike Im 6ft. Original is good

Can an 84 V45 engine fit on an 82 v45 magna frame — Honda V45 and V65 owners (Sabre Magna)

Can an 84 V45 engine fit on an 82 v45 magna frame

12 comments
  • V65 is a mechanical speedo, but the gearing in the front hub is different from year to year regarding the speedo.

  • V65 sabre has an electronic speedo, that is part of the reason their complete guages are so damn expensive compared to a v65 magna

  • The ignition advance, carb jetting, and primary gear ratios between the VF700 and VF750 Magna models are different, so you would need to use those items from the year engine you use, but engine will bolt right in. The V45 Sabre is not as easy to convert, 1982 carbs and airbox are completely different config.

  • Agreed, years ago a friend had a Yamaha B-wizz with green U.V bar underneath the foot plates and was always getting stopped.

  • B-whizz is a called a Yamaha Zuma here.

  • His one was a real old model, he had it in 1998 and it was a few years old then.

Have a question. I have completely rebuilt my rebel. It now runs open exhaust an a open air K&N air filter. I can't find any jets for the carb so I am having trouble adjusting it I don't want to just drill the jets an wind up to large or to small an have to do it again any suggestions

  • This is the bike

  • Just put a shim on the needle... that's what I did with mine. Works a treat :)

  • A shim ? Please explain more if I hold the "byvalve" choke open it runs great so I am sure it needs more fuel but on a non-adjustable carb how

  • a shim is a small washer that will lift the needle and allow more gas through.

    This vid is for the 450 but the concept is the same for the 250...

Dad let me ride his VFR today, and to be honest I would be lying if I said it didn't scare me, 14,000rpm in 3 gears was enough, hit 100mph like nothing, the constant power and the raw speed bikes like this have is unbelievable. I'm hooked.

  • speed is addictive, but the important thing is it being fun at a speed that won't land you in jail. I've had a few big bikes, and most have only been fun at highly illegal speed. I just can't wait to be able to afford track days again.

  • Sure Mot don't check for emissions in bikes. I've never changed any of my bikes exhausts back to stock for MOT. And here in Northern Ireland our MOTs have to go through the government test centers which are more by the book

  • Right everyone just forget what I said then lol

  • generally speaking, cars made with a cat must keep their cats. In addition, they must also pass the emissions test for cats. Bikes are subject to neither of these rules that I'm aware of. I did have a flick through the official MOT manual the other day, and I don't recall anything about actual emissions tests for bike. A few cars fall into a grey area. Those made with cats but before cats became the law. These a supposed to retain their cats, but are tested as if they didn't have one. So if you remove it the car may still pass the emissions test, but the mot centre could still fail it for not having a cat. I did this twice and got away with it both times.

  • Karl - i run a 1998 standard storm on the track , and recently purchased a GSXR 1000 K1 . They are way different handling bikes ! The only upgrades i have done are - dropped the forks through the yokes by 10mm, Put a spacer in the rear shock to jack it up , which means it turns in quicker , race spec brake pads , and put metzler race tech tyres on it . Tyre pressures set at 30psi front and rear . There isnt much that will go round me at cadwell , silverstone or snetterton until i get onto the straights when i get blown away by newer bikes ... i just laugh as i pass them in the corners again lol

  • If you have dropped the forks by 5mm and put a 6mm spacer, which will lift the back by approx 20mm (not 100% sure of linkage ratio) it sounds to me you have way too much weight on the front and it will wash out. Get forks and shock serviced, NEVER use progressive springs for track use, needs to be linear load rate. Spend the rest of your money on tyres and track time. The cheapest go-faster is practice and track time.

  • Sounds like you need to sell your storm and get a gixer,, could be a number of things, get to someone and get your suspension set up properly, what tyres are you running? I ride my storm low and fast on the twistys and never had it even twitch on the front end, maybe a fork service at the minimum might make some difference

For Sale Arai Tour X3 (large) Helmet for sale:- A nice condition helmet. All removable inserts removed, freshly laundered and refitted so interior of helmet is fresh and clean. Exterior has also been cleaned and polished. There is the odd minor mark consummate with a used item but never crashed and these are not picked up by the camera. 5 x adjustable air vents. Benifits from additional dark pin-lock visor insert which stops fogging of visor and helps with sun glare. Double D Ring chin strap. Overall a nice bright clean used helmet which I am selling due to lack of use. Comes with Arai cloth storage bag and a Go-Pro Camera Mount (this can easily be removed if you prefer) These are online anywhere from £240 to £360:00 so grab yourself a bargain here on FB CTF before I pop it on eBay. I'd like £125:00 plus £15:00 p&p costs so total of £140:00. Please PM me if interested.

Many thanks ;-)

  • wonderful helment the tour X4

    is it noisy?

  • Hi Daniele Nenna, in actual fact I find that it's a cosy quiet helmet, have had cheap helmets and expensive ones and to be honest you get what you pay for and Arai are nearer the top end of the market where fit, finish and quality are measured than many others available ;-)

  • Ok thanks for you review! I had Arai for 5years and it's excellent ! But maybe next time I'll test SHOEI ones, it seems to be even more reliable and more quality in particular for plastic parts! We'll see :)

How many of you stormers have ever adjusted the rebound damping — Honda VTR 1000 Firestorm owners

How many of you stormers have ever adjusted the rebound damping ?

10 comments
  • I always set my bikes up one up or two. Front &rear suspension well planted in any corner. Keep on storming.

  • Take youre tools and go riding. You can make changes and try it on the same route. My way of adjusting

  • I'm in the middle of reading the Race tech bible on suspension. Very interesting especially about what you can actually adjust on a stock shock. For instance the rebound adjuster on both front and rear only affects low velocity movement. If the shock needs to travel fast it can pop the relief and do so at a faster rate. It seems that Race tech believe most people have too much rebound set and this can cause loss of traction.

  • Simple... Take your original top engine bolt, grab a drill bit same size, drill engine,. Hang engine in frame from top, make 2 flat bent metal parts to attach lower peg mounts to original bottom engine mount on frame.. I can take pics tomorrow. You can buy kits that do it. I paid $6 for a flat stock of 1" - 1/4? Bout 4' long.. Made engine mounts out of it, & muffler hanger.
