    anyone with an early model 1100 Aero, know of a standard shape battery to replace the expensive and odd shaped stock model? Preferably smaller.

    • choice

    • These batteries are much smaller than the OEM so you will need to cut foam to fit around it. The packing foam that they ship with it should do the trick. If you are interested, the major players are Ballistic, Shorai, and a new one called AntiGravity Batteries. I thought that Ballistic had the best bang for the buck

    • I think I'll give it a shot as well........ For what I've spent in batteries I could bought the wife a bike........ Just don't tell her that......

    • hey Ken, did you get chrome replacements? Was thinking of ordering some from ebay and was hoping to get opinions of fit of these aftermarket units.

    • I might be interested in the covers for the right price.. just forward thinking if one of mine ends up missing etc. What are you thinking?

    • I put chrome covers on years ago. Recently came across the stock black ones in my messy garage and thought I would see if anyone was interested. My chrome covers are hondaline for another Shadow model. They fit perfect. The only negative is that on the battery side, about a half inch of the bottom of the battery shows below the bottom of the cover.

    • I've used pit bike exhausts on my posties before but I've had to cut the end down as they are too long and you may have to modify the rear mount or find something else to attache it too as they don't always line up with the rear shock.

    • That's the end that goes into the engine I mean, not the output end. Usually the length of the exhausts are too short overall.

    • Thanks that's what I was wondering, I can get a pit bike exhaust for about half the price of this one so I might go that way.

    • Apparently any pit bike exhaust with crf50 style mounts is an easy fit.

    • They sound way cool too!

    • where did u get the bags?

    • Leatherup.com had to relocate the turn signals but it was worth it

    • where did you get the turn signal relocation kit from?

    • well here's the deal, if you're handy with tools. It's a license plate light with the turn signals attached. It's from an old honda valkyrie. The same kind of set up that's on the 1100 Aero. I found it on ebay for $30 and took the stock one off my 750 made some adjustments to fit the holes in the frame then extended the wire from the harness near the battery and zip tied 'em along the inside of the fender. I had a saddlemen turn signal kit at first but this piece looks much cleaner. It looks stock. Look at the rear light assembly for a 1100 Aero. that's pretty much what it is.

    • Still ran like a top when I got rid of it, only had about 12xxx miles on it.

    • Not bad. Kawasaki makes a good bike. I had a Ninja that was pretty brutal and a Kawasaki Jet Ski that was impressive as well

    • Was a good bike for my 2nd 'first' bike. I had a '84 Ascot 500 for about a year about 15 years ago. Then hadn't ridden till I got the Vulc about 3 years ago. Loved it but was a little rough 2 up with the short wheelbase. Much more room on the Shadow.

    • Take the seat off by removing the strap that goes across. Take cover off battery compartment to gain access to cables. Pull battery straight up out of the bike.

    • What also helps is to get your one hand underneath the battery compartment and lift the battery from below. With your other hand, pull the battery out.

    • Thanks! A snug little compartment, but got it out! Needs to be in the house where its warmer!

    • Wow!!!!! 759.00 to ship to Maine a piece.

    • My 350x, a labor of love, cost so much time and effort that I am not certain I would part with it for under $10k. Yes, you read that right. That said, I also have some other bikes I would like to sell but when I find out how little I can get for them, I decide that it is not worth it. Whether that pair of bikes is worth $1900 is just a function of time and desire on someone else's part. Those are clearly nice bikes. If you don't need the money, I'd sit on them. It isn't like they are going to get less valuable now.

    • @ Michael yes I agree. I'll post my other gem. I did sell the 86 last year.

    Im asking everyone to send prayers our way for my biker wife For those of you...

    Im asking everyone to send prayers our way for my biker wife. For those of you that don't know, Marjorie McHale Parker has fought diabetes since she was 9 years old. She lost complete kidney function at 24. she has been thru 2 transplants, one that failed and one that lasted 12 years.She suffers from extreme high Blood Pressure. She is now on the transplant list again but they wont give her a transplant if they can't keep her well. She is now and has been on peritoneal dialysis for over a year now. She has put up one hell of a fight and keeps going in good spirit. I can't say if I was in that condition, I would be able to handle it. It means more to me than each and every one of you know when to ask how she is doing and send your prayers her way. I can't thank you enough... Thank You, Tim

    • I own one of each, 2001 Aero 1100 and 2008 HD Ultra, depends on my mood and the type of trip I am taking. I can tell you the Honda is my only choice in the heat of the summer with the liquid cooled engine, I see many of my HD brothers sitting on the side of the road waiting for their bikes to cool down.

    • You will spend a lot more time "wrenching" on the HD, they just require a lot more attention than the Shadow but still have many benefits and a lot more choices when it comes to accessories.

    hi everybody. I have a doubt and would like your help. I m putting chrome on — Honda Shadow Aero

    hi everybody ... I have a doubt and would like your help .. I'm putting chrome on

    my 1999 Shadow Aero 1100 C3, and I'm trying to look as classic as possible,

    and I have understood that various accessories were discontinued, however, I

    got almost all with a exception the (COBRA HUB COVER 05-5122), that is exclusive

    to Aero C3, and there is one for (C2 ACE, the 05-5130), so I'm thinking about buying one for ACE, and try to adjust it ... So, what do you think? can be DONE that?,

    if anyone knows what is the difference between the 05-5122 and 05-5130, and

    if it can be adjusted by any modification .. I appreciate the help.

    I really need that item, to achieve a classic view of the bike. and i will upload photos so you can see it, before and after.

    Oração do Motociclista: Pai Celestial, senhor de todos os caminhos! Faça com que a nossa vida sobre uma moto, seja ao mesmo tempo, emocionante e tranqüila; que o vento em nossos rostos nos desperte e o sol ilumine nossos caminhos! Que em nossas motos, sejamos sempre caroneiros de tua pilotagem segura, e que em nossos retrovisores possamos ver tudo o que já nos destes, para podermos acelerar confiantes rumo a um futuro melhor! Por tua bondade senhor, permita-nos entrar conscientes em todas as curvas, e que saibamos sempre, dosar a pressão nos manetes, seja em momentos de excitação ou de apreensão! Que tua luz seja o farol iluminando nosso percurso, o teu amor e compreensão, combustível para seguirmos adiante! Pai, conceda que debaixo do capacete, tenhamos lucidez para decisões rápidas e corretas, diante dos inevitáveis desníveis da pista! Lembra Senhor, dos companheiros que estão viajando em outras dimensões do teu infinito mundo, para que possam estar rodando felizes, em estradas onde um dia também andaremos! Por fim meu Deus, abençoa a todos que tem a coragem de enfrentar o desafio do equilíbrio em duas rodas, dando-lhes como retorno, o prazer de desfrutar a comunhão com a natureza e a liberdade que só a moto proporciona. Com a certeza de que, com tua graça, teremos sempre uma boa viagem! Amém!

That on our bikes, we are always caroneiros to your safe riding, and that in our view we can see everything that we have these, so that we can accelerate confident towards a better future! For thy goodness, o Lord, let us enter conscious in all curves, and that we always, dose pressure on levers, in moments of excitement or apprehension! That thy light to be the beacon lighting our way, thy love and understanding, fuel to move ahead! Father, grant that underneath the helmet, have quick and correct decisions to lucidity, before the inevitable gaps of track! Remember the Lord, of the companions who are traveling on other dimensions of thy infinite world, so that they can be running happily on roads where one day also will walk! Finally my God bless everyone who has the courage to face the challenge to balance on two wheels, giving them in return, the pleasure of enjoying the communion with nature and freedom that only the bike provides. With the confidence that, with your grace, we will always have a good trip! Amen!
