Anyone know of any swap meet type stuff happening? We just got an 06 750, and are trying to find affordable stuff to add for comfort and so on. I would love to have more foot placement options. The stock pegs are a bit misplaced for long rides in my opinion. What are some of the different things you folks have done for that?

  • Maybe a ragtop too for those rainy days ...

  • HahahahahaHonda!

  • Long rides? Is that about comfort? I've ridden many different bikes... And the little bit of discomfort I may experience just reminds me I'm riding a motorcycle. Giddy up!

  • i have a 02 1100 spirit and i will tell you they take getting used to. they are not a in town bike. alot of the time i run second and if im on the highway 65 or under i use fourth gear. i never believed my buddy who has a 04 that it lugged the engine that bad till i owned one. power wise i can keep up with most bikes that are considerably bigger. on ethanol i get in the 45mpg range and took on a 2200 mile trip where ethanol wasnt a option and i pulled consistent 52-54 in fourth gear while my buddy pulled 54-56 in fifth going 62mph or so.

can anyone please tell me where i can get michelin 100/90 18 rear tyre for my zmr around cochin,kollam... is it a good option ????? does it affect the mileage ?????

%d comments
  • I'm using this tyre. Don't go for it, grip is very bad on wet road. Meanwhile grip on normal dry road is very good! Mileage not affected, but you have to maintain correct tyre pressure.

  • ^^it has great grip on wet or dry both kind of roads..its a multipurpose tyre which you can use while doing off-roading as well

  • In fact, the Wet Grip of these Michelins are so bad, I'm going for either stock Zappers if I get them in 110/80/18 or Dunlops110/80/18(CBZ Tyre)

May be parting ways with the saddlebags on the bike. They are XL universal that are held down by the jump seat. Have the chrome stands that hold them out of the fender. Stands are for an 1100. Planning on getting color matched hard bags and going with the look of the VT1100ct. Dual exhaust, bags, trunk etc.

%d comments
  • They do.... And they get into the rear brake rotor too. That's why I bought the stands. Keeps everything where it should be.

  • Well that's what I thought

  • I had mine out this morning too........on the other side of the highway from Perkins. Sat at the store all day.

Hi all I have a problem with my storm and was wondering if any of you can help — Honda VTR 1000 Firestorm owners

Hi all, I have a problem with my storm and was wondering if any of you can help. The bike was running fine but now seems to hold back at around 6000 rpm I've changed the oil and filter, plugs and cleaned the k&n air filter. I put art pro cans on and that made it worse so am running standard again at the moment. Checked all the wires and coils. Any ideas ?

%d comments
  • cool, i have never actually looked

  • worth checking all your wires are tight. there one sat on the front of the right side rad for fan. and also check the wire is on properly on the fan switch.

    i was surprized when i seen it myself. my fan never kicked in. cos mine been sat for 4 years before i got it. :(.

  • i have spoke to other peope down hear that own storms and they also say how they run hot in traffic and stuff. no a few ladds that put computer fans on the other radiator for extra cooling.

My 05 shadow when I fill it up it will slowly bleed down and I can put more fuel in it. I can get about 3 gallons in it. Does anyone else experience. This and what is the fuel capacity.

%d comments
  • anytime!! Its a common issue, I just deal with it. Have u noticed your speedometer is 10% off? 50 MPh...your really doing 45

  • Believe it or not.....all Honda vehicles are like that. My accord is 5 off, my Odyssey is 5 off and my aero is 4 off. We've had every iteration of Accord and Odyssey since 88 and 96 and every one was like that too. I have to wonder if its a safety measure Honda has built in to help ease traffic tickets........

  • I have not noticed that but will be checking that out

Loss of fuel MPG. My 2009 Shadow 750 aero always got about 150 miles before having to switch to reserve on this last trip I took to MO about 2 thousand miles it is now down to about 126 miles before reserve at first I thought it was the weight of pack and interstate speeds, wind etc but after getting home mileage still hasnt came up. I was told to replace fuel filter and check plugs. Total miles now are around 9800

  • Well ethanol is a big problem and I see it every day at my shop, is it my problem not sure. My bike backfires all the time . I scared a lady on main street half to death last night driving by. It always when throttle is released though

  • I put over 30,000 miles on my 2006 Aero-the only change in mileage was when I added a Hypercharger- theres some blue liquid that equalizes the Ethanol in the gas-I cant remember the name, but try changing filling stations and see-also check your idle and yes, plugs make a difference!

  • I top off between 100-110 to be sure-

    Started my 06 aero today, and I noticed a small amount of gas leaking out from the middle hose behind the kick stand... Is this normal? Possibly small amount of oil in it... Size of 2 quarters

    %d comments
    • The tank was about 10 miles shy of reserve... I was told that sudden change in temperature on an almost empty tank will create a fumes pressure that will push the gas out...I took it from the garage after sitting 2 weeks into 85 degree sun. Any ideas?

    • one of the hoses is carb air vent, middle says fuel tank breather (except california type), third is rad reserve tank breather. I will try to upload pic to group pics.

    • I get gas leaks in my 86 Honda Shadow-usually a couple of taps with a rubber mallet is all it needs-
