• Got a friend who said he ll paint the tank side covers and fenders for me in... — Honda Shadow Aero

    Got a friend who said he'll paint the tank, side covers and fenders for me in Cadillac Pearl White so it's pretty much a match to the original color. (Owns an auto body shop and specializes in custom work but he's slowly shutting the place down to enjoy his retirement.) I haven't stripped a bike down in over 30 years. Tank doesn't look too awful hard, front fender and side panels are easy but the rear fender looks like it might be a bit difficult. Any advice before I end up with a bike I can't put back together myself? I don't have a garage or carport so I'll have to ride it to his place and then start stripping parts off.

    • Tips: 1.you may or may not have to take the front wheel off to remove the front fender. Some people have small enough hands to drop the bracket and slide it out from the back. 2. Run the tank dry before removal and be gentle, there's two vacuum hoses attached to the tank on left and right. When you reinstall the tank, snug the rubber stoppers in tight 3. After paint, have a buddy help with the rear fender to avoid scratches. One holding the fender one bolting it on. Good luck man, I'm sure youll be fine!

    • Thanks for the tips! Wish I could roll it inside but I live in a townhouse built in the late 70's and the entry is too narrow. I've tried when hurricanes are blowing in! Gilbert - I definitely will run the tank as dry as I can & then we'll "dry" the tank so its safe in the paint booth. Starting to think I may take it to my mechanic and have work done while the paint gets done. Time for a valve adjustment and probably could stand to have some hoses and cables replaced. It sits outside 24/7 and I live on the coast in Central Florida where its a very corrosive atmosphere. Really wish I had someplace I could get setup to work on it myself but can't afford to move AND keep the bike.

    Is there a maximum weight the postie should carry? I'm loaded to the hilt and Mo seems to have no problems no matter what I throw at him.

    • its 120/130 from memory legally.

    • Is that weight including the rider?

      John, I like those red panniers - what did you make them from?

    • 130kg max rider with 25kg on the rack, but auspost likes their riders around 90kgs i believe.

    • Thanks - I weighed some stuff at the Post Office today and I reckon I'm carrying close to 22kgs. But I'm not disclosing what I weigh ;-)

    • The max weight is not determined by if it pulls away from the lights or if it gets up a 30 degree gradient. It's when things go pear shaped that the weight counts.

    Hey fellows, what oil do you use in your CT110? Find anything works better than anything else?

    • the cheap oil is on sale atm at supercheap, 2x4litre bottles for $20. as mentioned before i've never had a problem.

    • I've been told from a motorcycle mechanic that the CT's are supposed to run mineral oil instead of synthetic oils, something to do with the friction modifiers but bot really sure what a mineral oil even is.

    • basiclly it doesn't really matter if its synthetic or mineral, just as long as it doesn't have the friction modifiers in it which effect clutch operation. once you have used synthetic oil it is usually recommended not to go back to mineral oil because mixing the two can cause it to react together and cause a major sludge in the bottom of your motor.

    So today I ve fitted a new Arrow Carbon Aluminium end can — Honda CrossTourer Forum Forum

    So today I've fitted a new " Arrow" Carbon/Aluminium end can.

    Positives are a nice sound, looks great, light weight and easy to fit.

    Negatives are no extra long bolt supplied to allow the fitting of the actual end can to rear mount (had to raid my tool box for suitable nut and bolt), very loud without baffles so they are staying in, but the worst of all is that the OE centre stand has had to come off. With it on the link pipe is rubbing on it.

    Not too worried about that final point as I rarely use the stand but thought others might want to know before parting with £300:00 for similar system.

    So Im happy with it overall and saved about 10kgs in weight with loosing the old exhaust and centre stand ;-)

    • Hey Russ Quinlan, looks like you got your main centre stand still fitted. Mine clearly wouldn't work with the arrow system installed. How'd you make that all work out then?

    • had to get a local bike shop to weld a little bracket to the exhaust for the stand to fit up to when riding but as you can see from this photo, its mighty close to the road and ground down a few times so Im contemplating removing it !

    • Yes looks a bit low there but that is a sharp corner with camber and looks like your leaning into it a bit. I suppose if it's grounding too often normal roads and you don't really use it then get shot of it :-/

    How many of you have refilled the cans or thought about doing it? I uploaded some info for those who want to do it. Most riders don't think about it, but if you have absorption cans it is a must to check and refill, especially on big twins due to the heat !

    You can easily check the cans content, if you knock on it and the material is gone it will sound different (hollow) compared to a filled one (solid sound). Carbon cans can damage easily if the packing is gone, the heat of a big twin engine can cause cracks in the carbon.

    • So true Jason Morrison! And it wasn't this morning but yesterday evening ;-)

    • Running Jardine RT1 cans and I do them every year,my bike likes it!!

    • If you run carbon cans they should be done often .

    Attention TASSIE postie owners — Honda CT110 Postie. Bike Forum

    Attention TASSIE postie owners!

    I have sold my ride, and now have a couple of engine spares getting around. I'm moving house early Jan and anything still here will be chucked in the bin. If you want this stuff for nix let me know and I'll organise a time for you to get it. Cannot really deliver sorry

    I've got a engine, I rebuilt it but must have misread the rebuild manual and missed a shim in the gear box. First test ride had the engine locked up and wouldn't move. No clunks, bangs or anything like that just stalled and the back wheel wouldn't move. I assume two gears shifted and interlocked. May need replacement parts but from what I've been told it should be good. Had about 29000 on the clock when this happened.

    Also have carby and exhaust.

    Take the engine and you'll get the Clymer manual that gives you the rundown on rebuilding.

    If this stuff is still here at new years I'll bin it and sell the manual here

    looking into getting a bigger bike. any comments on the vtx1300 vrs. the 1800. thanks

    • I liked the 1300 VTX & yes it does sit low, good for riders like myself 5'4 lol, no matter what motorcycle you ride you learn to be a custom to it ~ learn your bike ~

    • We looked at a 1300 for my wife's first bike. She tried my aero, but could barely touch. (She's 5-1). The 1300 was perfect height for her. The only thing I didn't like about the 1800 was the handlebars. Seemed closer together than my aero. That's why we opted for the GL1800 Gold Wing.

    • Funny you should ask. I love my Aero 1100, but was also longing for a little more power and picked up a 2003 VTX 1800R this fall. I managed to put about 400 miles on it before the snow started flying and really love the bike. The comments that others have made are pretty spot-on. She is definitely heavier than the Aero, but that really didn’t take any time to adapt to. The throttle response will absolutely get your attention. Again, that was no problem to get used to, but it is noticeably different from the Aero. If you are looking for a major improvement over your VT1100, I don’t think you will be pleased with the VTX1300, at least not in the stock form. There is a huge assortment of aftermarket performance parts & accessories for the 1300 and many of the used 1300’s out there have already had some extensive mods that help squeeze quite a bit more HP and performance out of the 1300 engine. But overall, I think you will be happier with the 1800. The “R” model has a retro look similar to our Aeros.

    Evening gents, yet more trouble with my devil Sabre Trike!!! She's starts up and runs fine when cold, the hotter it gets the worse it runs. When you rev it she'll stick at about 3000rpm and slowly comes down and sometimes sticks there tried to adjust idle but it's all or nothing and it won't idle. I've had the carbs of twice now, cleaned out jets, removed, cleaned, checked floats and reset, reset mixture screws, bench set butterfly's, I've checked everything on the carbs basically and all is ok on the carb side. The only thing I'm thinking now unless I'm missing something is, coils, igniters or pet cock valve, could these be at fault?I have spare ones of these I'm going to try on tomorrow. If anyone could shed any light on this it would be great as it is doing my head in!!! Any help would be great. Thank you

    • Sounds like the choke is on or partially on.

    • You may have a choke/enrichening plunger thats sticking open,,,,,,if so you should be having some black smoke out the exhaust,,,,,,it could be as simple as re adjusting your choke cable or you may have to check each plunger,,,,,,,it could also be the coils,,,,,if you have a spark tester check to see how strong the spark is after it dies,,,,,,,,,

    • Not returning to idle and sticking at 3000 rpm indicates a vacuum leak at intake. The most common area for this is the rubber carb boots. A way to check that is this; start the bike up. Take a propane torch and turn it on but don't light it. Hold the torch around the carb boots. If the rpm increases, thats where the vacuum leak is. Instead if a torch you can also use starter fluid. Good luck.

It has 21k miles on it but I don't have history to back it up plus it shows on log book that it was imported in 2008. It may be worth making this bike in to what i want for me and I'll sell my orange bike next year instead. Decisions decisions....
