    Don't know if you can help me. I have a 99 shadow vlx 600. I am replacing my fork seals due to leakage. I have the top bolt off, the oil drained and the spring and other innards out. How in gods name do you get the bottom bolt out? The one that you use a pretty large Allen wrench. Please help!

    Nice! Just got a new tube in the front tire on the 600. Probably taking the Sabre out when I go to meet folks at the gym.

    Do not know!
    The turn signal requires + & - connections, they are done with wiring through the wire harness, NOT grounded to the frame at the stem...
    Don`t know your Bike though, and could be different than mine...
    I`d run wire for both + & - to the harness > IF necessary <...
    Tech sticky might have a manual for you to download???
    Good Luck,

    I'm trying to fix my rear right turn signal and found the bullet male/female connector under the seat has no wiring going to the signal stem. After taking the stem off the bike, I found there is a robinson/square screw right beside the bolt which attaches it to the bike. Do I buy replacement wires, wrap that around the screw, tighten the screw and attach the other end into the bullet connector?

    Can you give me more info on ABATE? Seems you're really involved locally. I may be best served to cruise over to Ashburn for an upcoming meeting. Assuming ABATE is engaged in working to protect the rights of cyclists, I'm in.

    I've got a similar issue. I tested compression and am low in the front, down to 34 psi, my rear cyllinder is around 125 psi. I have no leaks anywhere except a small coolant leak between the cylinders (I've ordered parts to fix this). It seems to clear up when I hit the highway or give it some heavy throttle. It'll still go 85 on the hwy and seems to getup and go when I hit it. But when it idles or I keep throttle down it doesn't always fire. You can really feel the difference feeling the exhaust of each cylinder. But again when I hit the gas it mostly clears up and misses sometimes. I'm not sure whats going on.

    This problem you`re having "don`t ring no bells!" with me...
    Have you done a compression check and verified low compression, or it "just acts like" low compression on one cylinder???
    My VT750 had holes in the diaphrams in the top of the carbs, it acted somewhat similar to your symptom, but it never did straighten out and run correctly...UNTIL I swapped diaphrams, they were dried, cracked and full of holes which allowed too much air in the cylinders... 2 @ $104 each??? bad memory...
    This symptom only got worse, NOT better, at all...
    Post this up on the tech forum and see what other folks have to say...
    Good Luck,

    Has anyone had a honda shadow you go to start it and one of the cylinders have no or very low compression, continuous cranking and you can hear it pick it up and then starts on the good cyinder and then clears up , its like a lifters pump up , its rarely and it can be from short or long rides, its got 46000 miles on it and the previous owner had the same problem.
