Nice write up Aced-it! very well done step by step.

Clutch springs are a good idea if you went to a 39 to 38t sprocket too

Otherwise, I dunno.
Thanks. Now to place my order for the springs.

Mmmmmmm....I am wondering if I should order a replacement gasket for the crankcase....just in case.

Depends. My 04' Aero just uses Black RTV for the sealant/gasket. Available at any auto parts store. Heck, even WalMart.

Warning right up front: this is a noob question, but can this mod be done on a '95 Shadow Spirit 1100 as well? Is there much difference in the process?

I realize they are completely different motors and all, but you have done such a good job with the write up, and have made it look so easy, that I can't see why I wouldn't want to do this on my 1100, if possible...

Thanks!

Should work the same. Both engines are similar design.

I used the Barrett Clutch Springs which are slightly heavier gauge and taller. These are recommended by who knows if you have done the sprocket mod which puts more load on the clutch at takeoff.

AcedIt. Did I see you using permanent lock tight on the magnetic pickup? What if someone wants to change it. It's high heat permanent = pain in ass.

I do make clear that blue should be used. Red is all I had at the time and when used very sparingly it is not as permanent as you think. And who else is going to mess with it but me?

No one I suppose. My bike will end up in a air tight glass case revolving in my living room when I'm finished riding it. One owner always. LOL.

This might seem obvious, but I'm assuming that my '99 ACE has a regular gasket. Is there any reason I shouldn't simply replace it with liquid gasket when I do this job? It seems a lot easier than ordering a gasket, especially since I'm not a fan of giving the stealership money.


Just ride
