  1. Transmission issue

    Technical Discussion
    Someone posted this YT video for me when I was asking a question about shifting. Maybe it will help you understand the workings a little bit better.
  2. 2009 VT750C Issues With Downshifting

    Technical Discussion
    I have issues with mine as well, so I don't really have an answer. I have determined that if I depress the clutch another time or two and also try to downshift while the lever is not fully released, it will downshift. My bike was sitting with out much use for 5 years before I bought it, so I...
  3. Ignition issue

    Technical Discussion
    By no ignition lights, do you mean the headlight/taillight that come on, or the instrument panel lights?
  4. Spark plug fowling my fault?

    Technical Discussion
    If it’s not oily, it must be carb adjustment. Too much fuel and not enough air. I’ve never attempted to adjust carbs on a bike, but I get the idea that it’s challenging. Even more so for someone who has little experience. I can get by with doing a car with a single carb, but I hope I never need...
  5. Holes drilled in steed400 exhaust

    Technical Discussion
    It doesn’t look like anything a factory would do, but I’ve never owned that particular bike. None of my exhausts have holes like that either.
  6. oil leaking around water pump

    Technical Discussion
    Baby powder is the way to go to see where it’s leaking. Is your Ace chain drive or shaft. My 06 Aero (shaft drive) seemed to be leaking from an o-ring from behind the output gear. Ftom what I read, it would gave been a Pita to fix it. I ended up selling before it annoyed me enough to pursue it.
  7. RepairManual

    Technical Discussion
    Oh well, not sure if the color really makes that much difference. I don’t think the Honda manual is predominantly color anyway.
  8. Oil change before winter storage?

    Technical Discussion
    Just my opinion and I’ve only had a bike for a about 8 years, but I always winterize my stuff (including lawn equipment) by changing the oil before storing it. I’m in my late 60’s, so it’s interesting to hear the other opinions. I always start my bike a few times during the cold months and run...
  9. Gas cap leaking after cleaning tank - 97 VT600

    Technical Discussion
    Usually this is caused by a malfunctioning vent, as has already been stated
  10. Fork help?

    Technical Discussion
    Do you know for a fact that the donor forks are good and usable?
  11. Mustang seat?

    General Bike Discussion
    It occurred to me that I hadn’t posted a pic of the bike with the seat on it. I took it out today and snapped a photo of it, minus the driver backrest. Probably the last ride for the year. 😢
  12. Spirit ?

    Technical Discussion
    Not sure, but it sounds like it could dieseling. Normally just occurs when the octane level of the fuel you are using is too low. I think there is a good discussion in the forum called Fuelology.
  13. Mustang seat?

    General Bike Discussion
    Oh yeah, beautiful ride! I like the bags too,
  14. Mustang seat?

    General Bike Discussion
    I realized that I failed to update the thread after putting on the seat. Only a few rides with my wife “BAMBI” as a passenger, but we definitely notice the difference. She does not slide towards the driver every time I hit a bump or come to a stop. I had to remove the driver backrest, because it...
  15. Mustang seat?

    General Bike Discussion
    Doing a little searching, I was able to come up with a pretty good deal on a used Mustang seat. A bonus is that the driver seat has a backrest, which I really wasn’t looking for. The pictures were not detailed enough to see if there is actually some wear and tear that I would care about, but it...
  16. Mustang seat?

    General Bike Discussion
    RDL? I’m not familiar with that brand and nothing came up on EBay. Can you shed some light on them?
  17. Mustang seat?

    General Bike Discussion
    Sounds like the votes are in and the Mustang wins! Now If I can just find a good deal on one, new or used. For used seats, I need to find a cross reference to see what year bikes would be the same fitment as mine. I looked at some pictures online and at least some of the seats that are 2 piece...
  18. Mustang seat?

    General Bike Discussion
    I’ve gotten plenty of positive comments from my riding buddies for the Mustang and also Corbin seats. I’m okay with the stock seat, but what I’m wondering does anyone know if the rider in the back is happy. I wonder if the angle on the stock seat is just slightly sloped towards the driver.
  19. Mustang seat?

    General Bike Discussion
    Just wondering how many ppl have swapped the stock seat for aftermarket such as Mustang seat? I have an 05 Sabre and the stock seat appears to have been altered, when I look at the underside. I don’t know if the PO just added more padding or exactly what. I’ve noticed that when my wife is riding...
  20. Shifting problems

    Technical Discussion
    That is also a good video. My buddy mentioned something about that spring that puts the shifter back into a “neutral” position.
