    Hello. A few years ago I picked up a 99 shadow 1100. I rebuilt the carb and got it all back together along with anew battery and a fresh oil change. It needed some work to pass inspection but I got into nursing school so I had to set it aside. It sat for about 2.5 years in upstate new york and...

    So, I took on a project bike knowing basically nothing about working on a bike. It's a shadow750 frame, with a Shadow 1100 motor build. I think it's mostly all there.

    Hi everyone! I’m working on the two carbs from my 1985 Honda Shadow vt500c. This is the second time I’m attempting this, as my first time was unsuccessful. I have a few questions. When installing a new (same size, 38) pilot jet, you lightly butt it all the way in, and then bring it 2 1/4...

    I recently bought a 1997 Honda shadow. I am having a few issues with it, first of all it doesn’t idle right at all it slows down almost stalls then revs back up a little. Also it doesn’t feel like it has the power it used to have at all especially in the cold. And the biggest thing is it’s only...

    I'll start off by saying, this is my first motorcycle. I bought it second hand and it was most definitely tinkered with by multiple hands I've noticed whenever I "blip" the throttle instead of getting the usual rev I get a thunk in the top end of the motor. It sounds like the valves are...
