    I recently acquired a 2003 Shadow ACE. I was noticing that no matter what position I have the petcock in, it runs like normal.. I've read some reports of vacuum actuated petcocks but even if that's the case should the shutoff not... shutoff the fuel? Lol

    Hi guys, new here and need some help please! I recently purchased a 2007 Honda Shadow Spirit 750. Bike runs great and looks great, although about a week ago I noticed a small gas leak from the petcock valve. Didn’t think this was much of an issue so I ordered a new one on amazon. It was $22...
