    DRL running lights. Help needed. Does the DRL share the same fuse as the blinkers? Backstory I added LED lights to the front and back. Did the front forks/blinkers first. Added relay/diodes to fix fast blinking. Everything worked fine including the white running lights on the new blinkers...

    I was wondering if a vt600 and a vt750 had the same passenger foot pegs? They look the same but wanted to make sure they’re the same before purchasing. Thank you.

    So I recently bought an 83 Shadow VT500. It was running absolutely perfectly up until yesterday. I took of the gas tank in order to paint it. I then put it back on, started it up, let it idle for a bit. But when i took it to the road it stalled after 3 minutes. It then wouldn’t start back but...

    Hi everyone. This is my first post here, and it will definitely be a doozy. I have a 98' ACE 750 that I bought with basket case carbs. Not a problem for me, as I am very familiar with Honda carbs (I got very familiar with them from my V65 Magna.) Well, of course I had no problems cleaning and...

    I Just bought the bike not long ago, but I noticed when I rode it home from the dealer the throttle response seemed a bit off. Like if I got on the throttle hard it would be a 1 sec delay then accelerate and not much as I feel it should be, it seems Boggy or struggles to accelerate. few days...

There are only a couple options from the big brands that I can see and they are chrome which is not my style and long which also isn't to my liking. Anybody...

    Purchased a 2001 Honda Shadow Sabre VT1100C2 as a 'project' bike. Front cylinders were not firing, so, I switched the coils and then the back cylinders were not firing. Thought it was a bad coil, so, purchased and new coil and installed and the back cylinders are still not firing. Is this a...

    So my old mechanic whom I've known for years now builds bobbers. I have this little 125 custom he wants. He needs 1800 priced to move on the bobber which I am sure he salvaged for nothing and spent a week on IF that this guy is a mechanical genius. So deal is I give up the red bike right, and...
