    Hello. VLX600 here with the factory tail light/license plate bracket combo. I do not like it. I wanna go LED tail light with integrated turn signals. But I don't want to do any modification if I can help it. Is there a plug n play for this??

    I bought a used 2004 Shadow with 800 miles on it. I recently got the bike’s carbs clean and it runs fine. It’s just that when I run out of gas on the regular tank setting, my reserve doesn’t work. The tank could most likely need a cleaning. Is that it or something else? Thanks

    Hi all, New to the forums just testing the waters on something. I’ve been looking at aftermarket gas tanks on eBay for a 1991 Honda shadow VLX 600 and I see a ton of these sportster style peanut tanks and variations that appear to be from the same company. I’m working on restoring my bike and...

    I bought an all original 94 VLX 600 with only 3300 miles so it’s obviously been doing a lot of sitting. It starts and idles fine with no choke on and runs, but seems to be only firing at about half power or less. It doesn’t choke off while running, but there’s serious bogging that requires...

    We recently picked up a 2002 VLX600 (our second Shadow, I rode an '84 VT500C for many years) and I'd love a second opinion on some behavior it's showing: It runs fine on even a small amount of choke, and once warm, will idle and rev fine in neutral with no choke at all. But as soon as you...

    Hi all, Just installed saddlebags and had to remove rear indicators, looking for where to put them now. Figured easiest way would be to get a new license plate holder with mounts for indicators and mount bullet turn signals there but lost for which part would fit (based in europe). Any help...
