Hello Bruno,bruno said:Hello to everyone.
Im from Portugal and Just traded my previous xvs Dragstar 250 from 2003, to a Shadow VT750 C2 from 1997.
Everything is working just fine with the bike, but a I have a couple of questions that I would like to ask you guys.
First - How can I block the front wheel as I did with Dragstar?
Second - Does the Honda as a small room (as the Dragstar did) to store a reflecting jacket or a puncture repair sprayer?
Third - How much does this baby consumes at a 80 km - 100 km.
Thank you in advance to all answers.
Bento nas Bentas!!!
First off, welcome to the forum.
1) I am not sure what you mean by blocking the front wheel. Do you mean locking it...as a security measure? If so, there is a turn lock on the right side of the bike at the lower triple tree (where the forks pass to the handle bars). You use your ignition key to lock the handlebars to one side.
2) The Shadows do not have a storage box on them (except maybe the tool kit location but it is TINY!!) I would suggest looking at either saddlebags for your bike or possibly a toolbag (it goes on front of your bike below the headlight) or a sissy bar bag (if your bike has a sissy bar).
3) Your Shadow should get 23-25 km/L (55-60 mpg). So, to go 80-100 km, you should use a maximum of 4.5 L (approximately 1 Gal) of fuel.
Hope this helps.
