Welcome to the forum.
We don't see those here in the U.S. but they are nice looking, same as the bigger engines.
Have fun and ride safe.

Thanks! I didnt think these smaller ones would be available in the US! Yes, Im quite happy with it. It draws the looks at every traffic light (stopl light!). I get stopped by cops too asking if its a 750cc cos it looks and sounds bigger!

Well, there's always retrofitting OEM earlier model speedo/tacho and tank
in place of what you have currently, but it's honestly a PITA.
Almost easier to buy an earlier model Shadow...that it's all already on.

If there is a motorcycle junkyard near you, the parts you need may not be too hard to find.
Altho any junkyard gas tank is going to have to be de-rusted & creme coated.


There's also a little dinky Speedo/Tach in one unit on Amazon.
Digital with blue LEDs...kinda cute, but I just can't see one on a Shadow.
