Bought mine from this seller on Ebay. Came today, brand new. Have seen posts from others looking for replacements. You might try contacting him, and ask if he can help.


Honda Tool Kit VT750DC VT750DCA VT750DCB 750 Shadow | eBay

This guy carries a lot of OEM parts for older models at his storefront. Worth a look.

I bought my 09 used, had a tool roll but it was nearly empty. Don't know if the P.O. lost the tools or the dealer appropriated some of them. I'm guessing the dealer got them, they were a shabby outfit and have since gone under.

Someone also posted here, Cheap Cycle Parts has the full kits and also sells the tools individually. I can replace the missing stuff for mine for about $40.

$75 for the OEm tool kit is a waste of money. It's maybe 5 dollars worth of tools. For $75 you can put together a descent tool kit your self that would do a better job and probably cost a lot less then $75.

IMO the only thing worth a sh1t in the OEM tool kit is the spark plug socket, and that's only because it's thin enough to fit in the spark plug hole. The rest you can put together for a heck of a lot less than $75.

Lakota, I appreciate your post. I haven't bought the missing tools for mine yet so thanks to you now I have more options. Guess I just tossed in the info about Cheap Cycle Parts so anyone else reading the thread would have all the info they could get.

Understood. I sometimes forget what a good group of guys we have here. Guess I'm too used to forums where each guy is just trying to elbow everyone else. Got too old for that a long time ago, but I still play the same tapes, if you know what I mean.

I picked one up from eBay as well, I think it was $20...the tools are a little cheap, but I don't have any storage space as of yet on my Shadow, so having the tool kit that fits in the holder under the side cover was worth the $20 to me. Even had to use them the last couple of days!
