    Hi my 750 sort of hesitates if I give it the full throttle like when I'm trying to pass a car. Say my throttle subjectively would says 70 mph, well for 2-3 seconds my bike says "Let's just stay here at 60". It protests and barks, "I'm staying right here". Then it breaks through and is fine...

    I have owned this bike for a few months now and about 2 months ago it died while out riding one day. I got it back to the house and every time I would go to start it it would kill all power. I have since then replaced the starter solenoid and the battery and even with both of those, it would...

My bike started to act like it was low on gas (which it was) so i kept riding trying to make it to the gas station about 2 miles out. Then my bike had a problem i noticed where the rpms and gear didnt match the speed i should...

    I've been riding this bike for about a month now and have had no issues. Until one day I pulled up to the gas station filled up the bike and got back on, turned the key and nothing, no lights no power or anything. I then went and got a new battery after I got the bike back to the house and it...

    Hello, I have a 2003 Honda Shadow ACE 750. Are the top shock mounts on my bike cracking or is this just the chrome oxidizing? I’ve been monkeying around with the shocks getting a new rear fender on and off. Paul

    Hi guys, I posted a thread before here about buying a scooter, but many folks here suggested me to take the training course and get a bigger bike to commute in the city. During the course, I really found riding exciting and am willing to commit more into motorcycle. I have some questions...

    Hello everyone, I am new to this website and am trying to become new to motorcycling. I went to look at a 1983 Honda shadow and am not sure whether I have found a good deal or not.

    I recently bought a 2002 Honda Shadow 600 VLX DLX. I bought it used on Craigslist with only 8,8XX miles on it. It runs amazing, no problems with anything. After taking it on the highway, going faster than I normally go (55+), I felt gas droplets on my leg, but not enough gas to actually make my...

I recharged the battery. Now the engine runs fine, but the drive no longer engages. Did the downhill start damege...

    I have a persistent and very small oil leak/drip. It all started sometime back when I had a noise in the left side (alternator) cover. I pulled the cover off and replaced the gasket and then the leak started. Because there is so much stuff attached to the side cover, running around the side...
