    Default Shadow 400



    Hi Guys,

    I'm planning to get a Honda Shadow. I have been riding Steed for the past 2 years.

    Able to give some advice on Shadow please? Like what are the common problems for Shadow and what to anticipate when I get that bike.

    Appreciate your inputs!

    Of course I trust my skills. I ride alone cos I don't trust the competency of the driver next to me.

    Ive ridden both bikes

    Steed Pros
    Better Fuel consumption
    Faster
    More bobber looking
    Analog meter

    Steed Cons
    Fuel tank inside will get rusty and might leak.
    Shorter in length. Anything you add makes the bike more cramped.
    Bikes should use more front brakes. Due to the skinny front tire,You will find the rear brake for the steed is more effective.
    Aftermarket suspension not available for the rear.
    The angle of the triple trees makes any modification to the front makes your bike look cramped.

    Shadow pros
    Looks very tour like.
    Heavier.. might be a pro or con to you.
    If you find your suspension not good enough, there are Rear and front progressive suspension options.
    Single pin engine makes you feel the V-Twin rumble(03 models and older)
    Closed front forks makes your seal lasts longer.

    Shadow cons.
    Most shadows I know max out at 125km/hr.
    If you wana change your handlebar, you might have problems with the kink of the clutch cable.

    are you sure for a 400cc honda shadow go for maximum speed of only 125km/hour, if yes the bike must be something wrong, my dailin daystar 140cc top speed already 140km.hour

    Although it's 400cc, the amount of mass it needs to haul around brings down the top speed. But 125km/h is with saddlebags I suppose.

    I intended to buy a Shadow 200 but gave up that idea when I test rode one. Sluggish bugger.


    Ride on
