  1. Hi guys, just purchased a shadow 750....Any opinions on these bikes would be appreciated :grin:

    Moved to here from Maintenance, and Appearance - Flipper
  2. Aftermarket pipes are a must!
    Stock they sound absolutely appauling for a vtwin.
  3. i 2nd that
    a Ulysses mate has debaffled his and it sounds AWSOME :roses:
  4. I have one of these and have blinged happily away. (check my garage)

    4 mods you must do

    1. k nad n air filter improves acceleration without the need for jetting etc
    2 braided brake lines are a MUST DO mod
    3 gunslinger seat
    4 37 tooth rear sprocket for top end cruising without sacrificing take of speed.

    I love this bike and it purrs along nicely, easy to handle and ya can have a sleep while you ride :cool:



  5. Was going to buy one of these but remembered that NSW learner laws didn't want me on a 750 Shadow, so got the 600cc instead. Didn't stop me from test riding the 750 after I got my fulls though. Brilliant bike, doesn't have 1100cc power, but its fast enough. Full throttle from a set of lights and you launch pretty good. With a sort of "wow this goes alright" feeling. But that is not why you buy a 750 Shadow, it really shines as a weekend cruiser but is also nimble enough to commute comfortably on each day to work. Whack a Cobra exhaust on and some ISO flame grips and cruise past the coffee shops and bars on a friday night, you'll turn heads.

    750 Shadow is very popular in the U.S which means a whole host of aftermarket parts are available to customize your Shadow. Cruisercustomizing.com is your friend.
