Why is my honda shadow engine knocking


Could be this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gGIaTn91Ls
or this (you have a non hydraulic valves, so time to time you have to adjust them) : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qtZmB9klWio
It could also be a cam chain, specially if you have over 50k miles (it is more like a rattle sound which goes away with higher rpm).
Hope you do not have this sound, it sounds like a connecting rod, but this would happen only, if the engine was operating without oil.

Have 10000 miles on my bike does the shaft drive oil need to be changed or what?


Final drive assemblies on motorcycles generally cost over $1000. They tend to show signs of dirt after only 5000 miles. Having driven shaft drive motor cycles for over 30 years I usually change my 85/90 Hypoid gear oil at every second engine oil change. It is never very dirty but if taken into the sun light will show some fine metal chips (nothing to worry about). I highly recommend using synthetic Hypoid gear oil. It will cause less friction and the final drive will run at a much cooler temperature. One quart of Hypoid gear oil will change the rear end oil 3 or 4 times so it is good, cheap preventive maintenance. Simply take off the large fill cap, place a pan under the small drain bolt at the bottom of the pan,remove the drain bolt, drain the oil, put the drain bolt back in, and fill the final drive to the bottom of the larger fill hole (usually a quarter to half cup of oil), then replace the large cap being careful to only snug it tight enough to seal in the oil. If you over tighten it, it is designed to break! Be sure to check the owners manual on the exact amount of oil to use. Honda has changed the fill technique for some of the newer models. With a higher fill hole on some newer models you may be over filling the final drive, so you may have to measure the amount. Too much oil will cause waste and may cause over flow out the top vent. Happy Trails.

Should I adjust my valves? 1999 Honda Shadow Ace.


Well if its running good and you don't here any out of the ordinary rattling I wouldn't worry about it until at least 25,000-30,000 miles on the bike so probabley in another 10,000 miles or so have the valves adjusted unless you hear any unordinary rattling noises sooner then go in at that point and have them adjusted.

I have a 07 Honda vt100 shadow spirit... Ran fine yesterday I parked it for about 3 hours.. When I went to start the bike later I pushed starter switch and NOTHING not even a sound.. Lights blinkers horn...


you may want to check the safty switch on the kick stand. if it is falty then it would not let the bike start. it would let everything else work though. make sure it is in neutral
