Rear traction on 2004 honda 1100 vt sabre

I recently bought used (4000 mi) bike and having real issue with rear wheel sliding to the right both on straight line braking and when acceleratingout of turns. I replaced Dunlop with Metzler but still having problem. Any advise will be greatly appreciated as I recently dumped the damn thing going around 15 MPH - I hit the back brake and rear end came around so far to the right that bike ended up 90 degrees to direction of travel. Could it be a problem with shock ? Dealer can't help - wants $100 to determine if wheels are in line with one another. Thanks, Rob

Hi ...... Def'ly sounds like a traction problem. Elevate the rear wheel off the ground using a centre-stand or axle stands. Grip the wheel at 12 o'clock & 6 o'clock then 9 o'clock & 3 o'clock, wiggle & pull (gently) in both positions, if you feel any movement it points towards wheel bearings. Check to see if there are any oil leaks, oil breather hose or battery breather hose which exit over the rear wheel. Is the shock leaking onto the wheel ? Is it a drum or disc brake ?

How do I remove the rear wheel out of a 2002 sabre?


Center stand the bike,loosen the rear axle nut, take out the axle bolt, knock out the spacer , unbolt the rear brake caliper and hang it so you do not stress the brake hose , grab the wheel, and slide it sideways away from the final drive. The wheel should slide right off the spline of the final drive and roll out the back under the fender. If the wheel won't slide past the final drive let the air out of the tire. Be sure to coat the spline of the final drive with moly60 paste from your local Honda dealer when reassembling.

I cant get the rear tire off my 2004 honda vt 1100 c2. Seame like the swing arm is the reason, but the honda servce manual says it should slide to the right and come right off. I need help! :) Seams like...


Often to remove the rear wheel on a Honda , you have to let the air out of the tire and squeeze it out past the shaft drive spline. Some times the problem is made worse by previous owners that put on a tire bigger than the recommended size. With no air in the tire it should come out easily enough.

I just bought a used 2004 Honda VT 1100 Shadow Sabre. How do you check the fluid level in the final drive?


There should be a cap screwed in just behind the wheel spindle with a 17mm hex head. remove this and the oil should be up to the bottom of the hole.
