I am a woman rider, and changing my own oil just doesn't appeal to me. I have a '88 shadow vt 800. If I take my bike in to get the oil change, the spark plugs changed and the brakes adjust......


No more than a day, probably a morning's work if you book ahead for a full service. Obviously if you go on spec they have to fit it in around their other jobs and may not have the replacement parts in stock.

Timing chain slapping when cold . can anyone tell me how to adjust timing chain on a 88 honda shadow vt 1100


hello
yes, there should be an timing chain adjuster sticking out the side.
they are self adjusting, so if you think it needs further adjustment, it probably means that your timing chain is stretched and its time for a new chain.

Best Regards
Big Al
