Honda Shadow Aero 750


Accessories and Fitment

For the front pegs, it's the 8803, for the rear pegs it's the 8802.

Not without some creative modification that has thus far eluded all. If you find a practical solution to this dilemma, we suggest that you patent it before presenting will be rich!

The "large" are no problem, but they are "large" in the same respect that shrimp are "jumbo". The Jumbo's CAN be installed slung low and forward without relocation, but will interfere with a passengers legs and possibly with certain aftermarket pipes... really should have the turn sigs relocated for proper installation.

It's a Bates solo saddle. They no longer make them anymore but you can find reproductions on Ebay.

These descriptions came from our very own Bama000

  • Stage 1: Aftermarket pipes, dyno stage one kit, stock breather box with snorkle intact.
  • Stage 2: The stage 1 kit with aftermarket pipes, K and N filter on a stock airbox, snorkle may be removed.
  • Stage 3: The stage 2 kit, aftermarket pipes, replace stock airbox and snorkle with something a whole lot easier to breathe through, or completely removed and running a velocity stack.
  • Stage 4: No baffles on tuned drags, velocity stack, ported heads and a cam.That's the way dyno boy splained it to me on the phone.
  • There are numerous aftermarket risers available. However, Magna risers are commonly used because they bolt right on and fit the bike perfectly. Our good friend Bama000 gives us more riser options by explaining how he fits standard thread risers:

    "Metric risers use a 12mm bolt and that's what the Aero needs. Unfortunately that leaves you with using risers scavenged off of other bikes (like the very nice Magna risers) or spending shitloads of money on overpriced aftermarkets. Turns out that there are tons of less expensive risers out there, but all tapped for the 1/2" bolts that are common for Harley use. I have run ACE risers, Magna risers as well as aftermarket bars with integral risers. Recently I took a 1/2" drill and ran it through my riser mounts (using a lot of wd-40 as a lube) and now have the ability to run any riser I want. It only takes a few minutes to drill the bushings out and EBay, along with every bike shop in the country, has cheaper risers that will now fit. V-TWIN and Jireh are big suppliers of inexpensive risers in lots of styles and shapes. Meancycles can get you additional discounts if you purchase these same items from these same suppliers through them. The benefit of being able to adjust bar location, as well as angle, are really an improvement over stock by switching over to risers. A very sensible modification that can be done for less than $50 in some cases, and rarely over $100 for some super spiffy risers"

    Many riders have commented that the Mustang (and maybe Corbin) seat adds a little leg room since the rider sits higher. A few folks have added Mapam forward controls.

    Stock tire sizes on the Aero 750 are (REAR) 160/80-15 and (FRONT) size 120/90-17. These OEM sized tires are offered by Dunlop, Bridgestone and possibly others.

    Aftermarket REAR: If you go with wide whitewalls, the Dunlop K555 is 170/80-15. The Dunlop D404 (NOTE:this rear tire has a narrower whitewall than it's K555 sibling) is a size 150/90-15. This tire wider than stock with a lower profile. The narrower whitewall makes it an aesthetically undesirable choice. The front whitewall offered by Dunlop is a series 404 whitewall and sized 140/80-17, which like the other (K555) whitewall is both taller and wider than stock. There have been NO reported fitment problems with either REAR tire, however: After I had the tires mounted and balanced by my local dealer ($56 for both), I brought it home and immediately put it up on a jack. I had rubbing on the front tire. The contact point on the tire was a raised "rib" which represents the widest point on the 140/80-17 whitewall. It was rubbing lightly on the narrowest point of the fender, or the "indents" where the fender is concave to clear the forks. I could hear a "squeak" (with the bike elevated) when I spun the front wheel and when trying to spin it, I got less than two revolutions from it, when three would've been normal. To remedy this I took a 4" electric grinder, had a friend spin the front wheel and carefully "cut" the high rib of the front tire down some. I did this on both sides, taking about 1/16th inch off of each side. It cleared then, barely. To fire for effect, I added a couple small flat washers and placed them between the fender mount (fork brace) and the fender, which netted me another 1/16th of an inch or so clearance on each side. It should also be noted that some tweaking of the front fender guard (I have a Hondaline) was required to ensure that it also cleared.

    You should plan on ordering NEW TUBES in the proper size before you have the tires installed. Your personal safety is worth more than the money you'll save trying to reuse your old tubes. Even IF you go with direct-replacement tires, new tubes are a good idea.

    Service and Maintenance


    This is a well documented self delusion on the part of the Candy Dark Red owners, typically brought on by the residual effects of gross drug abuse practiced during the '60's and '70's... humor them.

    While the forum doesn't know of any actual Riding Clubs based soley on the Aero 750, at least one group was born, in part, out of the forum. Read the W.H.O.R.E.S. credo (Microsoft Word format) for a taste of what they're all about.

    Does Mabel know how to stay on her feet? No.
