Welcome -- this web site is about the VT-1100T,
the 1998-2000 Honda Shadow Tourer (The T).
It is also about ridin' the T and the wind.

Night Light modifications to my 1998 Honda Shadow VT-1100cc Tourer -- with a Mustang seat, a GIVI
Monolock trunk system encircled by blue LEDs, and a pair of Radiant Effect halogen driving lights,
mounted on the chrome headlight visor. The location is Friendswood, Texas -- 30 miles south of
Rocket City (Houston) and the photographer is my best friend (and wife) Janna Sue. Send
pictures of your Honda or club announcements and I will post them. Or maybe you
want to sell your Honda Tourer; this is the place to list it! Email me. Dave.

Tell me friend, what is time?

Time... she's a wastin'!!

This is from Wayne from North East Alabama:
I noticed your link about dead batteries, after just having mine to fail me on
a trip to Thunder Beach this year I thought I would share some info with you.
I too found my connector toast when I got back home and replaced it by butt
splicing the wires together, and thought my problem was sovled until I started
looking for a meter of some type so I could keep a check on my battery. I found
a handy little gadget called the Heads-Up Voltage Monitor, it's a single multi-
colored LED that changes color depending on your battery/charging system voltage,
very small and easy to mount. Well after I got it mounted it was telling me I
still had a problem, my voltage was running low but yet enough to keep a low
charge in my battery. After some more surfing I found this "Fault Finding Chart"
from www.electrosport.com, after following the easy steps I found that the ground
wire from my rectifier wasn't making a good ground, so I cleaned it and also made
another ground wire that runs from that ground point to the negative side of my
battery, like they suggest and now my T's charging just like it should. I'm sure
if I had not found the faulty ground I would have soon toasted my rectifier or
stator too, you can find the Heads-Up Monitor at www.cyclegadgets.com,
I hope this helps.
