Spent just about all freaking day doing this mod, but it's Perfect.

Everything went well, pretty much as everyone describes.
Installed new exhaust gaskets, found a leak on the front cylinder, so $12 well spent.

Picture:

Measured my "Points GAP" at .032.
Ground almost all the way out to the bolt impression that is there fron the factory.
Moved the actual pick up location from Point A to Point B - see included picture.

Just got back from riding it:
Excellent, 2nd gear is much stronger in the bottom end.

Tomorrow I take out for a longer ride.

Well worth it.

Did the timing mod today while I had the oil out of the bike. I didn't have a dremmel or grinder so I had to improvise a bit. I used a flat file to grind off the back side of the holes and a round chainsaw chain file to elongate the holes. Yes it took a bit longer but I was still done with the mod in a couple hours. I don't know if anybody already coverd this but right or wrong, I used permatex super gray gasket maker. I took the bike for a quick spin and it seemed to seal. Hopefully that doesn't change.

Its covered, in another thread I think, gasket or permatex either one should be ok.

I was going to install my hypercharger but this is now at the top of my to-do list. Thanks for the write up.

this was actually brought up to me on an other thread about my exaust now being header only. NEver heard of it before so funny coincidence.
Seems easy and gives me a reason to get that cover off to have it powder coated. I thik I will try this on my end of season.

After reading through this whole thread I am anxious for my next service mileage to get here so I can do this. I am used to bikes with far more torque and horsepower, so the Shadow seems a little anemic to me.

Well, more power to ya man, but don't get your hopes up....I've not yet done the mod yet (it's on the list for next oil change, along with new clutch springs) but bear in mind that these 750s are exactly that....

Not to say that it won't do anything for ya (yet to be seen for me, I must admit I'm a little skeptical, but still going to do it because why not?) but if you want mucho power, you're riding the wrong bike :)

Though, I guess you could install nitrous, or get one of the high comp kits $$$

Good luck, and if you do it, please post results!!!

My last bike was a BMW R1100-RT-P police bike with a couple power mods, so the step down was rather drastic, yes. I am not looking to make a monster out of this, but any little added punch I can give it would be a major bonus. I have mellowed out a bit in my recent years so I can be perfectly happy with my little 750 for a good long time to come.
