Member Info: Hi, I''m driving a 1999 Honda Shadow ACE 400 - probably the only one in Ireland so far, as this bike is not available in Europe and the US. Mine is a Japanese import with lots and lots of extras. There is a lot of confusion about this bike, going as far as people are not sure if it actually exists ;-) The secret behind it is, that it is the exact same bike as the Shadow ACE 750, even the physical size of the engine is the same. Only 2 differences: The carbs (e.g no lever on the side of the carbs to change the exhaust sound) and the INSIDE of the engine (less space, smaller pistons). Once you know that, life is easier, as I can buy every item available for the Shadow ACE 750 (even jet kits and exhausts fit -i''ve tried it!) Having "officially" only 33bhp (legal requirement for learner drivers in Ireland) this baby still makes about 100mph without any problems (you can hardly do more on Irish roads ;-))
