I know it is not a goldwing but I have seen the knowlege base here and its unbelievable. I have a 1100 Honda Spirit thatI am looking at buying. The rear head is putting off so much heat the stock pipe gets so red you can see thru it. Compression is good, carbs been rebuilt. I need a CMI box if anyone know where I can pick one up. I can pick the bike up pretty cheap if I want too I just need to know how much of a problem I have before I shoot the guy a offer. Can anyone help me out here?

I would guess completely blindly that the timing was off.

Like Rudy says, timing, valve or carb setting way off. Does it fire and run ok?

Also post your question on www.hondashadow.net. There are many ACE mechanics on that site and you wont be able to get any more info on a shadowe of any age then there.

I ran into the red hot exhaust on an XR400 a number of rears ago. Timing was way retarded causing it to fire past an open exhaust valve.
