If you DO end up having to replace the rings, you'll need to use your MANUAL to get the step-by-step since each bike is slightly different.

Don't have your manual? You're in luck! We have service manuals (downloaded and ready to use--including many no longer in print) on our site: Honda Shadow Service Manuals HERE  (YOU'RE WELCOME!!!)
