Thanks for sharing your knowledge 9 Months, 1 Week ago  
Just wanted to say thanks to all who have shared their knowledge here to help guys like me. I bought my 02 R* late last season to replace my wrecked vstar 1100. I only got a few short rides in before the season ended. It ran "ok" but I knew something wasn't quite right and thanks to the info I found here I am very pleased with the results. I followed the jetting advice given and ported the manifold plus put quiet baffles in the V&H exhaust. It starts better, runs smoother and seems to have a ton more pulling power and no more popping of decel. Again, thanks to all.

I started riding 4 seasons ago, starting with a 1999 1100 V Star Custom. A snappy and fun bike to ride. Those 1100 V Stars are great bikes. But... the Road Star with Big Ed seat got me spoiled.

If it is broke, fix it. If it is not, make it better!

This place has always been the Holy Grail for information regarding Yamaha's Road Star. The wealth of knowledge here is quite literally phenomenal. The willingness of the members to help with problems not only with advice, but with parts and materials at times, is a legacy that goes back to the very beginning of the Forum itself.
This Forum will always serve as a tribute to a great motorcycle. They aren't perfect, but when treated right, are as dependable as a hammer.
When I joined a number of years ago, You could still go back to the original post in the different topics, and work your way forward, to the present. It'd be considerably more difficult now.
The sacrifices made by those who set the Forum up and have helped to maintain it over the years, often gets overlooked. They are they ones to whom a debt of gratitude is owed.
We have members all around the Globe who contribute here. Things can get a little prickly when we get off the subject of Road Stars, but when you're sharing a beer or two over the back fence, or a pond a couple of thousand miles wide, you'll have that.
Yamaha's Road Star, is the tie that binds in this place.
