  • Good Solid Bike
    By  (I am an Owner) on Oct 17, 2012

    Too bad Yamaha has discontinued this bike in 09 and replaced it with a belt driven 950. The 1100 is a good solid bike. Low seat height and well balanced for around town and good enough suspension for long rides. Noticed that when running 70 at interstate speeds its a little "buzzy" as if it needs ...

My only complaint is that the oil change is much harder than some bikes and I ended up putting on an Oil Filter Relocation kit by Barrons. Now my oil changes take 15 minutes instead of 90!. This is a great bike ...

    By  (I am an Owner) on Jan 08, 2009

    My 2005 V-Star 1100 Classic now has upwards of 34,000 miles and is still going strong. There are loads of both factory and aftermarket accessories available to make it truly yours. I have ridden from NJ to Key West FL (And back) on one road trip, and to Atlanta GA on another. Bike loves long chunks ...
