Question VStar 1100 Oil Filter Relocation Kit

I am seriously considering installing the filter relocation kit on my "08" 1100. I am however, concerned about possible warranty issues with this "engine modification". Questions to both Yamaha and Jardine customer service have been very uninsuring. Any Insight?

If you don't ride it a lot, I wouldn't worry about spending the money on it. If you do ride a lot your warranty will run out in a few months anyway. I put 30k miles, 4 tires, 1 front set and 2 rear sets of those ridiculously small brakes, (and working on a new clutch) on my 08 just last summer

I put a Barons ork on my 1100 and am very happy with it, there is a lot of info and good reading on sloneservices.com on the ork issue. They talk like it has a lot to do with the ins dia of your lines, if you are really interested, check it out, good luck.

I have 2 words. Do It.I installed the Jardine kit sure makes oil changes easy, less messy and cheaper. You can go to your local auto parts store for the filter about 2/3rds the price of a motorcycle shop.

Thumbs up Thanks for the good info

Thanks Suger Bear that link is VERY informative and answered questions I never thought of. I have the Yamaha extended warranty and and am still interested if any one has had warranty claim issues because of an installed ORK. DMTJOY: read the info on the recommended link sloneservices.com it might change your thinking. The part about 1/8" ID lines made alot of sense!

Really don't know about the warranty issue, I had my ork on for awhile and then made a run from SO IN to west CO last summer it was a total 3000+ pretty hard running overall, and still not a problem of any kind, I do believe you will be pretty happy with it,as Doug said, easy less messy, and back on the road. As a side note, if you do your own work, it's a snap to install.

Ride Safe, Live Long

I installed a Barons ork on my bike at the 5000k service. I have just done the 20000k service and no problems. It makes oil changes a breeze.

Installing an ork doesn't affect the warranty anyhow, Baron's worked with Yamaha in designing their ork. The benefits of installing it far out weigh any head-aches you would have down the road any how. As many oil changes as I do on my own bike as well as customers bikes, I'd be lost without the ork's!

When I purchased my bike in April of this year it came with the Barons ORK. Since then I changed my oil twice using a Yamaha spin on type oil filter. I think they work great and the dealer here always have them in stock. I also find that Yamalube 20/50 oil realy helps quiet down the valve noise that every one complains about.

I acquired my '05 a short time ago. Immediately I changed the oil, (always-don't trust POs). And...immediately after the first oil change installed a Baron's relocation kit. Installation was a breeze, took longer to reinstall the front header pipe than the kit. My oil and filter change time has been reduced to about 15 minutes. Yamaha should do this themselves and increase the price of the bike by a couple hundred dollars. The ork makes life easier, oil changes shorter so you can do some really fun stuff.
