V Star 650 "throwing rod" problem typical?
I am researching my first bike and have pretty much narrowed it down to a 2002 V Star 650 and a 2002 Honda Shadow Aero 750. The Honda people are telling me that V Stars are notorious for "throwing rods" at about 30-40k miles. I must admit that I'm not much of a mechanic, so I have no idea what this means, but apparently it is something that pretty much ruins the engine. What do you all think about this info?
