Switching from Drag bars back to stock
Hey all I am new to the forum and just picked up a 2001 vstar 1100 custom last night (sold the r6 last week).
PO put on a drag bar which doesn't really fit my taste. I'd like to go back to the stock bar. I'm assuming and hoping that there shouldn't be any issues with cables or wiring needing lengthening or shortening but it would be great if someone could confirm that.
My understanding is I just need the handlebars and a set of risers (BTW I do have a wanted / for trade add in classifieds if you're interested) and I should be good to go.
On a side note I am loving the v star. After owning an r6 for years and being amazed by the performance and reliability that comes with Yamaha I was hesitant to give that up. I road a buddies road king and got the itch for a cruiser. Than when I road a buddies v star it was a no brainer. I love the bike, plenty of power, super comfortable, great looks, yamaha reliability, and it has got to be the smoothest gearbox I have ever used. I couldn't believe how much smoother it feels than a harley shifter.
Only other mod I am going to do is highway bars. It already has a windshield, sissy bar, saddlebags, and floorboards.
