V-Star - Performance Mod addiction
I bought my V-Star 1100 Classic, used, about 12 years ago and I think the fact that it already had slip on pipes on it has made it easier for me to continue to modify it. Had it been perfectly stock, I think I would have been a little more restrained about modifying it and risking an unfavorable outcome. The first modification that I made was a MaxAir Predator intake kit and the rest is history. I have not done any really expensive or major modifications per se, just a good amount of relatively small and somewhat affordable modifications. It seems I am never really satisfied with the performance - no matter how impressive! I am always looking for a way to improve its performance. My most recent mod was the installation of S&S 429 cams, which I purchased a couple of years ago, but did not have the cash to have them installed until about a week ago. I know it may sound a little crazy to purchase something that I couldn't use at the time, but that is exactly what I did! However, I am glad that I did purchase them at that time, because I recently checked the S&S website and it looks like they do not carry them anymore. Since I got the bike back, I have only had a chance to take the bike around the block a couple times at low RPMs, so I am not sure how much of a difference they have really made, if any. Are there any other performance mod addicts out there like me? Has anyone installed these S&S 429 cams too and what has been your experience with them? Also, what other mods have you installed on your V-Star that has transformed your bike's performance?
