Hey, hope you figure out the tech on your sweet new ride. I love the look of the V Star 1300 Deluxe. Do you have any pics?
I think Kawis are known for having smooth gear boxes, yeah? And/or Suzuki too, I think. IDK, not much experience here, but I don't mind my 950.
Welcome to the forum, and hope you are loving your new ride!
Keep moving, learning, loving, and living.
