Just joined this forum. I've been riding since 1980, mostly sport bikes. My wife bought me a new 2016 V Star 1300 deluxe last spring. I'm used to working on older bikes (80s). This my second new bike, my first one was a 1989 Ninja 750 in black. My wife bought me that one too. My previous bikes include a 77' RD400, 76 KH400, a couple of 82' CB705Fs and 81 CB900Fs, 83 GS1100, 89' Ninja 750, 82' GPZ750, 84' KZ750, 85' FZ750, and now my V Star. I just switched handlebars on the 1300 with nice bagger bars that bring my hands closer together and at shoulder height. Can't wait for better weather so that I can try them out. The stock handlebars caused a really bad muscle pinch right between the shoulder blades. Taking the fairing off to change the bars was fun. I'll post a little work instruction explaining how to remove the fairing incase anybody plans on doing this as well.
