Talking Just got a 2007 VSTAR 1300

Hi.
New member. Thanks for hosting this forum. I got the manual for my bike and trying to figure out what I have
Looking forward to some help from others who preceded me and all our wisdom. I am sure I will have my share of stupid questions.
I was really disappointed to see how few youtube videos there are on the 1300. That is my usual go-to answer supply.
Dave

Hi Dave, welcome to the forum from East Tennessee. The 1300 is a great ride, similar to the 950 which I own. Test rode a 1300 at Yamaha’s demo ride weekend last summer. Great handling and brakes.

Hello Dave from South Carolina

Welcome to the Forum. The information here is almost never ending.

I currently own a 2014 Vstar 1300 Deluxe. Have only owned it for about a week, today. Going from a 2005 Vstar 1100 Classic Silverado, I am really enjoying it greatly. Maybe a few photos of your Bike will help identify any special model specifics...MD in SC
