Hey all new to the forum

Hey all I am Robert AKA rabidrider. Joining the forum to talk with people more tailored towards star type bikes. I have a 650 Vstar that I have been starting to have issues with but the is for another thread. For now I just wanted to say hi and ride safe.

Welcome Robert from North Carolina!
Yes, please post pics. We’d like to see your ride!
I don’t have your type of bike, but there are some oretty knowledgeable people here who I’m sure can help you.
Also, if you don’t have the Service Manual for your bike, I HIGHLY recommend you get one. It will also contain troubleshooting procedures for MANY problems common to your model.

there are not many people that have been able to stump the collective knowledge of the entire forum

if something is not right with your bike, by all means, dont be shy.
