New to Yamaha

Hey everyone. I’m Bobby. I love in Texas. I’m new to Yamaha motorcycles. But just got a great deal on a 2013 V-Star 950. Always looking for any tips or tricks to a new ride.

there's a switch underneath the rear fender of the 950 that activates the hydraulic lift system..................

Welcome from Atlantic Canada, Bobby. I ride an 1100 but the 950 has the same solid reputation for dependability as the rest of the Yamaha Star bikes and will give you plenty of trouble free miles. You found the best forum for learning all about your new ride and sharing tips and experiences with other Star enthusiasts.

Welcome to the forum from East Tennessee. I also ride a 950. Any pics you’d like to share with us?
