New to V-Star
I am new to this forum and to the my Yamaha V-Star 1100 Classic. I come from riding sport bikes, my last being a Suzuki GSXR 1000. I am getting older, a baby on the way, and tickets are too expensive. I am enjoying the laid back ride but I am experiencing issues with my new bike. I have a 2005 V-Star 1100 Classic that has Vance & Hines aftermarket pipes. I am having issues with back-firing when coming to a stop and utilizing downshifts to assist braking. I also have the issue of it revving up high as I come to a stop, then going back down to a regular idle. I appreciate all the responses in advance and if this is not the place to post let me know and I will get headed in the right direction. Thanks.
