Hey from NY

New to this forum. Been riding an old Virago for the last ten years. Looking at a used 2001 V Star 1100 Classic. 15k miles. Is there anything I should know or look for? Virago has been one helluva great ride. Can I expect the same from the V Star?
Appreciate any input!
Thanks, till82

Welcome to rhe forum from Northwest Illinois. The VStar 1100 Classic comes with one problem. From the first day you own it you can't get the smile off your face. Along with that with general maintenance it is virtually indestructible. Post often and ride safe.

Working on my 'bucket list' and enjoying every minute of it!!

Hi Till, welcome to the forum. Im in total agreement with OVSM. A permanent grin and a possible oil relocation kit are the only known issues on an 1100 that im aware of. Ride safe and post often. All's we need now are some pics!
