Hi All,
Just picked up my new to me 2013 Road Star Silverado S yesterday & found this forum this morning. I really love the way the bike handles, smooth, powerful & great looks. Less than 5k on the clock. Anything I should be looking for on this model? Thanks!

Welcome and congrats on your new bike. No issues with your year. It's a great bike. 99-03 had a tranny recall and 04-05ish had a problem with sticky valves. Yamaha came out with a bulletin to use 4 qts of oil when changing and to not overfill the oil. Nothing I'm aware of in years. I'm looking hard at the 2012-2014s to replace an 03 unless something comes out in the next 6 months that changes my mind. Good luck!

Welcome

That RS is every bit as bulletproof as your Gold Wing.
That's a nice blue.You picked a good mate for your Honda.

Thanks. Now that's what I'm talkin about. That is one great lookin machine ya got there. I too like the color, and the pin stiping really helps to set it off.
