New 1100 Classic owner in STL
Hi all. I've been enjoying the forums for a while and thought I would introduce myself.
I picked up a 2006 V-Star 1100 Classic about 3 weeks ago here in St. Louis, MO. It had 4,000 miles on it, but I've added another 1,000 already.
It was pretty "customized" when I got it, so I haven't done much. I did pull the carbs to clean them, but ended up putting in new jets all around in the process (all one step up from stock). I also added a Kuryakyn run-turn-brake controller as I really didn't like the limited visibility from the rear. While working on the wiring, I also re-wired everything from the rear harness back after finding a shorted and melted signal wire. I also added a GMax wireless brake signal unit for the LED in my helmet.
It didn't come with a windshield and I really like the look without it, but the highway wind is starting to take a toll on me. I was lucky to find a Silverado windshield locally off a RoadStar. It came with brackets that won't work, but I'm hoping to make the shield work. Worst case, I only spent $100 on the shield and brackets (including a leather pouch installed on the inside of the shield), and the seller added a factory lightbar (and lights) for free - so I couldn't say no :-)
Enough talk though, here are a few pics.
