New 2009 V-Star 950 owner

Hi all. Last July I bought a brand new 2009 V-Star 950 with 10 miles on it. It had been sitting at the Yamaha dealer for a few years getting no love. I came around and bought it for a good price and now we both are very happy! Now it has about 1000 miles on it, runs great, and I'm looking forward to doing some customizing. For starters I want to change the exhaust, air intake, coil cover, belt guard. I want to relocate the license plate but keep it California legal (lighted, no vertical plates). So far I've installed ISO grips, red rear turn signal lenses and clear bulbs, run-turn-brake controller, great little 16x18" windshield I found on Ebay, and I drilled out my exhaust. I like the deeper tone but will still probably get a slip on someday.

Welcome to the STAR forum. I had a 950T. Really one of my favorite bikes especially when riding one up. I now have a Star Stratoliner Deluxe. Great tour/road bike. Have fun, be safe, watch for the people that drive like no one else is on the road!!!!

Welcome to the forum Netcat. You'll find a great bunch of people here with lots of knowledge on bikes but unfortunately most of them are colour blind. They can't see RED

Ride safe and keep it shiny side up.

A few things added and more stuff to follow
