    I recently installed Ramflo 400s as part of a DIY pod setup on my 2005 VStar 1100. Wanted to share my experience here in case others want to follow suit. The idea is credited to Joe Conway (Custom Air kit pics). The usual pod setup of having air filters hidden under the fuel tank leaves the...

    I just wanted to put a general reminder to all of those guys getting redfaced and beating their chest at the motorcycle gods. Take a break. Take a day. Take 3. Dont take a week. Forget everything and rediagnose. Two things happened to me that this helps with. One, sometimes your petcocks...

    Starter clutch went out, witch come to find out is a regular thing with this bike in particular. So as I get the timing marks on the flywheel tdc along with rear cylinder. Then I take the casing off as instructed every single video I’ve seen... After I pulled the casing off the gear that is...
  8. Engine Work
    Im swapping the engine out of an 1100 and putting it in another but i have no clue what to do with the driveshaft. Do i disconnect it where it hooks up to the engine on the ubolt or where it hooks to the back wheel? Ill need to drain the gear oil in the back wheel if i do that right? Or do i...

    I just bought a 2000 1100 classic that had been sitting for 7 years. Before ever trying to start it had the carbs rebuilt, oil and filter changed. New plugs and tires. New tank. When we first fired it up it started blowing gas out the front cylinder. Have went back through the carbs several...

Had new kit installed. Bike still kept carbon fouling plugs. Extremely sooty. Took it back. Was told it needed to be...

    I've been trying to find access to the steering head bolt to maybe tighten it after hearing a worrying clunk, and for the past day I've looked everywhere online in manuals, parts lists, and forum posts and I've convinced myself that it has to be under this chrome cap, maybe I didn't look hard...

    I just picked up a nice 2003 Vstar 1100 with 14k miles on it. Runs great! Didn’t realize they have a starter clutch issue according to what I’ve read. But a post said if you use the correct starting procedure it could prevent starter clutch issues. Hope that’s the case... So my question is has...

    Hey I’m looking at getting a Vstar and I don’t know whether to get the 650 or the 1100 starting out. I feel the 650 would be a better starter but I’ve currently been driving a 1200 Goldwing(Dad’s bike) and I’m looking to get my own soon. The biggest thing is that I wanna take it on 2+ hour...

    Hey everyone new to the forum. I’m currently in the market for a new bike and I’ve pretty much decided on either an 1100 custom or a Kawasaki Vulcan 900 custom. I’m leaning more towards the 1100. My question is aside from the basic wear and tear what should I look for in an 05+ 1100? Is there...
