I am new to Yamaha...should be getting a 2002 Yamaha V Star 1100 Silverado on Saturday! Is there anything I should be looking for before I make the purchase? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Welcome from where ever i may be :D

From some past conversations i've heard while lurking around here i would say: "Ask the dealer/owner about 1)starter clutch issues 2)lubrication of the rear drive spline/shaft 3)why am i so handsome?:D"

BTW, i have 2005 1100 and haven't had these issues but i've heard others have :confused:

Be sure to ask tehm to take a pic of it and post it on here. The book of newb will be most helpfull to guide you in this endeavour. It is also written that " wht the guys said above should just about cover it".

Welcome to the 4M.
Will they share the past service records for this bike with you?
I'm guessing the bike is a little young to have served. Although, i have heard of 17 year olds being accepted into the Army with parents consent/permission :confused:
