I will love it, i had other bikes before, I started on a vulcan 900 custom (loved it, super light and fun), then i had a blue 07 Vstar 1300, then a Vulcan 1700(top heavy and very uncomfy), then an FZ-07 (dangerous bike, way too much wind for highway and i dont want the full face), then a Honda Interstate (good for coffee shop to coffee shop, maybe day trips, but thats it) and now another Yammy 1300. Best bike ever, most reliable, with the rstd bars are a dream to ride, no wine in the 5th on the highway, enough pull for whatever i need, perfect when you want to play sportbike, lots of aftermarket support, belt, fat front tire, good dealer network in NA.
The 950 is a sweet bike, almost perfect, but 2 things I did not like: 1 - air cooled and 2 - cant lean too much on it, it scrapes way earlier than most bikes. Sometimes I get into a more aggressive riding mood and that is a deal breaker for me. The Vulcan 900 can lean, I was able to put the pipes on the ground in a turn with it.
I'm Montikore. I picked up my first bikes last year, a pair of matching 97 XVZ1300s. One is my daily, bobbed out (work in progress. my rear fender looks like crap, but i'm not a pro fabricator so it is what it is ahahah) and robin's egg blue and my project bike is still...
Bike will not start. Replaced the starter, ignition coils, ICM, new battery, all lights are working. When I try to start it the starter turns, but it sounds wierd, got NO SPARK. Any ideas? Please help.
I just became the proud owner of a 2004 Vstar 650 Classic with 9500 miles. I'm an old/new rider. Spent lots of hours riding dirt bikes, as a kid, but hadn't ridden for years. Now I'm trying to get comfortable with a different kind of wheels
