I’m new to the forum as well as a new rider. Just purchased a standard 2008 Yamaha VStar 1300 XVS and I LOVE MY BIKE!! I added the saddle bags, passenger backrest with sissy bar & luggage rack as well as temporary windshield and new tires.
I am having the hardest time finding after market windshield hardware and the metal straps to attach an after market windshield I purchased. If you have any suggestions where I can purchase parts or are selling them, please let me know. Thanks in advance 😊

Welcome!
Lots of good info in this forum!

Question... Is your rear tire on correctly? That picture makes it look off kilter.

Ride smart. Ride often!

Welcome from Wisconsin. Your best bet will be to get mounts from the windshield manufacturer. I also agree with the bags mounted wrong.

I think the way I took the pic makes it appear that way...I have rode my bike over 300 miles since having them installed and it rides well.

It's the yellow ink line from it being a new tire

I have a 2015 XVS1300 CT., but, viewing your pic of your rear tire, I would suggest that you double-check the directional arrow on your tire's sidewall to ensure it was mounted correctly. The person mounting it may have confused it w/a Harley-it just doesn't look right.
