I'm new on here and hoping for some advice from more experienced Yamaha owners. I'm British, but living in Spain. I have owned mostly Kawasaki 1500's for the last 20 years, but I am now looking to move to a large displacement Yamaha. I cannot decide between the XVS1100 V-Star (known as 'Dragstar' in Europe) or the 1300 V-Star. I'm not sure whether the 1300 is just a larger version of the same engine. I know that the 1100 is a single pin crank, so I assume the 1300 is too. Surprisingly, many people seem to prefer the 1100 over the 1300. If anyone can help me with the differences between these two models please.
