I purchased this a month ago and have put just over 800 miles on it.
I have installed the Shark 100w stereo, highway pegs, wind wing air deflectors and the HD licence plate light bar. BTW we are lovin it.
I added the leather myself overtop of the grips that came on the bike with supplies from Tandy Leather.
We live just outside of Detroit and My 1st day of riding (310 miles) was back roads to & from Lansing. Put another 160 miles driving it on a work day (going from job to job checking on my crews), Misc milesjust going here and there, and another 180+ miles yesterday going to Graduation parties and visitng family.
The first trip riding solo I was averaging 49mpg. Riding 2up I'm not sure as I started having mechanical problems, As it ends up I had to change the fuel filter. Totally full of sludge. Must have happend when I put onto reserve/ It was odd because I rode it Wednesday afternoon, then Friday runs like crap! Ran strong all day yesterday though.
This is my Royal Star. It's a 96 Tour Classic. The first picture is what it was when I got it in November of 2011 with just over 15k miles on it. Since then I have changed the exhaust to a 4 into 2 with Samson mufflers, added saddlebags with a trailer hitch integrated into the saddlebag mounts (made by me), put a trunk on a home made rack, and put on a batwing fairing (picture coming soon). The last picture is the trailer I built for it.
Edit to add a new picture of the bike as it is now.
I have a 97 Royal Star, this pic was taken last year when I test drove it. The owner told me the reserve was full, this was me completely empty 3 miles from his house! Bought it anyway and am super happy!!!
I bought a pair of 97's RS last year, and i absolutely love them. 1 i bobbed out and is my daily and the other one is my project bike. I'm wanting to have some fun with the engine on the project bike but I am having a hell of a time finding performance parts or much...
I have a 99 Road Star and cannot get the seat to unlock to get to battery. I know how the cable works but cannot seems to get to it. Can't be the first to have this problem. How do I get the seat of so I can get to the release and fix it.
My last cruiser bike was a Yamaha Raider. Loved the power of that bike and the fork angle but wanted something a little more comfortable. The 1300cc v4 design in this bike is great! I can rev it more than my raider, seems the gears are almost longer too. I don't miss the raider surprisingly...
Hello all! I have a 98 xvz1300a with 53k on the clock! I absolutely love my bike but, after filling up the tank and replacing the gas cap fuel comes pouring out of the top! I am at a complete loss as to why this is happening. I know that I’m not overfilling it! I’ve replaced the cap with a new...
