Real Glad i found this Forum.


Deciding between

1 Yamaha Raider

3 Yamaha Bolt


......would like to know which is the quietest ( of these 3 ).


I'm going to be looking at a used Raider tomorrow.
So that'll be my first time hearing one.

Hi Mike, welcome to the forum. My younger brother lives in Upland.
I'm thinking the Bolt will be the quietest if it's bone stock. Keep us posted on what you decide on, and glad you joined us.

Welcome to the fun house Mike. What are you going to be using the bike for? Local commute, coffee runner, weekend trips ... If the bike still has its OEM exhaust, it should be nice and quiet with just enough rumble to it. I had V+H classic II on my 1100 and if I wanted to could make them bark real loud otherwise, they would be just loud enough. That being said, I grew tired of them and now that I ride a Stratoliner, I really enjoy the stock exhaust on it.

Let us know what you got eh.

Ride safe and keep it shiny side up.

If you are comparing the bikes and all have un modified stock exhaust they will be pretty close. Now if they all have aftermarket exhaust it depends on the exhaust. Why would you want a quiet bike?

HI

Was looking at the Stryker and Raider on YouTube videos this morning.

The Stryker seems to sound NICE ! .....whereas, the raider just sounded like a regular ol' motorcycle.

They all 3 seemed to have acceptable sound levels. ( just don't want a loud bike )


NOw to the next issue,

I'd like to get a 2016 Stryker. Here in California, i believe that $11,800 out the door, is going to be the best price..


What are the color Options ( for a new Stryker ) ?


When i go to the Yamaha website ..i only see the Blue.
When i called Chaparral ( San bernardino CA ) ..they said they have it in a Matte Grey and the deep, dark blue ( as seeable on the yamaha website i presume )

Was informed that there is no Black available for 2016.


Secondly, what cargo storage options are there ? I can't find a website yet that shows all the Yamaha official accessories for the stryker.

Storage on all three is none. That is from factory tho. On the Stryker you can buy throw overs with brackets. You can buy easy brackets and hard bags too. I have some leatherman throw overs. I only put them on when I need them. Do not buy the yamaha bags as most everyone have had them break and leak. I know because I ride a Stryker. If you do get a Stryker join the www.yamahastarstryker.com forum. You can see the brackets on the picture
