I have a 2016 1300 V Star Tourer and I am trying to get the exact model of it for ordering parts, etc. I can't find a good VIN decoder that will identify the model. XVS1300, XVS13AC and the list goes on. Anybody know of a good Yamaha VIN decoder link?
There are many times when buying a used bike the owner's manual is not included in the sale. There's great info in the manual to safely maintain your bike. The second recommended manual to obtain is the repair manual. The repair manual is needed to complete any repair on your bike properly...
Noticed this was your first post. If you post an introduction in the New Members Section we can get to know you and your bike.
Personally, I check the data on VIN Check and make a vehicle history lookup. You can also find it on the inner frame or jamb of the front door on the driver's side, the dashboard at the base of the windshield (on the driver's side), or on a plate attached to the area on the chassis.
