  • Almost 40k miles and 18 years of crud in pulley cover...

    Getting bike perfect for sale... Bled brake fluid and replaced with Prestone Dot 4 synthetic, checked all fasteners, and pulled pulley cover to inspect nut and belt etc... Wowsa... I assume the cover was never off due to crud and gravel everywhere. At least the nut was staked over and secure...

    I keep doing stuff to this bike may have to keep it lol....insurance is only $67 year full coverage with $5k extra to cover mods and $250 deductible.
    ​​​​​​The more in get into other Yamahas (have/had Royal Stars, Vstar, Liners, Vmax, xs1100's) I really appreciate the Road Stars as the best bike "overall".

            Purty!
            You strike me as one of the few that would even think to clean up something like this for the next owner.
            Most people just wash the easy parts & send it down the road.

            Make sure you show these pics to the new owner to prove you REALLY take care of your stuff.

          I can just imagine how bad mine looks with 60K unchecked. I'm gonna leave an inappropriate smiley here and disclaim that I am not in my right mind as I write this. But, it's cool.
