    Here is something I saved from the past.

    Road Star - Exhaust Gasket Cross Reference
    For some reason this question comes up every few weeks and I never seem to be able to remember the numbers... Well now I know where to find them!
    Fel-Pro 23588 These fit fine on all models without trimin'
    If you can't find the 23588 get the Fel-Pro 23561... These will require a little grinding on the outside circumference as they are slightly oversized. (I got 'em in my bike now)

      The Felpro gaskets are junk and do not last more than a year. They are layered material that come apart at the layers. OEM are solid and be resurfaced a few times before new ones are needed and are only a couple bucks more.

    Once you have the list relatively complete, I will add it to the thread for newbies.

      Exhaust Gaskets
      Caltric 2 Exhaust Muffler Pipe Head Gasket Compatible With Yamaha Road Star 1600 Xv1600 2000 2001 2002 2003 <a class="vglnk" href="https://a.co/d/bKLAH8I" rel="nofollow"><span>https</span><span>://</span><span>a</span><span>.</span><span>co</span><span>/</span><span>d</span><span>/</span><span>bKLAH8I</span></a>


      Despite what the description says, they fit my '05. I just installed them this spring when I changed my exhaust, but so far, so good.

      Drive Belt

      Despite what Dennis Kirk says, this does fit a Road Star. As for durability/longevity, I can't say since I just installed it this spring also. I do know that the price has gone up about $40 since I got mine.

        1702-0487 is the part # for the 4 pack of Parts Unlimited Brake caliper Pistons. Well at least for the 1600 model. Not sure if theres a difference. But they are made in Japan. I have them on my bike along with the parts unlimited seals and I have no issues.

        Designed exactly to OEM specifications by Nissin and Advics, an OEM supplier in Japan

      keep in m ind, we want ACCEPTABLE PARTS, not just cheaper parts. our country is plagued by chineseum and chineseoprene. i would do a belt from a reputable manufacturer, but i would only use jen u wine yamaha caliper rebuild kits , as well as carb rubber. ALL BALLS could have a SUDDEN CASE OF A CHANGE IN SUPPLIER, which could cause all balls to go , well, all nuts, with the steering head bearings, dont have to worry about rubber deterioration. no surprise here, as same yamaha only rubbers are used for outboards as well, cant rely on anything else.

      most here also FROWN on any of the chinese starters, stators, or electronics, am I correct??? due to reliability issues.

      I DO NOT WANT TO HEAR THAT U BOUGHT AMAZON RUBBERS AND THEY WORK JUST FINE, TIA.

        Agree with the electrical components, but the only way to know if something is "acceptable" is to try it. So besides OEM, define acceptable. And I've been using All Balls parts for years with no issues, so to me, they are acceptable.

          its like pilots, the ones that crash and die dont post back that their carb gasket leaked in a flaming crash.

          All balls does not manufacture parts, they get em from somewhere in china/pakistonia,/indiaberg?? and supplier can change,

          the is only one real way to know your are getting quality VITON or neoprene orings is to get em from Yamaha.

          THAT IS WHY WE ARE COMPILING A LIST OF THE GOOD SHIT. NO RUBBERS,
          i dont want to gou out of this world, the way i came into it, on a broken rubber..

          many people swear by this and that, but when u use gen u wine yamaha rubbers, they often last a decade or so. they dont get dried out and stiff , and often can be reused.

          we have people swear by their use of this and that oil, and were seeing cams and lifters fail. those people said, ive been using the same oil for yrs....

          sidebar: yacht sunk at dock in miami, owner had a chinese seacock installed, supposed to be bronze, bronze, alloy traditionally composed of copper and tin. Modern bronze is typically 88 percent copper and about 12 percent tin, the cock was found to have too much f zinc and other impurities, and looked like swiss cheese. owner saved 300 dollars tho, on a 2.5 million dollar yacht.

            The Dyna 3000 comes to mind... I think that should be on the list for sure!

            That $50 part is SO much better than the $600+ for OEM replacement.

        • #10
          Agreed Brad. That had been one of my fears with the FI bike, that expensive pump if i ever needed it. Thanks to one of the forum members we don't have to now, good stuff! I keep saying i'm gonna buy one just to have on hand since they are pretty cheap, but i haven't yet...

            Hopefully a part you never need.
