        I had an 02 classic, bought it brand new, had slip on slash cut mufflers and had jet kit put in it from dealership after I hit 400 miles. The sound was good, and it was a little sluggish for taking off but when the jet kit was installed it really made the bike come to life and respond a hell of a lot better. Seemed like a totally different bike. I would still have it today if it wasn't for the divorce.

            what is the power like compared to say a v star 1300...i had a 1300 for most of a summer and thought it was sluggish, especially with the wife on board...the '07 roadstar with the v&h short shots was the quickest even up against the '08 roadstar with fuel injection...

              I'm looking at vstar 1100s cuz my knees getting old. Need another for the stable. Did they ever solve the starter issue?

                I don't believe they ever did, if by that, do you mean did Yami ever make some changes by a certain model year... I don't believe they did, but someone else may know better. The one I owned 'spun' on the next owner I'd sold it to. I saw my old bike in a shop and inquired as to why it was there. It was then I learned about the starter spin issue, and what it was going to cost to fix it... on him, not me, fortunately.

                  They did something to the starter in like 03 must have put a spring in the starter to counteract the rotational forces but I'm not sure that it really solve the design problem

                    I need all the carb o-rings and rubber for 08 1100 vstar classic. Is there a good kit? Or do just use OEM ?

                      You guys ever hear of sticking valves on a 1100 V star?
