  • New from the Pac Nothwest.

    Just bought 2001 Roadstar 1600 converted to a Silverado. I also own a 02 Vstar 1100 classic. Love the durability of Yamaha. Plan for my RS is to give it the Old School look with 18" apes, dual exhaust, and hard bags. Sticking to the stock color Beach Sand. All the advice I can get is much appreciated.

    Peace and chicken grease,
    Bigddz

    Four of us just had milkshakes at that little kiosk on the north side of the main drag today about 2:30. We rode from eagle leather across the bridge to Shelton, Elma, Grand Mound, Tenino, Rainier, Yelm and home. if you are looking for folks to ride with, check out the Western Washington Riders Meetup group. It's free to join and there are usually group rides every week ranging from three or four Riders 2 as much as 20. I've met a lot of great folks and riders. My name on there is Steven with an Avatar of my blue Roadstar.

      Sweet, might just do that. My brothers that I ride with live in Anacortes and Brewster. We did a ride/run/camp out to Republic. It was all fun and games till I got called back to work. What can I say there is a new bike to support.....lol.

        On Sunday September 13th, four of us from the road star clinic are getting together to meet each other. Maybe we could even convince some of the folks from Oregon to join us. You should plan to join us. We don't have a time or location yet but it will likely be in the Tacoma area. PM me your phone number if you like so that I can keep you in the loop.

                I hate to sound like a broken record...but, here I go again.
                Get a service manual if you plan on doing some of the maintenance/mods yourself.I recommend the Clymer book for their color-coded wiring diagrams.
                If you're a "hands on" guy, you'll love how well the R/S responds to simple mods. I rejetted my '00 at least a half-dozen times just to see how big was too big.
                So, keep us in the loop & let us know how your projects progress.
                Enjoy the ride !!

                  Welcome from SeaTac. I've got an 04 Silverado. You know what's even better than a Clymer manual? The guys on this list. But get the manual. It helps. And read the intro article in the tech section. It's 90% of what you'll probably encounter. I also recommend the RoadWing rear shock upgrade. Everyone who's done it has regretted not doing it sooner. It's remarkable how smooth our bikes are now.
