Question about 2006 Yamaha V Star Silverado

1 Answer

Miles I have a 2007 Yamaha V-Star 1100 Silverado. I have had it 11 months and have put almost 10,000 miles on it. I was wondering how many miles do you think I can put on this bike. I have done regular maintence and changed the oil every 3,000 miles. I will continue to do these things in the future as well. I love my v-star. I just want to know how long I can keep it

As long as you keep taking care of it the bike will last a long time . 10 thousand miles in 11 months is a lot of miles .Do you realize you rode more miles in 11 months than most people do in a decade

I have a service warranty from dealer. I know I need to check valves at some point. I have 13,700 miles on bike. When should valves be checked or replaces?

The warranty may be over in the time it has taken for you to ride nearly 14,000 miles. Aside from that, now would be a good time to let the dealer service the bike. Valve settings should be checked every 5000 to 10,000 miles. Generally, the valves will last the life of the bike. Re-seating the valves may need to be done around 25,000 miles or so, but only if the compression is down or symptoms such as backfires or popping back through a carb come about. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

Maintenance schedule for oil change

Change it when it gets dirty. About 2000 to 4000 miles city driving. About 3000 to 6000 highway/touring miles.

Erratic Sputtering...

Three years with that few miles sounds like a good candidate for bad gas. I would start by taking the carb off and cleaning it really well with carb cleaner.
