The brakes on this machine is not normally that sensitive. Check the Front Brake pads and make sure the Calipers aren't leaking Brake fluid on them. Brake fluid on Brake pads makes them VERY grippy.

Hi, Joe and the usual suspects are:
1. Improperly loaded motorcycle. Non-standard equipment on the front end such as heavy radio receivers extra lighting equipment or luggage tends to cause unstable handling.
2. Incorrect air suspension pressure.
3. Damaged tires or improper front-rear tire combination.
4. Irregular or peaked front tire tread wear.
5. Incorrect tire pressure.
6. The shock absorber is not functioning normally.
7. Loose wheel axle nuts. Torque to recommended specifications.

Is there anything i should worry about when adding brake fluid to my 1100 v-star silerado? should the bike be held straight or on the stand?

I would leave it on the stand and just fill it up to the sight glass marks. Just make sure you don't over fill and spill it on any of your paint. If brake fluid gets on your paint, wash it off with clean water as soon as you can because it has been known to damage painted surfaces.
