Nice thing about the Roadliner, if a car does hit you, it'll probably bounce off with major damage.

Get the vin number off the front downtube that the steering triple tree mounts to. Call a Yamaha dealer with the vin # and they can tell the year, engine size and model of bike.

SOURCE: 2000 yamaha vstar 1100 custom. starter problem?

I had the same problem 2001 XVS1100 Custom
this is a starter issue Over time the starter on this bike twists when its under a load.
Look at the two bolts holding the starter on if they are not straight across then its twisted. turn starter back in line with a pair of big channel locks and try to start this should do the trick if this works i would recommend taking the two bolts out and bend them back straight or replace and reinstall starter this should fixya problem

Hope this helps ...............Jimmyfixya

1998 Yamaha Virago 1100 can someone tell me what the serial numbers mean and what series of Virago 1100 that I have and how can I tell by my serial numbers

Hi Monty, That what you have shown is the engine number and not VIn number. The VIN number is usually on the frame of the motorbike at around the front side either left r right side.

Hope this helps, once you get those numbers it will be easier to determine the full details of your bike. Hope this answer helps!

WHY would I have oil in where my flywheel and coil

I haven't looked at a XS 1100 for many years, but my first guess is a leaking crankshaft oil seal. 1979 is a long time ago, 35 years to be exact, and if your bike is still running well, it deserves to have a leak here and there.
If the oil leak is not too much, keep an eye on the oil level in the engine and enjoy the ride, else you have to pull off the coil packs and flywheel (probably dry clutch assembly) to get to the oil seal. The best would be to have a bike shop look at it if it really bothers you.
Keep the air in your hair, your feet on the grass and the bears off your rear (view mirror). Oh yes, put a piece of rag on the floor under the engine when you park it!

Need to buy carb rebuild kits I have a 1980 yamaha 1100 xs but I'm not sure after that where do I find the machine number like f;g;h; lg;l,etc.

An easy one. Yamahas made in 1980 were all G models.
They made two versions of the XS-1100. A cruiser style & a standard type.
To get absolutly model spacific for ordring your carby parts, best get your engine & frame numbers first. Use them when ordering parts to increase your chances of getting the right ones.
Frame numbers on bikes (at least hear in Australia)are located on the steering neck(at the very front of the frame-written on a plate or stamped in).
Sometimes they are to be found on the L/H or R/H lower frame rail.
As for Engine numbers(road bikes)- They can be found on the engine case- usually R/H side near top of clutch cover.

I do hope that this was some how helpful

Can you tell me the size motor and year from this serial number 4R0-00l044

No but your local Yamaha Dealer should be able to from the vin Number. It is generally on the Bike Label, or punched into the frame in several places, in some countries it is also on the registration disc.

I need to set the cam timing on a 1979 yamaha sx 1100 where are the marks picture plese.or where can i purchace the repair manual

An old XS 1100,
ye now theres a classic good old bike(my long lost love was a Z1R II)
This bike is unusual in it runs clockwise(from left) with its cam chain tensioner at the front.The marks are on the cam sprockets. Plus the crank position needs to be top dead centre compression on number 1 cylinder.Crank position ID marks, lets see, If I remember correctly are behind the L/H engine cover.
As for your manual(a motorcycles&owners best friend) were available aftermarket.Clymer is one brand and Haynes the other.To locate one try your local accessory dealer, the net/web/e-bay or try the classifide section of you favourate bike magazine(usually at the back).
Hope this is of some help

I just bought my 2004 Yamaha 1100 and was told it was the Silverado. Now I am not sure because there are different 1100 models that look a like such as the custom, classic etc.. It is red and gold with...

Look on the title to the bike and write down the VIN (Vehicle Identification Number). Then call a Yamaha dealer and give them the number. They can decode the number and tell you exactly what you have. If you don't have the title yet, give them the frame number > The VIN is the frame number. Could you take a moment and rate my answer? Thanks!
