I have a small trailer for my '92 wing, and I have had no trouble with any electronics. I don't have 16 lights on it, (like one of my friends- 82 1100) but just the normal 3. Hope this helps, Rick

I think you will find the tool kit should be behind the panel on the opposite side to the battery cover (Left side?). As far as a manual goes, you can find it chopped up into bite size chunks on the website uploaded there by someone:

Can you comment on how to increase horsepower on a 1998 1300 Tour Cruiser, at a reasonable cost.

This is a question asked about a decade too late, unfortunately. The 1996-1998 Standards, Tour Classics, and Tour Deluxes benefited greatly from Yamahas' decision NOT to offer the VMax in Europe and Asia with V-Boost - leaving non-US customers some 50+ horsepower down. The VMax had the look BUT they were being blown away by any literbike on the market, and, worse yet, couldn't compete with the Honda V65 Magna, a bike similarly styled and engineered, introduced four years earlier, and thoroughly "shaken out".

Aftermarket to the rescue! Big Air kits, cams, titanium lifter buckets, four-into-four low restriction exhausts, high-capacity water, oil and fuel pumps, tunable ignition systems, oversize front and rear shocks and springs - the best part for Royal Star riders was that many of the accessories were available for their bikes, because of the similarities between the 1200cc VMax and 1300cc Royal Star engines and suspensions.

Now, however, the older VMaxes are historic footnotes, and the Royal Stars haven't received anything but cosmetic upgrades since 1999. The market for Royal Star performance parts in the U.S. is mostly nonexistent; the bikes are usually bought for touring or cruising duties, not stoplight-to-stoplight bashes; reliability, comfort and appearance are the Royal Star's strengths.

I owned a 1998 Tour Deluxe, and searched the Internet for the parts I had used to personalize it. The two survivors of the last decade seem to be: Baron Stealth Big Air Kit - $249.95 (, and Dynatek Dyna 3000 digital ignition $289.99 Competition Cams dropped their cams, springs, and lifters, and both Bub and Cobra dropped their 4-into-4 and 4-into-2 exhausts. Some of the exhausts are still available for 99- Royal Stars, but that's no help for you.

Front speakers on my 2007 Yamaha Royal Star Venture Motorcycle

I had this problem on one of my bikes and found that I had a bad ground. Wires can be broken inside the insulation. An ohm meter can be used for that. Do a continuity check on the wiring.

Excessive carbon on spark plugs

Several things come to mind on this. First, rejetting should be done by someone that can do all of the fine tuning also. If the idle mixture screw on the carburetors are still covered, you need to expose them for adjusting. Pull one spark plug and look at the color of the electrode. Black is too rich (too much gas) and white is too lean. You want a lighter brown. Put the plug back in and start the bike. On each cylinder, adjust that idle mixture screw all the way in, being gentle, to the stop. DO NOT OVER TORQUE, YOU JUST WANT TO REACH BOTTOM. Make note of the screw driver orientation and back the screw out 2 turns. This is the starting point. If the bike will no longer idle, adjust the idle screw for about 1000 rpm's. After running the engine for a couple of minutes at idle, do not rev the engine, just shut it off. Pull a spark plug and check the color. Again, you are looking for a light brown. If it is black, turn that carbs mixture screw in 1/2 turn, white, turn out 1/2 turn. Do this for each carb. I know, this is not the quickest way, but it is a sure way of getting the right mixture. It will be time consuming and you might even burn your fingers on the hot plugs.
Now that you have the right mixture, it is time to balance the carbs. I use a Carbtune monometer. Google Carbtune. This is a must to get the bike to run strong and smooth. You will need a service manual for this procedure. Go to Delphi Forums and look up the RSV, Royal Star Venture forum and you will find an electronic version of the service manual there, for free. Hope this helps.
btw, there is not anything around the spark plugs to adjust.
