Clunk font end 1300 v star


Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Loose neck bearings due to improper preload.
2. Fork springs are worn out or broken.
3. Fork oil lever too low.
4. Loose front fender or brake caliper.

How do I adjust the headlight on a yamaha royal star motorcycle


It it's a Venture, there's a knob on the left side, in front of the fork pivot, turn clockwise to lower the beam, counterclockwise to raise it.

If it's just a Royal Star, the adjustments may be made through holes on both sides, cut low in the headlight rim.

Can you adjust handlebars of yamaha 650 v star 2004 model. right side seems 1/2 inch closer to rider. Gives the illusion of going down road a little sideways. forks appear straight. i am buying this used...


Handlebars can be adjusted up and down, but I know of no way to adjust bars forward and back. I would check the levelness of the forks just to make sure that the motorcycle has not been in a front end collision.

How do you adjust the height of the front suspension on a 2007 1100 v star? mine bottoms out when stopping or bumpy roads.


Height is not adjustable on those. Your only option would to replace the springs in the forks with a higher rate spring, and get better valving to slow down the jounce of the bike.

Adjust spring preload


There are no preload, compression or rebound adjustments on either end of a 1996 Royal Star. The front fork characteristics can be changed by internal modifications to the front fork piston and a change in fork oil weight (stock is 5W), lengthening the spacers immediately beneath the cap bolt, or addition of progressive springs. The rear shock absorber assembly is a unit with no serviceable parts, no modifications are practical. The only aftermarket suspension parts I've found for the 1996-1998 Royal Stars are kits offered by Hyperpro (ECM), they list kits for the front forks SP-YA13-SSA05 and the rear SP-YA13-SSB05; however, since the rear kit is purported to fit all years from 1996 to the present, and the rear suspension was redesigned for the 2002 model year, I suspect that you may find that the rear kit doesn't work at all.
