Question about 2005 Yamaha V Star 1100 Silverado

1 Answer

I have a 2003 Yamaha v star silverado 1100 When looking at the back of the front forks you can see a manufactured indention on the back side of the right tube (it actually looks to be a cover or guard over the right tube) so it will not hit the key switch which is located right behind where the fork assembly attaches to the frame. Even though the indention is there if you turn mine hard right it will hit the key and shut the bike off. Has anybody ran into this before or know of a way to fix it?

Have you tried to add some puddy epoxy to the cover or guard over the right tube so that a hard right turn will not hit the key and shut the bike off?

Or is the problem that the cover or guard is hitting the key directly?

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.
