The age old adage holds true here: If it aint broke don't fix it. :)

If the bike is still running good and you have taken good care of it there is no reason to overhaul it. There are many bikes out there that have done well over 100k miles and are still running strong. There have actually been dyno test ran on bikes with over 100k miles and they made better horse power than they were rated at from new. This is attributed to slightly looser bearing clearances with the engine being well broken in.

I would recommend overhaul if you start having problems. These issues would include, low power due to low compression, excessive oil consumption, excessive smoke from tail pipe, excessive fuel consumption. Even then I would recommend good diagnostics and if the issue is found to be internal then I would recommend an overhaul.

Have a 2006 xvs1100 Vstars Classic & just had a service & now have a tapping in it at idle.

Most bikes after so many miles(dont know what that number is for your particular bike)Need a valve adjustment.See how many miles are on bike and find out how many miles you need before you do valve adjustment.the tapping is usally more pronounced when bike idles because of low oil pressure,as long as noise goes away when you rev motor up its just a ajustment.if this noise gets worse then it could be an oil pressure problem.

I just bought a used 2009 Heritage Classic. I currently have a 2004 Deuce. The Deuce has V&H pipes and the Heritage has some slip on pipes. I hear a whirling sound out of the Heritage and not out...

It could be the transmission that you're hearing. Harley changed the way they cut the gears in the '06 models I think. I'm not really sure because the Twin Cam powered bikes are not something I work on. I work on the older bikes. If you're concerned about the noise, take it to a dealer and let a mechanic ride it or if you have a friend that has a bike later than '06, swap bikes for a ride and see what you hear.

Good Luck

My 2005 Yamaha v star 1100 classic had after market Cobra pipes on it when I bought it. I took it in to have it tuned up because of a lot of backfire while in operation. They said the carb kit was in...

I do not agree your bike should run better then it sounds like it is. Just throwing on a set of pipes and a carb kit is not always all that needs done. I ask about the air filter because it seems your motor is getting to much gas and not enough air. The thing I would do next is to get a higher flow of air on the intake side by going to a high flow air filter. A quick check to see if this will help is to temporarily remove the air filter and test ride the bike. If it runs better without the filter this tells you a high flow filter will help. Your bike may need more work than this to get it right on. The other thing you could have done is get someone to jet in the carb to cut down the fuel flow and get the fuel air ratio right on.

8000 mile service for honda vfr800 vtec motorcycle

The bike should be serviced every year even if mileage has not been reached. If your bike is 6 years old and has only had it's 600 and 4,000 mile service it does really need to be done. Coolant and brake fluid require changing every 2 years, if you have been missing this I recommend you get it done. By 8,000 miles you could be looking at worn tyres and brake pads depending on how hard you ride. service would be 2.5 to 3.5 hours and cost about £50 an hour plus vat plus parts.

What should I do to my VN800 classic 1996

I am sure the carbs will need to be cleaned. Sitting that long is not good. I would also recommend doing the plugs for the same reason. Make sure your petcock is turned on also.
