SOURCE: is a 2009 royal star
Vmax is the strongest motor (most HP) , then comes the old style Venture (strong and dependable), then new style Royal Star (most restricted and self destructive). The motors have been so greatly detuned that they have lost some reliability. The carburetors are different, the cams (cam lobe/position) timing is different, the exhaust is restricted, I believe the CDI timing has been changed, and the counter balancer shaft in the main block of the motor has been removed causing more wear ,tear, and vibration in the motor. The spot in the motor is still in the motor for the counter balancer shaft in front of the crank shaft so it can be put in . there may be other changes but these are probably the most critical. It is not cost effective to upgrade a Royal Star unless you have a donor Vmax. I would never recommend the Royal Star for those reasons. I warned a friend off of the bike, he purchased one from a dealer, and with in a week of the purchase of the used unit the motor disintegrated. The only luck he had was that it happened just before the very end of the warranty. Yamaha replaced the entire motor , it would have cost too much to rebuild it. I worked a a Yamaha dealership for 25 years watching the complete evolution of the models with the V-four motor and to this day can not under stand why Yamaha did such a great disservice to the engine and the customers.

Turn key to on, hold select switch up for 10 seconds, and hold reset switch for 5 seconds while continuing to hold select switch. Hours should be flashing. Push select switch down to change hour. Push reset switch to select minutes. Push reset switch to finish.
God Bless and ride safe :-)
