2007 Yamaha Road Star Silverado 1700

Summary:

This bike rides nice and is very, very dependable

Faults:

First, the main drive chain went at 15,000 miles. What was explained to me is that the chain had stretched. I didn't have the extended warranty, so I had to foot the bill for the whole thing.

Second, at 20,000 miles I am now rebuilding the clutch, as I get ready for this season of riding. At the end of the riding season last year, it started to slip in the upper gears.

I do love this motorcycle. I have modified it a bit with a Hypercharger and new exhaust, but I am not happy with the two problems I just described above at so low mileage.

MAKE SURE YOU PURCHASE THE EXTENDED WARRANTY!

General Comments:

This bike rides well, handles well and is good for around town, across state or across country, with the 6th gear as an overdrive.

If you want more get up and go, change the stock air filter and exhaust.

The stock seat was very uncomfortable with my wife on the back. Changed that out as well.

Long legs? Highway pegs.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
