2001 Yamaha Road Star Silverado from United States of America
So far not impressed
Cold nature to start and throttle response is terrible.
This scooter feels heavy to handle, and with the factory handle bars, very uncomfortable, I'm hoping that after replacing with swept back riser drag bars, it gets better.
The throttle response is poor. I was told after I jet the carburetor and replace the factory exhaust, it will change drastically. So far, I have to say I'm not impressed.
After buying new bars, jet kit and exhaust and labor, I'll have been better off buying something else, in short, factory equipment not good, after market necessities expensive.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes

And YOU bought the bike anyway?? I have a 1600 Roadstar myself (2002) and "test rode" the bike BEFORE I bought it... Just saying...
