2006 Yamaha Road Star Silverado from United States of America
22000 miles, drive pulley and middle shaft both stripped. The pulley only fit less than halfway onto the shaft. I had to replace the middle shaft and pulley. YAMAHA installed a 2005 middle shaft in my bike. YAMAHA SAYS THEY NEVER HAD THAT PROBLEM - NOT TRUE.
Also the engine makes a knocking noise; it drives me crazy.
YAMAHA CO. SUCKS.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I ride in a club where quite a few members ride the bike you have, and would have to agree with Yamaha. These riders have never had a drive train problem, and 2 of the riders are topping 100,000kms. I would say you had a faulty part to start with, or it was incorrectly installed.
