2007 Yamaha Road Star Silverado 1700 from United States of America


This bike rides nice and is very, very dependable


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.


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

Doesn't your 2007 Yamaha Roadstar Silverado have a belt? Mine does.

Your bike has a belt not a chain, 5 gears not 6, and if you're rebuilding your clutch already, then you don't know how to use it. For some reason you don't know a lot about your own bike.
