Yamaha Road Star description
2004 Yamaha Road Star Silverado, CRUISER - The brawny Road Star Silverado (and its Road Star sibling) thundered onto the cruiser scene six years ago, taking it by storm with its sheer size, classic retro styling and heaps of torque. But then, it's hardly a mystery why this belt-driven mega-machine made such a huge impression. And now its home to a gigantic new 102 cubic-inch air-cooled, long-stroke, OHV 48° twin engine that pumps out huge amounts of torque barely off idle for brisk acceleration and fantastic overall cruising performance. Additional engine mods include redesigned valve system, camshafts, rocker arms, air induction system, cooling fins and beefed up clutch. Bottom line...more power and performance. An all-new lightweight and high-strength final drive belt provides long life, quiet operation and better acceleration. All-new brakes featuring dual 298mm front disc brakes with 4-piston calipers (that come straight off the YZF-R1) and 320mm single disc rear brake for strong stopping power. Short and long range rider comfort is supreme thanks to wide, swept-back, 1"-diameter, rubber-mounted handlebars, restyled touring rider seat that's 40mm wider, a reshaped passenger seat and full-size floating-type rider floorboards with new rubber inserts. And when you're wrapped in a swank casual touring package - large, adjustable windscreen, leather saddlebags, studded seats and backrest, whitewalls - as gorgeous as it is all-powerful, people just get plain ecstatic. Once you slide your leg over one, you'll know exactly how they feel.

Last winter I managed to fill a void in my life when I stumbled on a very reasonably priced Yamaha RD350LC. It was a tad scruffy, had the wrong exhausts but most importantly it was blue and white with all numbers matching. I had the usual euphoria when the deal was done but I underestimated how much pleasure this particular purchase would continue to deliver another eight months down the line. The difference with this old bike is, instead of just taking it for the occasional ride I was talked into doing a full nut and bolt restoration. Having never taking a bike apart completely before, initially it was quite daunting but I soon found the RD is easy to work on so it turned into a truly satisfying experience. I’ve had some help from LC enthusiasts with the rebuild, however, the stripping, sourcing and organising was a total labour of love. And call me sad but it has made me bond with this bike like no other which only adds to the feel good factor. The bike cost £1800 and I’ve spent around £1000 but I reckon my mint Elsie is now worth a fair bit more. I fancy rejuvenating a Fizzy next time but there’s lots of other cheap 70’s and 80’s winter projects out there so why not have a go yourself?Tue, 25 Sep 2012
Monster Energy Graves Yamaha‘s Josh Hayes has clinched his third consecutive AMA Superbike title with his record 14th win of the season at Homestead-Miami Speedway. The win in the second race of the Miami round was the 31st of Hayes’ career. It followed a rare misstep in Race One which saw Hayes crashing after clipping a curb on the third lap.Fri, 24 Jan 2014
Good news for those saddened to hear the Yamaha Champions Riding School would not return to Miller Motorsports Park in 2014: the school is back, now operating from New Jersey Motorsports Park. The change in venue doesn’t come without a slight change in the instructor lineup. Nick Ienatsch and Ken Hill will still lead the way, joined by Mr. Daytona himself, Scott Russell, but a new addition to the star-studded instructor lineup has also been added: none other than Larry Pegram.
