Road Star 1600 Fourbidden Header
This is my 2001 Road Star 1600. I was run off the road in Mar of this year
and did $5,000 worth of damage. I was surprised Allstate did not total it
when the cost of repairs came in from the Yamaha shop. Anyway it was all
cosmetic, tank fender, windshield, saddlebag and a few pieces of chrome
here and there. The bike runs great and sounds even better with that
header. Hope you enjoy. Brown

Warrior, better than Harley!!!
Why is it better than Harley?
1. It cost me 6.000,-€ for a used bike and 1.500,-€ to customize it.
7.500,-€ total, 1/2 of the price for a brand new Harley.
2. More cubic inches. 102cui for my Warrior, 96cui for a Harley Twin Cam.

Warrior, 78hp for a Harley Fat Boy.
4. More tourque. 145Nm for the Warrior, 127Nm for the Fat Boy.
5. No pussy balance shaft.
6. No 100 year old technology. Air cooled pushrod 48° V-Twin engine with 4
valves and 2 spark plugs per cylinder, inflexible connected to the frame
for maximum performance. aluminium frame, aluminum swing arm and aluminum
rims for the lightest power cruiser ever build (under 300kg/660lbs). Going
