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.
3. More horsepower. 85hp for the
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
from 0-100km/h (62mph) in 4.4sec.
Five time AMA/Prostar Hot Rod Cruiser class drag racing champ.

How to change engine & transmission oil on a Yamaha Wild Star & Road Star.
And how to change the transfer case oil. This little tutorial may be
helpful for those who have a 1999-2004 (newer models may have other specs)
model and not wanting to pay a shop for a pretty easy job that anyone can
This tutorial is published in good faith, but is not meant to be an
complete instructional or a comprehensive guide. I am not a professional
mechanic, and a pro might have done this very differently.

ROADSTAR 1600 LOW CUSTOM SOFTAIL CRUISER AT KIRBY PARK
2002 roadstar 1600 with stage 1 modifications.
Bike has Baron Big Air Kit, Dynajet Carb Kit, and Cobra Speedster Longs Exhaust. Seat is by Pacific Coast Star,
"Potato Chip" Seat. Polished Aluminum
Risers are from Scootworks, Phatrisers II. Forward Controls are from Mapam.
Bike has been lowered 1 3/4" inches from stock using control arms using the
stock shock abosorber. Control arms provided by Pacific Coast Star. Custom
mini LED turn indicators replaced stock. Kuriyakan hand grips. Custom
license plate holder. Bike is fast, and eats Harleys all day long.
THIS BIKE HAS A LONGER WHEELBASE AND LONGER OVERALL LENGTH THAN A HARLEY
FATBOY, HERITAGE SOFTAIL AND ROAD KING. THIS BIKE HAS FOUR VALVES PER
CYLINDER TO HARLEY'S TWO VALVES PER CYLINDER. THIS BIKE HAS AUTO
DECOMPRESSION SOLIENOID WHICH OPENS THE Exhaust VALVES PRIOR TO STARTING TO MAKE
STARTING EASIER AND MORE EFFORTLESS AND LESS WEAR ON THE STARTER. HARLEYS
HAVE NONE. THIS BIKE HAS CERAMIC COMPOSITE CYLINDER LINERS FOR LONGER
CYLINDER WEAR AND BETTER HEAT DISSIPASSION. HARLEYS HAVE NONE.
THIS BIKE RUNS COOLER THAN ANY HARLEY AT IDLE OR AT SPEED DUE TO A LARGER
OIL PUMP THAT IS SET AT A HIGHER PSI TO HARLEY'S 3-6 PSI AT IDLE WHICH
CIRCULATES ONLY ONE QUART OF OIL WHICH MAKES CYLINDERS RUN HOTTER, THUS
REDUCING ENGINE LIFE AND A MISERABLE HOT RIDE FOR THE RIDER.
ROADSTAR HAS GEAR DRIVEN CAMS TO HARLEY'S TWIN CAM WITH A FATAL FLAW,
HARLEY'S USE CHAIN DRIVEN CAMS WITH CHEAP PLASTIC SHOE TENSIONERS THAT WILL
DISENTEGRATE AT ANY TIME AND WILL RUIN THE ENGINE IF NOT CHECKED
THIS IS A FATAL DESIGN FLAW IN ALL TWIN CAM 88'S AND 96 AND 103 HARLEY
