The 2003 Yamaha Road Star Silverado is a big V-Twin cruiser with muscle to spare.
Sporting an air-cooled V-Twin motor, the Road Star takes advantage of the old technology familiar to Harley riders with a few refinements to make it interesting.
The Road Star motor displaces 1,600 cc, or 98 cubic inches for the American designation. The motor uses pushrods to actuate the valves, but it has four valves per cylinder, an interesting mixture of high and low tech. Fuel is delivered to the cylinders via a single large bore Mikuni carburetor. The Road Star uses a belt final drive similar to the type Harley Davidson uses. To haul the monster rapidly down from speed, it has dual front and rear disc brakes.
The Road Star looks like a million dollars. There is no unsightly plumbing, radiators, or shock absorbers to take away from the look of pure lean muscle. It is a low rider that can hold its own in the looks department with the best of them. The fuel tank holds 5.3 gallons, which gives the Road Star a long cruising range.
The bike's quality is typical for Yamaha; Brilliant factory paint, polished engine cases, and a good amount of chrome. The Silverado differs from the standard Road Star because it has the factory installed windshield, saddle bags, and passenger backrest, with matching chrome studs. This one has Vance & Hines "Longshots" pipes on it, WOW, It sounds, and looks great!!! it also has an actave K&N air filter system on it. Let that mighty mill breathe!!!
How does it ride? Like a dream. The handlebars sit at just the right angle for comfortable riding and the floorboards and heel-toe shifter make it comfortable for your feet as well. The seat is comfortable too.
When you weigh what you get for your money, it is a great bargain. All of our bikes have been serviced, and are ready to ride. A new rear tire has been installed on it too. Check out brennys dot com for this and other bikes, and ATVs!!
