Star Roadliner: Lowered and -

The STAR Roadliner is a pretty cool machine, for what it is.

Has balls too, they'll leave that leading brand for dead in terms of performance.

Some owners of this machine, as well as others, like to save a buck or two and install accessories themselves, or have a friend help them.

Such as lowering kits, seriously, how hard can it be?




From what I heard, the kit was not that hard to install -



Too bad they did not check the rear tire clearance -

The owner found out about that at 70MPH

That's not a Roadliner.

THIS is a Roadliner:



The Roadliner has more of a sportbike inspired frame and swingarm, that is probably a Road Star in your post. Jim

Probably so, I was just reading the tank and guessing, to be honest.

Getting ready to post up a ton of STAR posters, the custom STAR machines, dealer posters, I'm sure I'll learn something from them.

Anyway, thanks for the clarification.

Yeah yeah yeah - here is one of the huge posters, almost 6' across, it is a Roadliner "S"



Sorry about the pic quality, I'll try to make sure the eBay picture is as close to perfect as I can get it.

Other posters are smaller, but there are several of those big ones as well, starting at only $29.99 (plus shipping and handling)......



Roadliner, Road Star, Stratoliner, Raider, I'm learning.......

They are possibly the coolest VTwin cruisers available now, if you're into that kind of a thing.

Wish me luck on the posters.

Owned a Roadstar for a year...cool cruiser.

Much too heavy though, and I got quite tired of the 68 horsies trying to push 700lbs down the road as quickly as I wanted.

The Roadliner/Stratoliner is even heavier, although it's got the extra 100ccs worth of motor.

Cruiser-wise, go with either a Warrior or Raider. The Warrior has the R* motor (hopped up), and the Raider has the Roadliner/S-Liner motor (hotted up).

EDIT - yes, the first pic is a Roadstar, I had the same one, just not that customized.

Back in the FZ1 fold - '08 Gen2 in red. She's sexy, but she's got a major cork up her a$$. Mod time begins soon...

Roadliner and Raider have the same engine and specs related to HP and Torque..there is no hotted up.

"The Roadliner spun the Borla dynamometer to 87.1 horsepower at 4,700 rpm, and an impressive 107.2 lb-ft of torque at a very lazy 2,200 rpm!"

This is typical of both bikes as they are rated at 90HP by Yamaha, the Raider is about 20 lbs heavier than the Roadliner though.
