2015 Yamaha Road Star Silverado S www.Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

/// Engine
• 1,670cc (102 cubic inch), air-cooled, long-stroke, OHV, 8-valves, 48° V-twin powerplant pumps out lots of low-rpm torque. Max torque occurs at 2,500 rpm.
• 4 valves per cylinder provide optimum breathing efficiency while 2 spark plugs per cylinder ensure complete combustion for maximum power output.
• Hydraulic valve lifters driven by twin crankcase-mounted camshafts deliver exceptional torquey performance and reduce maintenance needs.
• Twin crankcase-mounted camshafts activate the valves via hydraulic valve lifters and pushrods.
• Traditional pushrod valve actuation keeps overall engine height down for a lower centre of gravity. Pushrod tubes are chromed, adding to the beauty of this high tech, yet traditional, engine.
• Large-diameter, forged pistons offer great durability and lighter weight for fast engine response.
• Large bore ceramic composite-plated cylinders provide uniform heat dissipation, reduce weight and reduce friction.
• Cooling fin thickness is optimized for maximum heat dissipation, thereby eliminating the need for liquid cooling, maintaining that traditional clean, air-cooled engine appearance.
• Electronic fuel injection with TPS features a single 40mm throttle body with dual injectors (one for each cylinder). The throttle position sensor is linked to the ECU and supplies info about throttle opening so the ECU can adjust ignition timing for optimum engine performance at all rpms.
• High-capacity easy access air intake system with paper type air filter provides maximum breathing for optimum performance.
• Smooth-shifting, 5-speed transmission with 5th gear overdrive delivers outstanding cruising performance and reduced rpms at highway speeds.
• Clean, quiet belt drive system is extremely low- maintenance and simplifies customization. Special narrow design drive belt and sprockets (front and rear) provide lightweight performance and exceptional durability.
• Dry sump lubrication system with handy, spin-on type oil filter, creates a lower centre of gravity by helping reduce overall engine height. The oil tank is located under the seat.
• Large-flywheel crankshaft delivers superior, low-rpm torque and that special V-twin “pulse” feel.
• 2-piece heel-and-toe shifter adds versatility and enhances the overall cruising experience. The 2-piece design allows the rider to individually adjust front and rear portions to suit foot size or remove the rear section if not desired.
• Electric starting system features solenoid-activated auto-decompressor for easy, no-hassle starting.
• Maintenance-free transistor controlled ignition (T.C.I.) provides a hot spark for sure starts and strong engine performance.
• 2-into-2 exhaust system features beefy, staggered, dual shotgun pipes that produce a soulful V-twin exhaust tune. Muffler replacement is fast and simple, if desired.
• Lots of high-quality chrome engine covers
• Air Induction System (A.I.S.) reduces exhaust emissions (CO + HC).


/// Chassis/Suspension

• Spring preload-adjustable, single-shock, rear link suspension lowers centre of gravity for better handling and a plush ride. Rear wheel travel is 110mm (4.3″).
• Rear shock is horizontally mounted under the engine and tucked out of sight, providing that classic, hardtail look, while also maintaining a low centre of gravity.
• Dual 298mm front disc brakes feature ultra rigid, monoblock, 4-piston calipers with chrome “buttons” accenting the outer piston covers.

• Passenger floorboards provide roomy comfort and reduce vibration.
• Deeply valanced steel fenders combine timeless styling with rugged durability and easy customization.
• Nine-spoke, cast aluminum wheels not only reduce weight and maintenance (no spokes to tighten or clean), but they also add a sportier styling image to the Road Star Silverado S.
• 18 litre fuel tank provides an exceptional cruising range. The FI electric fuel pump is located inside the tank. Fuel tank seam is hidden for that clean, custom look.
• Wide, swept-back, 1″ diameter handlebars minimize vibration on the rider’s hands thanks to being rubber mounted. The one-piece handlebar clamp is beautifully chrome-plated.
