  • Welcome to VentureRider.  What started as a simple site for riders of the Yamaha Venture, Royal Star, Royal Star Venture and the Star Venture has turned into so much more than that.  Though the great Yamaha Venture motorcycles are still our primary focus, we have many members who have eventually moved on to other brands/models or who have stopped riding altogether but still remain members dud to the lifelong friendships they have made on this site.  

    Whether you have questions about your bike, looking for parts, or just wanting to talk motorcycles and riding, this is the place to be.  Our members are friendly and welcoming to all.  My name is Don, Freebird in the forums, and I started this site around 15 or so years ago.  I have met many of our members at our various rallies and meets and some I only know from their posts here on the site but am proud to call them friends, brothers, sisters.  I like to think of this as our club, not MY club.  I try hard to implement features that the members request.  It's not always possible but I do try.

    This is a subscription based club.  You can read messages in most cases but can't post, search, and etc. without becoming a supporting member.  We do offer a free 2 month trial however so you are welcome to check us out before paying the small $12.00 per year dues.  Upon expiration of your trial membership, you will lose the ability to post messages.  At that time, you can click on "Store" and then "Subscriptions" if you wish to continue.  We hope you like what you find here.  We have few rules but the major ones are no religious debate, no political debate, and no "X" rated content, nudity, dirty jokes, etc.  We are a family oriented club so please keep things PG or at least PG-13 rated.

    • Anybody have experience with these?  I put the long horn highway pegs on my 87 a few months ago and am so impressed with the ISO rubber damping I want to explore floorboard options.  FYI my bike came with the floorboard and heel toe shifter, don’t see a reason to want to change it.

      Basiclly it looks like you have the pairs synced up ok You just need to sync the left pair with the right pair. Sequence is not as important as it seems, to simplify, there are three screws involved 1 on the left and 2 on the right and they sit between the carbs set in and slightly below the diaphragm covers. They control the external linkage that connects the carbs together. So starting on the left adjust that screw until both carbs on the left are in sync, at this point ignore the right pair. Next move to the right side you will now see the 2 were on the left there is only 1. adjust the front screw until the the two carbs on the right side are in sync with each other, ignoring the left pair (by your video this is were you are at now ). Finally using the back screw on the right side adjust until the left pair is in sync with the right pair. You may have to repeat the sequence more than once but stick to the sequence you will eventually get there if the carbs are in proper condition. P/S during the process try to maintain idle speed between 900 to 1000 rpm. The adjusting screw for this is a small knob between the the left carbs. Once you have them set burp the throttle a couple times than recheck.

      Thanks! This is basically what I had in mind to perform, heading out shortly to give a whirl

      I am sitting all alone in the chatroom. The a/c is on so the room is comfy unless you are in Colorado where they just had some snow.

      But I am in the chatroom, if you care to drop by. Do not be shy because you do not know me, because after all I don't know you either. So just think how I feel.

      I work afternoons so cannot get on during the week but will try on the weekend.
