  1. I have a 2009 royal star touring deluxe and noticed that the swing are when on my lift has about a .003-.005 side play on the swing arm. The factory manual says there is not supposed to be any. Has anyone had this issue and if so what is the proceedure to take the side play out.
  2. I have a 2009 Royal star touring deluxe and am currently servicing it and found the reear swing arm has some end play in it. The end play has about .003-.005 side play on it. Is this a concern and if so what is needed to take this play out. Does the exhaust have to be removed to get access to the through bolt.
  3. I have found a 2009 RSV with a just installed Hannigan Trike kit here locally, they are asking $21,900.00 for it, yet they have a 2006 RSV with the same for 27,900.00. They are closed today, but I am thinking that the 21,900.00 is a typo. If not I may be jumping on it. Couple of pics attached. [ATTACH]70573[/ATTACH][ATTACH]70574[/ATTACH]

  5. i picked up my brand new 2009 rstd from the dealership on Friday. 15 km into my initial ride I pulled up at a red light when the light changed all of a sudden I had no gears what so ever. Although it is in deed under warantee i would love to here from the membership as to how I should handle this situation. needless to say I am very disapointed.
  6. [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TN3MFLwlsEg&feature=player_embedded]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TN3MFLwlsEg&feature=player_embedded[/ame] One of the oldest and most respected motorcycle races in history has been the Isle of Man TT (Tourist Trophy) race. The race is held on the Isle of Man and was part of the Motorcycle Grand Prix World Championships until safety concerns caused it’s removal from the series in 1977. To preserve the race’s status, the Isle of Man TT races became part of the TT Formula 1 Championship from 1977 to 1990. From that point on the Isle of Man Department of Tourism conducts the race as part of the Isle of Man TT Festival. The race started in 1907 and has always been a time trial format on public roads. Between 1907 and 2009 (at the end of 2009 TT races period) there have been 237 deaths during official practices or races on the Snaefell Mountain Course.
  7. My 2008 Venture next to a friends 2009 Ultra Glide Classic. Mike
  8. Just noticed that the colors section under venture history is lacking the last couple of years. It ends at 2009.
  9. We're only going down for the day but plan to leave as early as we can get everything ready as it's a three hour drive going full out on the highway all the way down. :cool10: If anyone else is going or would like to meet us partway or anything like that, drop me an email or post here or call us (number on profile). Weather's looking great for tomorrow. Haven't been since 2009 so hopefully it'll be a blast. For anyone not sure what Wharf Rat Rally is, here's a link: http://www.wharfratrally.com/2010schedule/Home.aspx And here's a link to some pics we took in 2009 when we went: http://s29.photobucket.com/albums/c253/bjdobson/Motorcycle%20pics/Sep%205%202009%20Wharf%20Rat%20Rally/

    Oberlin Inn

    I just made reservations at The Oberlin Inn for Friday Night. I figured I would try them again. I liked the over hang for parking the bikes. The price is $89.95 for the Venturerider group. The same as it was in 2009. It will be here before we know it. In case you want to know. Oberlin Inn 7 North Main Street Oberlin Ohio 44074 1-800-376-4173
  11. This is the first time I have actually SEEN counter-steering in action. Who knew you could ride a motorcycle in so many ways? [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=No_vqA2A3KY&feature=related]YouTube - Freestyle Streetbike WM 2009 Zürich, CP Chris Pfeiffer, World Championship[/ame]
  12. I currently have 2009 WW Autoroute DEM Basemap NR 3.00 Software version 4.00 GPS 2.90 DSP 2.40 Text 4.00 Voice 2.60 I cannot find anything newer. Garming says all but maps are current. I find it hard to believe that 2009 stuff is current but hey you never know. Anyone have any additional knowledge of current software or firmware for this unit?? Also lifetime maps seems like a good deal at 90 bucks. Thoughts??
  13. Looks like I will be traveling to Phoenix in the next week or so to pick up my new 2009 Venture S, I am finalizing the deal as I type. I'm looking for information on a stealership or maybe some available garage space to do the 600 mile service, (oil change, rear diff fluid). I will be on my way back to West By God Virginia, a total of about 2200 miles. If anyone has information about a convenient stealership close to the interstate near there, please share that information with me. As is the same if anyone has the ability and desire to host/help for the change, that of course would be much appreciated. I am mechnaically inclined and do all of my own service, but that of course is when I have the facilities to do such. Thanks again for reading, and sooner then planned I am gonna be the proud owner of a 2009 seashell. Chris Parkersburg, WV
  14. Heard today from K&N, Yamaha will not relase other Venture until 2012 or 2013. They showed a 2011 (Blue/black) in their dealer book. This must be left overs from 2009. I wonder what Yamaha is up to now for the touring market.
  15. I wanted to post a good comment about dealer Turn1 in Plymouth, Indiana. They are a dealer for Yamaha, Honda, Suzuki, and Victory (and Polaris). I had tire troubles with my old Bushtec trailer on the trip to Potato Creek. After several stops and tele calls elsewhere trying to find new tires and tubes, Turn1 took care of me. They had tubes in stock, and ordered a pair of new tires for me which they installed on Thursday as I was leaving the International Rally. They were knowledgeable, and good to work with, and made time for me while I was on the road. And their prices seemed quite fair. I'll point out that they have a pair of new-old stock Ventures on the floor. A 2009 Red/Black, and a 2008 Silver S model. And a used 2009 Seashell/Raven. Also having a Victory factory truck demo days on July 30-31 which I wish I was nearby to take advantage of. http://turn1.com/
  16. I decided to put the HD antennas on the Venture. I thought it would look better. It really does. I made these out of aluminum stock and found some bolts to fit. If I can figure out how to make photos attach I'll put them here. I'm going to a custom bike shop and have the part made from steel and chromed. And also have them get me some chrome bolts and star washers. If anyone would like to do the same conversion, we can get a break on the custom work. I'll wait a couple of weeks to get a price. The antennas are 2009 HD, CB and AM/FM/WB. They cost $30.00 each. It has to be 2009 or later because the 2008 and older do not have the load in the antenna. Rich
  17. It's time to sell my 2009 RSV. I've listed it in the classifieds. Thanks
  18. Ladies, The 2009 Rally has a goal of making sure that there is something for everyone. What kind of events, activities, games, or prizes would you like to see, do, experience, etc. We want to make sure that everyone has a good time at the rally and need your input to help us out with our planning. Guys, What kinds of activities would your wife enjoy being a part of during the rally?
  19. OK...I printed off Freebird's excellent instructions for splitting the fairing...and then as I was reading over them, I noticed these were published in 2006. I have a 2009 Venture WITH THE LIGHT BAR BRACKET, so I know I won't have to remove my lights...but are there ANY other changes on splitting the fairing from the 2006 models up to the 2009 models? Any MORE tips or things to look out for. I am splitting my fairing so I can install (actually replace), the wiring harness for my Garmin 665 GPS. Anything, TIPS, TOOLS, or WARNINGS would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Wally
  20. If you like warplanes, not only will you be awed by the great photos of Edwards, turn on your speakers and click on the Play Button on the LH side under some of the photos for sound effects... Also, click on the AIRSHIP buttons at the end, you will be treated to a wonderful ride over the Bay area AND some nice detail shots of the ship itself. (It’s the small photo – bottom right.) I have to admit I spend nearly one whole morning with my face glued to the Monitor screen....I really enjoyed this one and hope you do too! WARNING: Once you click on the website be prepared to wait. There is a big file downloading Check out 2009 Edwards AFB Open House Click here: 2009 Edwards AFB Open House
  21. Can a tank bag be put on a 2009 RSV?
  22. I know we just about beat this to death, but it is a VERY annoying sound. My question is that can I ASSUME that my 2009 already has the "I" Basket clutch assembly installed? Or is it possible I could still have an earlier clutch basket in the bike. Thanks, Wally
  23. Does anyone out ther have a passenger backrest pan to fit a 2009 Royal Star Venture trunk? Doesnt matter if cushion is torn or in good shape. I recon anything 1999 to 2009 will work. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  24. I thought this was worth sharing and pulled it off another site… Please don't drink and drive. [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z2mf8DtWWd8]YouTube- TAC 2009 Christmas Campaign TV ad - 20 Anniversary retrospective montage "Everybody Hurts"[/ame]
  25. A very good friend asked me to ride his brand new Vintage Chief from the dealer to his house. He is recuperating from a leg ingury. He already has three bikes (2005 Triumph Bonneville, 2009 Harley Ultra and a 2006 Venture. This was a treat for me, and the bike is awesome. The color light green and cream with distressed leather seat and saddle bags looked great. The twenty mile trip in the cold could have been better, but I survived and it is a great machine.
