We had a great time at Sturgis. But a little trouble. My new 1100 V-star only made it to Council Bluffs Iowa on the trip to Sturgis. It started making a tick, then it lost a cylinder. After we rented a truck and got it to the yamaha dealer in Council Bluffs,he said i broke a camshaft. lost oil pressure. We left the bike with him and I rode on the back of Jay's bike to Sturgis. We had a great time. I got a lot more pictures this way and he let me cruise down Main Street Sturgis a couple of time on his Roadstar. i didn't get to "ride my own" through the black hills, but still had a good time. We rode back to Council Bluffs and rented a truck to take my poor sick bike home. She's still sitting in the garage. No one has ever heard of a 1100 breaking a camshaft. Even the Star tech rep at Sturgis. Everyone is interested in why it did this. I'm heartbroken. this bike has given me a lot of trouble. I've already replaced the battery and starter. We haven't had time to tear her down to see why this happened. So now I'm riding my son's 81 Kaw, 440 LTD, until we can afford to fix her. Bummer.
Anybody ever have this same problem
