US MPG Fuel Consumption: 42 mpg; Fuel Consumption ± 18kpl/51mpg(Imp)

60 degree, fuel injected, V-twin

Windshield, backrest & saddlebags

The V Star 1300 Tourer comes standard with hard leather-wrapped sidebags, passenger backrest and windshield. The touring package is designed from the factory so it’s styled consistently with the bike’s fluid lines.

http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-bTLqHLSsQqs/UcPHGKU13-I/AAAAAAAABHw/OH80CUOnWNE/s1600/Yamaha-Pictures-2013-VStar-1300-Tourer-5.jpg 380-cubic-inch (1304cc) liquid-cooled, fuel-injected V-twin produces excellent power across the board along with a highly stimulating exhaust note.

Modern-classic design, including a flangeless gas tank and two-into-one exhaust, gives the V Star 1300 Tourer that distinctive Star® look.

Steel chassis gets 48 percent of the bike’s weight on the front tire, for quick, light handling and maneuverability.

Authentic cruiser features such as belt drive, steel fenders and fuel tank, open up the customization possibilities even further.

Estimated 42 mpg* means over 200 miles of riding between fill-ups.

The Star Accessories Catalog is packed full of high-quality parts that invite Star owners to fully express their individuality.

2013 Yamaha V-Star 1300 Tourer Features and Benefits

Engine:

•1304cc, (80 cubic inch) liquid-cooled, short stroke, SOHC, 8-valve, 60° V-twin powerplant pumps out excellent power and torque for unparalleled acceleration and cruising performance. At 110 km/hr the engine is only turning 3,400 rpm, for relaxed highway cruising.

•Electric starting system features a mechanical centrifugal decompression device in the exhaust camshaft for easy, no-hassle starting and reduced battery size and weight.

•Liquid-cooling not only allows for higher state of tune but also reduces mechanical noise for a quieter engine.

•In an effort to maintain the classic air-cooled appearance of the engine, cooling fins have been added as a styling highlight.

•The short stroke engine design reduces the "tallness" of the engine, while the 60 degree "V" makes the engine more compact thereby centralizing mass and lowering the center of gravity for lighter more responsive handling.

http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-bTLqHLSsQqs/UcPHGKU13-I/AAAAAAAABHw/OH80CUOnWNE/s1600/Yamaha-Pictures-2013-VStar-1300-Tourer-5.jpg 2•Classic V-twin "pulse feeling" and engine character highlight this powerplant while annoying high frequency vibration has been eliminated.

•One-piece cylinder heads feature 4-valves per cylinder to provide optimum breathing efficiency for maximum power output. Each head is fitted with a single long reach spark plug.

•Stylish chromed cylinder head covers.

•The SOHC valve train features 36mm intake and 32mm exhaust valves with special single coil springs for great power and torque. Valve angles are set at 20 degrees. Specially designed roller rockers activate the valves. The roller rocker system allows a greater amount of valve lift without producing excessive camshaft wear and friction. The slipper portion of the rocker arm features a needle bearing to further reduce wear and slide resistance. The camshafts have been specially designed to provide class leading power.

•Optimized squish area forces the fuel / air mixture toward the centre of the combustion chamber for more complete combustion and hence power.

•The water pump which is integrated with the oil pump and is located inside the engine cases to keep a cleaner, more traditional air-cooled look to the powerplant. The engine uses a wet sump lubrication system.

•The radiator is mounted between the front frames down tubes to minimize its appearance especially when viewing the machine from the side. Even the rad hoses have been discreetely placed for a cleaner appearance. An electric fan aids in cooling in stop and go traffic.

•Automatic hydraulic cam chain tensioners reduce mechanical noise and extend engine life.

•Ceramic composite-plated cylinders reduce weight, increase cylinder life and provide uniform heat dissipation. The cylinders have a tapered "V" appearance to highlight the V-twin design. Cylinder bore is 100mm.

•Forged pistons offer great durability and reduced weight for faster engine response and less mechanical vibration.

•Crankshaft features a single crank pin design which enhances the pulse feeling and engine character.

•Single axis, left and right dual engine counter balancers reduce vibration to a minimum while maximizing rider comfort.

•Crankcase design features internal oil and coolant lines for a clean, air-cooled engine appearance. There are special piston coolers that spray oil at the under side of the pistons.

•Easy access, spin on type oil filter

•Classic side mounted 3.7 liter air box houses a viscous paper-type filter and adds that special styling touch.

•Mikuni dual bore, 40mm returnless-type throttle body fuel injection system with TPS (Throttle Position Sensor) and ISC (Idle Speed Control) . This is a "closed loop" system that utilizes an oxygen sensor. The oxygen sensor "sniffs" spent exhaust gases and feedback info to the ECU which in turn adjusts the fuel/air mixture for maximum power with minimum emissions. The oxygen sensor is located before the mufflers, so the use of slip-ons will not effect this system.

•Bore size is 40mm and each injector features 12 holes and a dual spray pattern for better fuel atomization and more complete combustion chamber filling. There is one injector per cylinder. Fuel injection benefits include improved fuel economy, chokeless operation, reduced emissions, and steady idling during start-up.

•2 into 1 exhaust system features a 3-way honeycomb catalyzer at the entry point to the muffler. The catalyzier reduces harmful exhaust emissions, while the muffler produces a throaty V-Twin growl. The rear portion of the muffler features a "slash cut" end.

•Maintenance-free transistor controlled ignition (T.C.I.) provides a hot spark for sure starts and strong engine performance.

•Smooth-shifting, 5-speed transmission with 5th gear overdrive delivers outstanding cruising performance and reduced rpms at highway speeds. The engine is spinning at 3,400 rpm at 110 km/hr.

•Clean, quiet belt drive system is extremely low maintenance and simplifies customization. The belt is unique to the XVS1300 and features carbon cords for strength.

•Specially designed starter motor features a damping mechanism to prevent damage from kick back.

•Air Induction System (A.I.S.) reduces harmful exhaust emissions (CO + HC).

•One piece classic heel-and-toe shifter adds versatility and enhances the overall cruising experience.

Chassis and Suspension:

•Double cradle steel frame offers roomy ergonomics, and great handling. This frame utilizes a rigid engine mounting system to optimize the overall rigidity balance for superior handling. The rack is 32 degrees, while the lean angle is a sporty 36 degrees.

•Steel swingarm matches the frame and provides superior performance in a wide variety of conditions, while also making a bold styling statement.

•Long 1,690mm (66.5") wheelbase creates a long, low retro profile and provides solid, stable handling.

•The long low design means spacious ergonomics with lots of leg room, which maximizes both rider and passenger comfort.

•41mm KYB front fork features stylish large-diameter brushed-finished covers. Wheel travel is 135mm (5.3") for a smooth, comfortable ride.

•Monocross style, spring preload-adjustable, single-shock, link rear suspension centralizes mass for agile handling. The linkage system provides a rising rate effect that provides excellent compliance on both small and large bumps. There are 9 positions of spring preload adjustability to suit rider preference.

•Rear shock is vertically mounted behind the engine and is tucked out of sight for that classic, hardtail look. Rear wheel travel is 110mm (4.3").

•Dual 298mm, floating front discs are squeezed by compact twin piston front calipers.

•298mm rear disc brake squeezed by single piston caliper mounted to the underside of the swingarm. This design not only helps to hide the caliper but also lowers the center of gravity for better handling.

•Lightweight 7-spoke cast aluminum wheels are fitted with wide tubeless tires. These stylish "mag" wheels are both easy to clean and never require maintaince. The rear drive pulley matches the wheel design.

•Full-size, "tapered" floating-type rider floorboards are roomy and comfortably positioned while also helping to reduce vibration. There is a replaceable "scraper" on the lower edge of the footboard.

•1 inch, rubber mounted handlebars are easy to reach and help to reduce vibration.

•Front and rear fenders are steel for easy customization and painting if desired.

•18.5 liter teardrop shaped fuel tank with flush mounted filler cap. Fuel tank features a seamless design for that clean, custom look.

•Generous rider and passenger seats offer plenty of room and support for all day riding comfort. Seat height is only 690mm or 27.2" inches off the ground.

•Handlebar-mounted chromed instrument features an analog speedometer, digital odometer, dual tripmeters, low fuel tripmeter, clock and low fuel warning light. Stylish red background illumination.

•Handlebar switch gear allows the operator to change instrument functions via buttons on the back of the RHS handlebar switch, thereby eliminating the need to take your hands off the bars to adjust the main instrument functions.

•60/55 watt high intensity halogen headlight emphasizes the "wild streamline", mass forward styling design. The chromed headlight body is adjustable up and down plus left and right via remote adjusters. There are also two 35 watt accessory light connectors inside the headlight shell for accessory passing lamps.

•Tall windshield features chrome accents and a central Star logo that enhances the unit's overall styling. This windshield offers excellent wind and weather protection and can be easily removed with only 4 bolts.

•Leather covered, hard shell saddlebags feature a stylish tapered design and are lockable for extra security. The bags offer 42 litres of storage capacity each, ample room for casual touring.

•Passenger backrest with embossed Star logo provides that extra peace of mind for a passenger.

Additional Features:

•Industry-leading Star family fit and finish features rich, lustrous paint and extensive chrome accents creating a machine as stunning as it is powerful.
•3D fuel tank emblems enhance quality and attention to detail.
•Chromed drive belt cover
•Extra wide front brake and clutch levers provide a quality feel.

2013 Yamaha V-Star 1300 Deluxe Features and Benefits

Engine:

•1304cc, (80 cubic inch) liquid-cooled, short stroke, SOHC, 8-valve, 60° V-twin powerplant pumps out excellent power and torque for unparalleled acceleration and cruising performance. At 110 km/hr the engine is only turning 3,400 rpm, for relaxed highway cruising.

•Electric starting system features a mechanical centrifugal decompression device in the exhaust camshaft for easy, no-hassle starting and reduced battery size and weight.

•Liquid-cooling not only allows for higher state of tune but also reduces mechanical noise for a quieter engine.

•In an effort to maintain the classic air-cooled appearance of the engine, cooling fins have been added as a styling highlight.

•The short stroke engine design reduces the "tallness" of the engine, while the 60 degree "V" makes the engine more compact thereby centralizing mass and lowering the center of gravity for lighter more responsive handling.

•Classic V-twin "pulse feeling" and engine character highlight this powerplant while annoying high frequency vibration has been eliminated.

•One-piece cylinder heads feature 4-valves per cylinder to provide optimum breathing efficiency for maximum power output. Each head is fitted with a single long reach spark plug.

•Stylish chromed cylinder head covers.

•The SOHC valve train features 36mm intake and 32mm exhaust valves with special single coil springs for great power and torque. Valve angles are set at 20 degrees. Specially designed roller rockers activate the valves. The roller rocker system allows a greater amount of valve lift without producing excessive camshaft wear and friction. The slipper portion of the rocker arm features a needle bearing to further reduce wear and slide resistance. The camshafts have been specially designed to provide class leading power.

•Optimized squish area forces the fuel / air mixture toward the centre of the combustion chamber for more complete combustion and hence power.

•The water pump which is integrated with the oil pump and is located inside the engine cases to keep a cleaner, more traditional air-cooled look to the powerplant. The engine uses a wet sump lubrication system.

•The radiator is mounted between the front frames down tubes to minimize its appearance especially when viewing the machine from the side. Even the rad hoses have been discreetely placed for a cleaner appearance. An electric fan aids in cooling in stop and go traffic.

•Automatic hydraulic cam chain tensioners reduce mechanical noise and extend engine life.

•Ceramic composite-plated cylinders reduce weight, increase cylinder life and provide uniform heat dissipation. The cylinders have a tapered "V" appearance to highlight the V-twin design. Cylinder bore is 100mm.

•Forged pistons offer great durability and reduced weight for faster engine response and less mechanical vibration.

•Crankshaft features a single crank pin design which enhances the pulse feeling and engine character.

•Single axis, left and right dual engine counter balancers reduce vibration to a minimum while maximizing rider comfort.

•Crankcase design features internal oil and coolant lines for a clean, air-cooled engine appearance. There are special piston coolers that spray oil at the under side of the pistons.

•Easy access, spin on type oil filter

•Classic side mounted 3.7 liter air box houses a viscous paper-type filter and adds that special styling touch.

•Mikuni dual bore, 40mm returnless-type throttle body fuel injection system with TPS (Throttle Position Sensor) and ISC (Idle Speed Control) . This is a "closed loop" system that utilizes an oxygen sensor. The oxygen sensor "sniffs" spent exhaust gases and feedback info to the ECU which in turn adjusts the fuel/air mixture for maximum power with minimum emissions. The oxygen sensor is located before the mufflers, so the use of slip-ons will not effect this system.

•Bore size is 40mm and each injector features 12 holes and a dual spray pattern for better fuel atomization and more complete combustion chamber filling. There is one injector per cylinder. Fuel injection benefits include improved fuel economy, chokeless operation, reduced emissions, and steady idling during start-up.

•2 into 1 exhaust system features a 3-way honeycomb catalyzer at the entry point to the muffler. The catalyzier reduces harmful exhaust emissions, while the muffler produces a throaty V-Twin growl. The rear portion of the muffler features a "slash cut" end.

•Maintenance-free transistor controlled ignition (T.C.I.) provides a hot spark for sure starts and strong engine performance.

•Smooth-shifting, 5-speed transmission with 5th gear overdrive delivers outstanding cruising performance and reduced rpms at highway speeds. The engine is spinning at 3,400 rpm at 110 km/hr.

•Clean, quiet belt drive system is extremely low maintenance and simplifies customization. The belt is unique to the XVS1300 and features carbon cords for strength.

•Specially designed starter motor features a damping mechanism to prevent damage from kick back.

•Air Induction System (A.I.S.) reduces harmful exhaust emissions (CO + HC).

•One piece classic heel-and-toe shifter adds versatility and enhances the overall cruising experience.

Chassis and Suspension:

•Double cradle steel frame offers roomy ergonomics, and great handling. This frame utilizes a rigid engine mounting system to optimize the overall rigidity balance for superior handling. The rack is 32 degrees, while the lean angle is a sporty 36 degrees.

•Steel swingarm matches the frame and provides superior performance in a wide variety of conditions, while also making a bold styling statement.

•Long 1,690mm (66.5") wheelbase creates a long, low retro profile and provides solid, stable handling.

•The long low design means spacious ergonomics with lots of leg room, which maximizes both rider and passenger comfort.

•41mm KYB front fork features stylish large-diameter brushed-finished covers. Wheel travel is 135mm (5.3") for a smooth, comfortable ride.

•Monocross style, spring preload-adjustable, single-shock, link rear suspension centralizes mass for agile handling. The linkage system provides a rising rate effect that provides excellent compliance on both small and large bumps. There are 9 positions of spring preload adjustability to suit rider preference.

•Rear shock is vertically mounted behind the engine and is tucked out of sight for that classic, hardtail look. Rear wheel travel is 110mm (4.3").

•Dual 298mm, floating front discs are squeezed by compact twin piston front calipers.

•298mm rear disc brake squeezed by single piston caliper mounted to the underside of the swingarm. This design not only helps to hide the caliper but also lowers the center of gravity for better handling.

•Lightweight 7-spoke cast aluminum wheels are fitted with wide tubeless tires. These stylish "mag" wheels are both easy to clean and never require maintaince. The rear drive pulley matches the wheel design.

•Stylish fork mounted faring offers a dynamic look as well as great weather protection. It also features dual speakers providing excellent sound quality. A taller windshield provides relaxed cruising comfort. The Garmin Zumo 665 navigation system is neatly integrated into the centre of the fairing cockpit. It can be easily removed if desired

•The V-Star 1300 Deluxe is equipped with a Garmin Zumo 665 GPS / navigation system. The Garmin Zumo series are specifically designed for motorcycle use and feature a rugged, waterproof design. For complete details for the Zumo 665 please go to: https://buy.garmin.com/shop/shop.do?pID=65203

•iPod / iPhone ready audio system features dual fairing mounted speakers and convenient handlebar mounted audio controller. Just plug in your iPod / iPhone into the special connector in the saddlebag and sit back, relax and enjoy your favorite tunes.

•Beautifully styled 28.5 litre, colour matched, hard locking saddlebags offer plenty of convenient storage.

•Full-size, "tapered" floating-type rider floorboards are roomy and comfortably positioned while also helping to reduce vibration. There is a replaceable "scraper" on the lower edge of the footboard.

•1 inch, rubber mounted handlebars are easy to reach and help to reduce vibration.

•Front and rear fenders are steel for easy customization and painting if desired.

•18.5 liter teardrop shaped fuel tank with flush mounted filler cap. Fuel tank features a seamless design for that clean, custom look.

•Generous rider and passenger seats offer plenty of room and support for all day riding comfort. Seat height is only 690mm or 27.2" inches off the ground.

•Handlebar-mounted chromed instrument features an analog speedometer, digital odometer, dual tripmeters, low fuel tripmeter, clock and low fuel warning light. Stylish red background illumination.

•Handlebar switch gear allows the operator to change instrument functions via buttons on the back of the RHS handlebar switch, thereby eliminating the need to take your hands off the bars to adjust the main instrument functions.

•60/55 watt high intensity halogen headlight emphasizes the "wild streamline", mass forward styling design. The chromed headlight body is adjustable up and down plus left and right via remote adjusters. There are also two 35 watt accessory light connectors inside the headlight shell for accessory passing lamps.

Additional Features:

• Industry-leading Star family fit and finish features rich, lustrous paint and extensive chrome accents creating a machine as stunning as it is powerful.
• 3D fuel tank emblems enhance quality and attention to detail.
• Chromed drive belt cover
• Extra wide front brake and clutch levers provide a quality feel.

2013 Yamaha Raptor YFZ450R Review

Race-spec suspension for superior handling. Hard hitting 449cc engine for awesome power output. Add in fuel injection, and Yamaha's championship legacy keeps you on track.

Designed to dominate the race track, the YFZ450R is sure to draw many checkered flags.

With a wide-track chassis and long travel suspension, the YFZ450R provides incredible stability, confidence and control. The powerful 5-valve 449cc race engine is fuel injected with many components developed from our motocross bikes including the cylinder, cylinder head, cams and crank designs. The engine is cradled by a hybrid aluminum chassis for optimized strength and rigidity, making the YFZ450R the most capable racer we've ever developed.

2013 Yamaha Raptor YFZ450R Key Features:

• The prestigious “ATV of the Year” Award from ATV Sport Magazine. “Best in Class” from ATV/SxS Illustrated. Winner of shootout after shootout. The YFZ450R took ’em all – in its first model year, right out of the starting gate. This is one amazing ATV!
• In ATV motocross, great power output doesn’t mean much without superior handling. YFZ450R delivers! The stance of the YFZ450R is motocross ready. The weldless frame is designed from lightweight aluminum, with a tension-steel bottom frame that lets the engine sit lower for excellent mass centralization. Suspension components have more travel, carefully chosen for best performance, and the front shock bodies feature Kashima coating for even smoother operation.
• Fatigue can sometimes be a racer’s worst competition. That’s why the YFZ450R’s designers made this ATV so comfortable. It boasts racer friendly ergonomics with plenty of room to hang off in the corners, and the seat is padded just right to be more comfortable regardless of riding position. Handlebars are 4-position adjustable, too, so every rider can choose the best position, and the throttle has been designed for all day comfort.
• This 449cc engine uses titanium five-valve cylinder head technology, with a camshaft designed just for this machine to deliver abundant low to midrange torque for performance where you can really use it to take the lead – while still maintaining a super strong top end to let you pull away from the pack.
• The YFZ450R incorporates Yamaha Fuel Injection for precise fuel delivery. With big 42mm Mikuni® throttle body and 12-hole injector, this system provides exceptional atomization of the fuel for maximum power. The system also includes ISC (Idle Speed Control) for easy, reliable start-up and warming.
• This ATV is designed to make race prep easy. Body panels come off easily for service; there’s no need to remove the battery or other components to get the fenders off. The aluminum frame is bolted together, rather than welded, for maximum durability. And the oil tank is integrated with the crankcase so it’s easier to service the engine.

2013 Yamaha Raptor YFZ450R Features and Benefits:

• The fuel-injected 449cc engine has superb power characteristics. Power delivery is smooth and strong off the line with lots of low and mid range where you need it.
• The crankcase holds a crankshaft that’s ready to handle the increased balance ratio, as well as a counterbalancer for superior vibration control. The crankcase also houses the oil tank, which helps to centralize mass for unmatched handling and makes maintenance easier.
• Camshafts are designed to maximize the torque available in the low and mid ranges.
• Fuel injection uses a 12-hole injector that provides exceptional atomization of the fuel for maximum combustion efficiency and power delivery. The system also uses a big, 42mm Mikuni® throttle body and includes ISC (Idle Speed Control) for easy, reliable start-up and warming.

Chassis/Suspension:

• The chassis is very spacious, allowing room for even an aggressive racer to move around during the moto, and the ATV’s body panels that the rider contacts during operation are of a softer plastic material for greater comfort. The seat is narrow in the front, yet wide and padded in the rear to provide a more comfortable ride, even when hanging off on the side of the seat in a turn.
• The wheel has been designed with the inner lip rolled in. This increases the rigidity, allowing a reduction in weight while maintaining strength.
• Wheels are set motocross-spec wide, near the maximum allowable 50 inches, for great cornering ability. The Dunlop® tires are grippy with a great pattern for cornering, and at 20 inches in the rear and 21 inches in the front, provide much better ground clearance than the competition. That makes the YFZ450R fun to ride off-road, too.
• Handlebars are mounted on 4-way clamps for exceptional adjustability. There are two sets of holes in the handlebar crown, and eccentric clamps so the rider can choose the standard setting, 10mm or 20mm forward, or 10mm back.
• Foot pegs are a generous 2.6 inches wide, something riders will appreciate every time they want to get up on the pegs, with good kick-up on the ends for solid footing.
• The frame is aluminum for lightweight, except for the frame member under the engine. Here tensioned steel is used for its combination of strength and thinness. This allowed the designers to sit the engine lower overall for excellent mass centralization for unmatched handling. The aluminum frame is bolted together, rather than welded, for maximum durability.
• The front frame is noticeably narrow at the A-arm mounting points. This dramatically reduces changes in camber as the long A-arms travel through their full range of motion. The front 44mm KYB® shocks have Kashima coating for smooth operation with superb bump absorption and excellent anti-bottoming characteristics. The 9.8 inches of wheel travel means this racer is up to even the most challenging tracks.
• The rear swingarm is crafted of strong, gravity-fed aluminum, and it’s matched to a fully adjustable 46mm KYB® piggyback shock absorber for excellent handling. Rear wheel travel is 11.0 inches for comfort even on tough terrain.
• For excellent stopping ability, YFZ450R features dual front hydraulic disc brakes and a trick looking, lightweight wave-type rear rotor.

Additional Features:

• The throttle lever requires low effort, and it’s very comfortable to use. That means less fatigue during all-day riding.
• The instrumentation is all business. The discrete panel on the fender in front of the rider gives vital indicators about low fuel, coolant temperature, check engine, and neutral gear via a straightforward LED display.
