Question about 2004 Yamaha Royal Star Venture

1 Answer

How to tell if front forks are bent on a 2004 yamaha royal venture I have a vibration going around curves, Also in overdrive acts like it is only running on 3 cylinders but at higher RPM seems to be smooth. I have replaced plugs and had carbs adjusted. I think the bike set for a year or so.

    1. The vibration may be that the struts are not charged properly/ leaking; the wheel bearing is going bad; or the steering head (fork) bearing is worn.

I own an 04 Royal Star Midnight Venture, Sadly my cousin dropped it at near zero for speed. There are no visible damage to the bike but the crash bar as short as it is on the LH side has moved or was bent...


Hi, Bqwhr for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your problem.

How do I adjust the headlight on a yamaha royal star motorcycle


It it's a Venture, there's a knob on the left side, in front of the fork pivot, turn clockwise to lower the beam, counterclockwise to raise it.

If it's just a Royal Star, the adjustments may be made through holes on both sides, cut low in the headlight rim.

2007 Yamaha Royal Star Venture Drive Shaft (?) Howl


This is a safety issue. Ever flew over the handlebars at 60 miles per hour because the back wheel locked up? It sounds like a serious lack of lubrication. Take the wheel assembly apart and see what is going on. If in doubt, have the dealer look at it. Any product recalls on your bike? Check it out.

Please rate this answer. Thanks jerboe!
