busy with work and all so i am back ,,, yes the ais is disable and completely removed,,used the .45cal shells to plug ,, i havent pulled the carbs out to inspect the jetting job done by original owner,,there in lies my problem.. dont think the shims were installed,,,,since i restricted air flow into the barrons big air the performance seems alot better....so will need to pull carbs (when winter hits) and redo for next season....right now i have 15000+km since purchasing in may :)

RE: V Star 1300 top speed...
I've seen a clip of a guy around here riding a V* 1300 with the speedo showing 130 MPH (210km) and it accelerated to that with no apparent effort, so I suspect the top end is somewhere north of that.

Anyway you look at it that's faster than I have any desire to ride! (Yeah...I guess I'm getting old and lazy...)

Oh...one thing to keep in mind when you get back in the saddle...the 1300 may have the chops to run that fast but it's not going to handle at speeds like your sport bikes did! It weighs probably almost twice as much as your sport bikes and has a longer wheelbase and shallower lean angle, etc.

When the speedo hits 100, I stop looking at it. I figure my attention is best spent elsewhere.

V Star 1300 top speed...
What lowers do you guys use?

I just ordered a new seat and driver's backrest (Ultimate Seats)...and will likely pull the trigger on an electronic cruise control unit soon. Some lowers would make my trips even nicer!

I know this is really old. Just wondering if you ever put any lowers on. Also curious what electronic cruise control you were looking at.

I have a 2015 Star 1300 Tourer and put Memphis Shades fork deflectors on her and it makes a big difference. It reduces the air coming up and hitting your chest and chin. It is so effective that I took them off in the summer because it made it too warm. I just put them back on for the fall and winter.

EDIT: I don't use a cruise control. Augie

Thanks for the info Augie. I think I'm definitely going to look into the Memphis Shades lowers. I rode on the highway for a short ride and the wind coming up was really noticeable (annoying).
