Parts for 2010
Good day folks,

I have a 2010 Vstar custom 1100 and had a question in regards to after market parts. For some reason allot of the websites and catalogs only list parts for that model up to 2009. I've contacted Yamaha in regards to this, but they were not very helpful, stating that they do not recommend aftermarket parts (surprise) and would not answer if parts listed for a 2009 would fit a 2010. I'm wondering if anyone in here knows if parts for a 2009 will fit 2010 considering that this model has not seemed to have changed since it's inception?

Thanks

RE: Parts for 2010
hah yeah i bet they would not recommend as they want to charge more for oem, do not know for sure but bet it will all fit, you are correct hardly any changes to the 1100 ever and lots of very good aftermarket parts out there for the 1100 and also lots of excellent used parts too.

RE: Parts for 2010
I think about 2010 is when they went "50 state" - at least that's true on the 650 (or maybe it was 2011). Anyway, if that's the case there will possibly be some differences in things like the engine computer and related sensors but I'm with Keith in betting that there are few, if any, differences for chassis items like seats/bags/fairings and so on.

There was a minor difference in the header pipe diameter on my 2011 650 that made it "incompatible" with the V&H Cruzer pipes I bought for it that were only listed as fitting up to 2009 or 2010...but a little shade-tree engineering fixed that easily enough.
