The v star 1300 was easier to ride than the 1100. Smoother, and just more comfortable. I don't know your weight/size, but that is my take on it. Also, the 1100's, I believe have a shaft drive vs. a belt drive for the 1300. It all comes down to what you prefer. Hope this helps. I'm sure some others will chime in.

You sure laugh alot. I was just saying for conversation also. I agree, drilling out the air box makes a huge difference in regards to acceleration and throttle response, whether it be carbed or EFI. And a bike isn't fancy because it has EFI either. Lots of newer bikes out there are EFI. I'm just saying there is a MONSTER difference between Carbureted and EFI, with or without a modified airbox.

Ha! It's ok, I talk to myself and my two Pugs all the time. I know they won't talk back. They don't speak English. They are Chinese Pugs, so they speak Chinese. I'm so dumb.

And thanks! I'm hoping this forum is full of nice helpful people. I have been on several message boards, such as the Chevrolet and GMC Truck message boards and one car audio message boards that were full of a-holes.

RE: V Star 1300 vs 1100
Thanks. I think they look great. Larger pipes fit the bike alot bettter than the smaller ones in my opinion.

And that's the beauty of being single and having a big ole house to myself! My garage was sealed off and turned into a room. I wish it hadn't. I'd much rather have a garage even though I use that room for my work area, gym and storage, but if it was a garage, I would have enough room for my truck, bike and everything that's in there now. Not sure why they did it. House is already a 2 story/3bedroom as it is. Don't need a 4th (oversized) bedroom
