Default New Guy from Maine!

Hey all. New to the bike game, and new to the Stryker. Just picked up my first ever bike. 2011 Star Stryker. 3400 miles and it came with a set of Cobra Swept Pipes and a Fuel Controller.

Any tips or tricks to these bikes that will help me along?

Welcome to the forum! The only tip you need... ride it a lot!

Like any bike, it is unique in it's own way. The Stryker likes to rev higher than most V twin engines so don't be afraid to let it do that. Some people say it shifts heavy, which it does - sorta - but nothing to worry about.

It's a super reliable machine. Just have fun and good to have you here.

Keep the shiny side up. That little one is going to need you around for a while.
