It’s time to go back to my channel’s roots and re-introduce the audience to my Yamaha 1100 Drag Star Class bobber conversion.
Hier präsentiere ich euch meine Yamaha XVS 1100 Drag Star Classic mit Bobber-Umbau, Modelljahr 2000. Nach 6 einhalb Jahren und knapp 9’000 km ist es Zeit Ade zu sagen und sie zu verkaufen.
Ich habe dieses Motorrad 2014 im Originalzustand gekauft und sogleich zum Bobber umgebaut. Der Bobber Bausatz ist von Blue Collar Bobbers, USA. Des Weiteren sind Lenker, Riser, Griffe, sowie die Blinker & Rückleuchten umgebaut.
Alles ist eingetragen und hat am 15. März 2021 die Motorfahrzeugkontrolle bestanden.

I bought this motorcycle in its original condition in 2014 and immediately converted it into a bobber. The Bobber kit is from Blue Collar Bobbers, USA. Furthermore, the handlebars, risers, grips, as well as the indicators and taillights have been changed as well.
Everything is registered and passed the motor vehicle inspection on March 15, 2021.
Hey guys, wishing everyone a happy 2020! I sincerely hope that it’s gonna be a great year for everyone reading this post….and beyond, of course. 🙂
Over the Christmas holidays I’ve been thinking a bit how I want to continue with my MotorScotti YouTube and social media presence. The video says it all. I’m looking forward to making lots more useful and entertaining content with regards to cars, motorcycles and anything connected to wheels and engines. Stay tuned, Carl
Good Festival of Speed!!! 2019 year is the year I finally seized to opportunity to attend it. Well, my fiancée gave me tickets as my Christmas present 2018 🙂 and off we went. it was an amazing experience; from the trip through the south of England, our airBnB host and of course the Festival of Speed itself. I can highly recommend it. Long story short, I’ll let you watch the video down below rather than writing a novel.
You made it possible!
So my MotorScotti YouTube channel just reached 1’000 subscribers! What I started with a fairly modest short clip of my Yamaha XVS Drag Star 1100 motorcycles has gone through being a model car review channel to becoming a DIY how to repair and modification channel about cars in general and mores specifically the Peugeot RCZ. As mention in my channel update video, it’s time to move on to the next chapter with the Pontiac Firebird KITT project.
Over the years I have received a loads of constructive and positive feedback from all of the viewers and I am really greatful for your support! I enjoy documenting my little automotive and mechanical projects and share it with the world to help others who are looking for the information I provide and simply show that with a little bit of dedication you can do it, too! At you own risk, of course!! :-p
Anyway, this is just the beginning of a lot more to come. Thank you for your continuous support and stay tuned!! 🙂
Let’s get dirty
In terms of doing an oil change, the Yamaha 1100 Drag Star is probably the least Japanese on planet Earth. Why, simply because you need to remove the exhaust to access the oil filter… I mean, you could simply not bother about the filter and just change the oil – job done. Except that’s not my style. If I’m going to do it myself, I’m gonna do it as good as possible.
Buckle up, here’s how to do it! 🙂
After changing the air filter, the next step would be to put new spark plugs in this ride. Spark plugs are usually changed once the respective mileage prescribed by the manufacturer is over. On my Drag Star, I change them every 10’000 km. I use the original NGK BPR7ES units. The procedure is pretty straightforward.
Here’s how to do it! 🙂
Fresh air instead of oil
Okay, the air filter is part of the expendable materials on a motorcycles. Now that I’m servicing my car, I figured I’d go down the same road as on my Peugeot RCZ and replace the old standard air filter with a K&N sports air filter. It does fit in the original compartment, hopefully make it sound a bit better and last ‘a lifetime’.
The old filter was literally covered in engine oil, which as far as I know, can only mean that there is too much oil in the engine! Perfect time to get that cleaned up, changed and obviously also conduct an oil change..!
Here’s how to do it! 🙂
