2011 Yamaha Stryker model Features

1304cc fuel injected V-Twin

Chopper inspired styling and attitude


1304cc (80 cubic inch), liquid-cooled, short stroke, SOHC, 4-valve per cylinder, fuel injected, 60° V-twin powerplant pumps out impressive power and torque for excellent cruising performance.

Uneven firing interval, bore & stroke dimensions and special ignition & injection mapping all bring about excellent torque output which classic V-twin pulse feeling

Liquid-cooling not just enables higher state of tune since it maintains more stable operating temperatures, but additionally reduces mechanical noise for any quieter engine.

In order to keep up with the classic air-cooled appearance from the engine, cooling fins happen to be added like a styling highlight.

The short stroke engine design cuts down on the "height" from the engine, as the 60 degree "V" helps make the engine smaller sized thereby centralizing mass and decreasing the center of gravity for lighter, more responsive handling.

One-piece cylinder heads feature 4-valves per cylinder to supply optimum breathing efficiency for optimum power output.

Stylish chromed cylinder head covers.

The SOHC valve train features 36mm intake and 32mm exhaust valves with special single coil springs for nice power and torque. Valves angles are set at 20 degrees from centre.

Engineered roller rockers activate the valves. The rocker system allows a larger quantity of valve lift without causing excessive camshaft wear . The slipper part of the rocker arm includes a needle bearing which reduces wear and slide resistance (friction). The camshafts happen to be engineered to be used with roller rockers.

Pent roof combustion chamber design and optimized squish area forces the fuel / air mixture toward the centre from the combustion chamber for additional complete combustion and therefore improved power and cleaner emissions.

The radiator is mounted between your front frame down tubes to reduce its appearance particularly when viewing the equipment in the side. The rad hoses happen to be discreetly placed for any cleaner appearance. An electrical fan helps with cooling during hot weather or perhaps in stop and go traffic.

Automatic hydraulic cam chain tensioners reduce mechanical noise and simplify maintenance too.

Ceramic composite-plated cylinders provide uniform heat dissipation whilst reducing friction and weight. The cylinders possess a tapered "V" appearance to focus on the V-twin design. Cylinder bore is 100mm.

High end forged pistons offer great durability and reduced weight for faster engine response and fewer mechanical vibration.

Crankshaft includes a single crank pin design. This engineered crank and uneven firing order helps you to boost the pulse feeling which unique V-twin engine character.

Single axis, right and left dual engine counter balancers reduce vibration low while maximizing rider comfort.

Crankcase design features internal oil and coolant lines for any clean, air-cooled engine appearance. You will find special piston coolers that spray oil in the under side from the pistons.

Quick access, spin on type oil filter is situated underneath the engine. You don't have to get rid of any parts to gain access to the oil filter.

Classic side mounted air box houses a high-flow viscous paper-type filter and adds the perfect styling touch too.

Mikuni dual bore, 40mm throttle body fuel injection system with TPS (Throttle Position Sensor) and ISC (Idle Speed Control). This can be a "closed loop" system that employs an oxygen sensor within the exhaust. The sensor "sniffs" the spent exhaust gases and feeds back info towards the ECU which adjusts the fuel/air mixture for optimum power with minimum emissions. The oxygen sensor is situated prior to the mufflers, therefore the utilization of slip-on mufflers won't affect this technique. Each injector features 12 holes along with a dual spray pattern for better fuel atomization and much more complete combustion chamber filling. There's one injector per cylinder. Fuel injection benefits include improved gas mileage; choke less operation, reduced emissions, and smoother running.

Ruthless fuel pump is found in another sub tank below the seat.

2 into 1 into 2 exhaust system features dual slash cut mufflers which offer a specially developed exhaust observe that accentuates the V-Twin rumble. The engineers refer to it as the "sound of acceleration".

A 3-way honeycomb catalyzer is situated in the access point towards the mufflers. The catalyzer reduces harmful exhaust emissions.

Smooth-shifting, 5-speed transmission with 5th gear overdrive delivers outstanding cruising performance and reduced rpms at highway speeds for comfortable cruising.

Clean, quiet belt drive product is extremely low maintenance and simplifies customization. The belt features carbon cords for added strength.

Air Induction System (A.I.S.) reduces harmful exhaust emissions (CO + HC).


Double cradle steel frame with "open neck space" has an aggressive chopper image. This frame relies on a rigid engine mounting system to optimize the entire rigidity balance from the chassis for superior handling. The rake is 34 degrees having a yoke offset * of 6 degrees. The frame not provides excellent handling and roomy ergonomics but additionally compliments the gorgeous flowing lines from the entire machine.
Important Note: Raked out front fork with a lot of trail generally provides good straight line stability but often leads to heavy steering at low speeds. The engineers at Yamaha won't sacrifice handling for styling, so that they allow us a 6 degree yoke offset angle coupled with a 34 degree steering head for any total fork angle of 40 degrees. The "Stryker" provides light "athletic handling and simple steering" not normally of a custom styled bike. This bike was created to become ridden ! Key numbers: 6 degree yoke offset angle, 34 degree caster angle, 109mm of trail.

Steel swingarm compliments the frame and also the overall chassis rigidity balance

Long 1,750mm (68.9") wheelbase results in a long, low profile and solid, stable handling. This chassis provides a 45% & 55% front to rear weight distribution and it is approximately 60mm longer compared to standard V-Star 1300.

The long low design means spacious ergonomics with a lot of leg room, which maximizes rider and passenger comfort.

Raked out 41mm front fork offers excellent ride comfort and compliance. Chip protectors assistance to prevent stone chips within the tubes. Front wheel travel is 135mm (5.3").

Monocross style, spring preload-adjustable, single-shock, link rear suspension centralizes mass for agile handling. The linkage system supplies a rising rate effect providing you with excellent compliance on big and small bumps. You will find 9 positions of spring preload adjustability to match rider preference.

Rear shock is vertically mounted behind the engine and it is tucked from sight for your classic, clean, hard tail look. Rear wheel travel is 100mm (3.9").

Single, large 320mm, floating front disc is squeezed with a compact twin piston front caliper.

310mm rear disc brake is squeezed by single piston caliper mounted towards the underside from the swingarm. This design not just helps you to hide the caliper but additionally lowers the middle of gravity for better handling.

Newly designed, lightweight 5-spoke cast aluminium wheels are fitted tubeless tires. These stylish wheels are generally simple to neat and maintenance-free. The leading wheel is really a MT3.50 x 21 inch as the rear is really a wide MT7.50x18. The narrow front tire (120/70 x 21) and wide rear tire (240/40R18) boost the chopper styling image.

Newly designed 1 " handlebars are mounted straight to top of the handlebar crown without using traditional handlebar holders. This design accentuations the chopper profile whilst providing a hostile riding position.

Newly design deep-bend front and back fenders boost the chopper styling. Steel material enables easy customization and painting if desired.

15 litre teardrop shaped gas tank with chromed filler cap. The long, slim tank design accentuates the bikes muscular styling lines.

Newly designed one piece rider and passenger seat provides a low 670mm (26.4") seat height and great styling too. Seating position is better referred to as sitting "in" not "on" providing an extremely special "riding attitude".

Chromed handlebar-mounted instrument features an analog speedometer, digital odometer, dual tripmeters, fuel gauge, fuel reserve tripmeter (counts kilometres because the fuel continued reserve), clock, along with a selection of warning lights and self diagnostic functions.

Instrument functions could be "tabbed" through and re-set while using RHS handlebar switch gear, allowing the operator to alter instrument meter functions if you don't take hands from the bars.

Newly designed, compact 60/55 watt high intensity halogen headlight emphasizes the "chopper" image.

Attractive LED tail light isn't just very visible but additionally uses less electrical energy than the usual conventional bulb style taillight.
