I have liked the Warrior's look for at least 3 years now, but Have heard tons of negatives. Stalling issues, carb issues.. tranny issues... Is this a specific year thing or a warrior wide thing. Looking to possibly buy one, but I can't imagine a manufacturer would continue to sell a bike that is as bad as the hate I have read and heard. Any help would be appreciated.

Don't know what bike you are reading about, but is sure doesn't sound like a Warrior. Warrior's do not have Carbs. Stalling or tranny issues? Sure you arn't reading about the M109R?





What hate are you talking about? haven't met a warrior member who doesn't love their bike.

You ought to know that Harley guys aren't going to tell you the truth about a bike that costs less, is more dependable and faster than theirs.

There was a recall on the tranny on the couple years and recalls on couple other items, but that's it. Things like that make me feel more confident about the manufacturer. No bike is perfect so if there are no recalls on one I'd be suspicious. As far as having problems like you mentioned that's the farthest thing from the truth. If that were true I wouldn't have one.

The only hate involved with my Warrior is that I HATE that I can't ride it for 7 months of the freakin year is all. Other than that, +1 for "what bike you talkin' 'bout, Willis"??

Sorry you were confused...


The Road Star Warrior is Manufactured by YAMAHA.....


There are a couple guys on here who drive Harleys, but for the most part all the rest of our bikes are perfect. lol

Wow, those are the first negative remarks I've ever seen/heard about the Warrior... anywhere... from anyone.


There are a couple recalls for models from a few years back, but nothing for recent years.


Almost everything I've ever heard (and experienced myself), is that the Warrior engine/transmission/brakes/suspension/etcare extremely strong and reliable. Now,any machineis susceptible to a problem here and there. But, from what I know, the Warrior is a very well built machine when stacked against the competition.


Warrior is fuel injected.


What are the sources of all the hate?

"Harley guy" here and even though I love my Harleys I loved both of my Warriors just as much. I don't think you will find many Harley guys that don't give respect to the Warrior, especially those of us on the forum that have owned 1, or more than 1 in some cases. The Warrior is an outstanding machine.

The fifth gear trany issue was in the earlier models. Yamaha recalled them and fixed them. I have not had a single problem with my 06after 23,000 miles.

First time I've seen anything like that. My advice is you better buy a Warrior cause it is the exact opposite of what you have heard.

You are mistaken! You're not a Harley. You're a Warrior guy who is currently riding a Harley!
