    I love My Venture

    Years ago I owned a 1987 Yamaha Venture XVZ-1300. Today I came across a lapel pin for the Venture. Any Venture owner who may like to have the pin can have it for the price of shipping. See attached. First come first served!

    I miss my venture.....still have the tee shirts. The only reason I went to a goldwing was because they took the fun out of it and made it a cruiser. B.

    I also miss the Venture..as I said it had over 100,000 on the odo and I was starting to have issues with the clutch slipping. Replace the clutch discs and was still having slippage, so I traded in the Venture on my first Wing in 1996. Kept the 96 Wing until 2015 when I purchased a new (to me) 2008 1800HPNA. The 96 Wing had 210,000 on the odo. I had read that the possible issue with the Venture was because I was using synthetic oil, which caused the slippage in the clutch. If that was true, all I would have had to do is change the oil and keep riding the Venture!!

    I had a 83 Venture and it was a rocketship. All I ever ran in it was synthetic and car oil at that and never had any issues. On a trip out to California in 99 I took my own oil along to change and a dealer out there said it would cause the clutch to slip. It never did.
