See what customers are saying!!

Shane just writing to say you are amazing!!  I just got back from a ride.  Rode most of the time rode around 70 to 75 mph. Few times got an 80 in there (indicated). Filled it up and got 40.6 mpg!!  Now I was lucky to be getting 35-36 with the other setup. I am just mystified with larger jets and more turns on the screws!! The bike is running well and I am not going to change a thing unless you think I should do something different.  Again thanks for great support!

Take care
Les C. AZ                                                                                                 

I installed the "Chubby" kit and installed the jets like you mentioned to me over the phone. I had to take her for a test ride, even though it was 34 deg. outside, and what a difference the kit made!  Thanks for all your help!

Hi Shane
I thought I'd let you know how pleased I am with the way my bike goes. The bike runs great with the 429 cams, carb mods, ignition and the Chubby air filter kit. The bike loves to rev and pulls hard, passing trucks is a breeze and I can easily keep up with V star 1300's. I love the slightly lumpy idle and the deeper sound it has. All of the parts were easy to fit and work well together and the bike was easy to tune I could not be happier. Again thanks Shane for you very professional and friendly service, I'm a BIG fan of your company and products.
Cheers Bill W Australia

Hi Shane,
Just wanted to let you know that my bike is running fantastic since I put in the chubby air kit, she has so much power now, and it's much more fuel efficient!
Thanks again

SSCC CLassic Faux Air Kit,
Our SSCC Classic Air kits have become so popular with many of the other Yamaha Star models and with all the requests recieved... We've now made this kit available for the 1100 V Star's as well... Best of all we did it without compromising on performance!

Although these kits are non-functional they
can be used to fill the gap between the cylinder heads when converting to pod style air kit, like our "Chubby Air"... The kits are designed to be a direct replacement for the external stock air box and can be easily installed by anyone. Our Classic air kit allows you to combine great looks with the exceptional proven performance that our Chubby Air Kit has always delivered, giving you the best of both worlds!

The SSCC Classic faux air kit maintains the riders comfort with its low profile design, allowing for good clearance between the riders leg and the air kit. 

  • Fitment on the V-Star 1100 Custom or Classic all years 
  • Kits include instructions and all necessary hardware for a complete installation
  • Non-Functional, must be used with our Chubby Air or similar product

  • Solid-state electronics are shock resistant and extremely durable
  • CarbMate displays the difference in vacuum intake settings of two carburetors or throttle bodies very precisely on a single transverse "East-West" 9 LED display - visual estimation errors, common to the traditional approach which is to visually compare the individual values on separate columns of mercury or dial gauges are eliminated, as two pressures are compared and one value is displayed
  • A single green LED at the center mark indicates that the compared manifold vacuums are perfectly equal to within the selected resolution
  • A ZERO adjustment knob provides easy and quick pre-calibration prior to synchronizing; with no tubes connected simply adjust the knob until the center LED is on
  • Instrument powered by any 12V battery source (cord with clips supplied)

39 mm Flat Slide Carb Kit,
So what is the big deal about Flat Slide carbs? For a start, they have a bigger throat which allows more air and fuel to pass through them. More air and more fuel translates into more HP and TQ. More importantly, when you snap the throttle open, there is no vacuum slide delay. With a Flat Slide carb, YOU control how quickly the slide opens and how fast you accelerate. Better performance, Better throttle response, and more control.

  • Our 39 mm kit is a complete V Star 1100 specific dual carburetor kit. 
  • Bench-tuned & Road tested for best performance with after-market exhausts, High-Flow Chubby kit and performance cams
  • Our kit deliverers increased performance gains in both horsepower and torque.
  • The accelerator pump and Flat Slide design combine to offer excellent throttle response and acceleration in any riding situation.
  • The kit uses our exclusive 1 into 2 dual pull cable, finished in braided stainless to complement any custom bike
  • Supplied pre-tuned for best performance, while still maintaining good fuel economy for everyday cruising  

Bike Fitment:
Yamaha V-Star 1100 (99-Up All)

Kit Includes: 2 V Star 1100 ready 39mm Keihin Flat Slide CR carbs, 2 Chubby Filters, 1 - 1 into 2 dual pull throttle cable

Cam Info,
Please Read:

Performance Fact... SS Custom Cycle Inc, is the only company producing new steel billet replacement cam designs, that are exclusively made for the Yamaha V Star 1100. Since all of our billet cams are sold outright, without the need for a core exchange, core return or core deposit you have next to no down time or additional funds tied up. This also allows you to retain your original stock cams should you ever decide to return the bike to the stock configuration.

Ours cams are made new, they not a reground hardwelds done on a stock cast core like our competitors offer. The current cam being use by the competitors is/was designed for use in the Yamaha TT-500 dirt bike, not the 1100 V Star. Although this cam will function, we feel it does not have the correct specs for optimal performance when used in the V Star 1100. Nor does it have the durability of a steel billet replacement cam.

We not only feel that our cams are the best that can be had, we are sure of it. All of our steel billets cores are specially heat treated and feature hard-faced lobes. This process although expensive allows for an extra long wearing lobe surface and produces the highest quality cam possible.
It's a simple decision, when you want the best in performance products your only choice is SS Custom Cycle!

Thanks again for all of your support!!
Shane Scalpi, Pres.
SS Custom Cycle Inc...

See what our customers have to say!!

I have nothing but praise for your products and customer support.  I installed your cams in my '03 V Star 1100 two years ago.  The V Star rocks and draws questions and comments from observers.  One VTX 1300 rider said, "That's an 1100, right?".  I said, "Yes.".  He said, "Why is it so damned fast??".  'Nuf sed.

Wishing you and your crew well,

Mike S, MN

My whole purpose for the cams was to have better passing power at cruising speed. So far it seems to work with my wife on the back. The real challenge will be the mountains which I don't foresee a problem. I want to thank you for all your support in my venture and I do think your product will stand up to the test of time and durability unlike what “other” manufactures may claim.

Thanks again,

Steve J, CA


After leaving your shop yesterday afternoon, it only took a few traffic lights on Route 9 to put a smile on my face. By the time I was up on the highway, I was grinning ear to ear like a little kid on Christmas morning. Everything you said about your 429 CAMS was spot on!

As you know, the slab going east to Connecticut continues to rise for 10-15 miles until you see the sign on the side of the road that reads “Elevation 957 feet”. Before you installed the CAMS, pulling out from behind two or three trucks and trying to accelerate to pass them was a bit difficult especially when going up hill. NOT ANY MORE! My bike now has a steady, powerful response with just a gentle twist of the throttle, even when traveling at 70-75 mph. And you were absolutely right about the sound too. The engine is noticeably quieter at higher RPMs and I love the new deeper rich tone.

After about 40 miles of enjoying my new ability to cruise with ease on the slab, traffic got pretty heavy so I decided to get off I-84 for the remainder of my 60-mile trek home. Just when I thought I couldn't be happier with the work you did, I discovered that cruising the wonderful winding back roads of western Connecticut has gotten a whole lot more fun; the increased power in the lower RPMS dramatically reduced the amount of gear shifting I had to perform. The engine purred as I smiled my way home!

It has been a long time since I felt my hard earned money has been so well spent. After the East M&G, a 2,200 mile adventure that was my longest in three seasons on my 1100, I returned home and within a few days scheduled a ride on a 1300 at my local Yamaha dealer. I felt my Classic was not up to the task of making my dream ride to the Grand Canyon. Although I like the new technology – EFI and water cooling – of the 1300, I no longer need to give up my beloved bike. All thanks to you!

Beyond the obvious excellence of your work, I greatly appreciated all the time you spent with me, first patiently answering all my questions as I deliberated about having the CAMs installed and then after as you thoroughly went over all the things you did and what you uncovered about the condition of my bike. You are indeed a master craftsman and your generosity in sharing your extensive knowledge has made me a confirmed admirer of SS Custom Cycle.

Thanks for everything,
Tom S, CT

Performance Electronics:

Performance Coils & wires,
Fire it up with our "Hot-Shot" performance kit...
Featuring "Dyna coils" combined with our 10.4mm "TV-50" performance wires...

Nothing delivers the sparking power like our "ThunderVolt-50" ignition wires. Our 10.4mm wires use a ferrite spiral-wound core made with an exclusive copper/nickel alloy bonded by a conductive acrylic latex cover. The result is just 50 ohms/foot of resistance. Plus, they can withstand heat up to 600 degrees F and have 102,000 V dielectric strength. Other features include a heat-treated fiberglass braid, a triple-silicone outer layer, and silicone boots. 

Using our "Hot-Shot" kit will result in easier starting, a smoother and stronger running motor with better gas mileage and increased HP. This is accomplished by efficiently igniting all unspent gases within the combustion chamber… Our Hot Shot kit is a must have for anyone wanting better performance!

  • Unique electrode shape maximizes the power created by the spark plug - Diamond Fire technology
  • Electrode is a combination of performance and new technology that results in an improved flame kernel shape
  • This flame front ignites the bulk air/fuel mixture faster, moves heat into the combustion chamber faster and creates a more localized pressure front for faster pressure rise during the cylinder power stroke
  • The result is more complete combustion and an improvement in engine performance. A truly premium performance plug
  • Sold each

Shane I know you are probably getting tired of the old geezer emailing you but, yesterday I installed the E3 plugs. Well it was late and about 38 degrees outside but took it for a ride anyway. Shane this bike is GREAT!! Runs like a top and plenty of power for the old one. It just runs and sounds like a motorcycle should! It has never ran like this before and totally thanks to YOU! Let me say if you ever have anyone question you or your knowledge send them to me .. I WILL set them straight!

Thanks so much my friend
