Yamaha XV1900A Roadliner / Stratoliner Maintenance Schedule and Service Intervals

2010 Yamaha Roadliner S- Stock Image

This is the maintenance schedule and associated service intervals for the Yamaha XV1900A, which was sold as the Roadliner or the Stratoliner (the touring version).

The Yamaha XV1900A was marketed as the Roadliner and the Stratoliner, depending on the configuration (the former a cruiser, and the latter a touring bike). It was also sold as a Straoliner S, Stratoliner Midnight Star (or at its longest, Midnight Star Casual Full Dress), and various other configurations.

But at their base, all the XV1900A (whether a Yamaha Roadliner or Yamaha Stratoliner) motorcycles have an 1854cc pushrod V twin with 48 degrees of separation. They’re fuel-injected, air-cooled, and push out around 99 hp (72 kW) and of course a massive amount of torque — 167 Nm (123 ft-lb) at an absurdly low 2,250 rpm. Final drive is through a wet clutch and a belt.

The maintenance schedule is the same for all of them.
