I have put 14000 miles on my 05 V Star 1100 and I haven't adjusted the
valves yet. Is this a no no? If so does anyone know how often they need to
be adjusted?

Obviously neither of you have read the manual. I think the interval for
checking/adjusting the valves on most Yamaha's with shim type adjusters is
26,000 miles. The V Star may be screw and nut type, I'm not exactly sure.
It probably wouldn't hurt to at least check them on the 1100.

Sounds like the maintenance schedule was formulated to be a major
contributor to the dealer retirement fund.
