Parting out 00 V-Star 650 Classic
Took my wife's seldom-ridden 2000 650 to my brother's shop and verdict is what I feared: busted starter clutch.
Much as I'd like to fix it up and sell it, the time/cost to fix the starter clutch vs. what it's worth in parts ain't good math... Plus as a 'donor' it can help other folks keep 'em on the road.
It's a good condition bike with 21,736 miles that ran great until the starter clutch went last week. Cosmetically nice too. Nothing else is broken or beat up. Biggest other issue is it's dirty after trailering it to the shop.
If anyone is looking for anything in particular, PM me and I'll give you a heads-up when parts are pulled & posted for sale.
