I recently bought a 2008 V-Star 650 Silverado for my son. He LOVES the bike (he was riding a 1976 Yamaha 650) but a previous owner altered the pipes and we're not into pipes that loud. I've been looking on eBay and Craigslist for stock pipes but I don't know what years will fit his bike. Will stock pipes from a 2000 V-Star 650 fit? What other years will fit?
My late husband always took care of these things for me. I have a cycle mechanic I trust who will do the work for us.
I looked at Cobra's web page they list the same exhaust for 98 to 03. I suspect if you are only changing the muffler you can go a little more range. They started putting Catalectic converters on in 2006 so for sure not newer than 05. This should also apply to stock.
