How to learn the basics of mechanics and where to get accessories
Hey folks. I’m a newish rider with a recently acquired 2002 V Star 1100 Classic.
I love my bike, but want to make a few additions/adjustments. Namely I’d like to adjust the friction point on the clutch, add an engine guard and saddlebag brackets, and change out the grips.
I know next to nothing about mechanics. I can change a tire/oil/filters on a cage, basic stuff like that.
I’m looking for a good at-your-own-pace resource (website or book) for V Star maintenance and modification that really starts assuming zero prior knowledge.
I’d also like to know what the favored site for ordering parts and accessories is.
