First tool to get is a torque wrench.

Dont touch your bike with a wrench till you have one, and you look up all the torque specs in the "Yamaha Factory Service Manual VStar 650" which you can google and download for free as a pdf file.

BTW you dont have to be crazy to hang around here, we'll train you.

For those of us that have photos posted of our bikes, you can see them in the Garage page

<= over there
