05 Vstar 650

Howdy guys. I've been riding for about 3 years now. The vstar is my first bike. I bought the bike with the intention of growing out of it very quickly, but she's kind of grown on me. So I'm here to get some advice on giving the learner bike some TLC and turning it into something I'm more invested in and proud of.

Welcome from Atlantic Canada. You came to the right place to learn all you need to know about your VStar, or making any mods you want to do. Some before and after pics would be interesting.

When you get over the hill, one picks up speed.

Welcome from Columbus, OH! I have seen some pretty cool mods done to the 650. Snoop around there are some great displays in some of the other threads. If you get stuck on something ask away, there are plenty here willing to offer advice and assistance. Good Luck!

Welcome from East Tennessee Timothy!
As it’s been stated, lots of 650 owners here and they’re very willing to help. Pics are a must here so share a few when you get the chance.
