Hi everyone. I'm new to the forums, but have been lurking for quite some time. I'm between SF and Sacramento, been riding for 8 years (mostly sportbikes, though) and just picked up a project: 2002 v-star 650 custom. I've been gone from the riding world for a couple years but am back and excited to get involved in the community.

I've already made great headway in restoring the 650's electrical functionality - the previous owner butchered almost all the wiring. I'm also having a little motor trouble in that it sounds like the cam chain may be loose but I'll be posting for help on that later on because I haven't found a solution searching these or other forums.

Ride safe and keep the shiny side up!

Welcome to the 4M.
Working on the engine I'd start by picking up a shop manual.

Welcome to the forum. I'm sure once you get that manual and post on here, you'll have tons of help.

Ride safe and keep it shiny side up.
