Hello, I just became an owner of a 2003 V-star 650 Silverado with 1kk miles on it. It was a gift from my dad who can no longer ride it. I just rode it from his house in FL to mine in MI.
The bike is comfortable and rode well but it seemed to lack power. All I could get was 60mph top speed. Less if going up hills. It sat for a year or so so when I got home I changed the air filter and sparks plugs and put Seafoam in the gas tank. I plan to change to oil and sync the carbs when I get time.
The bike is 100% bone stock.
