New rider and new to me bike.

Hello everyone. I just purchased a '00 V-Star 650 Classic. I'm not a fan of the paint job but I'll be fixing that soon. Now I just need to get her running.

Welcome to the forum wet glove. Nice ride for sure. Don't be shy to post often. There's tons of good folks on here and all want to help out a fellow rider. Post your question in the vstar forum and our 650 experts will be along to help you resolve this issue. A warning, you may get your fare share of ribbing. Just give back and see what happens Tell us more about yourself, where your from, how long in the saddle, are you immune to CCitiss.

Ride safe and keep it shiny side up.

Well I'm from a small town near Winston-Salem, NC. This bike is kind of like my divorce gift to myself. I haven't even been in the saddle yet. This is my first bike too. I plan to post a few pics of my conversion from the way I bought her to what she wants to be. I just need to get her running.

Congratulations ! (on the bike not the divorce). I'm new to riding as well and really love my 650. You will find this to be a great forum with lots of folks that have experience and can help with your mods and upgrades. Have fun!

Don't worry about the divorce. I'm glad it happened. It just sucked finding out my wife had been ridden more times than Greyhound. lol

Welcome Wet Glove! (OK Corsair, you definitely won that round of 'best knock off make fun of the new guy name game')

I'm not sure what you don't like about the paint job - but then I'm into unusual paint jobs with very unusual airbrushing (and I like spiders and the black widow too!).

'ridden more than greyhound. . . . ' makes me laugh and hurt all at the same time . . .
