Thank You Kindly Old V Star Man, still getting adjusting the Knuckle Beach Bar, gotta pick up some new grips, and then get the lighting reassembled before I take any pics... I work late, and 7 days a week currently, so I gotta get up the motivation to get out there early to play with it somemore... Its my first bike, and still trying to learn how to ride, but I got some of the basics down...

Ride Safely Brother, and Enjoy the Wind for me would ya!

Hi Dragon, welcome to the forum. Theres a lot of 650 owners here that are very willing to help and answer all of your questions. Just a suggestion and being your first bike, get a good quality repair manual. They are priceless when it comes to repairs and upgrades. Ride safe and post often.

Definitely Great Advice for a Newbie to have, and I Thank You for the suggestion Keith Brother! Though I'm new to Motorcycles, I grewup wrenching, and I learned a longtime ago that when buying any vehicle used, its always best to pick up an Owners Manual, a Chilton/Clymer/Haynes Repair Manual, and if cost effective, then also the Factory Service Manuals... So first purchases after I bought my star, was an Owners Manual, and a Clymers manual... Cheers Brother, and Enjoy the Wind!

Welcome to the forum eh. Great scoot you got and it'll give you lots of great times. The only other thing that would benefit you with the bike is taking a riders course.

Ride safe and keep it shiny side up.
