Hi y'all! New member and non Yamaha owner..... lol!

A little back story.....I'm trying to do a good deed for a friend who is getting married soon and he has a sort of not running/running 01' V Star 650.

So I'm here looking for some advice, opinions, feedback from the collective on how to get this bike going for him before the wedding.

Thanks in advance for any knowledge passed on!

Dave

Welcome from where ever i may be

Let's start with the basics: What color is it? If it's blue or red, that could be the problem
