newbie from florida

Just picked up a 1998 vstar 650 custom, full exhaust, rejet, with 10" apes. Traded a handgun so I'm pretty happy about it. Bike runs great and looks decent. Big dent in tank but with a little effort I should be able to get it out. I'm on a tight budget. Most important mods would be lowering bike, installing different or modifying rear fender and figuring out a better seat as my man parts are being pressed on a little too firmly with stock seat. I will be looking at other posts to get info on what others have done.

Welcome to the forum ab, how about some pics of your ride? We have quite a few 650 owners here, and shop around for prices on mods you plan to make. Ride safely!

That's a great looking bike! What's the height of the bars?
