Hello everyone

Hey guys and gals. New guy here from Austin TX. My name is Jesse, and I just moved here to Austin TX. I am actually on here in reference for my Mom. She has a 08 V-Star 650, and hasn't even ridden it yet. She didn't get a owners manual with it when she bought it and she isn't sure what fuel to run in it as recommended by the owners manual. I used to, and plan to again, own a Yamaha R1 and I only ran premium in it but this V-star is much different than my previous R1. The V-star does have aftermarket pipes(Don't know the brand) and the G.A.K. air kit(or something like that).
Thanks everyone!

Welcome to the 4M #2 (in case you're counting)

I'm certain if you search on-line you can find an owners manual and/or a shop manual to download. Do this and then you will be able to print out a hard copy for all future official Yammi answers. This is suggestion #1 (in case you're counting)

This is my #3,073rd post (in case I'm counting)

Welcome! Regular gas should be fine on your mom's 650. I run regular on my 1100.

Welcome to the insanity!

My owners manual (downloaded from a link I found in this forum and printed out on my desk jet printer) says to use pump octane 86 (which translates to regular) but that's for an 1100. 650 may have a different spec



Just found an owners manual you can download here (second link from the top). Hope this helps

Thanks for the link M'Lady! And thanks for the welcomes everyone else!

Stratowart: I'm not actually counting but I am a member of many forums and it seems a bit lazy to have the time to actually click on, view, and read a welcome post. But not have a few more seconds just to type "Welcome to the forum"
