74K Miles & 13 years with 650 Classic
Greetings from SE Washington State. Yes, my 2000 VStar has 74K miles. 13 years of commuting to Hanford. I'm on my second set of exhaust pipes, like the first, they are stock. The heat shields vibrated off the first set.
Year 7 I needed a new stator. I should have replaced the original battery at year 6, and then my stator may have lasted longer. Oh, the front rotor is not original. I wish I would have replaced it with OEM, but it has an aftermarket ebay special, which is OK.
When the front springs started to get squishy, I put a good set of aftermarket springs in the front.
Well, after these 13 years I finally have a problem that I wanted help with. That's why I'm here now. Carb problems. More on that later...
