Hey people. New guy here. I've owned a couple Vstars and still do. I purchased a 2000 Classic 1100 about 4 years ago with 7,800 miles on it. It now has 36,000 so I ride a lot for just the couple of months I can living in Ohio. Before that I got a hold of a 2007 Classic 650 to which my daughter now rides. I bargin hunt and I only paid $2,800 for the 1100 and $1,900 for the 650. Absolutely love the 1100. I'm pretty meticulous about servicing all my toys. Takes me about 2 weeks in the spring and fall to service everything.
It took a while but the starting clutch finally gave out on the 1100. From everything I read i have been pretty lucky to make it this far. First time I have to deal with this repair so I'll be doing some more reading and watching videos. From what I gather it's gonna be pretty simple, I hope. Thought I had photos but I must have deleted them. I'll post pics of the bikes when I can.
