Hello again, still here working on my 2000 v star from a repo auction. I just noticed the head bolt nuts on the right side of the front cylinder are loose (as in can unloosen by hand). The bike came with a box of parts and I found a hypercharger with the mounting bracket from the head bolts...
I have a 2002 Yamaha Vstar 650, it belonged to my dad and was sitting for I believe over 10 years.
I’m new in the motorcycle community and wanna get it running in his memory.
so far what I’ve done is:
new “computer” CDI
(replaced with a DYNA 3000)
New fuses (good but replaced)
So, I'm considering swapping my stock exhaust for a Vance and Hines Shortshots Staggered Exhaust (while pairing with a re-jet and a GAK). One of the things I've read is that since the V&H is free-flowing, there is a loss of low-end torque. How does this work, especially considering that my '07...

No buzzing from the starter motor.
There is no blu/white cable on the bike that it is...
Howdy everyone! Today is the day I finally start the bobber build. With only about 1 more month or so until riding season is really in full effect here in Washington I figured I'd take this time and get the 650 a little love :)
So far here's what I plan on doing to her:

Hello all, first post here!
I just bought a 2002 V-Star 650 yesterday and it has a Kuryakyn Hypercharger and drag pipes (I believe to be 2.5 inch roadburners, previous owner wasn't sure).
It has no throttle response just above idle, if I roll onto the throttle the bike sputters and if I get...
On a 650. I seen j slam will bottom out was thinking about one of the kits. The bobber cycle kit makes it a hard tail I think which would work but would be rough. What about the pacific coast anybody use it with passenger? Or one of the other kits that are the same thing
I received this bike as a non running project. Anytime I turn the key on it starts making this strange percussion noise. I think its the fuel pump activating but ive never heard one sound like this. I have posted a video on my YouTube if anyone would listen to it and tell me what their opinion...
recently picked up a sweet looking 650 custom from a friend. He had it sitting for a bit since 2014... it turns over and somewhat starts but dies right after starting for about 1-2 seconds. It can hold a better start if I spray some carb cleaner in the air vent.
I have already taken...
