  1. V Star
    I bought this motorcycle four days ago with only 2,500 miles on it from an elderly gentleman and it had been riding fine up until last night. I had noticed the smell of a little bit of fresh gas every once in a while but thought nothing of it. I was at a stop sign, put the bike in first and...
  2. V Star
    Hey! Purchased a 05 vstar 1100 for my first bobber project. Stripped the bike and just finished putting it back together. Installed new led tail light flashers ext. Everything was working last week when I finished building the bike. Was going to take it out for the first time today and...
  3. New Riders
    Hey I’m looking at getting a Vstar and I don’t know whether to get the 650 or the 1100 starting out. I feel the 650 would be a better starter but I’ve currently been driving a 1200 Goldwing(Dad’s bike) and I’m looking to get my own soon. The biggest thing is that I wanna take it on 2+ hour...
  4. Oil and Lubrication
    Hello everybody, I'm new to the forum and this is my first post. Just had a quick question regarding an oil change. I just got my bike a little over a month ago and I'm looking to do an oil change this weekend. I have everything I need, or at least I thought, because my oil drain pan won't fit...
  5. General Bike Talk
    Recently I’ve done work to my 2008 VStar 1100. Allow me to take a second to elaborate on all the work done to see if possibly they are contributing factors. We put a full exhaust kit. Cobra drags. We didn’t jet the carburetors, but did sync them with a vacuum tester device. We then installed a...
  6. Exhaust
    Alright, so because my home state (unforfunatley) is CA, all I can seem to do is get ahold of Universal exhausts. So my question is, if you were to pull off the stock mufflers, what size would the pipe the stock muffler attaches be. I do not have a tape measure and I couldn't find a conclusive...

  8. V Star
    Ok, bought this gauge for the 650. I don't like not knowing how much fuel is in the tank, and frankly, going off what I see inside, means absolutely nothing to me (lol). I get the gauge, and no instructions are included. Went back to the site, and they have nothing either. When I looked at the...
  9. V Star
    Hello, everyone. I hope everyone is having a good day/night. I just recently bought a V star 650 Classic (01) for $1,500. The person who sold it to me said he was selling it for so cheap because he said he messed up the carburetor trying to do a DIY job. Something to do with either the needle...
