    V Star
    I have fire in the front cylinder but nothing on the back cylinder of my 2001 V Star 650. I old coil was shorted. I have replaced it with a new one and still nothing. The coil starts to get hot after a while with the ignition on. The front one remains cool. I've swapped out the coils. Both...

    Looking to purchase a 2004 Carb from a Yamaha vstar 650 to put onto my 2001 Yamaha vstar 650. Does anyone know if they are compatible? I have done some research and notice a part number difference in the carb itself however the rebuilt kits say they are the same? Thank you

    Wanted Items

They're not awfully loud, but the neighbors don't like them. I'm also wondering if the backfiring on deceleration, might be partially due to the...
