    Greetings from Texas. Recently acquired a 2005 Yamaha V Star 650. I have to say that I’m enjoying it. Currently going through essential maintenance every weekend, it’s nice to be back on two wheels.

    Hi all, does anyone know the size of the screws/bolts for adjusting the headlight beam? The heads on mine are a bit damaged from previous owner and I need to adjust, don’t want them to round off and get stuck and certainly don’t want to pay yamaha price per bolt if I dont have to!
  4. Carb and Fuel
    Has anyone experienced starting issues when bike is lying on sidestand causing fuel starvation. On my XVS 650 Custom it’s really difficult to start when resting on the sidestand but starts readily when upright. runs sweetly once it’s running suspecting an issue with floats in the carbs but...

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...

    Just thought I would stop in and introduce myself before I go too wild with this build. I'm from Poulsbo, WA and I scored a low mileage 2007 650 Classic with 4,300 miles on it last week. After a ton of research online, I decided to go ahead and build it into a bobber. I will be selling a...
  9. V Star
    Hey guys! 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...
