  1. 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. V Star
    Hey guys, lately I’m noticing, I can not go passed 85 miles an hour without my fuel cutoff or speed limiter kicking in.. and it bothers me. I ride with a MC and in certain situations I need to speed up but I can’t and it takes me a billion years to catch up. I need help solving this issue :(.

It has a stock air box and an aftermarket exhaust system. I seem to get really low fuel mileage too. I know that I should some tuning to the...

  8. Wanted Items
    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
  9. V Star
    So I just rebuilt the flywheel in my 2008 Yamaha V-Star 1100 Classic. Had to replace starter clutch at many V-Star owners have done from my reading. So we get all of that done. Then when we start the bike it had a clanking noise. So I knew timing was off. Took the top end of the rear cylinder...

    So I’m pretty new to the bike scene, street wise anyway. Grew up on dirt bikes. Recently I got a 2017 vstar 1300, it was dropped and needs a bit of work. I want to build a bobber, but have not been able to find any similar builds or info with such a new bike. And any of the “kits” for bobber...
