How's it goin everyone.

I purchased my V-Star 650 Silverado back in 2010 as my first bike and it made me fall in love with riding. After a bad stator coil put it out of commission in early 2012, I purchased a 2012 Victory Cross Country, but couldn't bring myself to get rid of the old 650. Now, 6 years later, I'm rebuilding and bobbing the old V-Star.

I'm joining the forum to join a community of riders, to look for assistance and advice, and to hear about other bikes and experiences.

Ride safe everyone!

Hi Jacob, welcome to the forum from East Tennessee. Nice looking project you’ve got going there, glad to hear you kept the 650. Please keep us updated as make progress.

Having a stator fail on a Vstar 650 is pretty rare.

On some bikes, like the original Goldwings, the failure rate over time is 100% for the stator.
