Comments like that won’t endear you to one of the friendliest and most helpful forums I’ve ever joined.

Your bike essentially only changed cosmetically in nearly 20 years. What’s available in print would still apply to your ride in every major repair item you’d need it for.

Found this on Ebay. Wow that 2011 cut off is everywhere.
Yamaha V-Star 650 Custom Service & Repair Manual VStar XVS650 1998-2016
thanks but that’s a cd version. Looking for a paper copy.

It's 1998 to 2016 I think the 2011 manual will work just fine. I have a 2007 650 and there weren't a lot of mechanical changes made.

@Spectra I have printed entire manuals several times and used a three hole punch to affix the pages in a three-ring binder. I get it that this is not as cool as a published manual, but I can always replace a bad page if I inadvertently tear or smudge one.

I like the paper manuals my self as trying to go from page to page on the cellphone of laptop is a hassle in the repair process. I caught myself simply printing a few pages at a time when I only had a manual digital.

I did the same for the owner's manual, shop service manual and supplement and also purchased a Clymer's manual. I would think an office supply store could do it from a pdf on a flash drive... but wont be cheap.

I bought repair manuals for years, still have them and love using them. Some pages are so dirty it's hard to see. I'm a tight wad now days. I have an old tablet that stays in my garage for just manuals and looking stuff up as needed when working on bike. Works well for me.
