I got my 2011 Black VStar 650 Custom a few months ago and have put a few thousand miles on her. I have added a throttlemeister cruise, a luggage rack, and sissy bar, and not much else. I have always had 250cc motorcycles before this, so this is my first bike that I can really modify and get a little more performance out of.

I was going to do a hand-built exhaust/rejet/air cleaner, but I would need to procure an extra exhaust to cut the flanges from (since I would not want to destroy my stock exhaust). I was wondering if the exhaust flanges are the same for all Vstar 650s or if there is differences in the years...if the motor has not changed in design at all, I should be fine, but I would like to check with those more experienced and knowledgeable than I.

Thank you,
Myke

Hello Myke, welcome to the 4M

I was about to reply until I read the last dozen words of your post -:D:D

There is quite a few 650 owners on here that I'm sure will join in soon and help you out.
