That's difficult to answer not knowing your automotive repair aptitude. Someone who does most of their automotive repairs can easily work on a bike. Have you completed tune-ups, complete brake jobs, changed shocks, replaced starter, etc? Is your Vstar a 650? Google and download the owner's manual and repair manual, they are free online. After you have read them and have a specific question post it here for best exposure and feedback.I am not sure how to even go about seeing if it runs. Never ridden a motorcycle before.
I appreciate all the help, but I do not know if I have the time for all of that. I dont have any experience with working on automotive. How should I go about selling it? Its a 650 Silverado. Sat for 3-5 years maybe? Not really sure. Im worried I do not have the time to fix nor the time or want to ride after attempting to get into riding condition.
Thanks for all the replies.
where do you live?
if you sell the bike when its not running you will get several hundred dollars for it, because a buyer will have to assume the worse and only pay you what its worth as spare parts
You also run the risk a buyer might come over, put gas in the tank and a new battery, attempt to start it, and suck a bunch of goop into the carbs and really make an expensive mess to repair.
if you can find someone in your area to either help you get it running, or to spend a few hours on it for a reasonable price.
If the bike runs well, depending on the mileage on the odo, it would be worth $1500 to $3000 (US dollars).
