I Just Bought A 06 V Star 1100 Looks Like The Guy Never Changed The Oil Is There Something I Can Put In To Clean Out The Engine/trans Ty Rich
Just what I would do, change oil while good and hot, NEW FILTER,

with good oil, then again soon, maybe 1000-1500, thats just me, I

think the bad stuff will be gone with that.

Oil treatment

Starman,

I agree with Sugar Bear, your owners manual tells us not to use oil additives or oil with friction reducers because the clutch is lubricated with engine oil. Some have but, not knowing I would not.

Looking at oil is a poor measure of how often its been changed. Todays oils are far better than the oil change inervals in any manual dictates. Just change the oil using yamaha lube along with the filter and ride on. If you are convinced it hasnt been changed for more than 10K or more run it 500 miles and do another change. Nothing more than doing exactly this will help solve any prior abuse.
