Found the site years ago when looking for a manual for my first 650 Vstar. I have owned 6 Yamahas now. I had a 1976 175 Enduro (2 Stroke), 1990's 650 (I Think), 1990's 850 Maxim, 2002 650 Vstar, 2008 650 Vstar and 2014 1300 Vstar Tourer. I loved every one of them. Very few problems with any of them ever even though all were bought used although I usually dont get anything with high miles to start with. I had some kind of ignition issue where it quit getting spark with the then high miles 650 that I should have had looked at. Other than that I changed the oil regularly, use Yamaha filters, oiled the cables and drove them. I continue to be amazed with the build quality of the bikes. Although I like a (very) few Harleys I am always surprised that you can buy 2 Yamahas for the price of a Harley and do much less maintenance and repairs over time! As long as they keep the quality I will keep buying Yamahas.
