I did my first oil change on the new-to-me V-Star this weekend. I do NOT have the oil relocation kit (ORK). I did buy a Craftsman ATV/Motorcycle lift from Sears and what a great tool! I followed a procedure I found at Sloneservices.com for a 15-minute oil change and it went very well. I recommend this for those who do not have the ORK.

Here's the link to the site with the procedure:

I used a HiFlo filter ($5.42) and Royal Purple 20W-50 oil ($39.50). The old oil, which supposedly had only 1600 miles on it, was pretty black; the original owner said he'd had it changed in late 2006 at around 600 miles; I changed it at 2200 miles, but it was quite old.
