Yeah, there are quite a few Star owners on here. I own two of them. An '00 Vstar Classic 650 and an '04 Vstar Custom 650. Great bikes.Benjamin St.G said:
Anybody know of any V Star specific forums? I have a friend that is looking at them and wants more info from other owners. Any V Star owners on here?
You don't have to drop the front exhaust to change the oil filter on the 650's as far as I know. The filter is under one of the side covers on the right hand side.MrJP said:
I'm not sure about the 650's, but a friend has a VStar 1100 and you have to drop the front of the exhaust to change the oil filter. Not a big issue for him, but there are relocation kits available if necessary. Other than that, he loves the bike. No problems so far.
One minor note. They tend to click a little. I think he said it was the EGR valve.
