Question about 2005 Yamaha V Star Silverado

1 Answer

Oil check I own a 2007 vstar 650 silverado. I'm having trouble reading the oil level, I don't see any line showing the oil line, its only black, and this is with the bike upright. Hasn't been ridden much and is still in the break in period. How noticeable is the difference where the oil line should be. Also exactly were are the fill lines next to the glass? Thanks for any info!!!

By now you've noticed it's not possible to sit on the bike and see the sightglass at the same time...get yourself an inspection mirror from Harbor Freight or anywhere that has tools. Get one with a handle that telescopes out. This way you can sit on the bike and use the mirror to see the sightglass. This will allow you to move the bike slightly off center and find the oil level. If it's covering the sightglass completely, it's too full. Black oil indicates a change badly needed and perhaps a filter that's not working properly. If it's still in breakin, then it's still under warranty. Get with your dealer..

I need to know what kind of real end oil should i use on my 2007 yamaha vstar classic 650


For the final drive oil you can use any 80/90 Hypoid gear oil. If you choose a synthetic Hypoid gear oil your rear end will run cooler. One quart of oil is enough for 4 or 5 rear end oil changes. Because the rear ends are so expensive (around $1000), I change my rear end oil every other engine oil change.

What happens if you put too much oil when you do an oil change in a Vstar Silverado?


You might pop a seal , tear a gasket, or fill your air box with oil fowling a perfectly good air filter. Place a clean pan under the drain plug and without completely removing the plug bleed out enough oil to get the correct level in the bike. Then, save the oil for topping up or your next change.

Riding a 2007 650 vstar encountered some acceleration issues when opening the throttle about 1/2 way. Engine seems to stumble and miss. Added some stabilizer and some Lucas injector cleaner. Changed oil at...


Stars seem prone to fuel system issues, mine keeps me amused with its antics. I usually take it for a good romp now and then to show it who's boss.
I'd suggest changing gas stations to avoid the ethanol additive which causes gumming up of some fuel lines, disintegration of others and somehow manages to hydrate the gasoline to where it burns irregularly. Additives will be your salvation if you can't escape the ethanol.

How many engine oil quarts require my vstar classic 650 for its first change


New oil (5 US quarts, 20w40, for motorcycles with wet clutches. Despite the bike, this does NOT generally include V-Twin oil, which is designed for bikes with separate engine and transmission oil, typically. This can greatly effect clutch and transmission efficiency and functionality.)

Oil level above full line


It's quite possible that when you fill the motor you are checking the oil level shortly thereafter, i.e. within 10 minutes, or you are filling the oil and checking what the level is BEFORE starting the motor (in this case the oil has not had chance to circulate and drain back in to the sump). Once the bike stands for an extended period (a couple of hours or overnight) you will find that the oil has drained from the head of the motor, and other places, back into the sump and therefore shows at a higher level in the sight gauge.
