I have aftermarket headers on my 85 Monte Carlos my starter went out how would I remove the starter and taken out with the aftermarket headers in it there's no room to clear to bring it out

You will have to undo the exhaust at the collector flanges, then loosen of the header bolts/nuts but don't take them all the way out.
This should give you enough room to get the starter motor out as the headers should be able the swing out a little.

I have a 2000 Honda VT1100 Sabre Shadow. It's got aftermarket Vance and Hines pipes. It continues to have a backfire when moving up through the gears. I've had the jets (and K&N filter and plugs)...

When you installed the Vance and Hines pipes did you use new gaskets? Popping and backfiring is often caused by leaking copper o-rings in the head to head pipe connection , or head pipe to muffler gasket. Sealing the system will prevent oxygen igniting the unburned fuel in the exhaust pipe. Hopefully , this is all you need to stop the popping.

Where does the oil come out of a 2004 Yamaha 1100 VStar Classic

Oil drain plug is located near the bottom of the engine, left side toward the front. The oil filter element is located on the right side of the engine under the cover toward the front. Changing the oil filter usually requires removal of the front exhaust pipe. There is an aftermarket filter relocation kit that replaces the filter element with a spin on filter that mounts on the front of the bike.

2003 Honda VT 750 DCB Shadow Spirit. Have Vance

Be sure to properly oil the K&N filter after you've cleaned it. Then verify that the jetting is correct by operating at full throttle (only for as long as safe conditions will allow) then stop the engine and look at the color of the spark plugs. White coloration of the plugs = too lean. Dark spark plugs = too rich. A nice tan or light brown color = perfect.
Running with jetting that's too rich, or too lean, can both cause driveability problems, poor performance and reduced spark plug life.
While you're in there, inspect the spark plug caps for damage, cracking, and signs of electrical 'leakage' (carbon tracking which are conductive, visible lines running down the length of the cap, inside or out). Replace any plug caps that look suspicious. Tip: WD-40 works as a great, non conductive cleaner for plug caps and high tension leads.

2007 night train vance & hines pipes & fuel pack w/K&N air filter. Just discovered oil on top of rear cylinder

It probably isn't oil, it's more than likely fuel mixed with carbon due to running too rich. check your settings on the fuel pak.

Oil blowing out of exhaust

Run it out, The oil has collect in the exhaust media and baffles. Iver fill can cause this proble. As long as it has oil in it, run it out (burn it out) If the oil is low when you ck it, and that should be often, Then note it. Valve guide wear is progressive and the engine would smoke. Keep the oil level proper and take it on a mellow ride, no hard throttling. You should see an improvement after about 20 miles down the freewayat 60. Just stay alertand pay attention to the sound of the motor. Good luck and let me know when you get back.

Will a Vance & Hines Supersport Exh from a FZR750 work on a 1000

I don't know if separate headers were available, but if you can get the pipes to fit and seal so there is no noisy blow-by, any loss in performance would hardly measure.

Please rate this solution. Thanks!

Change oil in 2004 Yamaha V Star 1100 Classic, procedure?

i think the oil filter is at the front behind a round finned cover, if you find the drain plug it should be right above it, it shoud tell you how much oil it takes right next to the filler
