1. ) Using the 10mm hex socket, remove the two bolt holding the mufflers to the frame. Next, loosen the clamps holding the front pipes to the mufflers using the 6mm hex socket. Using the wipe rags (HOT!), pull the mufflers toward the back of the bike. They should slide right out.
2. ) (This step is only required if you have an 1100 Classic with floorboards) Using the 14mm socket and wrench, loosen the two bolts holding the right floorboard until they are almost completely out, and the floorboard will hang down slightly.
3. ) Next, using the 8 mm wrench, remove the bolt holding the rear brake reservoir. Let the unit hang loose.
4. ) Using the 12mm socket, remove the two nuts on the forward exhaust pipe flange. Grabbing the front of the pipe with wipe rags, gently remove the front exhaust pipe. Take extreme care in removing the pipe as you will scratch it (like the dealer's shop always does) if you are not careful. If the copper gasket falls off the engine, just let it go. I promise you that it will be very, very HOT! Just make sure that it goes back on when you re-assemble the pipes.
5. ) Using the 8mm hex socket with the 10 in. extension (or an 8mm. \"T\" wrench) loosen the five case screws holding the filter cover. There are 3 different lengths of screws, so leave them in the cover. You don't need to remove the 3 screws holding the round \"Yamaha beauty\" cover on the filter cover, there is nothing behind this cover (It comes off easily to enable you to buy a new one from the Star Catalog for $39.95 STR-5KS27-43-02 that does not say Yamaha). Remove the filter cover. If you wrap a small square of aluminum foil over the section of frame and wiring just below the filter cover, you will avoid slopping oil over the frame of your bike.
6. ) You will find an unpolished filter hatch plug underneath which you will need to wiggle back and forth as you pull straight out to remove it. Be careful not to damage the O-rings on the cover. Wipe any grit or dirt away with a clean paper towel.
7. ) Remove the filter (pay attention to the orientation of the filter when you remove it). Wipe any sediment from the filter chamber with a clean paper towel and insert the new filter.
8. ) Reinstall all parts in the reverse order of disassembly ==== Unscrew the black plastic oil filler cap and insert the funnel into the filler hole. Engine Oil with oil filter replacement (3.28 US qt) ( 0.28 quart = 8.96 oz ) Engine Oil- Without oil filter replacement
(3.17 US qt) ( 0.17quart = 5.44oz ) ====

Start the bike and bring it up to full operating temperature. Check for any signs of leaking oil from the filter hatch and the drain plug.
When you shut the engine down, check your oil level in the sight glass on the left side lower engine case. The bike must be held level front to back and side to side. This is quite a balancing act as your head needs to be about 14" off the ground in order to see the oil level in the sight glass.

Remove the drain plug at the bottom of the rear hub ( have oil pan ready in place so oil doesn't drip on back tire. Remove the bolt on the side of that hub unit then replace the drain plug. Fill the hub unit with a hypoid gear oil (80w90) to the top of bolt hole. Then replace bolt. Do this every 3000 miles.

02 Yamaha xvs 650 dragstar classic that misfires when it warms up


First I would change all the spark plugs, and if that didn't make a difference then it sounds like the coil(s) are warming up and breaking down........when it starts to skip take a good pair of pliers with good rubber on them and pull each spark plug wire, when you get to the one that the running doesn't change then I would replace that particular coil

Replacing the oil filter


Firstly drain the oil from the crank case (it's an Allan bolt at the bottom on the left hand side). when it's completely empty of oil on the right hand side of the crank case bang in the middle of it you'll find a round chrome cover remove that and the oil filter is there.
