Question about 2004 Yamaha V Star 1100 Classic
How do I change oil and filter in a 2004 Yamaha V Star 1100 Classic and how much oil does it hold? Thank you
The oil filter is behind the cover with the "Yamaha" plate on the lower right side. You have to remove the front exhaust header to get at all of the bolts. It's a lot of work (~two hours) to change a filter, which is why there are several aftermarket options to re-locate the VStar oil filter.
History - The filter is poorly located because it's the same engine as the 1990's Yamaha Virago 1100 which had no frame and exhaust going under the bike, which made the filter easy to get at. The VStar puts the Virago engine in a more Harley style bike with a frame and dual side pipes that now get in the way of that oil filter cover.
