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

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.

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.
