If the particular tires are matched as compatible to your bike, they'll work, even is mismatched as a pair. There are benefits to having a matched pair, such as more even treadwear, and smoother reaction when following road grooves. There are always differences in 'feel' when you switch tires--each tire (even if you are replacing with the same make/model), as a new tire has more tread than the old one being replaced (unless you're replacing due to punctures or other defects).
Will it be a problem? It won't be the absolute BEST possible ride, but really not a problem. As always, with a new fresh tire, be sure to take it easy for the first 100 miles, to get used to the feel, and to wear off the factory shine. You're comfort and familiarity is really the potential problem with a new tire--expect that the ride will be different, the handling, etc. For each major road condition type, be sure to test the behavior. Curves that are banked vs. flat, road surfaces (concrete vs. blacktop), rubberized roads vs. traditional, stopping/breaking, swerving, etc. As you face each condition with the new tire, keep caution at your side.
Tire composition, and analysis is a potetentially very scientific. One could argue for a lifetime, and on paper, these things can be compared constantly, but it all comes down to first hand experience in use. Personally, I prefer to used matched sets when buying new ones, but at the same time, I like to explore the advances and cost savings from a variety of manufacturers. New compositions and designs from the 'off brand' mfgs are getting REALLY good nowadays. I have yet to be really disappointed when trying some of the new brands for my vintage honda. I do try to stay away from the absolute cheapest tires, and always do match tire type (radial vs. bias), and especially, load range and speed ratings. Make sure the new tire matches these three requirements and you'll likely really like the performances vs. an old worn tire.

i use a jump box on mine most weekends when i wanna take it out, i hook the red to battery and black onto my exhaust and it fires right up no problem. is the clicking noise coming from the fuel pump behind the ignition? it should click for a few seconds then stop. if it stays on then you are not getting enough fuel outta the tank, change the fuel filter and if bike had been stored for winter get a good fuel system cleaner, additive type. if in USA get Berrymans B12, double dose get bike to run hopefully let it stand overnight and all should be fine. fingers crossed. if is is clicking from somewhere else like starter or a relay by the battery, check all the ground terminals you can find

I want to know- if there is a big difference between a 2001 v-star classic and , say a 2005 or 06 v star classic. Are the newer ones lighter, or advanced in some way, enough to make a difference?

No it will not. You probably don't NEED to rejet at all. If the manufacturer suggests it for your bike and pipe combination I would follow their advice. If they do not suggest it I would use a dyno to get the best performance from your new setup. Keep in mine your new exhaust only lowers the back pressure. You haven't changed the intake parameters at all as far as airflow. So any additional air going into the cylinders due to your new exhaust will only be because of the reduced volume in the cylinder while the intake valve is open. This is a rather small amount, so don't get all crazy and jump several jet sizes at once.

Perusal of a parts manual shows the bulbs to be in sockets with wires hooked to them which press into the outer back of the speedometer head, remove the offending socket (the one on the top, the other 4 are the function lamps I previously mentioned) by gently pulling it outward, the bulb will slide out for replacement.
Have fun and good luck.
