Battery replacement and parts for Yamaha Dragstar XVS 400

Hi! I'm looking for the best battery replacement for yamaha dragstar XVS 400. I had CT12B-4 so far but as I can see it doesn't last long especially if you cannot ride your bike on regular basis. Because it's an import bike it's difficult to find proper informations and spares to it. I'd like to buy an engine guard as well but I have to buy it without actually checking if it's gonna fit my bike. Apparently it supposed to have exact measurements like XVS 650 but to be honest have no idea if it's true. Can anyone help me with that? I'd really appreciate it!

Hi there,

the best battery replacement for your bike would be a low-maintenance sealed battery. Sealed types last longer but they are expensive. XVS650 is a fit but make sure you specify if its either a custom or a classic, they get confused by these.

I"d recommend the linbar by lindby customs for the engine guard. THey're practical.

Hope this helps,

    Hi Levibit,
    I'd like to ask something too. :D
    Is there a service manual for Dragstar 400 that i can download for free? i just found the manual for 650, 1100 etc. There's no Dragstar 400 or XVS400 is the list of Yamaha product on their website.
    Thanks so much.

I have a yamaha xvs 650 vstar 2007 ,I went out on my bike everthing ok ,after stopping for about half an hour went back to bike and tried to start clicked twice and lost all power no lights on dash no horn...


I have a similar problem, and a friend who has the same model as me says the dragstars are notorious for battery wear, especially standard batteries, he also suggested I tried a motobatt battery as they have 20% more power on ignition than a standard type, if that doesn't cure it then look towards the solenoid, that is what I plan on doing, if I find the root cause I will let you know and if you do, you will have to tell me, good luck to both of us.
