Question about 2004 Yamaha V Star Classic
Hello, I have a 2004 Yamaha V star 650 classic that needs to have it's final drive shaft replaced!!!! Can I buy a used FINAL DRIVE SHAFT for a V star 1100 and put that on my 650?! I can't find any drive shafts specifically for my model bike. Are they all universal fitting?? Please help otherwise I'm going to be walking a lot more.
The drives for a 650 and an 1100 are different part numbers, so it probably wouldn't fit.
However, you can buy what parts you need to replace here:

SOURCE: Replacing broken drive shaft
the u joints definitely need lubrication and as far as breaking a drive shaft I personally have never seen one break unless someone has been really hammering it or doing a lot of burnouts

Known issue with the 650 vstars...no recall from yamaha though. The drive shaft splines are **** and they shear off on the shaft and the side that goes in the gearbox. Gearbox (rear drive unit) = $825 Shaft = 160. Have to buy the gearbox as a whole because yamaha is greedy.

Pull the rear axle, and spacer on the brake side of wheel. Un hook brake rod and brake strut. Position yourself on the brake side of the bike and pull the rear wheel straight out of the final drive housing. Put a little grease on thhe final drive splines upon reinstalling the wheel to aid removal next time.
