Yamaha V star Final Drive shaft

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

SOURCE: 650 V-Star Classic Bike goes into gear but won't move

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.

SOURCE: how to remove the rear tire with shaft drive

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.

Drive shaft spinning and it will not go into gear.


If you put your cycle in gear and the drive shaft spins, but the motorcycle does not move, you probably have stripped worm gears in the final drive housing. Take off the large fill cap on the side of the final drive housing and inspect the large gear visually. It is probably cheaper to buy a final drive assembly and replace the whole unit than to pay the labor and parts to rebuild it. ($700 for the 1100, $850 for the 650)

Remove rear wheel from yamaha 650 v star


The final drive has a spline shaft. Raise the rear wheel off the ground , loosen the rear axle nut, take out the axle bolt, knock out the spacer , unbolt the rear brake caliper and hang it so you do not stress the brake hose ( unhook the brake rod and unbolt the stabilizer rod for drum brakes) , grab the wheel, and slide it sideways away from the final drive. The wheel should slide right off the spline of the final drive and roll out the back under the fender. If the wheel won't slide past the final drive let the air out of the tire. Be sure to coat the spline of the final drive with moly60 paste from your local Honda dealer when reassembling.

V star 650 final drive noise


STOP RIDDING THE BIKE NOW!!   Your problem IS your final drive...  I myself had the same problem on my 99' (11,000) 650 also.   The exact same sound happened before it failed.  I just came back from a bit of a ride and was going back on the road in about 30 minutes.  Instead of jumping on the freeway, thank God I took a side road because with no sign or warning it just locked up.  I was doing about 25 mph so with a lot of fish tailing and falling forward, I was able to keep the bike from going down.  Forget 60 or 70 on the freeway!!  There was a recall on this part because the manufacturer knew it had a flaw.  The joke is, they only set the years from 04 to 06...  Well mine, others that I know and ones I have now found out, range from 98 thru 06.  So that is where you are at, you need to replace the final drive, you maybe able to save your drive shaft though.  The internal gear drive which is pressed inside has begun to brake off little pieces... Soon one if not several pieces will work its way into the drive shaft end gear locking it up and its all over.  So do not chance it. 
That is what I believe is the problem...
