Question about 2004 Yamaha V Star 1100 Classic
You will need about 3.2 quarts of oil. Also, you may not be aware but unless yours has been fitted with an oil filter relocation kit, it will need to have the front header pipe (exhaust pipe) removed to get the filter out. If you don't know when the filter was changed last, make sure to change that too. I think the owner's manual only says you have to change the filter every other oil change, but it's so cheap, I prefer to do it at every oil change. Also, don't just use any old oil. The bikes have a wet clutch, meaning the clutch is immersed in the motor oil, so you can't use the Energy Conserving oils, like a lot of the oils you use in a car. Buy a dedicated motorcycle oil. Yamalube can be obtained easily, and most auto parts places have motorcycle oils also. If you live in a warm climate, use a 20w-50. If you live in a cooler area you may want to go with a 10w-40, especially if you want to ride until the snow flies.
