How many engine oil quarts require my vstar classic 650 for its first change


New oil (5 US quarts, 20w40, for motorcycles with wet clutches. Despite the bike, this does NOT generally include V-Twin oil, which is designed for bikes with separate engine and transmission oil, typically. This can greatly effect clutch and transmission efficiency and functionality.)

2007 650 yamaha vstar popping through the rear cylinder exhaust


First off did you buy it new? Second has it gone through its break in tune up yet?Did you do the re jeting? My guess is it was re jeted wrong & neeeds to be re jeted again or could also need more air(upgraded air kit) or a tfi or power comand fuel mod.My bike also poped untill I did the air & fuel upgrades & them upgrades will also give you a much needed house power needed for this rig.


Bring it to a shop & have it looked at.......


Good luck

Oil check


By now you've noticed it's not possible to sit on the bike and see the sightglass at the same time...get yourself an inspection mirror from Harbor Freight or anywhere that has tools. Get one with a handle that telescopes out. This way you can sit on the bike and use the mirror to see the sightglass. This will allow you to move the bike slightly off center and find the oil level. If it's covering the sightglass completely, it's too full. Black oil indicates a change badly needed and perhaps a filter that's not working properly. If it's still in breakin, then it's still under warranty. Get with your dealer..
