No, there are not. I reviewed Yamaha's complete list of Service Bulletins, which includes recalls, and there is not any bulletin addressing the issue your bike has. I have heard of it before, where the screws fall out and the lock mechanism falls off, but I have not seen a bulletin on that subject.
The good news would be, at least they fell into the tank where you can get them out and reassemble your cap. It would be a good idea to mentally note the screws that hold the mechanism together from now on anytime you gas the bike up.

I bought a 2004 yamaha v star custome 650 but the ignition coils were missing how do i put the new ones back in


From what I recall, they are accessed by removing the seat.

Take off the Pillion seat to reveal the nut for the driver's seat. Remove this and then you should have exposed the coils (amongst other things).

Gas cap... when you put the key in the gas cap, the key turns but it doesn't move the peg thingy that moves to open it. How should I get it off?


Try Pushing down on the gas cap the same time you turn the key. If that doesn't work then you will have to try and get the key tumbler out of the cap to get to the locking mechanism and take the cap off. Once you do this you will have to get a new gas cap.

2001 v star 650 classic won't idle after being stored


You have a gummed up mainjet. Always store a gas engine with Staybul gas additive to avoid this problem in the future. Now, on to the current problem. Since the bike will at least idle your in luck. Just go down to an auto parts store and get a can of Sea Foam. I usually find it at NAPA it's a white can that looks like it came from a gas station in the 1940's Because it did. Mechanics have been useing it for years. Anyway, dump about half the can in the tank with a couple gallons of gas and fire it up. Let it idle a long time. Then start trying to ride it. You may have to let it set over night if it's really gummed up but it will clean it out. Easy fix, and you can leave it in with no problems. Happy motoring.

I RIDE A 2003 650 V-STAR CUSTOM. I TOOK IT IN FOR


It sounds like they pinched the vent tube under the tank. There is a hose connected to the bottom of the tank that runs to the bottom of the bike. It allows air to enter the tank so you don't get vapor lock from the motor sucking fuel. You'll need to take the tank off and make sure the lines aren't pinching anywhere. I would call the mechanic and make him fix it and any damages to the tank.

Gas cap v star 650


best bet would be to get a new one also remembering how much the dealers charge for there products i would go aftermarket threw partsunlimited, cruiser, or Tucker rocky but the dealer still has to order it for you, all have great quality products at cheaper prices than O.E.M replacements unless your still under warranty.
