Hi.

It is difficult to say what happened. After installing the kit the mechanic has surely checked oil pressure.
There is no known issue with the Jardine oil relocation kit.
One thing that you could have checked after the incident is if there was oil in the oil filter housing. If there was no oil in there, then it is not the kit responsible, but the oil pump that has failed.

    The longer plug of the alluminium component goes toward the motor. If that was installed incorrectly, then you would have found the part in the wrong way after the engine was seized.

    All you can do is complaining with the dealer, but unless you find a part that is broken or not well placed (unlikely), you cannot blame the mechanic.

    Here fitting instructions that are much better than the ones provided by manufacturer. The device is very simple. I don't think that the mechanic could have installed this wrong. Installation of the kit is a job that can be done by the home user.

Hi
The Jardine kits have a very good reputation & apart from an odd o-ring missing I have never heard any complaints.
But you obviously had oil starvation at the rear
I suggest your dealer has messed up & either does not realise it or is being dishonest to you

Ride Safe

Do you have to drop the exhaust to change the oil filter on a 2000 yamaha 1100 v-star


Yes, unless you want to spend $250 on a Baron oil filter relocation kit. http://www.motoshop.net/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=BA264000&Category_Code=BARONS&Store_Code=AIM Or $275 on a Jardine oil filter relocation kit. http://www.cruisercustomizing.com/detail.cfm?Category_ID=108&manufacturer_ID=7&product_ID=6715&sblid_name=Jardine_Chrome_Oil_Filter_Relocation_Kit___ V_Star_______ If you choose to stay with the stock set up, consider keeping new exhaust gaskets handy in case you start to experience popping and backfiring caused by leaking exhaust gaskets on the head pipes.

Need procedure for changing oil filter element


Unbolt the exhaust from the cylinder head to access the oil filter. For around $400 you can buy a kit that moves the filter to a better location. You may need to replace your exhaust gaskets if you experience popping in the exhaust after the filter change.

Could u please tell me if i have to adjust the fuel ststem on my yamaha xvs v star 03 after installing jardine slash cuts whitch do have a baffle


Yes , to get rid of the flat spot that you get from opening up the exhaust system, you will have to put in a jet kit. Cobra and Dyna Jet make make good kits for $60 to $100. Another product replaced at this time is the air filter. A K&N air filter will create more air for better breathing.

Where is the oil filter on my yamaha V-star 1100


On the right side of the bike (right side when ou are sitting on it) just above the rear brake lever behind a small circular plate. remove the plate and the oil filter is inside (you will easily see it). Warning---on these bikes you have to drop the front exhaust header and right floor board in order to change the oil filter unless you install a after market oil filter relocation kit. If you plan on changing your own oil it is highly recommended to install this relocation kit.

V-Star Tune Up


the stuff it came with is just fine. your bike shop where you buy the oil from will give you what they deem best for your bike, oil weights depend on where you are and ride. a K&N airfilter will help it breath better than the standard one but it wont do much for the performance. i have jardine pipes on mine i believe it was re-jetted when the previous owner installed them but i run a standard air cleaner and all is fine.

Changing oil filter---cobra exhaust


Yes, you have to get an oil filter relocation kit. It will move the oil filter to between the front frame rails, and make it easy from then on. Besides that, no.
