You mean rings or ring ? there are 2 of them..

anywaym use a hammer and pliers and fit it back into place. then use a spanner wrench to adjust the preload ring(s).

tighten it up and see if it holds, if not replace it.

Xvs 650 wiring diagram


Hi, Anonymous before diagnosing any turn signal/running light/parking light issue make sure the bulb is good and the light fuse has continuity with a test light. If you have replaced you OEM lights with LED lights you are going to need a load equalizer. If no turn signals work the cause could be a faulty turn signal module or the connector going to it, look for corroded, loose, or broken pins/sockets. Contact spray cleaner is great for removing corrosion. If your speedometer does not function properly it will have to be fixed first because your turn signal module gets the data from the speedometer for normal turn signal function. If your front turn signals don't work use a test light to check for power and ground at the bulb socket, then start backtracking the wiring through every wire connector to the turn signal switch/button and check for continuity, go all the way back to the fuse if necessary to find the cause of the malfunction. If your rear turn signals don't work check your rear fender wiring harness connector first for corroded, broken, loose pins/sockets, power, and a good ground, (the harness connector is usually located under the seat on the front of the rear fender) then keep tracing the wiring look for obvious harness damage caused by the rear tire. If you still can't find the malfunction backtrack from the rear fender wiring harness connector. If one side does not work you could have a faulty turn signal switch or module check for continuity.

1999 Yamaha XVS 650 Dragstar backfires


Hi, Thomas and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery, should have 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
2. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
3. Faulty main circuit breaker and or connections.
4. Faulty ignition coil and or connections.
5. Faulty spark plug, oil or gas fouled, wrong heat range or service type, wrong gap, loose in the cylinder head, broken electrode or insulator.
6. Faulty spark plug cables, leaking or broken, internal damage check for spark leakage in the dark.
7. Faulty ignition module, switch, CKP, MAP, CMP, sensor and or any connector in the ignition circuit could have corroded, loose, or broken pins/sockets
8. Burnt exhaust valve or air leak in the exhaust system.

Hi i have purchased a yamaha xvs 650 vstar classic 2003 model fitted with BUB exhaust pipes and i am getting poping and back fireing when decellarating and have been told the carby may need rejetting,could...


If the mechanic did not replace the exhaust pipe gaskets in the head or on any connections between the head pipes and the mufflers , the air leaks could be igniting unburned fuel in the exhaust , causing the popping and back firing. Try replacing any gaskets in the exhaust system.
If you have a flat spot or hesitation when accelerating than you probably also need to rejet the carburetors. Bigger main jets should fix that condition. A jet kit may also contain differently tapered needles for the slides to help compensate for the change in the acceleration curve.

Xvs 650 dragstar timing chain adjustment. how do you do it?


That engine uses automatic cam chain adjusters. There is no manual over-ride or adjustment. If the cam chain is loose, you need to replace the adjuster at the least and possibly the cam chain and guides.

I need to remove rear wheel for tire change on 2003 vstar 650


Hi .... The Xs is conventional, ie straight out the back. Put a plank of wood or something similar under the centre stand, this'll give you a bit of extra height and once the spindle is out the wheel will come out slightly to one side. Problem comes if someone has fitted an aftermarket custom exhaust which reduces egress. Also if you still have standard twin exhausts you may have to lower swingarm (by disconnecting lower shock bolts (thus the plank) to remove spindle. Remember to note spacers as it comes apart and regrease spindle on re-assembly.
