Question about Yamaha XS 650 C Motorcycles

1 Answer

I have an 03 vstar classic which had cobra drag pipes on it. The guy I bought it from dropped the bike and lost the lower extension. I bought a set of factory exhaust from ebay and put it on the bike. It sounds like a sewing machine. Will it hurt my bike if I take off both extensions or drill out the baffles to get some sound outta this thing again?

Have a 04 Yamaha V Star 1100 Classic, want to install Cobra Slip On Drag Pipe exhaust, is it necessary to have bike jetted?


It is not essential but the static timing may need to be advanced slightly to compensate for the different back pressure.

Where does the oil come out of a 2004 Yamaha 1100 VStar Classic


Oil drain plug is located near the bottom of the engine, left side toward the front. The oil filter element is located on the right side of the engine under the cover toward the front. Changing the oil filter usually requires removal of the front exhaust pipe. There is an aftermarket filter relocation kit that replaces the filter element with a spin on filter that mounts on the front of the bike.

Rejetting a Yamaha Vstar 650


No it will not. You probably don't NEED to rejet at all. If the manufacturer suggests it for your bike and pipe combination I would follow their advice. If they do not suggest it I would use a dyno to get the best performance from your new setup. Keep in mine your new exhaust only lowers the back pressure. You haven't changed the intake parameters at all as far as airflow. So any additional air going into the cylinders due to your new exhaust will only be because of the reduced volume in the cylinder while the intake valve is open. This is a rather small amount, so don't get all crazy and jump several jet sizes at once.

I just bought a used '03 650 vstar. I started it up and took it for a test drive and pulled it into my garage. My room mate was out there for quite some time checking out the bike. No idea what he did, but...


Colud your room mate have accidentally put the bike in gear? There is a switch on the kickstand that will killl the engine if kickstand is down and bike is in gear.

Change oil in 2004 Yamaha V Star 1100 Classic, procedure?


i think the oil filter is at the front behind a round finned cover, if you find the drain plug it should be right above it, it shoud tell you how much oil it takes right next to the filler

Electrical trouble


If all the fuses turn out good especially the main fuse then you might want to check your starter solenoid. Try jumping the two leads on the solenoid if the bike starts then most likely the solenoid is bad. If it doesn't start then it could be two other things. 1- your Ignitions might be shoot. tell tail signs. Bike cutting out during the ride and bike loses power when you hit the starter button but power returns when you turn the key off then back on. 2- The Rectifier might be gone. The rectifier will cause many different problem that might have you chasing carb problems, to the bike won't start at all with no cranking
