Save a fortune if your crank shaft journals are damaged

If your crankshaft journals are damaged and they want you to buy a new one at a cost of $850. and bearings at $185, Say no. you can fix it. An engineering company can grind the crankshaft down for you at a cost of $42 they can source new replacement bearings from a motor car bearing specification manual which The car bearings will cost only $8. thats a saving of $985. I did this for my XVS 650 Dragstar and it's still running.

I need an owner's manual for a 2002 Yamaha 650

The best is the factory one, from Yamaha....but Clymer and Hayes make them also.

Having difficulty in selecting 2nd gear on 2013 xvs 650

Make sure the shift pedal is tight on the shift shaft/linkage. Also make sure it's not interfering with the engine case when shifting, and adjust if needed. I doubt it's a transmission issue.
