SOURCE: top of final gear there is a knob where oil is leakin

" Top of final gear ", If you mean the output sprocket then the oil seal needs to be replaced. Not a big deal to do. If the knob you refer to is on top of the gearbox then you probably are referring to the crankcase breather tube. A bit of oil here is normal especially as a bike gets older. Blow-by from the cylinders goes into the crankcase and the out the breather tube. The only way to stop the oil is to bore the cylinders and put in new pistons and rings.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: i have a 1100 v star can i change the oil and put

You can use it if it is JASO MA certified motorcycle oil but if you drive your cycle in warm weather the thin oil will burn off the cylinder walls. In other words keep an eye on the oil level or you may find yourself a quart low. It is not worth the minor horse power increase of thin oil to risk running low on oil in hot weather. If your driving in Canada or Norway in winter it should work great.

What is the recomended oil for a 2000 yamaha v star 1100


Any oil with a JASO MA motorcycle rating. 10w-40 for colder climate or 20w-50 hot climate. Never use any oil that says "Energy Conserving" on the label it will shorten the life of your wet clutch and transmission gears. Synthetic oil will run cooler and shift easier when hot.
