Question about 2009 Yamaha V Star 950
BLEW ORIGINAL ODOMETER UP... BOUGHT USED ONE BUT HAS THE WRONG MILAGE (WAY TO MUCH)... WOULD LIKE TO RESET IT TO WHAT I HAVE ON BIKE... IS THIS POSSIBLE?
That would technically be illegal. They are made to not be tampered with. That is called clocking. Try to see what the dealership says. They might be able to make some kind of entry on your title to adjust for it. To keep the value of your bike. Don't really know to be honest.

If it's not digital, it's possible, but you have to carefully disassemble the entire speedometer assembly & odometer to do it. I did the same to my 1981 Suzuki GS850 replacement speedometer that had more miles on it than my bike did.

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.

You will most likely find that your Air Cleaner element is blocked & possibly may have sucked up some leaves reducing air flow.

The starter button is used in an open circuit design.
You must press the starter button to "Close" this circuit before the starter will engage. Taking the starter button out of the loop helps support the suspect short. Assuming you kept the starter button wires from touching. :) If not, it is most likely the starter button.
Trace the wires coming from the starter button.
There could be a short circuit. (Same as pushing the starter button). Check along the handle bars and anywhere rubbing could cause a break in the insulation. Try this at night with the lights off.
You may be able to SEE the spark and locate it quickly.
