SOURCE: can't find oil filter on 2005 650 XVS Dragstar Classic?

on right crankcase by brake pedal you will find a round cover with 3 bolts in it, remove this and you will find some more bolts to remove the second casing that holds the oil filter, be careful not to over tighten the bolts when putting back, i did and stripped the thread, complete change takes about 15 mins

SOURCE: 02 Yamaha xvs 650 dragstar classic that misfires when it warms up

First I would change all the spark plugs, and if that didn't make a difference then it sounds like the coil(s) are warming up and breaking down........when it starts to skip take a good pair of pliers with good rubber on them and pull each spark plug wire, when you get to the one that the running doesn't change then I would replace that particular coil

SOURCE: Hi can i fit any yamaha master cylinder onto my

The star line r all about the same up to the big boars I'm almost certain the vstar uses the same basic equipment since the dragstar is a limtd factory custom vstar anyway. If not the lines and weight to stoping power will b the same even if u need to do some fab work it's easier than u think and as soon as u start fabricating your own mounts or fixes to whatever it is you'll b hooked for life till you do like I I'd and turn a vstar650 into a 103 HP ridged frame twin meccunie carbs sticking out each side of the tank board to 100 cc beast hav fun and do your oun thing buying off the shelf of made to fit ain't custom know matter how much it cost you'd b surprised how easy it was to fit harley bars rims fenders and controls on a lot of *** bikes but the air cooled yamahahs r the best looking with out the **** radiator ruining the cleen lines that you create for your own bike

Assuming there is "play" in the clutch lever when it's "out", slippage in the upper gears is a sign of a worn out clutch.

You need to remove & rebuild the steering box

I would have done that first

Then work my way to other
parts away from it

You adjust it after you rebuild it

I can select first gear and ride away no problem, when I select any other gear there is no drive to the rear wheel at all, there is some slight odd noise coming from the clutch side but it seems to be...

Those are the normal symptoms of a worn clutch. It will pull quite well in lower gears but slips in the higher gears. I doubt if releasing the clutch adjustment is going to give you a bit of grace, you will soon have to replace the clutch, especially considering the noise.

worn gearbox or engine mounts allowing the gearbox to move and unlatch the shift linkage from its position, or the shift linkage is mal-adjusted and not properly engaged in 5th gear at all.

There may be a knuckle joint that can be adjusted to give correct shifter operation, it may be out of adjustment. GM cars are prone to this after reversing uphill in a manual car, your Nissan may be similar. The engine moves away from the area of the shift lever and pulls the knuckle joint out further than it is supposed to be and causes the gears not to enage securely any more.

I have a shimano tourney deraileur with sis index. what does the small adjustable screw which is off by itself adjust. the other two screws are for the upper and lower gear stops.

Is it a long screw running into the derailleur hanger? This sets the distance from the cassette to the jockey wheel. You use it to pull the jockey wheel away from the large cassette cog if the chain is having trouble clearing it. You'll know if it is happening because the bike will be making more noise in the low gear and it will sometimes want to skip out of gear.

Noise in trans or in primary chain

It sounds like the primary drive chain is loose. The way I adjust mine is to take off the upper left inspection cover, start the bike and slowly tighten the adjuster until it starts to wine, then back off until it stops. Rev it slowly and listen for a wine. No wine good to go.

Linkage for transmission

Why don't you start by getting the correct linkage. Maybe the tranny you replace is not exactly the same one. No difficult to replace, some of them have adjustments so maybe you might be able to get away with it, by adjusting it properly. Ensure the tranny is in the park position when adjusting, if properly adjusted, all the other gear shift should fall in place.
