Question about 2000 Yamaha V Star 1100 Custom
Posted by Anonymous on
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.

It's not adjustable. If you need more damping you can change the fork oil to a heavier weight. Put 15w instead of 10w for example. You could also put stiffer springs inside your forks. Rather large job. You could also put a spacer either on top or under the springs you have to get the effect of stiffer springs without actually changing it. Also a large job, but less expensive than new springs. Finally, check your fork seals. If the seals are bad you should see oil leaking from them and that would cause loss of damping.

On most bikes and four wheelers, this is done by a throttle stop. the position of the stop is usually adjusted by a screw. Remove the tank. turn throttle and see what moves by the carb/ injectors. When you return throttle to idle, the moving piece will come to rest on the throttle stop. You can now adjust its position by turning that screw.
