Question about 2003 Yamaha V Star 1100 Classic
Which motor oil I have to use for Yamaha V star 2003 @
i think the oil filter is at the front behind a round finned cover, if you find the drain plug it should be right above it, it shoud tell you how much oil it takes right next to the filler

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.

OK the consensus on air cooled is 20w50, if you don't get stuck in traffic when it's above 80 degrees outside 10w40 gives you better protection when it's cold.

Some Yamahas only give measurements from the top of the tube down to the oil. There are instructions in the service manual.
