Should the fuel tank get hot after a 1hr ride on a 35deg day on my 650 Vstar I could hear pressure venting from the cap
Cheers

Your fuel tank should not get overly hot, maybe warm from radiant heat emanating from the engine or ambient heat from the sun beating down on it. As for the pressure, it is normal especially in warm weather, the key is...do not over fill your tank, it need room for fuel expansion.

You don't need room for the fuel to expand. Regardless or the amount of fuel, it's the pressure that matters. All it means is the vent will release sooner.

How much does the Yamaha VSTAR 650 weigh with windshield and bags? Aprox.of course.

1 answer

ronald

I owned a v-star 650 custom and it weighted 515 lbs and with side bags, windshield, sissy bar and rear rack it weighted about 540 lbs. The 650 classic weights about 540 lbs and with the above mentioned additions would likely total about 565 lbs or around there. Hopefully this information is helpful. Remember to always ride safely.

I'm trying to see what front end parts are interchangeable on my 2004 Yamaha v-star 1100 custom. I need new front forks and I found some from an 2006 650. Will it work?

The XVS650 only has a single front disc, the 1100 had twin discs so 650 forks only have a caliper mounting on one side.

Is 41000kms too much on a Yamaha V-star 650 bobber for 4,600AUD?

No, I bought my 2003 XVS 650 at 43000 last year, now has 48500 klm on it.

Hi Issac
I am an American so I will try to answer your question. I had to do a little calculating. Forty -one thousand kilometers is equal to 25, 476 miles and 4,600 AUD is equal to 3,248 US dollars. You didn't mention the year of the bike or if you bought the bike from a dealer or private party. However, that doesn't sound to bad of a price. It's a great bike I put over 80,000 kilometers on mind.

I regret selling my 650 and should have keep it as a second bike. The Yamaha 650 can easily with proper maintenance run well over 160,000 kilometers or 1000,000 miles.
Enjoy the bike and remember to ride safe and wear protective gear.

I currently ride a Yamaha 950, and I am very happy with it. Yamaha makes a good bike at a reasonable cost.

All the v-star year carbs are pretty much the same, the only difference is the float bowls on 06 and later models.

I Am very confused among yamaha650 and Kawasaki Vulcan . Can U suggest me please?
Thanks

The Vulcan comes in the 650 S and 903 models. The 903 models are very similar to the Yamaha 950 models. Great all purpose touring cruisers created in the 2008-2009 era. The Vulcan 650 S is a new model I think created in 2015 very sporty cruiser. It's a little smaller but sportier then Yamaha 650 (1998). However, it is much more modern. I hear that the Vulcan 650 is a great bike.

I would take the carburetor apart and clean it with carburetor cleaner. If that doesn't work I would replace the carburetor.
