    So I think my clutch has gone on my xvs400, when it's in gear it still rolls freely has anyone else had this problem?

    I have an interesting problem. My vstar was sitting for a while. I got a brand new battery and put in new fuses. Now the bike will crank but won't start and the gauges and lights won't turn off unless I disconnect the battery or the main fuse. If anyone could help I'd appreciate it

    I was asked today how my 2007 Suzuki M50 compares to a VStar 650, and having never ridden VStar I guess that's why I am asking for someone's opinion that has experience with a Yamaha. :-?

    It is good to be one here. I just picked up my first bike, a Yamaha Vstar 1100 Custom and love it.
