The 650 is a great all around bike. I was concerned with the valve adjustments, but have decided not to worry with it. Maybe at about 10,000 miles I'll adjust them, but the bike seems to run great so I figure they have to be close. Some people say at 70 mph the bike shakes; not mine, it is very smooth.

I just bought this bike last night... and it's slow. It really needs an overdrive gear!!!

Looking to buy a 2003 V-Star 650 this week. I'm basically gonna use it for a daily commute (20 miles one way). When you said slow, did you mean slow like on the highway, or even on the regular streets?
Appreciate any feedback.
P.S. This would be my first ride >150cc :)

Pastor Angel, thank you for informing me and others about the V-Star. I am on the verge of purchasing my first bike and I am in LOVE with the look of this bike. And I am hoping to passing this bike on to my wife as well. God bless you and thank you. L. Colon Passaic New Jersey.

I just got my 2000 650 V-star. I have never been as pleased as I am with this bike. I really fit it well too. I think I'm gonna move up to the 1100 or the 1300 in a few months, or maybe a year at most, and put the wife on this one. I think this bike handles well and I have made the pipes a little louder. I have gotten many thumbs up on it. It has lots of extra chrome and I am not ashamed to ride with any custom bike out there. I just wanted say to those who are thinking of getting a nice looking and comfortable bike, try the STAR. You will be more than pleased.
God Bless you All,
