The Yamaha V Star 650 is a great bike for beginners. It has a low seat height, so it’s easy to get on and off the bike. It also has many features that make it ideal for new riders such as an electric starter and fuel injection. However, one thing that some people don’t like about this motorcycle is the top speed–it’s not very fast at all! This guide will show you how to increase the top speed of your V star by following these steps:
Step One: Install a High-Flow Air Cleaner. This will help your bike breathe better and make it easier to start, so you won’t have to rely on the electric starter as much.
Step Two: Replace Your Exhaust System with an Aftermarket Headers or Slip Ons. These are going to give you more horsepower at higher rpms which is what helps increase top speed in most motorcycles (and cars!). It also makes the motorcycle sound cooler!
The Yamaha V Star 650 comes standard with two exhaust pipes exiting out of its engine but for some reason there’s only one pipe per side–this can be corrected by installing either aftermarket headers or slip-ons that come in pairs on each side instead.
Step Three: Swap Your Front Wheel with a Larger One. This is only for the Yamaha V Star 650’s that come equipped with wire-spoke wheels, not aluminum cast ones–which we recommend you switch to if you haven’t already. These are less expensive and should be compatible on front or rear wheel drive models. Not only do they look cooler but they also make your bike lighter which helps increase top speed!
The stock rim size for the Yamaha V star 650 is 18 inches in diameter so aftermarket options include 19×18, 20×19, 21×20 and 22″ rims, all of which fit our application because it has an adjustable fork height (either way up). Some people might wonder why not go for a 19″ or 20″ wheel which would give better looks and handling. The answer is that, while these options are available to those who want them–like the 14mm offset VEE-style front hub with 19 inch rim (available from Wheel Master), they require more effort in terms of suspension settings because of their smaller diameter.
Step Four: Get Lighter Weight Tires. One way you can improve your motorcycle’s top speed is by purchasing light weight tires like our Pirelli Angel GTs! These new offerings use an advanced rubber compound called Black Chilli Rubber which not only gives it unmatched performance but also reduces vibration at high speeds making for less fatigue on long rides!
The Yamaha V star 650 has a low suspension so it will feel less stable at high speeds, but if you want to increase the top speed of your motorcycle there are some options.
Step Five: Upgrade The Air Filter. One way that you can improve a Honda Shadow’s 2016 power is by upgrading its air filter! This would not have much effect on a Yamaha V star 650 because they already get great power from their engine and don’t need any more help than what comes with stock form.
One thing I recommend doing before increasing the top speed of your bike is first changing out the air cleaner for something like our awesome K&N Universal Cleanable Air Filter which uses oil-free technology to capture 99% or all particles down to 15 microns while still allowing the bike to breath freely.
Step Six: Change The Oil and Filter. When it comes time for you to change the oil on your motorcycle there are two basic options, synthetic or regular mineral-based oil! If you want a top speed of around 120 mph then I recommend going with synthetics because they flow better which means that when you need more power from the engine those fluids will get where they’re needed faster than if you were using conventional oils. As far as what type of filter goes in this situation – it’s really up to personal preference but we have some awesome ones here at BikeBandit like our K&N High Performance Replacement Air Filters
A few words about top speeds before finishing up… One thing yamaha v star 650 top speed that I think is really important to keep in mind when it comes time for you to make a decision about your yamaha v star 650 top speed is how much power do you want from the engine. For instance, if you’re just looking for an average bike that can get up and go then 110 mph may be a good option but if all of your friends are getting bikes with 140+ speeds then maybe something like this Honda CBR 500 Motorcycle would better suit what you need because it will give you close to 150 mph which means more bragging rights!
