    Hi! I stumbled across these forums a few days ago, and I can tell I'm gonna stay. I just bought a '05 Vstar 650 custom, it has alot on it already, Hyper charger, saddle bags, windsheild, and It has the stock pipes on it but the guy I bought it from he sent them to some guy in New York (I think) and had them gutted and tuned...they sound awesome, so awesome in fact after I showed my brother-in-law my new toy he's traded in his boat for a bike now! This is the 3rd motorcycle that I've owned and by far the best one. I live in Southeast Iowa, and the weather is a bit terrible right now, cant wait to get back on it.

    Welcome to the forum from Illinois. Nice looking bike and neat story about the customized pipes. Hope the weather clears for you and the only twisty's you see are the riding type. Enjoy and be safe.

    I'm curious as to how the 650 runs on the interstate hyways. How high are the RPM's and MPG rate??
    I have a chance to pickup a Vstar 650 ('06 w/ 4000 miles) for my wife. We plan on riding old Rt 66 with them across country.

    Hey AIF, good to see you on here. PM sent. Anyway, the 650 will run 70-75 mph all day long, and get about 50 mpg doing it. Don't worry about the rpm's cause they are high revving engines by design. To give you an idea, the rev limiter kicks in about 90 mph in fourth gear, and it's a five speed. Just put in your earplugs and go.

    Nice machine, the Hyper Charger certainly adds to the bike's look.
