I just purchased a 2001 v star 650 classic and on the ride home when i hit 5th gear all hell broke loose. A loud whine like i have never heard came from the bike. a local shop tells me the transmission repair will cost $2000.00. I guess i will have $4000.00 invested in a $2000.00 bike !!!!!

While riding my motorcycle in 5th gear, the motorcycle makes a higher pitch sound. i took it the local dealership and i was informed that my 5th gear is beginning to disintegrate. i know that there have been reports in the past by other owners of the 2000 vstar 650. i am curious to know why, when there is such an obvious defect with a vehicle, there has been no investigation regarding this matter. the service advisor knew exactly what the problem was as soon as i told him it was 2000 year vstar. he took the motorcycle for a test ride and provided me with the same opinion. this repair is the owners responsibility at a cost of 1500 to 1700.  view
