I have a 2009 Vstar XVS65Y (650), including owner,and service manuals. How much services, and or rebuilds can be done on this bike without actually removing the entire engine from the frame? Huh Bike riding season is coming to and end here shortly, and this would be the perfect time to get things ready for the following season, plus to hinder some winter blues. Any insight would be much appreciated.

i'v seen high performance cams advertised, but it's a scam they have the same profile as the stock one's what a joke, and unsuspecting people are buying em.
at this point cams are on the bavk burner

Im sure this has NEVER been done, then Ill adjust those valves. Hell, Ive got all winter. Definitely going to upgrade, and customize that airbox though. Gona pull the tank, and get started this weekend probably. Ive got an old laptop I can carry to the shed, and stare at the PDF service manual till it sinks in. Wana do things right. When its said and done, Ill be looking at an extra 10 horse maybe?
