How can I make my V Star 650 faster?

How many miles will a vstar 650 last?

How do you clean a carburetor without removing it?
Spray liberally with carb cleaner – trying to direct the cleaner into the jets – and leave to soak for a few minutes. Use an air line (or a can of pressurised air, sold as an ‘air duster’) to blow through the jets. Repeat the previous step and this one until you can see no more gunge.
Is a 2003 Yamaha V Star 650 fuel injected?
The Yamaha V Star 650 is one of the lowest-maintenance motorcycles you can buy. The combination of a shaft drive, an air-cooled V-twin, and a low compression ratio of 9.0:1 mean that there’s little to do on the V-Star 650. ( No fuel injection, though!)
How do you adjust air fuel mixture screws?
Turn the screw clockwise until the engine starts to sound rough.
- Tightening the screw weakens the air and fuel mixture and decreases the amount of fuel flowing to the engine.
- Tightening the screw is also called making the fuel mixture leaner, which lowers the RPMs at which the engine idles.
