Hello everyone. I am trying to change the oil on my 06 V Star 1100 and I do not know where the drain plug is. Any of you know where its located at? I do not have a service manaul but it has 2000 miles on it so it should be changed right? Thanks for the help.

Anybody .......

I have an '03 V-Star. I'm sure you have the oil changed by now, but after the first change, it isn't that big of a deal. I can do it in about 30 minutes now. Did you find all the information you needed to change the oil?

It should be located on the very bottom of the block. Hope that helps, if not, let me know.
Is it sideways in the bottom? I have only seen them up and down could be just never seen it like that before.
Hope that'll help.

few days ago, I changed the oil / oil filter / antifreeze on my 98 Honda Magna 750c.
I used Rotella T 5w/40 oil and straight antifreeze (not pre-mixed 50/50) with a small bottle of water wetter super collant. I noticed a big improvment on its performances.

After reading the instructions on how to change oil in a V-Star, I will never, EVER, buy one! You gotta take half the bike apart, yikes! Very un-Yamaha like to me. Changing oil and filter in my old Seca 650 took 10 minutes.
I found another link - microfiche.. I use fiche to help me find where the part is.
Thanks for your help Patricia. Now I just need to figure out how to balance the bike and alittle bit of time.
You can go 3000 miles between oil changes but you should check it more often to top it off if needed. I know a guy who has a 2006 V-star 650. He has to take the right-side cover off the engine to change his oil. That's ridiculous? That's what I said!
Yeah found out you need to take some parts off to change the oil so I am holding out until I can afford the Oil relocation kit they have. Makes changing the oil SO much easier.
I have a V*. Here is a helpful link for our bike. Newbie here, just helping a brother.

I added an magnetic tip oil drain plug. I got mine at Advanced
