Yamaha V Star after market compatibility

Discussion in 'Cruisers' started by willyb, Mar 19, 2013.

  1. Hi all. I'm looking to purchase some pipes for my 2013 V Star 650 Custom. The problem I'm finding is that many of the manufacturers don't list the newer models as being compatible with their pipes. Case in point Vance & Hines stop at 2008 or so.

    My question is, can anyone fill me in on whether there are exhaust differences between the later model V Star and ones from the earlier years?

    I tried Yamaha myself but they couldn't give a definite answer themselves!


  2. It's fine
    I thought the same thing when I got pipes for my 2010 XVS650, but I got the V&H and had no worries
  3. Thanks Jay, will purchase with impunity!
  4. Try Zpower......
