On the riders left side of engine...near the front...find the fill cap for adding oil....now look directly below and you will find a round window on the side of the crankcase down low. Usually Yamaha has two marks on the crankcase beside the window for Min and Max oil level.
Usually half way between works best.

1999 V Star 1100, clutch slips a bit at high gear, low rpm. Likely clutch plates or another part in the clutch?


Very likely clutch plates I'm afraid.

Caution here: What oil are you using? If you have used standard Auto oil in the engine, it will have contaminated the plates and this is why they will be slipping. Bike engine oil is a different formulation because the clutch is submerged in oil. What you are describing is a classic result of topping your bike up with standard car engine oil.

If this is the case, you will certainly need to replace the clutch plates.
