I'm looking to do an overhaul on my 2017 VStar 250 and I'm finding a lot of after market parts for the Virago 250 but not as many for the VStar 250. The bikes look incredibly similar in regards to their engine size, frame, and other things. I'm curious if the parts for the Virago would be interchangeable with the VStar (SPECIFICALLY THE EXHAUST PIPES). My Goal is to overhaul it to resemble in some ways what this virago looks like in the picture posted.
Thanks

One option would be to go to numerous parts houses' OEM lists and see if the parts share the same OEM numbers.

Very doubtful too no way.
The Japanese motorcycle makers are very careful to not make parts that are interchangeable between models and / or years of production.
After studying the exhaust system and mounting brackets, if it looks like the swap might work, give it a try. The odds are against you though....
