Yes, it is true. I owned a VStar 1100 Classic. The oil filter is on the right side of the engine - it's an internal one, not a spin-on - and is beneath a chrome cover that is held on by 5 bolts (of 4 different sizes ! ). The front header pipe obscures access to 2 of the bolts so it must be removed. In order to do that you must remove both mufflers, the rear brake lever and the right floorboard. Some owners claim they can access the bolts by merely loosening the header without removing it, but I never could. There are also aftermarket kits available by Jardine and others that convert the oil filter to a spin-on type which mounts to a bracket on the front of the engine.
