Motor bogs off idle


Sure sounds like a fuel problem to me. Sounds like one of the jets in your carb are clogged up again. I would take them apart again. Carbs are touchy.

After cleaning carbs on my v star 1100 fuel started leaking out the bottom out of a tube any idea what it is


One of the carbs has a stuck float or needle is stuck. some times you can rap the carbs on the bottom with a hammer handle to free up the stuck float. Try raping each carb on its bowl to unstick it. The fuel line is a over flow from the carbs for just this cause. Or you did not get a clamp on just right.

2003 V Star 650. Had fule pumping out of air cleaner box


you shouldnt have to resync the carbs as long as you dont touch the mixture screws or the screws for the throttle blades. you wont have to pull the jets completly out to clean them just spray the heck out of all the orifaces with carb cleaner once you have them pulled apart. Also whe you put it back together make shure the carb seal to the engine and airbox are tight with no leaks, this will make it run bad also

My 2003 1100 v star sat for 3 months without starting. I started it and only ran on one cylinder. I removed carbs and cleaned. Now it idles fine but doesn`t want to accellerate. We cleand all jets and...


sync 'ing the carbs you need either a manometer or two vacuum GAUGES. pREFERABLY A MANONMETER..iT'S A MATTER OF BALANCING THE CARBS TO HAVE THE SAME VACUUM AT THE SAME POINT OF THROTTLE OPENING.. WHAT IS YOUR LOCATION?

Yamaha V-Star 1100 backfires and will not run without choke on


Here are two solutions for you:
A - Take the carberator off and soak it in some good quality carb cleaner for about 1/2 an hour.  That should take care of any residue in the carbs.
B - Alternatively (and for the less technical minded) there is a great product called Sea Foam.  Try to find it at your local CSK auto/NAPA/Wal-Mart.  Pour a small amount (maybe 1/4 ounce) into each cylinder chamber (take out the spark plugs), try to pour a small amount into the carbs (a turkey baster works great for this), and pour the rest into the gas tank.  Let it sit for 5-10 minutes, then start it up.  *NOTE - the bike will start VERY hard at first until it burns through what's in the cylinders.  ALSO the fumes will be EXTREMELY strong and suffocating - make sure you do this OUTDOORS preferably, or at least in a VERY well ventilated area.
Good luck - I know how frustrating these things can be! :)
P.S. - I am a proud owner of a V-Star 1300 - great bikes! :)

My v-star 1100 has not been run in over a year. fuel leaks when trying to start. Whats wrong?


This sounds to me like a carb float being stuck open. Turn off the gas and drain the offending carb(s). Next, turn the gas back on and sharply tap the float bowl with the plastic handle of a screwdriver as the fuel bowl refills. The goal here is to vibrate the float to free it up. If doing this process a couple of times does not free the float I would remove the carb(s) and clean with a spray carb cleaner. Clean the air filter then re-mount carb(s). Next, Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, ( not all bikes have a water trap bowl ). Install an inline fuel filter.
