Hi, Brian you may have a stuck choke and the usual suspects are:
1. Throttle cables improperly adjusted, pinched or need lubrication.
2. Idle adjusting screw needs to be backed off.
4. Air fuel mixture adjusted too lean start with 2 full turns.
5. Intake system air leak.
6. Fast idle choke ramp is not releasing.
7. Broken throttle return spring.
8. Damaged diaphragm or slide.
9. Faulty MAP, TPS, ATS, O2, sensors or wiring/connector
10. Multi carburetors not in sync.

The black smoke means it is running a rich fuel mixture. first try a new air filter element, and oil change(incase fuel has flooded the sump).

2007 Yamaha V Star blowing black smoke


Hi, Quentin your instrument gauges and lights can alert you to most electrical and engine issues they can not warn you about failed engine gaskets or seals so your engine has to resort to old fashion alert methods of colored "SMOKE SIGNALS" here is a breakdown of their meaning:
1. COLORLESS OR SLIGHTLY BLUE SMOKE on start-up means your air/fuel mixture is at the right composition and everything is well burnt in your combustion chamber.
2. BLUE SMOKE on start-up is usually caused by failed valve seals dripping oil into the combustion chamber when the engine is not running.
3. YELLOW OR BROWNISH SMOKE at start-up means your air/fuel mixture is too lean. Too lean means that there is low fuel but high air mixture in your combustion chamber.
4. WHITE SMOKE on start-up may be caused by a blown head gasket allowing coolant to enter the combustion chamber and may start dripping out of the exhaust pipes or mufflers. Smoke while riding is usually caused by worn out or damaged valves, seals, guides, pistons, rings, or cylinder walls.
5. BLACK SMOKE on start-up is usually caused by too much fuel in the combustion chamber this can be due to air/fuel mixture adjustment too rich, accelerator pump improperly adjusted, faulty choke/enrichner or not in the off position, air filter dirty and clogged, faulty carburetor float needle and seat, pilot jet too large, fuel injectors leaking, smoke while riding is usually caused by the main jet being too large or a damaged carburetor.
It should be noted that aggressive or abnormal throttle operation will cause these conditions to manifest themselves exponentially.

My 2001 yamaha 1600 roadstar backfires and cuts out just before I shift. It idle fines. it runs good between gears. It cuts out just when it get up in higher rpms, just before I shift.


Backfiring and cutting out liike this is probably a symptom of one or both of the following: too rich a fuel mixture, or too weak a spark. Take your spark plugs and see if they tips look tan or black. If black, your fuel mixture needs to be leaned out. Another possible cause is a dirty and or clooged air filter, which can reduce the air flow into the engine. Take it out, bang the dust and debris out. If it looks really dirty, replace it -- they're cheap. If your spark is too weak, you may also notice a loss of power, especially at higher revs. If none of these seem to be the culprit, have your ignition timing checked.

2009 v star 1300 won't idle runs rough


Hi, Snakeman_982 the carburetor throttle shaft wheel has two cables the cable closest to the right side of the bike is the throttle cable and the one closest to the left side is the idle cable. Right about the middle between the two is the idle adjustment bolt it faces out towards the air filter end of the carb . The engine should be at operating temperature with the enrichener off to set the idle between 950-1050 rpm. Turn the idle adjustment bolt clockwise to increases idle speed and counterclockwise to decrease idle speed. If you have access to your air fuel mixture bolt you may adjust it as well if not there is a video below on how to gain access, make sure you start with clean or new spark plugs. Gently turn the air fuel mixture bolt clockwise until it starts to bottom out "STOP" do not over tighten as it will damage the taper on the end, now back it out 2 full turns to establish a starting point start the engine and check the idle rpm's and adjust the idle adjustment bolt accordingly for 950-1050 rpm if necessary, adjust the air fuel mixture bolt 1/4 turn at a time and let the engine settle for about 10 seconds, clockwise for a leaner mixture and counterclockwise for a richer mixture you are seeking the highest rpm your air fuel mixture bolt can acquire without going past 3 full turns from bottom then readjusting the idle adjustment bolt back down to 950-1050 rpm If you can not detect any rpm change and can not stall the engine by turning the air-fuel mixture bolt all the way in then your pilot/low-speed jet is too big. Final adjustment should be made with a clean air filter mounted to the carburetor.

Black plugs/missing at high rpm's


You're either running too rich, or plugs that are too cold.
My first guess, from scanty info: you've changed the exhaust pipes, are running too lean on top (need a different main and maybe needle and cutaway, too) and "fixed" the mixture with as screw on the carb that just adjusts idle mixture.
Stock exhaust? Check the airbox/aircleaner for restriction. You may also have a torn/perforated CV diaphragm in your carb (unlikely in a bike this new)

Excessive carbon on spark plugs


Several things come to mind on this. First, rejetting should be done by someone that can do all of the fine tuning also. If the idle mixture screw on the carburetors are still covered, you need to expose them for adjusting. Pull one spark plug and look at the color of the electrode. Black is too rich (too much gas) and white is too lean. You want a lighter brown. Put the plug back in and start the bike. On each cylinder, adjust that idle mixture screw all the way in, being gentle, to the stop. DO NOT OVER TORQUE, YOU JUST WANT TO REACH BOTTOM. Make note of the screw driver orientation and back the screw out 2 turns. This is the starting point. If the bike will no longer idle, adjust the idle screw for about 1000 rpm's. After running the engine for a couple of minutes at idle, do not rev the engine, just shut it off. Pull a spark plug and check the color. Again, you are looking for a light brown. If it is black, turn that carbs mixture screw in 1/2 turn, white, turn out 1/2 turn. Do this for each carb. I know, this is not the quickest way, but it is a sure way of getting the right mixture. It will be time consuming and you might even burn your fingers on the hot plugs.
Now that you have the right mixture, it is time to balance the carbs. I use a Carbtune monometer. Google Carbtune. This is a must to get the bike to run strong and smooth. You will need a service manual for this procedure. Go to Delphi Forums and look up the RSV, Royal Star Venture forum and you will find an electronic version of the service manual there, for free. Hope this helps.
btw, there is not anything around the spark plugs to adjust.
