Question about 2002 Yamaha V Star 1100 Classic

1 Answer

I have a 2006 v star 1100 with aftermarket pipes and a jet kit installed. It sat for months and I rebuilt the carbs. Now the bike will only idle with the choke on, are my carbs out of sink?

Hi, Lancer and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel cap or fuel tank is not venting properly.
2. Fuel filter clogged.
3. Fuel line pinched or kinked.
4. Float needle and seat sticking.
5. Float level too low.
6. Carburetor bowl vent line clogged/blocked/pinched.
7. Idle adjusting screw set too low.
8. Air/fuel mixture screw set too lean.
9. Idle port, transfer ports, slow air jet clogged.
10. Slow fuel jet clogged.
11. Faulty fuel pump.

SOURCE: 2003 WR250 F - eng. won't idle down and carb starts to overflow

Hi Jwelden,
Have you checked the float level in the float chamber?
I guess you may have to reset the float pin adjustment, its allowing more gas to pass through thn required and thus the overflow!
Not bad too, when you are working on the float assembly take the opportunity to blow out the fuel line from petcock to the carburator via the seat for the float pin,any foreign particals there would stop the float pin to seal up and thus overflow.
Fit in an inline fuel filter , this will help keep out the dirt or whatever.
Hope this helps.

This is a very common problem fpr bike that sit over then winter and/or rainy seasons. From sitting too long, the old fuel in your carb bowls have plugged up (varnished) your pilot jets and probably you idle fuel mixture screws too. Luckily your carb bowls and jets can be access without having to remove the carbs. For about $4 each, sometimes it's easier to just replace the pilot jets. If any of this is foreign to you, have a shop do it. And don't let them get away with quoting your the same charge to do the work as a V-Star 1100. The procedures are completely defferent and alot more extensive on the 1100.

what you need to is pull a plug and see what it looks like this will tell what you need to do to your jetting. yes this could be a lean backfire it could also be fat. if your plugs are looking white your lean if they are back you fat. you need to get the bike fat before you lean it out. the first set in jetting is to get your bike to pull hard under full accl. once you have that then you can work out your idle. don't forget about your air/fuel screw. the air/fuel IS a part of everything from idle to full wide open. do you have pipes and a air filter? the best people to call is factory pro. they make jet kits and i have learned a lot from those kats.they know there poop and can get you set up right. remember to set your rear cyl just a little fatter then the front it will help with cooling.

I too had this popping back fire on my 2004 Yamaha 1100 custom.
Seems the AIS system is causing this.

This site has an excellent PDF file and instructions.
http://www.sloneservices.com/SilverBack/Other-Stuff/AIS%20Removal.pdf
There is also a simple way to block of the AIS without stripping it off the bike. Reversible too!
(Usually my first choice to see if the desired results are achieved.)

Good luck!
Loved my BUB pipes too!

The excess fuel is caused by the float levels being out of adjustment. Fix the floats and the dead spot may disappear. If not, pull the slides and then move the jet needle clip down one notch. With due respect, I would put the bike carbs back to stock. :)

HI if this is a bike with carbs then I would highly suggest rejetting them with the after market pipes, if it has injectors then I would recomend checking to see if a power commander is availible for the bike so that you can tune the fuel curve, it will help with the performance as well as your fuel problem
