SOURCE: I was made aware that the yamaha 650 Silverado,

The only problem in getting the carbs in sync is a poor service department. Contact the area manager for Yamaha and request he arrange to have a competent shop sync the carbs. The main additive causing problems is the ethanol alcohol. It tends to corrode valves, carb fittings and jets. Be pro-active and put an octane booster in the tank when filling it. This will greatly lessen the problems you are having. Legal action is useless simply because the problem is due to the USA requirements for fuel. That is the mitigating factor which Yamaha has no control over and as such, relieves Yamaha from liability. You said, " Not one time did the salesperson actually point out the true nature of the Yamaha warranty '. As a responsible consumer the same must be said of yourself. " Not one time did I actually ask the true nature of the Yamaha warranty. " Yes, I know that what I have said is hard to hear, but as a consumer, the responsibility falls on you. " Cleaveat Emptor " is Latin for " Let the buyer beware ". Get the bike running then sell it or trade it for a bike that, after researching the other brands, better fits your needs. Don't let this problem consume your life. Chalk it up to experience, let it go, and move on with your life. Blessings and best wishes.

Testimonial: "You are very right. Let the buyer beware!!! As it stands now, The bike has been sitting at the dealer. I have received calls telling me they almost have it fixed, But then they need more time. Yamaha has agreed to pay for the repairs. They to realize the potential of sales should this get out into the news. It's been 8 days since I left the bike. I'll give them alittle longer and then take the next step which I've already looked into. I may not no much about the mechanical aspect of motorcycles, But after spending sixteen years in law enforcement, There are always legal avenues which can, and do if pushed, Will protect people. Thanks again for your insight. "

How many quarts oil should yamaha vstar hold


Check this site out:
http://forums.delphiforums.com/n/main.asp?webtag=yamaha1100&nav=start&prettyurl=%2Fyamaha1100%2Fstart&gid=2010825370

Stock oil filter installed: 3.17 quarts if no filter change - 3.3 quarts if filter changed

DO NOT OVERFILL! FYi - there's a site glass on the left side of the bike, under the left riders peg. Make sure the bike is level, oil is warm and bike is off - do not let the oil get over the upper mark... just under the upper mark is good, a little closer to middle is better.

Backfire thru carb and exaust.. points and timing problem


Okay, I will tackle a tune up on a 36 year old Yamaha. Warning: I am 59 and haven't touched that bike since I was 23 and a mechanic at Lynns Yamaha in D.M. Iowa. Your bike has CV carbs and I know very little on the carbs.

First let me suggest you get a service manual. Go to www.repairmanuals.com and input " 1973 Yamaha 650 ". You can choose a Clymer or a Haynes manual. I don't care for Clymer and have never used a Haynes. The Haynes is $23.77 which is really a pretty good price considering not many of the manuals still exist.
Also, for future reference, go to the following site where you can see a parts diagram for your specific bike. You will select the brand, year, model, etc., once you go to the site. Part numbers and prices are also shown. Parts can be ordered if the price is shown > no price = the part is not available.
http://www.babbittsonline.com/pages/parts/viewbybrand/1/Yamaha.aspx

Also Google " motorcycle salvage yamaha " and Google " vintage yamaha motorcycle parts ".

Start with new NGK B8ES spark plugs. New points can be gotten at the Babbitts site. Set the points at .015 max opening. Hook a timing light up to the left cylinder. Remove the left case cover to expose the flywheel. Start the bike and point the light at the static reference mark on the casing. IF I RECALL CORRECTLY, rotate the base plate that the points are mounted on to adjust the timing. The timing should advance when the engine is reved up. If it doesn't, the spark advancer needs service. Now put the light on the right cylinder. IF I RECALL CORRECTLY, changing the right cylinder point gap is the only way to set the timing for that cylinder.

I hope this helps. Please rate my extra long answer. Thanks.
