SOURCE: I have a 2006 Yamaha Roadstar midnightstar 1700..

Sounds like it may be over jetted, and running alittle rich. Can you see black smoke if you rev it up? Could be misadjusted floats after the kit was installed.

SOURCE: 2007 650 yamaha vstar popping through the rear cylinder exhaust

First off did you buy it new? Second has it gone through its break in tune up yet?Did you do the re jeting? My guess is it was re jeted wrong & neeeds to be re jeted again or could also need more air(upgraded air kit) or a tfi or power comand fuel mod.My bike also poped untill I did the air & fuel upgrades & them upgrades will also give you a much needed house power needed for this rig.


Bring it to a shop & have it looked at.......


Good luck

SOURCE: have installed hypercharger on 06 roadstar. lost

Take the hypercharger back off. The carb uses fuel according to how much air sucks through. You are putting alot more air through the carb, so it sucks more fuel into the engine. Even if your not burning all the fuel, it's running through anyway. That's the downfall to a carb.

Just done oil change on my roadstar xv1600a oil is now spurting out of oil filler


Hi, Ray many riders are over filling their oil system because they do not know how to properly read their oil site glass or dipstick. The following procedure works on nearly all 4 stroke engines but to be on the safe side you should refer to your owners manual. Use your center stand if you have one.
1. Bring the engine up to operating temperature or let idle for 5 minutes.
2. Turn off your engine and let it sit for 2 minutes, this will allow the oil from the top end to drain to the bottom.
3. Hold your bike straight up or on the center stand and wait 2 minutes for the oil in the bottom of the engine to be level in the sight glass or on the dipstick.
4. Your oil level should be between the top full mark and the bottom add mark.
5. Never over fill your oil system it will cause problems:
a. oil leaking out of exhaust pipes.
b. oil leaking out of breather pipe/hose.
c. oil carryover into the air cleaner.
6. Your oil site glass must "NEVER" be completely full or empty drain or add oil as necessary.
7. Your oil dipstick must "NEVER" be over the full mark and should never be below the add mark drain or add oil as needed.

What is the best aftermarket exhaust for the 2007 Roadstar 1700 how and what to do to get the most out of this bike. What is the best air kit to use


best place to ask is a bike modification shop that installs exhausts , runs the bike on a dyno to check performance and has practical experience on your inquiry
ask around bike shops or read bike magazines to find such shops

I just purchased used Hard Chrome pipes for my 2005 Roadstar, how do I rejett the carb? Can I do this myself or should I take it in?


If you are looking for more power then take it in and have it done properly but changing just the exhaust won't change the fuel mix into the engine it will only quicken the flow of gasses from the exhaust and expell them quicker out of the pipe.

2006 Yamaha Roadstar Silverado, Installed Roadburner Street Pro exhaust system and Dyno-jet stage one kit,now the rear cylinder keeps fouling out! Any suggestions??


Sounds like jetting is to rich, recheck settings and fuel height settings, need to get the fuel mixture correct as that bike will develop other running issues due to carbon build up in the rear cylinder. check out www.roadstarclinic.com as this is a good source for information on this bike

Backfire after shutoff


With the key off and the engine "running down", the idle circuit fuel is still going to into each cylinder then out the exhaust. A hot spot in the exhaust can ignite the unburned fuel creating an explosion, ( backfire ). Let the engine run down to an idle THEN turn the key off.

Please rate this answer. Thanks!
