SOURCE: i have a yamaha dragstar

If it has been sitting for a while I strongly recommend you remove the carburetors and clean them thoroughly, you will need to make sure you remove all the jets, especially the pilot jets because that is the smallest jet in the carb that will plug and it is often the one that will prevent the engine from starting.
Try using some WD40 in the back of the carbs when you try to start it after you clean the carbs. I don't like to recommend starting fluid because it is volatile and can easily catch on fire if the engine backfires.
I'd also recommend replacing the spark plugs as well. Make sure you have good fire. (turn the motor over with the plugs out and grounded on the head to make sure you can see the spark)
I also recommend pouring a small amount of Marvel Mystry oil down each spark plug hole to help "reseal" the rings. Remember that sitting is not your friend and you may have to get the rings back to life by using the special oil.
Just remember you need three basic elements to make an engine run:

  1. Air
  2. Fuel
  3. Spark
If you have all three of those and compression your engine will start.
Let me know if you have any further questions.
Regards,
RSelvy

SOURCE: have problems starting yamaha xvs 1100 dragstar

Hi there fellow XVS dragstar owner!

I had the same problem before. It is usually caused by the wrong jets installed. have it Replaced with the standard jets that came with it... this will solve the problem on acceleration. Make sure the fuel and air mixture knob is set to 2.5 turns-out from full close. clean the spark plugs.. better, replace it with a new one to ensure clean burning of fuel. also, use unleaded gas. this burns better.

hope this helps

SOURCE: xvs 650 dragstar timing chain adjustment

That engine uses automatic cam chain adjusters. There is no manual over-ride or adjustment. If the cam chain is loose, you need to replace the adjuster at the least and possibly the cam chain and guides.

SOURCE: 02 Yamaha xvs 650 dragstar classic that misfires when it warms up

First I would change all the spark plugs, and if that didn't make a difference then it sounds like the coil(s) are warming up and breaking down........when it starts to skip take a good pair of pliers with good rubber on them and pull each spark plug wire, when you get to the one that the running doesn't change then I would replace that particular coil

Any ideas why my speedo doesn't work ??


Hi, James baffling isn't it for such a simple mechanical apparatus lets break it down:
1. Speedo works validated by the drill.
2. Cable works validated by the fact it's new.
3. Speedometer drive is all that's left needs to be validated by disconnecting the speedometer cable from the speedometer, getting the front wheel off the ground and spinning it to see if the new cable is turning in the housing, my guess is the speedometer drive unit tab is either broken or not properly indexed.
Good luck and have a wonderful day.

Anyone gotta yamaha dragstar xvs 125 workshop manua?


Hi, Anonymous the vast majority of service, parts, and owners manuals on the internet are "FREE" to download and all service manuals contain wiring diagrams in the back pages. The rest usually charge a modest fee around $10 sometimes more and there is a handful of obscure, rare, obsolete, and very old models that are no longer or never were available, then there is eBay where you may be able to find what you need at a very high price because of its age and rarity. Most of the "FREE" manuals will cover your exact make, model, and year otherwise one will be provided that comes as close as possible to your bike and will have most of the same info that an exact manual would have. To download your manual please click on the blue links below. Good luck and have a wonderful day.

Ring gear spins freely in both directions when starter is remove


Very unlikely that ring gear has separated from clutch. If this model has clutch dogs on ring gear ( ring gear not permanently fixed to housing) then one or all of the tension springs have weakened and don't allow ring gear to lock in one direction.
