Question about 2006 Yamaha V Star 1100 Classic

Loss of power, stalling, backfiring

I was riding the other day when all of a sudden i heard a poppng sound comming from up front. i stopped at the light, when i began to take off it stalled. i figured i was low on fuel so i filled it up. still after that it was running rough all the way home. what i notice when i start it up is that the long ehaust pipe that comes from the front feels cool to the touch while the shorter one gets hot. the bike is a 2006 yamaha vstar 1100 with 700 miles, of course out of warranty. i tried riding it and there is no power it just lags and runs rough. thanks in advance.

    Hi i changed the plug , now it runs again. The only thing i notice is it still has a slight backfire or popping noise. Should i also change the other plug?

Sounds like you are not getting fire to that cylinder,check plug wire,plug,and the cap on the end of the plug wire.

If all is well with those,just let me know and we can go to the next possible cause.

I have a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee. It was running good but then all of a sudden it starts running rough. You can be driving down the road and all of a sudden it will die . It will run good for about 10-15...


It could be a dirty idle air control valve located on the throttle body but when you said it backfires after running a while and before stalling, this sounds like a clogged catalytic converter. When blocked they will cause the exhaust manifold to glow red igniting gasses on the exhaust stroke, backfiring. A clogged cat will result in a loss of power as if you are trying to pull a trailer full of rocks uphill.

94 chevy k5 blazer works fine cold problem is that when it worms up it stalls backfires into the exauhst and losses power and turns off


Most of the time if it was a fuel pump it wouldnt start at all.Sounds like a tps problem.If there is a check engine light on, it would probably be cheaper to pay someone to scan it, instead of guessing and buying
sensor after sensor.Some of them are quite expensive.
Hope i was of some help

2001 yamaha R6 will die out on me while riding


Hi there!

dont give up on it yet. the CDI costs much! This sounds like a wiring problem. I've had the same problem before but i checked and traced the wiring and found out that the positive lead wire is making contact with the chassis.. due to vibration and just, it must have eaten the insulator. Check on this part. Also, make sure that your carb jets and spark plugs are clean.

-hope this gives you an idea.
