Question about 2003 Yamaha V Star Classic
The area where the air filter attaches on that bike is most likely directly on the carb, that will need to be removed and partially disassembled to gain access to the areas where your new jets belong.

Here are two solutions for you:
A - Take the carberator off and soak it in some good quality carb cleaner for about 1/2 an hour. That should take care of any residue in the carbs.
B - Alternatively (and for the less technical minded) there is a great product called Sea Foam. Try to find it at your local CSK auto/NAPA/Wal-Mart. Pour a small amount (maybe 1/4 ounce) into each cylinder chamber (take out the spark plugs), try to pour a small amount into the carbs (a turkey baster works great for this), and pour the rest into the gas tank. Let it sit for 5-10 minutes, then start it up. *NOTE - the bike will start VERY hard at first until it burns through what's in the cylinders. ALSO the fumes will be EXTREMELY strong and suffocating - make sure you do this OUTDOORS preferably, or at least in a VERY well ventilated area.
Good luck - I know how frustrating these things can be! :)
P.S. - I am a proud owner of a V-Star 1300 - great bikes! :)

These parts are fairly reliable. Rather than buying new, you should be able to pick one up from a motorcycle breaker who will post it to you. I would expect to pay about £60-£100 tops in the UK (Depending on mileage). ANy Yamaha dealer will be happy to order you one new, but they are a hell of a price!

Charge battery to full, start in neutral, still clicks? Bad ground, or bad connection. Jump starter solenoid with screwdriver,etc. if motor turns over the relay is bad. Chaz Moto DC
