SOURCE: Yamaha 1100 Drag Star 2001 Custom motor starter,

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!

I have a 2000 yamaha 1100 v star and having trouble removing the cylinders. I have the head off but the cylinder is not wanting to move. is there a trick to it


Hi, Joseph the cylinder sleeve extends a 1 or 2 inches below the base gasket surface along with a hollow dowel pin on the left side in between the cylinder and crankcase that maybe hindering removal I use a mallet or a no bounce plastic coated hammer to moderately tap a few times the top fins of the cylinder" in the front" to aid in breaking loose 17 years of surface adhesion from the base gaskets for this scenario you will need your service/owners manual if you can't find the first and best tool you ever bought for your Yamaha, despair not, for a mere zero $ you can download another one.

Do you have to drop the exhaust to change the oil filter on a 2000 yamaha 1100 v-star


Yes, unless you want to spend $250 on a Baron oil filter relocation kit. http://www.motoshop.net/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=BA264000&Category_Code=BARONS&Store_Code=AIM Or $275 on a Jardine oil filter relocation kit. http://www.cruisercustomizing.com/detail.cfm?Category_ID=108&manufacturer_ID=7&product_ID=6715&sblid_name=Jardine_Chrome_Oil_Filter_Relocation_Kit___ V_Star_______ If you choose to stay with the stock set up, consider keeping new exhaust gaskets handy in case you start to experience popping and backfiring caused by leaking exhaust gaskets on the head pipes.

Backfires badly when downshifting or just letting off the throttle v-star 1100


Most people have this problem after changing the exhaust system. In your case you have to unbolt the exhaust system just to change the oil filter during an oil change. There is an oil filter relocation kit available for around $400 that allows you to both use a spin on filter and not have to unbolt the exhaust system every time you change the oil. The cause of your problem is air leaking past the exhaust o-rings in the head. Buy new exhaust o-ring gaskets for the head and your problem should be solved. If there is a sealing pipe gasket going from the head pipe to the muffler you may have to replace that too. The cause of your problem was probably an oil change where the mechanic replaced the oil filter but did not bother to replace the exhaust o-ring gaskets. Happy riding.

Need procedure for changing oil filter element


Unbolt the exhaust from the cylinder head to access the oil filter. For around $400 you can buy a kit that moves the filter to a better location. You may need to replace your exhaust gaskets if you experience popping in the exhaust after the filter change.

Backfires on deceleration and also is getting black above shift side carb.


A lot of backfiring on deceleration is related to reused or leaking exhaust gaskets in the head . The gaskets are leaking air into the exhaust. If you are experiencing carbon on the intake side , I would recommend replacing the intake o-rings and gaskets, spark plugs, and spark plug caps. These can all be related to backfiring through the carburetors.

Oil leak from small round cover held in place by 2 socket head cap screws on yamaha V -twin 1100 front cylinder


sounds like a tappet cover, it will have a "o" ring seal.

This is a very simple repair, purchase a new seal from yamaha, remove the two screws and replace seal, make sure everything is clean when you reassemble. you dont need to overtighten the screws to much

Hi I have an oil leak @ the front of the engine. It looks like it coming from that chrome cover on the front of the motor is this the breather It is a 2001 v star 1100 classic Thanks


is it The cover behind the front tire with the 2 allen screws holding it on ?, this is the cover for the lifter adjustment. i believe its chrome. Remove the cover and you'll see the valve spring and rocker arm. This is where you make the valve adjustment. The cover has a rubber type gasket around it. You can purchase them from your Yamaha dealer. Replace the rubber gasket and your problem is over. Once you remove the cover you will see. Good Luck!
