My y amaha v star 2001 shuts down when it's running

My bike shuts down when it's running around 60 miles per hour looking like fuel stops. I cleaned all the system but the problem happens less but happens. Thanks

    does it sputter before it dies (like its starving for gas) or completely die (like an electrical issue)? the latter will be like night & day. one minute its working and the next you have no power (and no lights on the dash).



    when this happens, can you restart the bike immediately?

Ga_drifter has a good suggestion here. If that does not work for you, check for crimps/kinks in the fuel line itself. More than likely behind clamps/ties where not visibly seen.

Try cleaning your fuel tank vents. sounds like it is clogged and causing the fuel to vapor lock.

Gd evening. my motorcle stall @ 60 miles per hour then doesnt drop below 50 miles per hour wen riding on interstate. change fuel filter,gas. blew it out on highway it picked up normal speed for about


Well, it seems you were looking at the wrong gauge...

Speed doesn't matter, but rpms MIGHT matter. Next time this happens pay attention to the bikes behavior relative to the tach. The next thing I would do is make sure the plugs are fresh. It's a cheap shot at the fish in the barrel, but if that doesn't take care of it chances are you have a carb problem and that will need to be taken apart, cleaned, checked, and set up properly. I only recommend changing the plugs first as a proper carb job can be daunting for a novice.

AT SLOW SPEED BIKE JERKS HAVE TO HOLD CLUTCH IN TO STOP THIS .??????????


It depends on the gear you are in and the speed you are going. If you are lugging the engine at low speed, the compensator sprocket cannot absorb the tremendous power pulses produced by the engine. Your bike is equipped with a manual transmission and a clutch, not an automatic transmission like a automobile. Now, if you cannot hold a steady speed of about forty miles per hour, your engine may be running lean. If it's fuel injected, you need to get a dealer or a shop that can change the fuel mapping to look at it. If it's a carburetor equipped bike, you need to go one step richer on the slow jet.

Good luck

I have a 05' Yamaha 650 V Star and it will only run if the choke is fully out, hot or cold engine. If the choke is pushed in, it immediately dies.


Has the bike been parked for two weeks or more? If so, the fuel has most likely gummed up and plugged fuel passages and jets. Might try adding 1/2 to full can of SeaFoam to existing fuel in the tank, crank the bike and run (with choke if you have to) at a high idle for several minutes. Shut it down and let set for an hour or so allowing the SeaFoam to work. Start bike again and run at high idle again, trying to run it without the choke. If this doesn't work, then the carb probablyneeds a tear down and a manuel cleaning and reset.

Car is jumping while excelerating at 40 miles per hour,stops jumping for a few minutes then starts jumping again at 55 miles per hour


Start with changing fuel filter, then if that doesn't work, your fuel pump may be going bad.
