V star 1100 05' starting problem

Hi, I have a V star 1100 2005 bike. I have had the bike for about 1 year. Ran fine until late last summer when it started having a problem starting.
As soon as the engine cranks over there seems to be a loud mechanical ping from the the starter motor (I think). It does it 1 in 15 or 20 starts. I was dealing with it until recentlty it got much worse. The final straw was when I went to start the bike and it went to turn over and just seized up. I let off the starter and tried again and it started fine.
At this time I broke out the manual and dove into the clutch side. I took out the the starter clutch which appears to be in perfect condition; no signs of any damage. I looked at the starter as well and it seem to be fine.
I have been advised by a dealer that I may have a detonation problem??
I have been at this for a while and am coming up short on ideas. Once the bike starts it runs good. Just the problem starting.
Any help is appreciated.
Thanks, Derek

Hi Bullsport,

This problem occurs on too much starter cranking i.e. the engine doesnt respond or fire up at a go.
Try to check the bike's spark plugs.
Probabley it needs a good tune up ( the bike).

Good luck.

Bike's been sitting most of the summer. Have no acceleration or power.


Hi, Scott if your bike has been idle for months or years and does not want to start or runs poorly you will have to deal with a few remedies:
1. Drain and flush fuel tank, google " how to clean a motorcycle gas tank" find a couple forums to view the different options available.
2. Remove your air cleaner and clean and re-oil per Mfg. specifications.
3. Remove the carburetor, disassemble and decontaminate with a carb dip or if you have EFI remove injectors and clean with carb spray and compressed air
4. Remove fuel valve and filter disassemble and clean as necessary, remove fuel lines and replace with new ones.
5. Replace spark plug with a new one and check for spark.

Bike will start but stops after a second or two


If it was used "once or twice all summer", and you left the ga in it, the carbs are probably gummed/clogged up.
When gas sits, it's components start to separate, and it turns almost into a varnish.
This starts clogging up the jets and ports in the carb.

You probably need to "boil out" the carbs

V-star fuel filter


Sounds like the carbs have trash in them,and need to be taken off,completely disassembled,and cleaned. Then re-mounted and synchronized.

How often do i need to replace my fuel filter?


SIMPLE MAINT SCHEDULE , IS CHANGING IT ONCE A YEAR, but it depends where you live, If this truck is a diesel & you live in a northern climate, change your filter once a year but not until you know for ceretain that you are buying winter grade fuel, ie: nov
Reason for this is that there will be wax/parafin build up in the filter that your ran on the summer fuel, it can congeal in the filter in winter becasue of this build up. If you replace the filter in late autumn, then tat filter will not have a congeal problem because the there hasnt been anything but winter grade fuel through it, , and its safe to run all next summer , but the summers residue will cause problems next winter , so change again in late autumn .

Runs fine until I engage the PTO and am on a slight incline.Starts to spit and sputter and cut off. Checked Plug Gap, Magneto Gap. Worked fine last summer. All I did this time was replace the blades....


check your fuel lines for clogging if it ran fine last year means you have a clogged fuel line somewhere or the carb itself is stopped up disassemble the carb and do a visual inspection also use B12 chemtool carb cleaner use both the spray and the fuel cleaner treatment i know for sure your problem is related to ethanol fuel hope this helps good luck and always run your equipment completely out of fuel for long term storage or between seasons
