Question about 2006 Yamaha Road Star

1 Answer

I have a 2006 Yamaha Roadstar midnightstar 1700.. it runs fine after it warms up most time. But the problem is it acts like it is missing or flooding out while riding after you take off with in the first few miles. my shop has changed the pipes and installed a jet kit. but it still does it.. and they won't touch it anymore. anyone have any ideas?

    i have never seen any black smoke.. but they have adjusted both ways and nothing works. but the plugs will fool out before service time.

    they put a jet kit in where i bought it. and then they changed the pipes after that.

Sounds like it may be over jetted, and running alittle rich. Can you see black smoke if you rev it up? Could be misadjusted floats after the kit was installed.

    I looked online, and your bike is fuel injected. Sounds like a problem with the program they are running in the computer. What type of add on did you get?

    i could be wrong, but i believe they started injecting these in 08, my 07 is carbed also. take the time to check the accelerator pump settings, mine was over set and constantly drizzling fuel as i rode. my carb changes didn't seem to give the results i expected until i reset the float level down a tad.

Fuel overflows (leaks) upon turning Roadstar 1700


not a throttle valve, but the float needle valve that shuts the fuel off with the float. the only cure for the sticking floay valve is to remove the carb and clean it.

How to adjust 2007 yamaha roadstar 1700 carberator


The most common adjustment would be to adjust your idle mixture screw. These guys make the job very easy with a thumbscrew to do the job. Tell them I sent you and that you need carb help. http://www.maxairengineering.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=MPS-PRO-RDSTR&Category_Code=ROADSTAR&Product_Count=3

They are great guys and very helpful. They have my bike running the best it ever has.
