Ticking noise is common with the V-Star models. This is not a problem.

Just picked up a 2006 v-star 1100 custom. when the engine is warmed up i am hearing a ticking coming from the front cylinder. the bike has been sitting for awhile and only has 5800 km(3625 miles) on it....

The ticking could be excessive valve clearance but since it's popping on deceleration, it's possible what you hear is an exhaust leak. Check the pipe connections at the cylinder. This is a very common issue - especially because the front pipe has to be removed to change the oil filter, so if the problem began after service it's entirely possible they re-used the exhuast gasket.

I hope this helps.

My 1100 V-star Classic idles fine. Once i ride it and it warms up it floods. You can hear the fuel pump pumping trying to keep up. It will only start with the choke on at that point.

Hi, Brtush04 and the usual suspects are:
1. Dirt or other foreign matter between float valve and its seat.
2. Float valve sticking.
3. Float valve and/or valve seat worn or damaged.
4. Float misadjusted.
5. Float cracked, leaky or damaged.
6. Excessive "PUMPING" of hand throttle grip.

Bike starts fine on choke then ticks over when choke off. within 2-3 mins the revs decrease to the point of stalling. have adjusted tick over to around 900 revs but as soon as engine warm the problem re...

If your bike has ever sat for more than a few months at any time, the carburetors could be plugged with gasoline residue. If so, they will need to be disassembled and cleaned.
Otherwise, make sure all of the normal tune up items have been performed; valves adjusted, air filter, spark plugs, etc. And make sure there are no air leaks between the carburetors and the engine.
Finally, if the above things are all good, then I would perform a compression check. With the throttle held wide open, you should see at least 140psi of compression, on every cylinder. Anything lower than that will cause an erratic idle quality and overall poor performance.

I found the valve specs for an adjustment on my 2006 yamaha custom 1100 on line the exhaust is at .12 and intake at .07 but i am still getting a backfire and now i can hear the valves ticking what could i...

If they are ticking, they are set too loose. try tightening them until they seat snuggly against the feeler gauge, tighten the nut, then wiggle the feeler gauge out. I am assuming you know the valves need to be adjusted while the piston for that cylinder is at top dead center?

Engine ticks

You need to get your valves adjusted. When an engine is new, all your parts are not worn. As time goes on, mechanical parts break down. your valves are riding on your camshaft, and eventually wear down. You need to re-shim your valves to maintain the clearance that it had when it was new. You can do it yourself, but you are better taking it to a mechanic. They have the right tools. Shouldn't cost too much. This is a common procedure. Dirt bikes have this same problem, mostly because of the high RPMs and engine break-down is more rapid.

Need to know what to set valves at on a 2002yamaha v-star 1100

I use a standard setting of .003" on the intake valve, and .005" on the exhaust valve. Works really well 99% of the time.
