All v twin engines are noisy, if you could totally silence the exhaust noise, you would be horrified how awful the motor sounds, it could probably do with the cam chain tensioner ADJUSTING. i wouldn't think it would need replacing. unfortunately the manual only recomends this being done by a qualified tech, i have a xvs 650 with same trouble. i would adjust myself if i could find out the correct tollerences.

I am replacing the one-way starter assy on a 02 v-star 1100 custom.
I did not line up the timming marks before removal!
when I line up the crankshaft key pointed straight up the center of the rear cyl, should the front piston be on compression or exhaust?
or should the mark of the front cam sprocket be pointed some were?
I know the rear cam mark should go to the top pointer! but the front not so sure? help? Reg B. thanks rburcher@cogeco.ca

I have got a yamaha xvs 1100 dragstar classic 2005 model. it ticks over but as soon as i rev up it cuts out. what do you think could be the problem ?


check the fuel filters, it sounds to me as though there is a partial blockage which allows just enough to sustain tickover and starves the bike upon rev up. this is the first step to check and the most likely. good luck.

Air cleaner clean? Is it in fact warm (the engine) .

Id be inclined to let it warm a little more. Your hot bike has advanced time and as a result is difficult when cold.

Have problems starting yamaha xvs 1100 dragstar slugish on acceleration until warmed up 10 min + backfires on deceleration and when letting off gas


Hi there fellow XVS dragstar owner!

I had the same problem before. It is usually caused by the wrong jets installed. have it Replaced with the standard jets that came with it... this will solve the problem on acceleration. Make sure the fuel and air mixture knob is set to 2.5 turns-out from full close. clean the spark plugs.. better, replace it with a new one to ensure clean burning of fuel. also, use unleaded gas. this burns better.

hope this helps
