Question about 2004 Yamaha V Star Classic

3 Answers

I have a 2004 Yamaha Vstar 1100 that stalls when I take the choke completely off. It will run on 1/3 choke, but back fires terribly. I have replaced both spark plugs, the battery and put a fuel additive in it in case it was bad gas. I don't have a trouble shooting manual to know where the air filter is and suspect that is the next thing to try. Can you help Dawn Winter Park, FL

I would leave the choke on and raise the idle screw located in between the to carbs in till you notice the idle getting higher then once you here that I would lower the choke until you think it sounds normal. I would continue to do this until you have no more choke applied then I would check the response of the throttle

Dawn it is running lean if it will run on 1/3 choke when you choke it like that it actually restricts the air flow into the carburetor my suggestion would be to remove the carburetor and clean it real good and try that first before going anywhere else

I would check the intake boots around the carbs may be loose. I had the same problem
on my 2006 1100 vstar and this corrected the problem.

Vstar carb


There is no spring, the cable should close the choke..if the cable is bending instead of closing the choke, then the choke must be sticking...it should close very easy. I would try just cleaning it with some carb/choke cleaner...maybe some wd-40

Hello please advice as to why th ebike will just idle and with choke on full but just off if choke is off or acceleratoer is turned on high i have 2004 vstar 1100 with only 420kms


sounds like the carbs are gummed up since its a low milage bike. either open the carbs and clean them or use a fuel system cleaner and hope for the best.
