Question about 2002 Yamaha V Star 1100 Classic
I just had the starter clutch replaced on my V star 1100. After, I cleaned the carburetors, adjusted the valves, changed the fuel filter. Plugs and air filter are fine. Gas is fresh. The bike starts easily and idles perfectly, even revs great at stand still. Yet when I try to ride it, it will balk once under load. Impossible to make it past 2nd gear.
I have ran out of ideas. Anybody know what the issue could be?
Thanks in advance.
Sometimes it is hard to tell at low speeds if the fuel mix is too lean or if it is too rich. Simple to work at though. Let's say the mix is too lean. Remove the slide from the throat of the carb then move the clip on the jet needle down one notch. This richens the low end mix. Try it out. If it is better then try another notch. Choose which is best.
Now lets say the original mix is too rich. Remove the slide from the throat of the carb then move the clip on the jet needle up one notch from the original clip position. This leans the low end mix. Try it out. If it is better then try another notch. Choose which is best.
Pleas rate this solution. Thanks r_vietzke09!
