Question about 2006 Yamaha Royal Star Tour Deluxe

2 Answers

Gas pours out of bike when I turn the key

I bought a 2006 Royal Star Tour Deluxe brand new in 2008.  I was worried the bike was sitting too long on the show floor.  Do they have fuel in them on the show floor?  Out of the box the bike was bad cold.  It took a long time to warm up.  I told my service tech and he said to run some carb cleaner.  I did and after storing it for the winter with Stabil in the tank, it shot out gas when I tried to start it.  I only have 1,000 miles on it and they say if it is the carbs it isn't covered under my 5 year warranty.  Is it possible that it got gummed up on the show floor before I bought it?  I don't feel I have done anything wrong. Thanks

Sounds like one really crappy and dumb dealer if you ask me. Yes, they usually have gas in the tank on the showroom floor. Yes, varnish can build up while on the floor. The good thing is that cleaning a carb is not very hard.

Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Is there any water or trash in the bowl? Drain a cup of gas from the tank. Is there any water or trash in the cup? Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, ( not all bikes have a water trap bowl ).

Drain the carburetor. There should be a screw on the lower side of the carb float bowl. Remove the screw then replace it after the fuel drains. Turn the gas back on and wait a minute for the carb to fill with gas. Install a new stock NGK spark plug and try to start the engine. If the bike doesn't start and run properly then shut off the gas and remove the carburetor from the engine.

Remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the carb. Remove the idle screw and the air screw on the outside throat of the
carb and spray into the screw holes as well.
< < READ CLOSELY > >
Be sure to put these two screws back in the same hole they came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two screws down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each screw one and one half turns outward. Put the rest of the
carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine. This process should get you back on the road.

Please rate this solution. Thanks!

Depending on where you live there might be a far simpler solution. If your state requires use of reformulated gasoline your leaking problem is the hoses themselves. Reformulated gasoline eats away at the rubber while the bike sits and degrades it to the point that it will gum up the carbs and cause the bike not to run. You will have to replace all the fuel hoses with new ones and then clean the carbs. It should run okay then.

SOURCE: how do I check the oil level on a 2005 yamaha

You should have a site glass on the side of the motor down low along the frame rail. You will need to have the bike set strait up and down to get a reading so have a friend hold it up right for you. The oil level should be inbetween the top line and the bottom line that is on the case beside the site window.

SOURCE: whats the procedure for changeing air filters in a

This procedure must be performed on both sides - you'll find the air filter cases mounted high, immediately behind the cowlings. Yamaha specifies removing the cowlings, but I just remove the top screw in the front of the cowling and bend it forward slightly to get to screws and bolts.

The air cleaner cases are mounted by hex-head screws top and bottom; loosen them, then look for a large rubber hose from the case to a duct beside the case. The case is held by a flexible clamp with a phillips-head screw adjustment - loosen the screw and the case can be removed.

Turn the case so that the rubber hose is facing up; there are five screws holding the case halves together. Remove them to split the case. The filter is secured to the side of the case that the rubber hose joins, loosen the two screws in the front (forward-facing) of the filter and remove.

Secure new filter with the screws that held the old one, rejoin the case halves, put the case behind the cowling, secure the rubber hose to the duct, screw top and bottom bolts through the case to their mounts, tighten cowling mounts.

Repeat on the other side and you're done!

It's located under the left rear cylinder side cover. Loosen the three bolts holding the side cover to the cylinder; you'll find a "trapdoor" into the crankcase. Open the "trapdoor:, and the cylinder bleeder will be immediately beneath it.

My 2006 Yamaha Royal Star Tour Deluxe gives off a foul rotten egg smelling stench that seems to be coming from the battery. The bike has fried two brand new batteries in just two days of riding on each....


The egg smell is the battery. as it overcharges and overheats, this gas is flammable as well so no sparks.
The regulator is definately shot, but possibly the alternator windings as well.
Not certain on that model but it may have an alternator with an internal regulator.
Unfortunately can be an expensive exercise.

Hi, Osierj and the usual suspects are:
1. Damaged or restricted fuel tank venting system.
2. Loose float bowl screws.
3. Damaged float bowl o-ring.
4. improper fuel level in the float bowl.
5. Worn or dirty inlet valve or seat.
6. Damaged or leaking float assembly.

Where do you check the oil level on a 2008 royal star touring deluxe


There's a glass window on the right side of the crankcase marked for high (max) and low (min) levels. Get on hands and knees, have somebody hold the bike upright, and look under the front crankcase cover directly beside the right operator's footrest; you'll probably need a flashlight to read it.
