Question about 2007 Yamaha Stratoliner

1 Answer

Have 2007 Stratoliner just developed a squeaking noise at idol. Sounds like it is coming from transfer case or front cylinder. what could be a probable cause?

Oil is good. Have not checked transfer case but previous owner changed lube at about 26,000 miles. Bike now has 28,000 miles. Note: Seemed to start making noise after warming up

Hi, Anonymous I would love to help you with your engine or chassis noise but I just loaned my brand new pair of listening ears to your local dealer's chief technician so he could take your bike for a test ride and give you his professional opinion and estimate about your noise and repair cost. If you are a little short on "DRACHMA" and a Dealership is not on your list of fun places to visit then perhaps the list below will help soothe your worried mind so you can make an informed decision.
1. Bearings---SCREECH
2. Belts---CHIRP
3. Brake Rotors---BUZZ
4. Chains---RATTLE
5. Clutches---CHATTER
6. Shifting Trans---CLUNK
7. Gears---WHINE

SOURCE: too much oil in engine

The cutting out is just a coincidence. Go with the correct amount of oil. The piston is splash lubricated. Too much oil kills the splash and the cylinder gets poor lubrication. If your model has a carb, ( as opposed to fuel injection ), then clean the carb and air filter then put in a new stock NGK spark plug. This should take care of the problem.

Please rate this solution. Thanks niknak!

SOURCE: Yamaha TW 200 starts but won't run.

If the bike has sat for a long period of time without being run - the gas that is sitting in the carb(s) will shellac.. Then the carb(s) would need to be cleaned and "rebuilt"..

SOURCE: What do I need to do to change spark plugs on a

Some basic rules I've learned and all of 20 minutes out of you life. People complain about valve noises or sluggish throttle response, well a crisp set of plugs firing does a lot to resolve these issues and for only $10 (standard plugs) is the cheapest performance mod going.
1) Replace your plugs annually (or at a minumum follow schedule of rear tire replacement) regardless of amount miles.
2) Plain and simple. Don't waste money on iridium because of #1 they spark the same it's just the tips that are suppposed to last longer.
3) Full removal of the tank is not needed but you will need to move it out of the way. Remove seat, remove center speedo and disconnect connectors, remove tank bolts, disconnect vent tube at the front portion of tank, lay a towel across the frame where seat normally goes, lift tank and turn tank sideways it will rest there without removing gas lines underneath, stock air box removal is not needed (BAK is even better for access), not certain what they mean by rider's seat bracket (at the back of the seat?) but obviously this is not needed either. There are wires zip tied to the frame that might need to be pushed out of the way or carefully cut the zip ties and just add new ones when done. (This just allows better access to get to the spark plug on right rear cylinder.)
4) A long screwdriver with small hose on end helps retrieve and reinstall plug on the front cylinder (unless you have very long fingers)
5) Go to auto parts store and purchase a socket with universal swivel for proper angle to losen or tighten plugs
6) A small amount of anti-seize compound on the threads is never a bad thing unless you use too much or it smears across the tips which would probably burn off anyway but that's just sloppy mechanics. (You want to be a sloppy hack like that, well you're outta the club... Go ride another brand.)
7) Use your hand never the socket to start the threads on the new plug. Place new plug in hole near cylinder and spin in reverse to align the threads then go in normal direction. If it does not feel correct at the start - never force it.
8) Do not over torque the spark plugs when tightening.
9) When reconnecting coil wires make certain you press down enough for a positive click to ensure proper connection.
10) Put tank and seat back in place and prepare for the response "why did I wait so long..." on the first ride...
Hope that helps.

SOURCE: need procedure for changing oil on stratoliner

The proper instructions are on pages 6-10 thru 6-12 of the owners manaul. If you don not have a copy you can view one here.
https://www.starmotorcycles.com/star/service/viewmanual.aspx?ls=star&yr=2006&lid=2&mid=1191

Here is a list of oil filters which will fit the 'liners, besides the OEM filter:
This info was on the forum some time back, filters for Liners:

  • Amsoil ……………………… (SMF103) chrome (SMF103C)
  • Bosch ……………………… (3300) (3330) (3323)
  • Mobil One…………………… M108
  • BOSCH……………………….3300 3323
  • K&N…………………………….KN-303
  • NAPA GOLD……………...1358
  • PUROLATOR……………….ML16817
  • Purolator PureONE.....PL14612 Buy @ Amazon.com 2/$5.88
  • Purolator PureOne......PL14610 Buy @ Amazon.com 2/$5.88
The 14612 is the short filter. The longer one, which also fits the Liner, is the 14610 model (in case it matters).
  • STP…………………………...SDF13
  • WIX…………………………..51358
  • FRAM………………………...6017A
  • HASTINGS…………………LF-113
  • HI FLO………………………HF-303
  • EMGO……………………….10-82220
  • PER-FORM…………………J-503
  • Super Tech………………..ST7317 (Wal-Mart)
The Wal-Mart ST 6607 is a little smaller than the stock filter and the 7317 is maybe a half inch longer. Both will work fine.

You will want to change the crush washers on the plugs.
The crush washers can be obtained at your nearest Yamaha dealer, or similar washers can be obtained at Advanced Auto. The size is 1/2 (or M14) called oversize, crush washers.
Oil-tite part #65310
They come in a 3 pack.

2007 cadillac esclade ext front end squeaking.


well it can still be anything, locating a steering/suspension noise can be hard. Based on what you typed, what first comes to mind is the steering pump is worn out. If it is more of a low whining sound instead of squeaking, its probably the steering pump.

I would drain the oil and refresh inc filter, take all plugs out and spin it over with new oil fitted and filter, if it feels sounds tight, squirt some WD40 in the pots, spin again if looser maybe a strip down eh.

I keep loosing belts on my stratoliner. Over the last year I have broken 3 belts on my 2006 Yamaha Stratoliner. Wondering if it is a supension problem or is belt tension a weekly adjustment. never had any...


Hi, Albert belt squeaking or chirping or buzzing or singing are sounds that make up the orchestra of "Belt Music" these noises are caused by a variety of conditions that can usually be corrected ie. belt tension too loose, swing arm alignment no true, warped or loose sprockets and bent sprocket guards, but the majority of music is mainly caused by miles and miles of heat build up from the engine, transmission, and sprockets transferring that heat to the drive belt, and over time the sides of the belt will become crystallized/glazed into a finish that is harder than "Chicken Lips" and everyone knows that "Chicken Lips" are harder than diamonds. This is the reason your brakes squeak. There are many home remedies out there, fan belt spray, rubbing a bar of soap on the sides, Dupont Teflon Lubricant, grease, silicone spray, WD-40 etc. etc. these are no more than Band-Aids and the noise just comes back in a couple of days, You must remove the "Chicken Lips" The first and most important thing you can do are align the belt in the sprockets so that it tracks dead center not rubbing up against the sprocket guard this may require using shims on the front and rear sprockets, while the belt is off, check the teeth for being broken-cracked-missing, check the sprockets for having square teeth instead of rounded teeth, if any of these conditions exist, replace the belt and both sprockets. If everything looks ok then place the belt on its side and with a drill or die grinder install a 2-3 inch velcro sanding pad with a ScotchBrite disc, gently dust both sides of the belt to remove the shiny crystallized glaze the surface will become dull once the fresh material is exposed. Reinstall the shimmed sprockets and reconditioned belt and adjust the tension with no rider on board to 5/16-3/8" up and down with 10lbs. of force, I have had excellent results with this method and it is cheaper than buying a $300 new belt. Again the key to this procedure is "BELT ALIGNMENT" you need to keep the sides of the belt away from the sprocket guards.
