Question about 2005 Yamaha V Star 1100 Classic

1 Answer

Rode for about 50 miles in 105 degree weather. Got off for about 5 minutes. When I got back on to start it up, it turned over about 2 times, then ALL the electrics went off. I have checked the fuse box AND the 2 main fuses under the seat. All are good as was the battery. Any suggestions?

    Polarcycle, I have checked the fusebox,, and there's no power there. I have quite a bit of electric troubleshooting experience and have methodically checked everything that's NOT under the gas tank. I have 12.78 volts to the main fuse bat+ terminal with the key off. As soon as I turn the key on though, I get no lights, no power to the controls and at the bat+ I show .004 volts, but when I key off, I show 12.7 again. Sounds like a short, but I don't see any frayed wires...

Make sure your fuses have power when the key is turned on. Or, you may have inadvertantly hit the kill switch, or have a problem with it.

What sort of oil does my harley rocker c take


You do not mention engine or primary or transmission. HD SYN3 can be used in any or all. I believe for the engine the best is Harley-Davidson 360 (20/50) in most operating temperatures I am operating in. If you know how HD tested, developed and otherwise came up with this oil it is quite impressive. You could use synthetic (SYN3) but I don't I just use the regular HD 360 motorcycle oil. You do need motorcycle oil because it has necessary, very beneficial additives that are not in automotive oils. Unless you are running in very hot outside temperatures I do not see the benefit to SYN3 but if one has money to throw around it is very good oil also. Thing is to change it always before it gets a chance to break down and or turn dirty. HD recommends changing the oil and filter at 5000 miles or 8000 km intervals and I would recommend that or sooner in very hot or dusty conditions. Using synthetic oil does not extend these mileages between changes. If you have been using one type of oil for an extended time it is usually not recommended to change to a different type i.e. HD 360 to SYN3 or vice versa. If you do not know what was used before pick a type now and stick with it. SYN3 is all 20W50. (The W stands for winter.) The oil has a viscosity of 20 cold and will not thin out more than a 50 weight would when it is hot.

Harley recommends HD 360 engine oil as follows:

H.D. Multi-Grade SAE 10W40 as excellent for cold weather starts below 50 degrees F and for use with lowest ambient temperature below 40 degrees F (4 degrees C).
H.D. Multi-Grade SAE 20W50 as good for cold weather starts below 50 degrees F and for use with lowest ambient temperature above 40 degrees F (4 degrees C).

H.D. Multi-Grade SAE 50 as poor for cold weather starts below 50 degrees F and for use with lowest ambient temperature above 60degrees F (16 degrees C).

H.D. Multi-Grade SAE 60 as poor for cold weather starts below 50 degrees F and for use with lowest ambient temperature above 80 degrees F (27 degrees C).

For transmission and/or primary use SYN3 or FORMULA+ TRANSMISSION AND PRIMARY CHAINCASE LUBRICANT (Part No. 99851-05, US quart size).


I won't deal with fork oil at all.

Whatever you do, NEVER use anything but DOT 4 Brake Fluid.in a DOT 4 system. Also be careful with it as it will eat away any and all painted surfaces and even the black powder coated brake fluid reservoir coatings.
If DOT 5 goes into a DOT4 system or DOT 4 goes into a DOT5 system all rubber brake system components will be destroyed.

I turned on my tv and everything was fine it started to make a little wisttling sound and all of the sudden the pic dissapeard no audio and no pic the on light stays on but nothing shows please help .


There are two possible problems. We will concentrate on one first. You say the red light stays on, and the TV will not power up. Actually this is a good sign. This TV has one bad capacitor and a one weak capacitor. The bad capacitor location is C421, which is a 200 volt 10 MF at 85 degrees. Replace with a 200 volt 10Mf at 105 degrees. The second capacitor that is weak is the C482,which is a 50 volt 4.7Mf at 85 degrees. Replace with a 50 volt 4.7 Mf at 105 degrees. This should enable your TV to come back on. If the TV will not come on we will have to replace the eeprom. At this time I believe the eeprom is fine. In either case, the capacitors will need to be replaced. Try that and let me know how you do. Thanks for asking me and show all hands of support!
