Question about 2006 Yamaha V Star Custom

1 Answer

06' V-star 650 wont idle...

Ok here is the deal....
My bike sat for close to a year (inside). It will not idle and when I when I take the choke of it just dies, also when I give it a little throttle it cuts out. So I unhooked the fuel line after the shut off switch and turned the fuel on and it flowed fine. Next I took all the gas out and removed the gase tank took and inspected the carb everything looked fine but got out the carb cleaner and went to town....each carb has a primary and pilot jet. I was only able to remove the larger jet screw in each carb and put a pipe cleaner in and sprayed it down. and sprayed some into the smaller one cause it looked like it had a small hole in the screw. I then removed the air cleaner and removed the diaphram cover and cleaned that out...but still everything looked like it was brand new. Put it all back together and no change same problems....so then I put a little of the old gas in and drove half a mile to the gas station and filled it up...and drove it half a mile home and no change, once I got home i let it run for 5 min. and no change. Whats my next step.......???????

Take the carbs back off and clean the jet completely,This is a carb issue and that is what you should focus on.

Bike's been sitting most of the summer. Have no acceleration or power.


Hi, Scott if your bike has been idle for months or years and does not want to start or runs poorly you will have to deal with a few remedies:
1. Drain and flush fuel tank, google " how to clean a motorcycle gas tank" find a couple forums to view the different options available.
2. Remove your air cleaner and clean and re-oil per Mfg. specifications.
3. Remove the carburetor, disassemble and decontaminate with a carb dip or if you have EFI remove injectors and clean with carb spray and compressed air
4. Remove fuel valve and filter disassemble and clean as necessary, remove fuel lines and replace with new ones.
5. Replace spark plug with a new one and check for spark.

When is a valve adjustment due on a 06 R1


rate my post for perfect solution
Instructions
    • 1 Open the choke by pulling the choke lever on the left handlebar control toward you. Set the bike on its kickstand, put it in "Neutral" and start it up. Allow the Road Star to warm up for about 10 minutes before continuing with the adjustment procedure.
    • 2 Locate the idle adjustment screw on left side of the bike just below the rider's seat. Twist the adjuster screw clockwise one full turn. This will ensure the bike stays alive so you can adjust it to the proper setting.
    • 3 Close the choke lever and listen to the engine carefully. Twist the idle adjustment screw slowly counterclockwise. You should hear the engine speed start to slow.
    • 4 Twist the idle screw counterclockwise until you hear the engine start to sputter and die. When this happens, stop and turn the screw one half turn clockwise. Your bike should now be idling at the correct speed.

Hi, Tinita and the usual suspects are:
1. Throttle cables improperly adjusted or pinched.
2. Idle adjusting screw needs to be backed off.
3. Intake system air leak.
4. Fast idle choke ramp is not releasing.
5. Broken throttle return spring.
6. Damaged diaphragm or slide.
7. Faulty MAP, TPS, ATS, O2, VSS sensors or wiring/connector

I have a 05' Yamaha 650 V Star and it will only run if the choke is fully out, hot or cold engine. If the choke is pushed in, it immediately dies.


Has the bike been parked for two weeks or more? If so, the fuel has most likely gummed up and plugged fuel passages and jets. Might try adding 1/2 to full can of SeaFoam to existing fuel in the tank, crank the bike and run (with choke if you have to) at a high idle for several minutes. Shut it down and let set for an hour or so allowing the SeaFoam to work. Start bike again and run at high idle again, trying to run it without the choke. If this doesn't work, then the carb probablyneeds a tear down and a manuel cleaning and reset.

My yamaha 1998 royal star xvz 1300 wont stay runin runs on choke then wen u take it off will shut off ...?


If the bike sat through winter...carbs may be gummed up on idle circuit....could try a product like Seafoam ...add to tank.....run for awhile to get the treated gas in carbs....then let it sit a day and retry.
You're certain its actually firing on all 4 plug wires?

My bike hasnt been ridden for a few months, and you need to give it full choke to start and keep it going, it wont idle when the choke is depressed, It is A Vstar 650 Classic


was fuel left in the carburetors when you parked it your metering jets might be slightly clogged with varnish i dont recomend opening them yourself take it to a professional and next time you park it for an extended period of time close the fuel valve and leave the bike running until the carbs run out of gas "the bike will stop running when this happens"

Hi,i have an 06 aprillia mx 2 stroke. i tried starting it the other day after it had bin sat for a few months but just wouldnt go. im not exactly sure on the correct procedure for a kick start...any advice...


Check your spark plug. If it is not all black, it should be ok. If it is, replace it. Reinstall new plug, Kick it full choke no throttle. Let it run for 15 secs with the choke on. Shut the choke off while reving it. If the bike will not idle, clean the carb. Chaz Moto DC

2001 v star 650 classic won't idle after being stored


You have a gummed up mainjet. Always store a gas engine with Staybul gas additive to avoid this problem in the future. Now, on to the current problem. Since the bike will at least idle your in luck. Just go down to an auto parts store and get a can of Sea Foam. I usually find it at NAPA it's a white can that looks like it came from a gas station in the 1940's Because it did. Mechanics have been useing it for years. Anyway, dump about half the can in the tank with a couple gallons of gas and fire it up. Let it idle a long time. Then start trying to ride it. You may have to let it set over night if it's really gummed up but it will clean it out. Easy fix, and you can leave it in with no problems. Happy motoring.

Starter problems


that seems very strange, was ok when put away. do you have all other electrics working. . stadium yamaha . com has exploded views of your bike which may help you figure out how to get to it. i would like to say that it seems more likely for it to be a fuse or wire problem more than the starter itself.. i have a 99 xvs 650 and it had sat for 4 years before i got it and had no problem starting it.
