Question about 2006 Yamaha V Star 1100 Classic

Starts fine then stalls when I give it any gas

I have put the bike up for winter this year after replacing the battery I started the bike fine after several attempts to give some throttle and having it cut off I am not sure if I need to start with plugs or water in the fuel?

Hi, Stephen if your bike has been sitting idle for months or years and you did not do any pre-storage maintenance I feel your pain it will probably have a dead battery and not want to start or if it starts it will idle and run poorly then stall, here are the following steps necessary to complete in order to get your bike back to an acceptable running condition.
1. If your battery was 2-3 years old when you last had the bike running you should replace it.
2. If you believe your battery might still be serviceable remove it from the bike and put it on a 1 or 2 amp trickle charger for 24 hours. If it is the old lead acid type with visible cells and acid levels fill each cell to the top line with distilled water and replace the caps, run the vent tube into a plastic or styrofoam cup, any cells that are cloudy/milky replace the battery.
3. After charging remove the leads and let the battery sit for a couple of hours then check the battery voltage with a volt meter, you should have 12.5 volts or better, any readings in the 11 volt range you need to do a proper load test on the battery and replace as necessary, any readings in the 10 volt range you have a dead cell and the battery needs to be replaced.
4. Drain and flush fuel tank, google " how to clean a motorcycle gas tank" find a couple forums to view the different options available.
5. Remove and inspect your air cleaner paper elements that are not oil soaked can be cleaned with a soft brush and low pressure compressed air, oil soaked elements must be replaced. Gause mesh and foam elements can be cleaned by soaking them in a container big enough to completely cover them with a solution of 1 gallon of water and 1 oz. of Dawn dishwashing liquid for small and medium size elements, for monster size double the formula and let soak for at least one hour then rinse with warm water shake off excess and let air dry, "WARNING" do not use compressed air as this will embed micro-sized dirt and road grime and destroy the mesh pattern and stretch foam elements out of shape just squeeze it like a sponge and let air dry, use a fan if you're in a hurry. When completely dry spray a very fine mist of air filter oil evenly around the whole element.
6. Remove the carburetors, disassemble and decontaminate with a carb dip or if you have EFI remove injectors and clean with carb spray and compressed air
7. Remove fuel valve and filter disassemble and clean as necessary, remove, clean, and inspect fuel and vacuum lines and replace as necessary.
8. Replace spark plugs with new ones and check for spark.

How to store your motorcycle for winter. Storing your motorcycle.


As the summer months start to come in, we all like to get our motorcycles out and start riding them, but i hear a lot of people saying help, my bike wont start! That is because when you last parked it in the shed for the start of winter, then you made no preparations. With a few simple steps, next summer, you can get your bike out, and fire it up without any problems, ready to ride. There are things you must do when you go into storage, and a few things to do when you bring your bike out.
OK,so winter is approaching, and you want to put your bike away in the shed.
First thing you need to do is drain some fluids. Drain your engine oil. Then drain your gas tank and carburetors. It is important to drain the carbys, as the fuel left in the float bowl will go bad. You can choose to totally drain your gas tank, or fill it to the top with gas. Storing a tank full with gas, leaves no room for moisture to form, causing rust on the inside of steel tanks. Next, you need to also disconnect one lead from your battery, or even better, if you have a trickle charger hooked up to it. Thats about it really. Also,if you are confident in doing so, remove spark plug, or plugs, and spray some penetrating oil down into each cylinder, turn engine over to work it through. This will prevent any moisture or corrosion from forming on the inside of your cylinders. It is also a good idea to clean or replace your spark plugs each year anyway.
Now it's summer, and you want to ride, just roll your bike out. Put in some fresh engine oil, a fresh tank of gas, and a fully charged battery, you are ready to go!

Had battery for winter put back in will run for 20 sec or so and but will start right back up for 20 sec and shut down


sounds like a fuel problem. If the battery was bad I doubt it would start and run. You didn't mention if it was carbureted or injection. Some gas can sour in a few months and that might be part of the problem. Dump some fuel treatment in and let it sit overnight. I use the stuff in the red bottle because it doesn't cause corrosion like the yellow bottle. You could have a clogged filter. Can't guarantee the isopropyl will clean it but that is a cheap and easy start. Depending on the year of the bike, you might have to change the gas filter.

Before I store my bike or mower or snow blower, I add Sta-bil gas treatment. It somehow prevents the gas from turning to goo and plugging everything up. I had a car sit for three years with that added to a full tank and it started and ran fine when I got back to it.

hope this helps and good luck.

Can"t get my 110 panther started since i set it up for the winter


Hi there, I am assuming, because you didn't really clarify much, that you did not properly winterize the bike, and there are a few issues you could have. First, if you did not drain the fuel out and did not put stabil or a similar gas additive into the tank, the fuel is probably bad, and I would drain the old gas out and place new in. If you did, do that, then I would move onto the carb, as I have the panther 100 dirt bike and their carbs are not the best to say the least, and could use a good cleaning every now and then, especially if before you put the bike up for the winter, you did not start it and shut the fuel off, letting it run till it stalled out (which clears out all the fuel in the lines and bowl of the carb. It is relatively easy to clean a carb by loosening the clamp on the intake hose, unthreading the the throttle cable assembly off the top, and loosening the other clamp on the opposite side; and removing the carb from the bike. Next, remove the bowl of the carb off the bottom by removing the center bolt on the bottom. More than likely, once the bowl is off you will see deposit build up in the bowl and the jets, and using a carb cleaner and rag to clean out the bowl, and using a screw driver to remove the pilot jet, a correct size socket to remove the main jet, spray each and every passage with carb cleaner and use an air hose to spray out any debris will usually suffice. Warning, do not use any type of metal object to try and scrape out jets, as doing so can cause damage to the jets.

If that doesn't fix the issue, than remove plug and check for spark by placing it on the head and kicking it over. If you have a good spark and the carbs are clean, and it ran fine before the winter, I would move on to checking the air filter for debris, and replacing if necessary, and lastly if all of that did not fix the problem and you have fuel getting into the engine indicated by wet spark plugs, than I would consider a faulty CDI box, which on the panther is a little black box under the seat attached to the frame by a piece of rubber, and regulates the spark. Hope this helps and good luck.

Bike starts well, 2006 but only has 1000 miles on it. sat in storage during move (7 months). drained gas and disconnected battery. idles fine but when you give the the gas to go or give it gas period it...


If the bike ran fine prior to putting it in storage and all you did was drain the fuel and disconnect the battery, its likely moisture ( condensation) developed in the carbs while it sat. this type of thing happens when fuel is drained. Your best bet is to remove the carbs and clean the jets. Its my opinion and experience to put fresh fuel in a bike along with (stable) fuel treatment prior to storing them. With the stable added to the fuel, the fuel will hold good for about 1 year.. Replacing the battery and starting them and letting them warm up to operating temp monthly while in storage is always a good idea..
I hope this helps..
