Simply disconnect the fuel supply line to the carbs,point the fuel pump into a bucket and turn on the key,fuel should start pumping out of the pump,the pump only puts out about 3psi so you should b able to put your finger over the outlet and the pump should stop pumping..hopr this helps

I have a 98 Yamaha Vstar Classic 650. It runs good no problems but when on highway and get to 105-110 km/h it acts like it is running out of gas and stalls, i have to put choke on and it starts right back...


Change your plug first, cheap easy to do.

Then check for dirt in the carbs, normally colects in the float bowl & if that is the problem fit one of them paper inline fuel filters for future.

If thats not it then look at your ignition, coil first (again cheapest first).

I have a 1999 VSta XVS 1100L. It was running great


the first thing I would be doing would be to disconect the leds & return the system to standard if your power returns the problem is with the leds did your well meaning son install a relay when he fitted the leds if not they are probably robbing power thereby causeing slow opperation of the fuel pump or weakened spark
