Make sure you have petrol, if plugs and fuses are OK do lights work?

If you turn on the lights do they remain bright? Have you made sure the engine stop switch is in the run position. Is the stand switch working OK also is the clutch switch working? Do you have to pull the clutch lever in to start the bike normally if so this could mean the switch at the clutch lever stock is faulty, or come loose. Find the 2 wires that go into the clutch stock and gently pull on them nothing should move. If the wires pull out with the switch connected to them, push the switch back until it clicks. If everything seems OK in that area try spraying some lube between the clutch lever and stock the switch plunger might be sticky and not coming out properly.

SOURCE: 2004 Yamaha V-star 650, wont start.

change the coil you may not think it got hot but sometimes a coil can overheat on the inside just enough to break the copper winding. when riding hard slow down for a couple of miles to give everything time to get back to normal temps before shutting it off

SOURCE: 2002 Yamaha V-Star Classic 1100 Will not run over 70 MPH

Hi,
The first thing you need to check is the air filter. Sometimes critters can get into the airbox when a bike sits for awhile. Sounds crazy, but it has happened to me. If nothing is blocking the filter, give it a quick clean since you have it out.
Next things to check:
Faulty diaphragm
Improperly adjusted fuel level
Clogged or loose main jet
Faulty fuel pump
You may not be able to check these on your own, but these are the next likely culprits.
Hope this helped

SOURCE: The check engine light on

Error code 24 is a faulty oxygen sensor -- a relatively cheap fix. Incidentally, a faulty O2 sensor is the most common cause for a steady "Check Engine" light on any vehicle. Your V-Star is just courteous enough to tell you exactly what is wrong.

2009 v star 1300 won't idle runs rough


Hi, Snakeman_982 the carburetor throttle shaft wheel has two cables the cable closest to the right side of the bike is the throttle cable and the one closest to the left side is the idle cable. Right about the middle between the two is the idle adjustment bolt it faces out towards the air filter end of the carb . The engine should be at operating temperature with the enrichener off to set the idle between 950-1050 rpm. Turn the idle adjustment bolt clockwise to increases idle speed and counterclockwise to decrease idle speed. If you have access to your air fuel mixture bolt you may adjust it as well if not there is a video below on how to gain access, make sure you start with clean or new spark plugs. Gently turn the air fuel mixture bolt clockwise until it starts to bottom out "STOP" do not over tighten as it will damage the taper on the end, now back it out 2 full turns to establish a starting point start the engine and check the idle rpm's and adjust the idle adjustment bolt accordingly for 950-1050 rpm if necessary, adjust the air fuel mixture bolt 1/4 turn at a time and let the engine settle for about 10 seconds, clockwise for a leaner mixture and counterclockwise for a richer mixture you are seeking the highest rpm your air fuel mixture bolt can acquire without going past 3 full turns from bottom then readjusting the idle adjustment bolt back down to 950-1050 rpm If you can not detect any rpm change and can not stall the engine by turning the air-fuel mixture bolt all the way in then your pilot/low-speed jet is too big. Final adjustment should be made with a clean air filter mounted to the carburetor.
