The problem is most likely the pilot jets in the carbs are clogged. As gasoline sits, it changes its form to that of a varnish or jellied state. This can take as little as 3 months or less. There are a collection of jets in the carbs designed to effect specific parts of the throttle input, but your main focus is the pilot jets. These are the smallest ones and are easiest to clog.
When you disassemble the float bowl area (bottoms) of the carbs, remove ALL the jets and soak them in carb cleaner. Using compressed air, blow through all of the passages in the carb body. Remove the jets from the carb cleaner and blow compressed air through the jet orifices. Carefully reassemble the carbs and reinstall them on the bike and you should be all set. :)
If you get stuck give me a call. I'd be glad to help!

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.

I've got a 2001 Yamaha V Star 1100 Classic that I thought I prepared well for the winter. I added fuel stabilizer to a full tank last last fall. I got one small but issue free ride yesterday, but today...


Some times the fuel stabilizer can make it back fire so constantly top up your tank until you run all the old mix gas thru just keep diluting the fuel with fresh stuff, also be sure to use only high test fuel and mabe check your plugs out as well for fouling those are the cheapest ideas you can try for now!

My 2001 yamaha 1100 v-star custom has a hard time starting.


Hi, Ataylor42779 and the usual suspects are:
1. Spark plugs in bad condition or have an improper gap or are partially fouled.
2. Spark plug cables in bad condition.
3. Battery damaged or nearly discharged, should have 12.5 volts.
4. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
5. Throttle controls not adjusted correctly.
6. Water or dirt in the fuel system.
7. Water or dirt in the carburetor.
8. Faulty fuel pump.
9. Intake air leak.
10. Fuel tank vent hose and vapor valve plugged, or fuel line closed off, restricting fuel flow.
11. Enricher valve inoperative.
12. Engine lubricant to heavy (winter operation).
13. Ignition is not functioning properly (possible sensor failure).
14. Faulty ignition coil.
15. Valves sticking.

Hi, Johnathon7108 and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
2. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
3. Faulty main circuit breaker and or connections.
4. Faulty ignition coil and or connections.
5. Faulty spark plug, oil or gas fouled, wrong heat range or service type, wrong gap, loose in the cylinder head, broken electrode or insulator.
6. Faulty spark plug cables, leaking or broken, internal damage check for spark leakage in the dark.
7. Faulty ignition module, switch, CKP, MAP, CMP, sensor and or any connector in the ignition circuit could have corroded, loose, or broken pins/sockets
8. Burnt exhaust valve or air leak in the exhaust system.

V star 1100 05' starting problem


Hi Bullsport,

This problem occurs on too much starter cranking i.e. the engine doesnt respond or fire up at a go.
Try to check the bike's spark plugs.
Probabley it needs a good tune up ( the bike).

Good luck.
