Question about 2001 Yamaha V Star 1100 Classic
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!
