Question about 2008 Yamaha V Star 1300 Tourer

1 Answer

Why 2008 vstar 1300 only stays running when given gas?

Air filters are still white, checking the fuel filter if I can get to it. I even adjusted the idle up and it stays running. It will not stay running at the proper idle without slightly opening throttle

The pilot jets are clogged. the carburetors will need cleaned, and the pilot jets may need replaced. Alternatively, Seafoam in the intake and the fuel tank may allow for some improvement of the problem, but a carb rebuild is highly preferable.

SOURCE: Hard starting when cold, runs rough at idle and any steady speed.

Your carburetors need to be cleaned. The pilot jets are at least partially plugged.

If you are comfortable doing this yourself, you need to remove the seats, fuel tank, and air induction system before you will be able to get the carbs out. Be carefull when removing the fuel tank, there is a wire harness that will need to be un plugged from it to remove it. The wire harness plug runs under the plastic tray under the seat. There are 3 plastic rivits that will need to be removed to get to the plug. The carbs come out as a pair, and can be tough to get back in the boots.

You need to remove the float bowls, remove the jets, and blow carb cleaner and compressed air through them all. The pilot jets are most likely the only culprit, but you might as well clean everything if your going to all the trouble. You should also blow carb cleaner and compressed air through all of the other passages while your at it. Make sure that you can see through the jets and there is no debris left in them. Make sure to clean the floats, needle valves, and float bowls as well.

Then re-assemble

This happens when the bike sits for long periods. The fuel we get now days has a very short shelf life before it goes bad. Fuel oxydizes over time, and it happens even faster in a small amount that is vented which is exactly as it is when its in the carburetors of a motorcycle. When fuel oxydizes and evaporates, it leaves a gummy mess behind. The pilot jets are the smallest passages that sit in the fuel, so they naturally plug first.

You can prevent this by keeping fuel stabilizer in your fuel when ever the bike will be sitting for long periods of time. Myself personally, when I store one for the winter, I like to leave the carbs empty.

SOURCE: Vstar 650 classic. only will idle.

hello and welcome
this is a very very commom problem after the cycle has gone over a storage period of anything over a month or so. what has happened is the deteriorated fuel has plugged the idle jet, and possibley other jetting. this is verified by pulling out the choke allows it to run. because this makes of for the loss of fuel the jets are not produceing. so to fix this you will need to remove the carbs and take out the jets and clean them thoroughly with a carb cleaner and possibly a very small gauge wire to break up builup. especially in the pilot jet. unfortunately fuel added carb cleaners dont seem to work for this kind of problem and to fix right they should be disassembled and cleaned thoroughly. thank you.

Tao tao kid tv won't stay running


Could be a clogged fuel filter, or clogged air filter, or trash could've gotten into the carb. Starting with fuel filter 1st and make sure you getting good gas flow to the carb. Does it have a petcock for the gas on/off? Is it operating properly?

My Sears tractor has white smoke pouring out of it right after starting. It is fairly new,, some 217 hours on it.


Answer to your question is this,if this keeps up smoking,i would check the carburetor fuel filter,for signs of gas collected up in the filter. If there gas you need to adjust the carburetor,by adjusting the fuel mixture. The carburetor uses both fuel and air mixture. To much fuel(Rich) floods the carburetor,too little fuel(Lean),there is more air than fuel. You will have adjust the carburetor's needle valve to receive the correct balance between the two. To do this check the carburetor for a slotted screw,take a screwdriver. Turn the screw in to get a lean mixture,turn screw out to get a rich mixture. After making your adjustment,start the tractor,if not already running. Watch to see if it is still smoking,if it is, adjust the needle valve screw in more until the smoking stops,also keep watch on the filter for gas,in the filter assembly. This is not where your gas needs to be. I need to inform you to also,to be sure that the air filter is cleaned up(No Gas Accumulation in the filter) -This is a must do to possibly,keep from having a (FIRE). When making fuel adjustments,i would check the spark plug(s) for carbon deposit building up,that would cause the motor not to start,or run smoothly. Anyway,be SAFE,your dealing with GAS.
