I have a 2002 yamaha vstar classic that had been sitting up for awhile. i changed the plugs fresh fuel and cleaned the carbs. when it sits on the kickstand it spits and sputters but when i stand it up it...

Thank you for the inquiry.
This sounds like the classic problem we all have after storing our bikes all winter. The gas tends to shellac up and leave residue in the carburetor, jets, sediment bowls, and filters. Suggest draining your gas (use it for your lawnmower) and replacing with fresh higher octane premium gas. There are some fuel additives that clean quite. Try one of those. Change your fuel filter. You may also have to remove the carburetors sediment bowls and clean the shellac out of the pilot jet, normally not necessary. If you haven't had a tune up for a while that would also be a good idea.
Happy cycling,

How do I adjust the timing chain on 2002 yamaha vstar 1100 classic? It`s popping alot and dying down when trottled.

The timing chain most likely adjusts itself( I am not certain) however a loose chain will cause an engine rattle, but is not the cause of popping and dying.
try cleaning the fuel system, new spark plugs,new air cleaner

Sounds like it may be drawing air around the intake somewhere. Let it idle and spray around carefully with wd-40 until it speeds up. This will reveal the leak.
