It sounds as if you are experiencing 'vapour lock'.

You could try re-routing the fuel lines away from heat sources (probably not practical on a bike!) or try insulating them.

Google 'fuel vapour lock' for lots more info and suggestions.

Hope this helps!

Runs ok for about 5 hours then stops and y cant make it stars again until the next day

that must be that new "take a friggin break" module. seriously, after 5 hours of run time, is that run for 5 hours with no stop and then try to restart or is it normal use for 5 hours with several start and stops during that 5 hours? like for refueling?

I have a 2008 v-star custom 650, when i just turn on the key theirs a click noise jusr under the front side of the tank, what is that other then that it rund and rides great.

Pretty sure your bike has a fuel pump to assist getting fuel to carbs.....very typical to hear the pump click a few times to refill carbs prior to startup....once the carbs fill it stops till the carbs use some fuel......actual the fuel pump is clicking away as needed when the bike is just can no longer hear it over the engine noise.

When the engine is hot and you shot the the engine off and then you start it up again I am having hard time start it up.

If I recall correctly this bike has C.D.I. but down on the crank are two pick up coils.If this is the bike I'm thinking of these coils are bad for breaking inside.When you cold start the break is together but when they get warm the break expands apart and you have trouble restarting.Does one of the pistons cut out when you are riding along? If yes this is most likely the problem

My bike is a 2001 1100 v star that seems to be eating batteries all of a sudden. I was on a ride 2 moths ago and the bike started skipping under a load and when I stopped to check it out it shut off and...

My initial thought is you haved a faulty voltage regulator. You should be charging at about 15 volts, but when your battery gets charged, the voltage regulator should turn the charge system off.

Your battery is hot ... you are over charging.

Im sorry, I dont know where your regulator is located.

I hoped you find some value in this comment.

Where is the battery location for my 2007 vstar 1100. and how often do i need to charge it.

Battery is under the seat. Buy a battery tender and keep it hooked up when not riding in the winter. If you are in an area of the country where you can ride year round then a battery tender is not necessary. Battery will probably last 3+ years if properly maintained. I owned a 2000 V-Star 1100 Classic and it was a fine bike.

Leakin oil out of rear on my 07' v-star 1100 custom

Once your bike and the oil warms up crevasses can become more leak prone and oil becomes less dense making it easier for it to find its way through open spots. I would get the bike warm and then with the bike still running do a close up inspection to search for the trouble spot. Hopefully its just a top end gasket which has usually been the case with me.
