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.

SOURCE: bike will not idle witout having choke on a bit

I have a supermagna and used fuel stablizer once and it wasnt fit it gummed my carbs up,ive cleaned mine often and it isnt rocket science,remove the tank airbox assembly,loosen up the boot flanges that hook the carbs to the motor(ones on carb)then remove the carbs,then the cables,choke and throttle,do not remove carbs from assembly(leave all 4 together)remove the bottoms and tops of a carb,removefloat and jet,then remove all the brass jets and clean them so you can see through holes,,blow out all the holes in carbs,and reasemble,works for me every time,about two hours to do,good luck

SOURCE: vstar 1100 yamaha will not idle, only runs with full choke

You will most likely find that your Air Cleaner element is blocked & possibly may have sucked up some leaves reducing air flow.

SOURCE: last time I STARTED MY VSTAR 1100 I CHOKED IT FOR

Sounds like your flooding it out with the choke out. Try the next time you go to start the bike when it's cold with the choke out and when it starts push the choke all the way in and keep it running with the throtle. If it runs better after doing this then your flooding it on start up. Use 1/2 choke to start cold and see what it does. Good Luck

Vstar carb


There is no spring, the cable should close the choke..if the cable is bending instead of closing the choke, then the choke must be sticking...it should close very easy. I would try just cleaning it with some carb/choke cleaner...maybe some wd-40

2004 Vstar 650 only runs with full choke, dies with throttle or pushing in the choke, I plan on changing the fuel filter tomorrow. I also found a small ball bearing in the tank, should that be there?


Hi, Anonymous not sure about the ball bearing talk to your dealer and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel cap or fuel tank is not venting properly.
2. Fuel filter clogged.
3. Fuel line pinched or kinked.
4. Float needle and seat sticking.
5. Float level too low.
6. Carburetor bowl vent line clogged/blocked/pinched.
7. Idle adjusting screw set too low.
8. Air/fuel mixture screw set too lean.
9. Idle port, transfer ports, slow air jet clogged.
10. Slow fuel jet clogged.
11. Faulty fuel pump.

Engine starts with choke out but if you try to give any throttle or push the choke in the engine shuts off. It will restart with the choke out but same senario every time.

Hello please advice as to why th ebike will just idle and with choke on full but just off if choke is off or acceleratoer is turned on high i have 2004 vstar 1100 with only 420kms


sounds like the carbs are gummed up since its a low milage bike. either open the carbs and clean them or use a fuel system cleaner and hope for the best.

Last time I STARTED MY VSTAR 1100 I CHOKED IT FOR 10 SECONDS ON HIGH THEN MOVED TO MEDIUM CHOKE FOR 4 THEN TOOK OFF AT NO CHOKE. 2 WEEKS LATER. I started up bike Choke on high bike barely wanted to idle...


Sounds like your flooding it out with the choke out. Try the next time you go to start the bike when it's cold with the choke out and when it starts push the choke all the way in and keep it running with the throtle. If it runs better after doing this then your flooding it on start up. Use 1/2 choke to start cold and see what it does. Good Luck

I have a 2004 Yamaha Vstar 1100 that stalls when I take the choke completely off. It will run on 1/3 choke, but back fires terribly. I have replaced both spark plugs, the battery and put a fuel additive in...


Dawn it is running lean if it will run on 1/3 choke when you choke it like that it actually restricts the air flow into the carburetor my suggestion would be to remove the carburetor and clean it real good and try that first before going anywhere else
