Backfires badly when downshifting or just letting off the throttle v-star 1100


Most people have this problem after changing the exhaust system. In your case you have to unbolt the exhaust system just to change the oil filter during an oil change. There is an oil filter relocation kit available for around $400 that allows you to both use a spin on filter and not have to unbolt the exhaust system every time you change the oil. The cause of your problem is air leaking past the exhaust o-rings in the head. Buy new exhaust o-ring gaskets for the head and your problem should be solved. If there is a sealing pipe gasket going from the head pipe to the muffler you may have to replace that too. The cause of your problem was probably an oil change where the mechanic replaced the oil filter but did not bother to replace the exhaust o-ring gaskets. Happy riding.

Have a 2004 yamaha classic changed to K& D pipes ran fine then 2 years ago after an oil change it started backfiring on deceleration and has gotten worse...have spent over 7 hundred dollars and no one...


Well - the front pipe has to be removed to change the oil filter on this bike, so it's very likely that when reinstalled the mechanic did not get it back in place correctly. Couple that with the likelyhood that he re-used the old exhaust gasket and this is your most likely cause for the backfire - a simple exhaust leak. Other typical causes for exhaust backfires are insufficient valve clearance, burnt valves or incorrectly adjusted carbs. In my experience the most common cause for exhaust backfire is a leak in the exhaust circuit which can draw in fresh air during decelleration.

Where does the oil come out of a 2004 Yamaha 1100 VStar Classic


Oil drain plug is located near the bottom of the engine, left side toward the front. The oil filter element is located on the right side of the engine under the cover toward the front. Changing the oil filter usually requires removal of the front exhaust pipe. There is an aftermarket filter relocation kit that replaces the filter element with a spin on filter that mounts on the front of the bike.

Look between the exhaust pipes for a bump with a bolt head, that should be your oil filter housing which you can unbolt.

Change oil in 2004 Yamaha V Star 1100 Classic, procedure?


i think the oil filter is at the front behind a round finned cover, if you find the drain plug it should be right above it, it shoud tell you how much oil it takes right next to the filler
