Question about Yamaha V Star Classic Motorcycles
You need to remove the carburators from the bike, disassemble them, clean them and set the float height. It is not something that most people are familiar with. If you plan on doing the repair yourself, I would recommend getting a service manual for your bike. Haynes and Chilton make good choices with fairly easy to follow directions. Mostly it is removing the gas tank, seperating the carbs from the air cleaner, and working the carbs out from the motor. Disassembly of the carbs is fairly easy once you do it a few times. You should really have someone that can synchronize the carbs once they are cleaned and put back on. It should be done by someone who can set the float heights, and synchronize them when they are done. Carburator rebuild kits may or may not be needed, only looking at the float needles will let you know what you need. I usually recommend kits to all my customers as this is usually the proper repair.
