I agree with yadayada. Sounds like a dirty carb to me. You can try running some carb/ injection cleaner thrue it.

    Were the carb's balanced?

  • George Meade Sep 13, 2017

    I'm not sure if it was done when I got home it stalled when I downshift to 1st gear and she wouldn't start after but 3 hours later started great

    The next time the engine stalls and won't restart check to see if you have spark you may have an ignition problem than not carburetor problem

  • George Meade Sep 13, 2017

    You think that could be it cause it started after sitting for a couple hours

  • yadayada

    If it is a loss of spark I would replace the crankshaft pickup coil also known as the crankshaft position sensor first It is the cheapest part

  • George Meade Sep 13, 2017

    Cool I will try that next time it happens thanks so much will update you on this later

  • yadayada
    yadayada Sep 14, 2017

    you're very welcome I hope that my idea works and it fixes the problem.

  • George Meade Sep 15, 2017

    Well I tried my bike and it stalled again when I downshift to 1st gear and this time I had changed the plugs and I had one to try and to no avail no spark

  • yadayada
    yadayada Sep 15, 2017

    I don't quite understand why you would change the spark plugs trying to cure no spark spark plugs have nothing to do with the spark the only thing that creates spark is the ignition pickup on the crankshaft and the ignition module

  • George Meade Sep 15, 2017

    Only reason was to have a plug and it was only 10 bucks for a set lol but now I have extra set

May be possible that clutch is disengaging when shifting to first and/or drive not fully switched into first gear. Your 1st gear light may be lit, but actually isnt in a ready state.

My 1999 Yamha Vstar 650 Classic will not go into 5th gear, or does it only have 4?


Hi, Blackhawks70 it is a 5 speed and you should be able to shift into 5th gear with the engine off by rocking the bike back and forth for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your problem.
