Ebay is still the best place to find things such as wheels for motorcycles. You can get one from a Yamaha dealer, but it will cost big bucks.

Hope this helps.

Carb diagram


Here's an exploded view of the carb:

http://www.bikebandit.com/houseofmotorcycles/2005-yamaha-road-star-spoke-wheels-xv17at-carburetor/o/m145401sch301709

It doesn't really show the fuel line (item #31 is a drain line, to drain float bowl when item #6 is loosened)

The fuel line needs to connect somewhere around the float bowl.

Then there's this view:

http://www.bikebandit.com/houseofmotorcycles/2005-yamaha-road-star-spoke-wheels-xv17at-intake/o/m145401sch301708

It shows the fuel pipe (item #31) going into the back side of the card (intake manifold side)

Tubeless?


Look at the hole where the air would go into the tire., and at the rim itself. Although I never heard of a tubeless bicycles tire, except for the solid rubber tired ones, there may be some of the racing bikes or VERY expensive models that do not have tubes. If your rim has a plain hole, it should be using a tube inside the tire, same as a wheel barrow. If there is a valve stem with a core mounted in the hole, not connected to a tube, it is tubeless. Most bicycles rims also are not air tight, because of the holes in the rim for the spokes. This means there are about 30 - 40 holes beside the hole for the valve stem of the tube. Those holes have the nut of the spoke in them, and are usually covered with a wide "rubber band" to keep the tube from being punctured by the spokes.
Be blessed.

Hi Anonymous, and the usual suspects are:
1. Improperly loaded motorcycle. Non standard equipment on the front end such asheavy radio receivers, extra lightning equipment or luggage tends to cause unstable handling.
2. Incorrect air suspension pressure.
3. Damaged tire(s) or improper front-rear tire combination
4. Irregular or peaked front tire tread wear.
5. Incorrect tire pressure.
6. Shock absorber not functioning normally.
7. Loose wheel axle nuts.
8. Excessive wheel hub bearing play.
9. Improper vehicle alignment.
10.Steering head bearings improperly adjusted.
11. Tire and wheel unbalanced.
12. Rims and tires out of round or eccentric with hub.
13. Rims and tires out-of-true sideways.
14. Shock absorber improperly adjusted.
15. Worn engine stabilizer links.
16. Damaged rear engine isolation mounts.
17. Swing arm pivot shaft nut improperly tightened or assembled.
Good luck and have nice day

At 30 MPH I have a wobble in my 2010 ultra classic


1. jack up the front and rear tire off of the ground one at a time and turn the tires while looking head on to the tire; the tire sidewall should be rotating parallel as the rim. If the sidwall is moving side to side, the belt is twisted in the tire and the tire needs to be replaced.

2. If it is a spoked rim do the same test as above but see if the rim runs straight and if it does not the rim needs to be trued by a shop.

3. If the rim is of the solid spoke type (approx 3-5 large spokes), test like #1 above. If it does not run true when rotated, the rim may be bent, the bearings bad, or the wheel could be lose.

I just god a new tire, tube, rim and spokes. Except i dont know how to install the spokes! How do i install spokes through the holes and to the rim? What is the correct order to put them in? What direction...


Thank you for the inquiry.
This is one of those projects in life that best requires special tools (Spoke Jig) and a lot of patience. I also recommend a couple of good quality spoke wrenches. The one that comes with your tool kit usually is for general emergency spoke tightening and minimal maintenance. Even at the shops there is not to many people that know how to do this well. It's time consuming and shop labor is expensive.
That being said here goes:
To get started you will need to know a couple of things:
  1. Spoke lacing pattern
  2. Rear sprocket/hub alignment position. (Chain must run true from front primary sprocket) this applies only if this is a rear wheel.
I've posted a link to some helpful pictures of wheel lacing on various bikes to give you a few tips and pointers. http://www.rcycle.com/wheellacing.html
Look at the spoke pattern on your other wheel to determine the direction to push the spokes through and determine the spacing pattern for the short or long spokes.
1) Lay the hub flat on a bench and install the spokes loosely in correct pattern. 2) Lay the rim over the spokes and push them through. Spoke direction corresponds to the receiving angle on the rim. Important to get started correctly than alternate. 3) Thumb tighten a couple of the nuts/ferrels loosely to hold rim in position. 4) Tighten nuts according to get the hub centered as best as possible (just to temporarily hold) 5) You can build a fixture with a couple of 2 x 4s as shown in the illustration or carefully clamp the bikes axel in a vice, not to damage the threads or pinch the axel nut.Horizontal position. 6) You will need to clamp a coat hanger or a heavy piece of wire to something solidly fixed to act as a reference guide. 7) Tighten spokes first for correct up/down centering then for left/right centering. 8) UP and Down: Position your gauge wire close to the top/front of the rim and rotate. Finger tighten and loosen the spoke nuts until you get the wheel running true for up/down motion. Keep going around and redoing until you get it as perfect as you can finger tight only. 9) Move you wire gauge to the side of the rim and repeat process. The front rim has a disc brake position to align for (not to critical) and the rear rim has a critical sprocket position to maintain. You will have to measure the sprocket offset to get it correct. Chain must run true. 10) Spin the rim on the axel for reference and Keep going around and tightening and loosening the spokes until you get the side alignment running true. May take a while and many spins. 11) Once you get the rim running true for both wobble and run out you are ready to slowly start tightening the spoke nuts with your spoke wrench's. Take you time and keep tightening in tiny amounts until you get tight and true. Tap the spokes as you go and listen for tension. 12) When you tap if you get a dull thunk - it's a little loose. If you get a ringing musical string sound you know you are tight and/or close depending on the amount of ring. Take your time.
Before you mount the tire be sure you mount the rim on the bike and run the axel in place to final check for front brake rotor alignment or real sprocket alignment. You may have to adjust.
I have always wrapped duct tape in the V-slot to hold the nuts and prevent spokes from coming up and puncturing the tube. Go around several times. Just maintain the groove so you can still have room to place the tire bead in to stretch for mounting.
Best wishes and good luck from a fellow biker/racer.

Broken spokes on rear wheel


It is not that hard to replace a few broken shokes. All you have to do is take the rim off the bike and take the tire off of the rim. Install the new spokes and tighted them to the specs and put everything back on the bike and take it for a ride. After riding, I would check the spokes and retight to make sure there ready for your next ride.
