Question about 2001 Yamaha V Star Classic

1 Answer

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 after 5 seconds it idles with alot of backfiring. after 10 seconds move choke to middle bike wants to die out. So i left it on high choke.Then it backfires more and sounds like running on 1 cylinder. It's an 2001 with 8400miles.

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

    To confirm what Greg said, put a set of new plugs in it and see how it runs. Ity should run better

V star 1100 custom needs choke half open to not miss at high end


Hi, Anonymous 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.

Not getting any power unless choke is on


Only running good with the choke on is an indicator that the bike is normally running too lean. The fact that it runs good with the choke on at least tells me it is getting fuel to the carb(s). Therefore it seems probable that there is clogging in the carburetor jets or there is a big air leak between the engine and carb(s).

Primer bulb will not prime


Hello Tony Galvan, I had to replace the fuel lines to keep from sucking air when I pressed on the primer bulb. Also, I took the carburetor apart and found the gasket was good by holding it up to the sunlight, no light came through indicating holes in the gasket. Then I took a magnifying glass and looked at the bottom half of the carburetor and noticed that a soft film of what looks like lint from a dryer had accumulated on a screen mesh type of filter. Once I cleaned the debris away, the weed wacker started every time. I pulled with a full choke and partially wants to start. Then moved the choke to half choke and pressed on the throttle fully and pulled, it started! But you must at least hold the throttle close to full until 10 seconds for the engine to warm up. Then move the choke to idle. Hope this helps.

My JCB 5.5hp mower starts then chugs and stalls after about 10 seconds. I do try to adjust the choke but to no avail. Can anybody advise please


The carburetor might be dirty. I would clean the carburetor and replace diaphragm if your carb has one. Sounds like the engine is not getting enough gas to stay running. Hope this helps!

You need to let the bike idle on choke for about 5-10 minutes before taking the choke off to ride it.

Just started bike for the first time of the season...will only run while choked...if i try to throttle up it dies...06 vstar classic 3467 miles....is it the carbs needing rebuilt...if so is it a easy...


How old is the gas? Did you use fuel stabilizer? If not then add fresh fuel to tank as you use it and see if this clears your probelm. Also I would add 2 ounces of sea foam to each gallon of gas to help clean out system from old fuel.

Vstar 1100 idling rough and backfiring letting off the throttle


It sounds to me that your carbs might be a little gunked up - you mentioned the gas may have been old, so it's possible that the smaller (idle) jets are slightly plugged up. Fresh fuel might do the trick and/or you could try using a fuel system cleaner and water remover. This problem might 'solve itself' with a little time.

As far as the backfire - this might be either from the carb issue or it could be related to that rattle you mentioned - you could have a loose connection at or near the head - this can **** air and cause a backfire.

I hope this helped!
