Check the automatic choke. Look for a vacuum line or electrical wire outa place.
May I suggest a trip to your local library. Cycle repair books should be in 646 stacks of reference.

06 v-star 1100 when twisting throttle and then back to idle position it takes a while to idle back down or stays at high rpm

More than likely the carbs are plugged up(makes the no idle, popping from the intake or pipe and sometimes hard starting), and/or a vacuum line(s) Is loose/broken, and the carbs are probably out of sync (makes the high sticking idle/little to no idle). I have many article written about cleaning the carbs and fuel system. Get the carbs and fuel system cleaned out if you are not familiar with the process.

My 1100 V-star Classic idles fine. Once i ride it and it warms up it floods. You can hear the fuel pump pumping trying to keep up. It will only start with the choke on at that point.

Hi, Brtush04 and the usual suspects are:
1. Dirt or other foreign matter between float valve and its seat.
2. Float valve sticking.
3. Float valve and/or valve seat worn or damaged.
4. Float misadjusted.
5. Float cracked, leaky or damaged.
6. Excessive "PUMPING" of hand throttle grip.

My 2001 yamaha 1100 v-star custom has a hard time starting.

Hi, Ataylor42779 and the usual suspects are:
1. Spark plugs in bad condition or have an improper gap or are partially fouled.
2. Spark plug cables in bad condition.
3. Battery damaged or nearly discharged, should have 12.5 volts.
4. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
5. Throttle controls not adjusted correctly.
6. Water or dirt in the fuel system.
7. Water or dirt in the carburetor.
8. Faulty fuel pump.
9. Intake air leak.
10. Fuel tank vent hose and vapor valve plugged, or fuel line closed off, restricting fuel flow.
11. Enricher valve inoperative.
12. Engine lubricant to heavy (winter operation).
13. Ignition is not functioning properly (possible sensor failure).
14. Faulty ignition coil.
15. Valves sticking.

2001 Yamaha V star 650 will start, run for a second then dies. It seems to be getting fuel and the spark is strong. I have tried Sea foam and Berryman's Chem tool. What do I look at next?

I ran into a problem like that before and it could be the computer, they do that when it works intermittently. The part is priced up there so go over every thing else it could be first

First Time--changing the oil-want to make sure I do it right. Thanks,Harvey

o.k easy one this .First get good motorcycle oil 15/40 semi synthetic and a new oil filter first, never use car oil. Warm the engine up to get good oil flow. Remove the oil drain plug at the bottom of the engine,dont loose the seal washer. drain the oil into a container,and remove the oil filter as well. replace washer and oil plug do not over tighten,hard hand pressure only with quality spanner. fill oil filter with oil and oil `O`ring with oil to replace by tight hand pressure only no tools. Fill engine oil through oil filler cap to correct level between the two marks on the dip stick,bike must be up-right for best accuracy of oil level. There done.
