    Is there a carb cleaner that can be mixed with the fuel to help? Runs good at lower under 70.

Your carb may be gummed up or float is sticking. Also check needle and seat to make sure it is not warped. Good idea to check fuel filter and in screen fuel tank as well.

    you could use carb cleaner but wouldn' t work near as well as dismantleing and soaking in solvent for couple hours and blow air in jets and also to dry.

Gd evening. my motorcle stall @ 60 miles per hour then doesnt drop below 50 miles per hour wen riding on interstate. change fuel filter,gas. blew it out on highway it picked up normal speed for about


Well, it seems you were looking at the wrong gauge...

Speed doesn't matter, but rpms MIGHT matter. Next time this happens pay attention to the bikes behavior relative to the tach. The next thing I would do is make sure the plugs are fresh. It's a cheap shot at the fish in the barrel, but if that doesn't take care of it chances are you have a carb problem and that will need to be taken apart, cleaned, checked, and set up properly. I only recommend changing the plugs first as a proper carb job can be daunting for a novice.

Had a simuliar problem, Bike would have a total shutdown a High Temps/Low Speeds/High RPMs. Everything would reset itself after appox 2 minutes. Everything would shutdown Electric and engine.
2 Harley dealers spent 75 hours diagnosing it, dealer could not reproduce it. Last repair was to replace battery cables. Seems to have fixed it. Have ridden 15oo miles since repair. Problem reacurred once last time I rode. Again complete shutdown bike restored after 2 minutes. Did not happen again the rest of the day over 200 miles

Check for vacume leaks first. Rubber lines..gaskets to carbs ect. Also remove and blow out your fuel line to tank and change out filter. Hope this helps.:)

I have an 04 yamaha v star silverado classic cruiser with a stalling no start issue! here is what happens i recently installed new battery connections cleaned and tighten and took bike for a drive while...


It's your stator failing, these bikes are notorious for bad stators. A failing stator means the bike can't produce the electricity it needs to run, and the bike is running on the battery only. Replace the stator and make sure your battery is fully charged and you will be good to go.

Rpms speed up faster then bike does. Sounds like clutch slip.


You can adjust it by slackening the cable...unless it has hydraulic operation....Otherwise get it replaced before you do more damage..ie clutch dust and debris in the oil, so dont forget the oil and filter change too.

2002 Yamaha V-Star Classic 1100 Will not run over 70 MPH


Hi,
The first thing you need to check is the air filter. Sometimes critters can get into the airbox when a bike sits for awhile. Sounds crazy, but it has happened to me. If nothing is blocking the filter, give it a quick clean since you have it out.
Next things to check:
Faulty diaphragm
Improperly adjusted fuel level
Clogged or loose main jet
Faulty fuel pump
You may not be able to check these on your own, but these are the next likely culprits.
Hope this helped
