Question about Yamaha V Star Classic 650 Motorcycles
There is a rubber line that comes from near the fuel shut-off valve and terminates at a connector attached to one of the cylinders, located behind the air filter. The end of the hose, where it attached to this connector, is open. No plug and I do not see any other hose that could have come loose. When the ignition is turned on, fuel begins to stream out of this open-ended hose. Anyone know what's up with this? Have I lost a hose or a terminating plug somehow?

under the left side of the gas tank you will see i black knob/screw at the end of what looks like a hose. the knob faces the rear of bike. that adjusts the idle. its real easy to find and the only adjustment you can make to the carbs.

SOURCE: Need to get oil
First of all, I want to compliment you on your bike! That V-Star is in so many ways, one of the best all around bikes....Very durable engines, user friendly, comfortable and DEPENDABLE, not to mention one the best value to dollar ratio on the market, right along next to the Suzuki Boulevard....Not to get off subject but I enjoy these bikes thoroughly!
You want to make SURE that the only oil you use is a quality oil, which will have THE seal of approval stamp on the bottle that says that it meets the requirements of all the major motor corporations you want to make ABSOLUTELY sure that the ONLY oil that goes in that bike's crank case and gear box is specifically intended for use with a "MULTI-PLATE WET CLUTCH" system.....Otherwise a very bad day can be predicted. "Champion Oil" is a reputable brand and preferred thier 2-stroke raceing oil over all else when I raced 250cc class arena-cross. I have since retired from dirt bike racing to take up a much safer and peaceful profession in law enforcement....But I know Champion makes 4-stroke case oil thats compatible with wet clutches....Yama-Lube is ok too...Just make sure you see "Wet Clutch" on the bottle and it's all a matter of consistenly works best for you and preference after that.

Fuel filter is located near the fuel shutoff valve within three inches. It is inline between the shutoff valve and the fuel pump (towards tank).
The fuel circuit is: Tank/Fuel Pump/Fuel Filter/Fuel Shut-off Valve/Carbs.
You first step is to check for fuel delivery to the filter. Make sure the bike is cool and no iginition sources are nearby. Disconnect the inlet line at the filter and turn key on and crank engine (to trigger fuel pump.) Do not try and start at this time (choke off).
If fuel is adequate to the filter, check the filter by blowing through it, it should easily pass air. Replace filter if questionable.
Next reconnect the fuel lines and remove float bowl drain plugs in the back of the carbs (2 per carb). If with key on and cranking fuel pours out of these ports then you probably have clogged fuel jets. If not then the float bowl needles / pipes could be plugged with varnish from dried fuel. You can try spraying carb cleaner into the fuel inlet to clear the varnish and then retest. Careful not to spray carb cleaner on yourself (wrap straw with a rag).
If you have good fuel flow to the carbs and bowls you probably have varnish plugging the jets. You should remove the carbs and clean them thoroughly.
Hope this helps,

The oil filter is on the right side
under a cover with 3 screws in it.
Remove the covers and replace the filter
and the o-ring on the cover.
Watch which way it goes in
when removing it.
