if the bike is fuel injected- the pump is in the fuel tank.. if the bike has carburetors- there is normally no fuel pump- the fuel gravity feeds from the tank thru the petcock valve into the carbs

I have a 2002 yamaha vstar classic that had been sitting up for awhile. i changed the plugs fresh fuel and cleaned the carbs. when it sits on the kickstand it spits and sputters but when i stand it up it...

Thank you for the inquiry.
This sounds like the classic problem we all have after storing our bikes all winter. The gas tends to shellac up and leave residue in the carburetor, jets, sediment bowls, and filters. Suggest draining your gas (use it for your lawnmower) and replacing with fresh higher octane premium gas. There are some fuel additives that clean quite. Try one of those. Change your fuel filter. You may also have to remove the carburetors sediment bowls and clean the shellac out of the pilot jet, normally not necessary. If you haven't had a tune up for a while that would also be a good idea.
Happy cycling,

Ihave a single cylender 178 china yanmar diesel

these engines have a mechanical injector and when water gets in them the best way to say this has larger particals then the diesel the best way is to remove the injector and the fuel lines and spray a carb cleaner in then this will dissipate the water place the injector in a pan and heat up on a stove not to get to hot this will dry out the injector then when this is done spray wd-40 in where the fuel tube supplies the fuel do not touch the tip or bump or drop striking the tip that goes in the engine you will have to replace it then reinstall all the removed parts keep the line lose at the injector crank the engine till fuel starts flowing do not hole the ling with a finger you can blow a hole and inject fuel in to your blood these pumps build a massive pressure when lines held .
when the fuel flows start to tighten the line what your doing is purging the air out as well as any water. when you get the lines to where their is a dropping of fuel the engine should start to run it will be ruff and smoke with a wrench loosen then tighten line a couple times wile it is running then snug the line the fuel in the injector will push what rest of the air out and it will smooth out . DO NOT USE STARTING FLUID ON THESE ENGINES you can crack the case they cant take the stress. i hope this helps

1100 yamaha 2003 vstar classic gas tank remove

1) Make sure your fuel petcock is closed, then detach the gas line coming off it (left underside of tank)
2) Remove the back seat (single acorn nut on rear fender)
3) Remove the front seat (two allen bolts at the back of seat)
4) There are two metric 12mm bolts under the front seat that hold the tank down. Remove them. The tank should be sitting loose on bike, but connected by some wires
5) Disconnect the white wiring harness under the bike. Tank is now totally free to remove.
6) Pull tank up and back at the same time, it will slide off the two rubber mounts at the front.

My 2005 vstar 1100 wont start

Im guessing here this is the first startup since garaging over winter months. Check your carb jets, if clean.........drain the gas and put fresh gas in its place.
