The fuel petcock (on/off tap) has a rubber pad that the metal plate rests on against underside of tank. This has more than likely perished and become hard and brittle. Drain remaining fuel (if any) and remove the fuel hose and remove petcock retaining bolts. Carefully remove petcock as two fuel tube filters extend into tank. Replace the rubber pad with a new one. Might be a good idea to thoroughly check for cracking on all rubber components on the bike, especially fuel hose and brake fluid lines. Cheers.

My bike hasnt been ridden for a few months, and you need to give it full choke to start and keep it going, it wont idle when the choke is depressed, It is A Vstar 650 Classic


was fuel left in the carburetors when you parked it your metering jets might be slightly clogged with varnish i dont recomend opening them yourself take it to a professional and next time you park it for an extended period of time close the fuel valve and leave the bike running until the carbs run out of gas "the bike will stop running when this happens"

If the leak is from the tank, check the gas line from the fuel petcock. If it turns out to be from the left carb, drain the bowl, it should free the float.

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 02 yamaha vstar 650 is very hard to start on cold mornings. ihave tried all kinds of things. i have to idle it up than idle it down than it will start. the chock does no good .


Sounds like your carb jets may be partially plugged, common if they are stored incorrectly, The choke circuits on these carburetors work on manifold vacuum and if you throttle the bike while trying to start it you will lose the choke affect. if they are partially plugged the only good way to fix it is to pull the carburetors and clean them. I would advise checking out www.roadstarclinic.com is a great source of information for the yamaha star line of motorcycles.

Need to remove key cylinder for vstar 650


They are tamper resistant screws which take a special tool to remove. (keeps the average theif from unbolting your ignition switch and easily hot wiring the bike) however the bolts can be drilled out to gain access to the switch and then replaced with a standard type screw upon reinstallation, the choice is yours.

I have a 650 vstar classic my gas cap causes a suction on my fuel tank that pops a dint to form in the tank. The dint pops back out when i open the cap, also it fells like it pulls to the left if you let...


Therre is a vent from the underside of the tank to atmosphere. It may be pinched or clogged. If the cap has a vent it is plugged. clean cap in carburetor cleaner.
