Question about 2005 Yamaha Road Star Midnight Silverado
Hi, Rempelabe if your carburetor/exhaust is:
COUGHING is usually caused by an air leak in the intake system and will generally have the same telltale signs, a wet or damp buildup of oil/gas seepage at the intake manifold to cylinder head or carburetor to intake manifold connection and in rare instances a worn throttle plate shaft and or seals.
POPPING on deceleration is usually caused by a lean fuel condition or an air leak in the exhaust system and is generally located where black carbon soot is seen as a flashing build up from any joint connection. This condition can easily be remedied by removing and cleaning both joint pieces and reassembling with high temp silicone and torquing the exhaust clamp to the proper spec.
SPITTING is usually caused by a faulty accelerator pump and or nozzle, or the float bowl needle and seat leaking and overflowing through the main jet mixing well nozzle, or the air-fuel mixture screw is adjusted too lean.
BACKFIRING is usually caused by a sticky/tight intake valve or a timing issue, 180 degrees out or cam chain off 1or 2 teeth.

i would say its either drawing air or the carbs need setup. You have to check the breather pipes and the rubber manifolds for cracks or splits.
if carbs need setup, then its best taking it to a good garage, to have them balanced and adjusted.

To adjust the throttle position sensor, switch ignition 'on' then disconnect and reconnect the the connection at the TPS. Loosen the TPS fixing screws x2 and swivel the sensor until the rev counter reads 5000rpm.Don't switch the ignition 'off' during the procedure as this sets it back into 'normal' mode. If you can't get a proper reading then it could be the sensor is faulty. The TPS is on the left hand carb spindle.

First thing I would try is some sea foam, you can get it pretty much at any auto parts store...put it in the tank per instructions on the bottle, if the carbs are gummed/dirty... seafoam is you best hope at getting them clean without pulling them.
If sea foam doesnt work, you'll have to yank the carbs, but before you do... pull the tank, set it backwards where the seat was, get about a two foot fuel line (air line works just fine) run it ti the tank and start the bike, take a can of starting fluid (WD 40 works too but stinks when it starts to burn off afterwards) and spray around the base of the outside of the carbs where the boots connect it to the intake, if the engibe revs, you have a leak...cracked boot probably.
If no leaks are detected... then yank the carbs, pull the bowl covers and start cleaning....also, while you have them off pull the slide covers off and check the diaphrams on the needle for rips or cracks as well.
Check/clean.. put everything back together... if it still isnt running right then I have no other suggestions... certainly sounds like an air/fuel problem... if were anything else choking it wouldn't make it better.

this is just your idle adjustment. all you have to do is let the engine warm up to operating temp., then raise the idle. you may need to remove your air intake and filter to get to the adjusting screws. they are usually on the side of the carburetor, right in the center. they may be somewhere else though. some carb's have a cable mounted near the carb to adjust the idel. im not familiar with your specific model. but once you determine where the idle screw(s) are, turn them in clockwise with the engine running. go about 1/4 turn at a time until it will stay running without having to give it throttle.
