Question about 2003 Yamaha V Star 1100 Classic
My Vstar 1100 classic sputters,bogs and pops when I hit the throttle. I changed the fuel filter and spark plugs. During the test drive , I noticed that the carb is shooting fuel out the overflow when the key is on. What do I need to do to fix this?? I'm thinking the float is stuck or trash in the Jets. Any advice would be apreciated !!!!!!!
I think you are pretty much onto it.It is some kind of fuel metering issue.You also sound like you have good engine knowledge.I would definitely start with the float and fuel flow to the engine.You need to avoid driving this around right now too since there is not enough gas getting to the engine.I have seen lean mixtures blow holes into/out of pistons many times,because leaner is hotter.Good luck and ride on!

Sounds like you need to reset the fuel intake. There should be a screw ont he carb that will allow the fuel intake to be adjusted. If it's coming out the overflow, either you needle and seat needs replaced and is allowing too much fuel into the carb - thus is it "flooding" itself. (may be sticking as well)
Please let me know if you need further assistance.
