Question about 2003 Yamaha V Star Classic
Check your float levels. At one time Yamaha Grizzleys had a problem with the float needle plating coming off causing the floats to stick. We had to put K&L aftermarket float needles in for two years until Yamaha decided to address the problem. They still may not acknowledge it. Also check the choke mechanism carefully just in case it malfunctioning during high vacuum/acceleration conditions. If the carb uses choke plungers make sure the rubber is in good condition and the mounting nuts on the carbs are not cracked.

Its the float level or the needle valve is dirty or could be bad or sticking my 04 650 classic was doing the same thing it was the combo of the two ethenol gas will cause the rubber end on the valve to deteriate over time get ethenol treatment for your bike to keep this from happening again once you fix it the carb gaskets are high if you reuse them soak them in oil to swell them up to keep the carb from leaking
