Question about 2005 Yamaha V Star 1100 Classic

1 Answer

My 2005 Yamaha v star 1100 classic had after market Cobra pipes on it when I bought it. I took it in to have it tuned up because of a lot of backfire while in operation. They said the carb kit was in backwards and also changed the spark plugs. The bike only had 2,000 miles on it when purchased and it now has 2,600 miles. I still have a lot of backfire when letting off the gas and when I start the bike. I can also get some backfire if riding at a slower steady speed in town. I only get 30 mpg in town and 36 mpg out on the highway. I took it to another mechanic and he said it was running just fine and that was normal for a v-twin 1100 with after market pipes. Do you agree?

    Has anything been done to supply more air on the intake side like a K&N filter?

    Neither mechanic has said anything about the air filter and I have not touched the air filter.

I do not agree your bike should run better then it sounds like it is. Just throwing on a set of pipes and a carb kit is not always all that needs done. I ask about the air filter because it seems your motor is getting to much gas and not enough air. The thing I would do next is to get a higher flow of air on the intake side by going to a high flow air filter. A quick check to see if this will help is to temporarily remove the air filter and test ride the bike. If it runs better without the filter this tells you a high flow filter will help. Your bike may need more work than this to get it right on. The other thing you could have done is get someone to jet in the carb to cut down the fuel flow and get the fuel air ratio right on.

It is not essential but the static timing may need to be advanced slightly to compensate for the different back pressure.
