Is the bike backfiring from the exhaust or the carburetor? Does the bike have stock or aftermarket exhaust?

Backfiring is a symptom of being too lean, not too rich. Clean your jets, synch the carbs and adjust the PMS.

Yamaha vstar 1100 back fireing

Re-jetting the carbs may be needed.
Imbalance of air/gas ratio will cause backfiring among many other things. :)

Other considerations:
Have the timing and valves set.

After market pipes will also increase the Poping sound when you let off the throttle. (not really backfiring but annoying)
Removing and plugging the AIS system will stop most of this.

Good luck!
Hope this helps.

I have a Yamaha V star 1100 (2002). Do I adjust the float levels so that the fuel tube mark is level with the mark on the bowl. The brand new book I have has Virago carbs in it...useless. Can't find this...

Engine backfires, quite a lot, at lower throttle and idle

you need to either clean your carbs or you have a valve out of adjustment mine was doing same thing because of dirts carbs hope that sheds a little light on subject

Engine backfire

try pulling the choke out a little and see if that doesn't help.  If it does that is a sign that you are running too lean and need the jets in the carb increased or just the air mixture screw adjusted.  If the coke test doesn't help, please tell me more about how and when it acts up. Like after the motor is warmed up does the backfiring quit?
