Question about 2000 Yamaha V Star 1100 Classic

1 Answer

My V Star won't start. Just cranks and cranks and won't fire. I had thought I had just flooded it but it has been a few days since the start failure and I even tried with a jump from my car. I read that it is possible that the bike could crank over with no ignition and that jumping or recharging the battery would help. No dice.

I had the same problem change your petrol filter. Then remove the air filter and the petrol hose to your carb. place a contianer under the hose and try to start if there is no fuel coming out then the only thing it could be is the fuel pump good luck

Well...... Could be one out of a dozen things. You say "it runs for a few days". Were you having other issues? Rough running previous backfiring, sluggish?

My yamaha v-star classic 650 wiil not start after i stop riding when it sit for a few hours. it turns over but will not crank


Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty.
2. Fuel supply valve/petcock turned off.
3. Fouled spark plugs.
4. Engine flooded as a result of overuse of the enricher.
5. Vacuum hose to the fuel supply valve/petcock disconnected, broken, cracked, or pinched.
6. Fuel valve/petcock or filter clogged.
7. Fuel line to carburetor or throttle body pinched or kinked.
8. Carburetor float stuck.
9. Fuel injectors clogged.
10. Severely discharged or damaged battery, you need 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
11. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
12. Loose or corroded wire connection at the coil, battery or plug between ignition sensor and CDI box.
Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting check for leakage in the dark, cable connections loose, or connected to the wrong cylinders.
13. Ignition timing incorrect due to a faulty MAP, CKP, O2, TPS, sensors.
14. Faulty neutral, clutch lever, or kickstand safety switch.
15. Faulty fuel pump or fuse or relay.
16. Faulty CDI box.
17. A stuck bent or burnt valve.
18. Tip over sensor needs a reset.
19. Check for engine trouble codes.

I jumped car off it crunk on its own fora day,then batt went dead again,this time it won't jump off. It wants to crank but won't turn over.


not sure what you said but.
seems the battery is discharging,? 12.6v is fully charged,
own a voltmeter?
try a good loaned battery , does it start the car,?
i think you meant?
i can jumper cable start my car at any time. (off another running car)
but after running my car, the battery discharges and it will not crank at all. right?
this means ,the charging system on your car is bad.
if the starter cranks great, then the engine is flooded or is in great need of a tune up (sparkplugs etc)
if flooded try the super secret in the op guide, crank with throttle wide open , this magic trick cuts all fuel injection allowing the flooding
to purge away, and eventual starting.
my guess 2 is the car wont start, so you crank the battery flat
you jumper start it and it runs. (luck)
then day 2, same deal cranks ok but wont start.. ever tune up the engine?

Front cylinder not firing on my 2000 yamaha v star classic 1100


Sounds like its the float in the front carb is sticking,causing it to flood the front cylinder with too much fuel. Need to clean carbs,reset float levels,and synch them. Running it like this will wash the oil out of the cylinder,causing it to lose compression.
