One of the carbs has a stuck float or needle is stuck. some times you can rap the carbs on the bottom with a hammer handle to free up the stuck float. Try raping each carb on its bowl to unstick it. The fuel line is a over flow from the carbs for just this cause. Or you did not get a clamp on just right.

Took 2002 V-Star Classic 650 out of storage, it


well it sounds like the float needle is not shutting fuel off whin the bowl is full of fuel you can lightly tap on the bowl of carb an that may make it stop what has happend is the bike has sat you may need to run a little fuel treatment through it or sea foam and that may clean the end of the needle off the way it works when the bowl of the carb fills with gas the float raises a needle valve into a brass seat and stops fuel flow into the carb fuel get old and starts to develop a tarnish on that nice pionty valve an then it won't stop gas the overflows just prevent to much into the motor try some fuel treatment and run it it may fix it self just from fresh gas an being driven worst case is having to clean your carbs still not to bad hope that get you fixed up

Sounds like it may be drawing air around the intake somewhere. Let it idle and spray around carefully with wd-40 until it speeds up. This will reveal the leak.

The excess fuel is caused by the float levels being out of adjustment. Fix the floats and the dead spot may disappear. If not, pull the slides and then move the jet needle clip down one notch. With due respect, I would put the bike carbs back to stock. :)

My v-star 1100 has not been run in over a year. fuel leaks when trying to start. Whats wrong?


This sounds to me like a carb float being stuck open. Turn off the gas and drain the offending carb(s). Next, turn the gas back on and sharply tap the float bowl with the plastic handle of a screwdriver as the fuel bowl refills. The goal here is to vibrate the float to free it up. If doing this process a couple of times does not free the float I would remove the carb(s) and clean with a spray carb cleaner. Clean the air filter then re-mount carb(s). Next, Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, ( not all bikes have a water trap bowl ). Install an inline fuel filter.
