Question about Yamaha V Star 1100 Classic Motorcycles
You most likely need to flush the fuel system,or clean the carb.You could try adding some octane boost,maybe even dry gas then try,but it most likely won't work.Just a cheap attempt at getting it to start.If it did work,you could easily get through the rest but I wouldn't try it.With ethanol in gas nowadays,it adds to the ease of which gas junks out.Having sat around for a year,the gas is most likely bad.You probably will need to clean the carb as well as flush the gas system.I would get a new fuel filter too.You needed to start it perhaps every couple of weeks for about 5 minutes at a time.Also,I list all possible solutions and likely results because I like to be thorough and just tell you some things which may work,if the bike was sitting for much less time.Are you capable of doing the repair,or did you just want an opinion before spending big $?Just curious.If you have any questions or need more help,just comment here and I will get an autolink to your post and reply ASAP.I really encourage responses so I can follow up properly as I know where you stand and asking someone else restarts all the explaining because we cannot see other 'Expert's' responses.Good luck,Greg
