Question about 2001 Yamaha V Star 1100 Classic

1 Answer

2001 yamaha v-star 1100, with aftermarket exhaust which look like straight pipes but don't know what brand. Also has air filters under the tank right on carbs, also larger cam. i keep fouling the one plug and that same pipe sounds like it's under water while idling. Also when i let off the throttle the exhaust sounds more like a flutter. Took it in to a shop and they said carbs were set fine, but i'm not sure.

Hi hoeygatt

Look around your bike near where the throttle cable meets the engine, when you pull the throttle, the cable pulls a quarter circle piece of metal which is connected to a spring, then connected to that should be a screw, that is the idle screw, turn it very slightly, usually clockwise to make the idle higher, and this should sort out the problem.

SOURCE: where is the oil filter on my yamaha V-star 1100

On the right side of the bike (right side when ou are sitting on it) just above the rear brake lever behind a small circular plate. remove the plate and the oil filter is inside (you will easily see it). Warning---on these bikes you have to drop the front exhaust header and right floor board in order to change the oil filter unless you install a after market oil filter relocation kit. If you plan on changing your own oil it is highly recommended to install this relocation kit.

SOURCE: Strange thigs about YAMAHA TW 125

Hi
I have been working on my carb today,the pipe from the bottom of the carb should just run down by the bottom of the swinging arm,there should be another pipe from the pipe on the left side of the carb just above the fuel intake which also runs down to the swinging arm and connect to nothing.
Cheers

have you checked for vaccuum leaks at the intake manifold? you can check by pouring water over the gasket area when/ if you get it running!

Do you have to drop the exhaust to change the oil filter on a 2000 yamaha 1100 v-star


Yes, unless you want to spend $250 on a Baron oil filter relocation kit. http://www.motoshop.net/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=BA264000&Category_Code=BARONS&Store_Code=AIM Or $275 on a Jardine oil filter relocation kit. http://www.cruisercustomizing.com/detail.cfm?Category_ID=108&manufacturer_ID=7&product_ID=6715&sblid_name=Jardine_Chrome_Oil_Filter_Relocation_Kit___ V_Star_______ If you choose to stay with the stock set up, consider keeping new exhaust gaskets handy in case you start to experience popping and backfiring caused by leaking exhaust gaskets on the head pipes.

Where does the oil come out of a 2004 Yamaha 1100 VStar Classic


Oil drain plug is located near the bottom of the engine, left side toward the front. The oil filter element is located on the right side of the engine under the cover toward the front. Changing the oil filter usually requires removal of the front exhaust pipe. There is an aftermarket filter relocation kit that replaces the filter element with a spin on filter that mounts on the front of the bike.

Backfire


is it a straight thru exhaust, or is it just a head pipe with nothing attached? If it's just a head pipe, you need to get some sort of muffler on it or you'll burn your valves out from a lean condition. The backfire is due to the vaccum fed carbs that yamaha runs. They work wonderfully, but under heavy deceleration, the vaccum still feeds the bowl, and it builds up excess fuel, which eventually burns off as a backfire. If it were fuel injected, you could have the fuel map adjusted to lean it out under deceleration.

I have a 99 1100 v star how do i chang my filter


Look between the exhaust pipes for a bump with a bolt head, that should be your oil filter housing which you can unbolt.

Bike runs great but backfires had jets done


hi,might be able to help,i am hoping that the backfire is on the off throttle,if it is then is quite easy,check the exhaust system for air leaks,air gets sucked into the system through leaks,mixes with the hot exhaust gasses,leans out the mix inside the pipe then bang..1 backfire,the other cause could be particularly if you are running an aftermarket exhaust is that the system is running to lean and needs to be rejetted most times though it is air getting into the exhaust through badly fitting seals and gaskets..hope this helps...cheers ian

Change oil in 2004 Yamaha V Star 1100 Classic, procedure?


i think the oil filter is at the front behind a round finned cover, if you find the drain plug it should be right above it, it shoud tell you how much oil it takes right next to the filler

Oil filter


Hi .... Have a look at the front of the righthand engine casing, it's there. You have to take off the exhaust to get to it, allegedly a 1 1/2 job inc taking off the exhaust. There is an aftermarket kit for relocating the air filter, takes only 20 mins all in then from start to finish.
