2007 FX Waverunner 1100, turning left the engine dies for no reason. It will restart but you must hold the idle high or it will die. Holding full throttle the engine will speed up and slow by 1000 RPM after driving across the lake for 10 minutes. It was ok the first 10 minutes.

First, I'd check the routing on your throttle cable. make sure that at left and right turn, it has slack and no tight spots. Assuming your fuel stystem is clean, that pretty much leaves a ground/short problem somewhere. The fact that it happens at left turn tells me it's in the wiring that routes through the controls- perhaps the kill switch wiring. Something somewhere has rubbed the insulation off the wiring, and it's being moved when you turn left, so it shorts against metal. This will be the same metal point that rubbed it raw.
A. Check the throttle cable routing. Move the bars back and forth, and watch for a tight spot.
B. Check your wirinig harness from the bars to the main wiring harness, and look for signs of rubbing or wear.

Why does my 2007 1100 V-star die when I put it in gear?


Hi Don does the bike jump forward as of the clutch wasn't working? If so the clutch is stuck. To fix put thd bike in high gear and hold in the clutch push the bike back and forward with the help of a friend until it frees up. If this is not the problem check the side stand switch it might be faulty. If you have a doubt about the switch join the two wires together temporary to test. Regards Jim...

Got my 2009 Yamaha FX sho waverunner under water, drained the water from the hull and tried to start it. Turned over 5 or 6 times and stopped. Pulled the air filter out and of course had water in it....


remove all sparkplugs and hold full throttle and crank over several times to get water out of cylinders ! have a jump pack ready as battery will die ! use carb cleaner on the plugs each time you try to run after this , hope this has only just happened as internal damage might already started ! if all ok check the engine oil also as water normally gets in after this problem ! if oil is milky then change oil several times , run for 15min on hose each change until oil normal colour ! then you must take for a run for an hour to help dry it out !

At idle left cyl misfires. Remove right plug wire at idle and bike dies. hold idle up and remove right plug wire and bike stays running. runs good on the road as long as you are in 2nd gear. Has good fire...


The two carbs are not balanced to each other. Balance as follows; Start the bike then increase the idle on the left carb to a high idle. Now unplug the right cylinder and the engine will slow down some. Now slowly turn the idle down on the left carb until the engine just dies. Hook up the right plug wire then do the same proceedure for the right carb. Now both carbs are balanced. Hook up the left wire and start the engine again. The bike will be running faster than you want so now adjust the idle screws on both carbs equally to get the desired idle speed. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

I have a 1990 olds 88 royale 3.8 Just replaced the fuel pump, and both fuel filter. A week later coming to a stop the car dies. It's seems every time I approach a stop and get under 25 mph it dies....


Here are some of the causes of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

Try this, it is the common reason for this problem.
