20 Most Recent 2005 Yamaha V Star 1100 Classic Questions & Answers


Hi, Joseph and the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
3. 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.
4. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and module.
5. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting/leaking, spark plug cable connections loose check for spark leakage in the dark.
6. Faulty ignition coil or electronic control module.

8. Faulty CKP, CMP, or BAS sensor.
9. Faulty ignition switch.

Just a thought. is your air filter clean? A dirty filter will make it burn more fuel and cause the plugs to foul.Is your choke working properly? Both of these will foul plugs and use more fuel.
