Question about 2003 Yamaha V Star 1100 Custom
SOURCE: My 2003 Vstar 1100 custom
It has a sticky float valve in the carb, you could try "tapping" the carb and it may free the float off ,dont goon hitting it to hard just tapping it should free it off.
If it wont free off ,then take apart carb and clean then float valves.------------Fuel spewing out of the nozzle means over flow .The needle and seat in the carburetor are not sealing properly. The needle is either worn or there is some trash keeping them from sealing. You'll have to remove the float bowl and either clean it out or replace the needle. ------------ The float needle is not shutting fuel off within the bowl.It is full of fuel you can lightly tap on the bowl of carb an that may make it stop .What has happend is that the bike sitting for 4 days have blocked the carn bowl, bit low. You may need to run a little fuel treatment through it or sea foam( sea foam is a carb cleaner spark, available at local auto parts store, you can spark the seafown on carb holes and add seafoam to the fuel too) 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.When the fuel gets old it starts to develop a tarnish on that nice pionty valve and then it won't stop gas overflows.Just prevent to much into the motor try some fuel treatment and run it, it may fix it self .Also get the carb and jets cleaned. By taking carb apart. This will help, to stop such problems in future.--------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.
