The first thing you need to check is the air filter. Sometimes critters can get into the airbox when a bike sits for awhile. Sounds crazy, but it has happened to me. If nothing is blocking the filter, give it a quick clean since you have it out.
Next things to check:
Faulty diaphragm
Improperly adjusted fuel level
Clogged or loose main jet
Faulty fuel pump
You may not be able to check these on your own, but these are the next likely culprits.
Hope this helped

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.

Lift the back of the tank up and prop it up. Remove the chrome beauty covers, find spark plug wires and remove. Blow out with air first. Chaz Moto DC

How do I check the oil on my 2008 Yamaha 1100 V Star Classic

There is a window on the bottom of the left side (kickstand side) of the chrome cover. with the bike level, you would look into the window to see the oil level. it should be at least halfway up the window, but not all the way up.

What type and Wt.oil is recomended, and is there a dip stick available. 2003 1100 classic.

Any oil that is JASO MA certified motorcycle oil. 10w-40 for cold climate. 20w-50 for warm climate/touring. Do not use any oil that says Energy Conserving on the label . It will shorten the life of your wet clutch and transmission gears. Synthetic oils will help your bike run cooler and shift easier. I have not heard of a dipstick being available for your cycle. Always be sure to hold the bike level when checking the oil so you get an accurate reading of the level.
