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.

These parts are fairly reliable. Rather than buying new, you should be able to pick one up from a motorcycle breaker who will post it to you. I would expect to pay about £60-£100 tops in the UK (Depending on mileage). ANy Yamaha dealer will be happy to order you one new, but they are a hell of a price!

How do you adjust the high speed, low speed jets on a 2002 Yamaha Road Star carburator.

The jets are not adjustable. Well - the pilot jet is adjustable a little by turning the air screw, but this is for fine tuning, not for correcting an incorrectly sized jet. If the air screw is screwed out more than about 2.5 turns, the pilot jet is too large and if it is turned in less than 1 turn, your pilot jets are too small.

Adjust the air screw out until you get the highest, smooth idle and then turn back in about 1/4 turn or less.

It is a good idea to check or just change your air filter prior to making any mixture or carb adjustments - make sure the intake tract is not restricted and make sure the spark plugs are in decent shape.

To 'adjust' the jets, they must be replaced. I know this is not what you were hoping to hear, but to adjust the jetting, the carbs have to come off and you have to get into the float bowls to physically change the jets.

these symptoms usually point toward lean on fuel for some reason
most common would be dirty or gummed pilot circuit and pilot jet I would remove carb and take out the pilot jet clean or replace with new - blow compressed air through the hole the pilot jet came out before reinstall
depending what altitude you are a bigger size pilot jet may assist this issue also but clean and replace original pilot jet and circuit first to confirm

I just rejetted ( at least I think I did ) my carburetor on my vstar 1100 custom. The problem is that the Cobra Carb Jet Kit 92-2170 only had main jets.... five of them. Does this mean that only the main...

In many case when you rejet your carburetors you are only changing the mains and the needles(to get rid of the acceleration bog) If they give you several size jets to try, be sure you are putting the right sizes in the right spots. Yamaha typically will run one carburetor leaner than the other. Depending on how the cycle is running , I have known people to match the jets in both carburetors. Check the color of your plugs to double check if you have set the cycle up correctly.

How good did you clean the carbs? The idle jets usually have small holes along the side, and if they are blocked with dirt or bad fuel, it won't idle. Make sure ALL of the passages are clear, and all jets are clear, through the center and holes in the sides of the pilot jets.

I have a 2001 yamaha v star 1100 starting, but not firing it has been sitting since last summer i have replaced the plugs, but it still has teh same gas in it. Could the gas sitting that long with no...

The problem is most likely the pilot jets in the carbs are clogged. As gasoline sits, it changes its form to that of a varnish or jellied state. This can take as little as 3 months or less. There are a collection of jets in the carbs designed to effect specific parts of the throttle input, but your main focus is the pilot jets. These are the smallest ones and are easiest to clog.
When you disassemble the float bowl area (bottoms) of the carbs, remove ALL the jets and soak them in carb cleaner. Using compressed air, blow through all of the passages in the carb body. Remove the jets from the carb cleaner and blow compressed air through the jet orifices. Carefully reassemble the carbs and reinstall them on the bike and you should be all set. :)
If you get stuck give me a call. I'd be glad to help!
