Question about 2002 Yamaha V Star Classic
I have a 2002 Yamaha V-Star Classic 1100. Bike will not run over 70 MPH. The bike has been sitting for a month, it starts fine and idles fine.Any idea what I should check first.
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:
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
