Question about 2004 Yamaha V Star 1100 Custom

I have a 2004 Yamaha Vstar 1100. Starts and idles fine, but as soon as I twist
the accelerator it stalls. Its been sitting over the winter. I drained the gas and put new gas in it today
along with some carb cleaner and let it run for a bit, but still the same
I am not savvy with the internal parts of that carburetor, however, I have had similar problems. There is a product that Auto Zone sales called RXP (I use it religiously), it is a gas additive. (Don't let them talk you into a different product). It is a very small bottle (often times they keep it behind the counter and you have to ask for it). It looks like one of those little energy shots, it costs about $8, but it is well worth it. It has worked miracles for me, and it will clean out your carb! But I can't guarantee that a dirty carb is your problem, anyways, I hope this helps.

Open up the carb and clean the jets with pressurized air. I also suspect water on the carburetor reservoir, before opening the carb, drain it first then run. Also, make sure the plugs are clean. Pull on the choke when twisting the accelerator, if it accelerates well, then warm the beast at normal temperature first before twisting the throttle hard again.
hope this helps-
