Question about 2006 Yamaha V Star 1100 Classic
When cold will not idle at all till warmed up a bit then wont idle down or takes a while to go back down to idle
More than likely the carbs are plugged up(makes the no idle, popping from the intake or pipe and sometimes hard starting), and/or a vacuum line(s) Is loose/broken, and the carbs are probably out of sync (makes the high sticking idle/little to no idle). I have many article written about cleaning the carbs and fuel system. Get the carbs and fuel system cleaned out if you are not familiar with the process.

How's the battery holding up? Check the voltage on the battery and also check to see if it is bubbling a lot. 13.8V is optimal for the battery charging with the engine running, but up to 14.4 is common. If it's running a lot over that and the battery is making a lot of bubbles, probably the regulator is the problem.
If the battery is low on electrolyte, the regulator doesn't have anyplace to dump electrons, and that could also be a problem, so make sure the battery connections are good and tight, too.

Check to be sure the cables are not binding.
LUBE those cables!
You can buy a device that is simple and not expensive to lube the cables.
My V Star-1100 custom did exactly the same thing after about 4 years.
Seems the standard service package does not include lubing the cables!
After a generous lube the throttle cables and sticking slow return vanished.
Pleasant surprise how easy the throttle and clutch cables worked too!

at sea level there is 14.7 psi of air pressure, the higher you go the thinner the air. thus, need more air and less fuel. adjuster your idle air screw mixture.

The idle is set too high. Check on the left side of the engine, about mid point of the jugs "V", you should see a knob near the middle. Turn it R/L until the idle lowers. (slowly!) (only AFTER it has warmed up.
