Therre is a vent from the underside of the tank to atmosphere. It may be pinched or clogged. If the cap has a vent it is plugged. clean cap in carburetor cleaner.

BMW F650 FUNDURO 1994. My fuel filter (not that under carbs inside T connector-but the one after petcock a seethrough plastic one) delays a lot to be filled up with gas and as a result my bike shuts off!...


It sounds like a plugged vent on the fuel tank. There is a safety valve on top of the tank that should allow air in to fill the space where the gas was. A malfunctioning valve would cause the problem you describe. First, make sure the vent tube is not full of mud. If a vacuum is forming in the tank you should hear a hissing when opening the fuel tank. Opening the fuel cap when the filter is half full, and the bike is running, should allow the filter to fill up normally. If the the one way valve/vent on top of the tank is bad replace it with a new one(about $25). Another possibility would be a fuel pump malfunction. Open the fuel cap , unplug the lines going to the carburetors, place them into a cup, turn the cycle on, and see if the pump is pushing the fuel properly. If the fuel pump is bad it will run around $360.

My bike hasnt been ridden for a few months, and you need to give it full choke to start and keep it going, it wont idle when the choke is depressed, It is A Vstar 650 Classic


was fuel left in the carburetors when you parked it your metering jets might be slightly clogged with varnish i dont recomend opening them yourself take it to a professional and next time you park it for an extended period of time close the fuel valve and leave the bike running until the carbs run out of gas "the bike will stop running when this happens"

2007 650 yamaha vstar popping through the rear cylinder exhaust


First off did you buy it new? Second has it gone through its break in tune up yet?Did you do the re jeting? My guess is it was re jeted wrong & neeeds to be re jeted again or could also need more air(upgraded air kit) or a tfi or power comand fuel mod.My bike also poped untill I did the air & fuel upgrades & them upgrades will also give you a much needed house power needed for this rig.


Bring it to a shop & have it looked at.......


Good luck
