Question about Yamaha XVS 650 Dragstar Classic Motorcycles
After riding and it sits awhile it seems to not be getting any fire to start

change the coil you may not think it got hot but sometimes a coil can overheat on the inside just enough to break the copper winding. when riding hard slow down for a couple of miles to give everything time to get back to normal temps before shutting it off

check for power to starter w/ testlight when you press start button.if none check for power at starter side of starter solenoid when pressing start button.if none take large screwdriver and wedge between both solenoid posts creating contact w/ key swich on. motor should crank.if it does -starter is good. chek small wire coming out of solenoid for power w/ test light when pressing start,if none check start button contacts or power coming from key switch or wiring from start button to solenoid. if power is at small wire when pressing button but no crank-solenoid is bad.

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

under the left side of the gas tank you will see i black knob/screw at the end of what looks like a hose. the knob faces the rear of bike. that adjusts the idle. its real easy to find and the only adjustment you can make to the carbs.

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.......
