SOURCE: I have lost my key to my yamaha 1100 vstar classic

Assuming your dealer can't do it, just as a matter of customer relations he should find someone who can.Find and contact the regional manager for Yamaha and ask for his assistance.
Worst case is you go to a locksmith and have him make a key from impressions on a blank key. Call a few locksmiths to see who has some key blanks and is able to do the magic.

Alternate to all the above is to Google " motorcycle salvage yamaha " and get a good used switch for cheap.

SOURCE: Yamaha VStar 1100. Valve train noise after starter clutch repair.

The cam chain has stretched a bit making it look like its half a tooth out, the tensioner takes up the slack but makes the cam timing slightly out.
You could have timed the crank 280 degrees out
It should be timed on the T mark for one cylinder & on the I mark (if there is one) for the other.
The marks before the T mark are for ignition timing (firing marks)


Good Luck
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 1100 yamaha 2003 vstar classic gas tank remove

1) Make sure your fuel petcock is closed, then detach the gas line coming off it (left underside of tank)
2) Remove the back seat (single acorn nut on rear fender)
3) Remove the front seat (two allen bolts at the back of seat)
4) There are two metric 12mm bolts under the front seat that hold the tank down. Remove them. The tank should be sitting loose on bike, but connected by some wires
5) Disconnect the white wiring harness under the bike. Tank is now totally free to remove.
6) Pull tank up and back at the same time, it will slide off the two rubber mounts at the front.

SOURCE: how do I adjust the timing chain on 2002 yamaha

The timing chain most likely adjusts itself( I am not certain) however a loose chain will cause an engine rattle, but is not the cause of popping and dying.
try cleaning the fuel system, new spark plugs,new air cleaner
