Take the bike to the shop to diagnose, more than likely it is a Throttle Position Sensor. It could also be a blocked fuel filter starving the engine. Only the mechanic can obtain the codes and point you in the irght direction.

I have a 2009 1100 vstar and the engine spits occasionally back into the carburetor and some times pops so hard that it kills the engine. I took it back to the dealer they reset everthing and they say that...

When Harley's spit through the carburetors they usually pull off the intake manifolds and reseal the them . New gaskets, o-rings, or even manifolds, whatever it takes to seal the intake. You may want to run some Yamaha Ring Free Fuel Additive ( Chevron Techron Fuel Additive) through the bike. A bad spark plug or spark plug cap could also be contributing to the pre-ignition that you are experiencing. If you can fix it yourself may be Yamaha will be kind enough to cover the parts cost if you are still under warranty and you are very polite in the letter you write.

Where does the oil come out of a 2004 Yamaha 1100 VStar Classic

Oil drain plug is located near the bottom of the engine, left side toward the front. The oil filter element is located on the right side of the engine under the cover toward the front. Changing the oil filter usually requires removal of the front exhaust pipe. There is an aftermarket filter relocation kit that replaces the filter element with a spin on filter that mounts on the front of the bike.
