Might be crud in carbys if not injected. If carbed then undo the carb drains to see if fuel comes out.

It's winter time...so cold weather is present and you'll have to use the choke. Are you using the choke?

I have a 2000 Yahama Vstar 650. It starts up immediately but runs really rough, stalls when I turn the choke off... We just purchased it two weeks and the gentleman told us that it sat last year. However,...


If old gas sat in the carb.s for more than a month it starts to dry up. As it drys up it leaves behind a varnish like film that stops up some very small ports and pin holes inside a motorcycle carburetor. It is also very hard to get out. You can try this before you pull the carb.s for a full cleaning.Use a product called Seafoam, get as much gas out of the carb.s as you can. use a turkey baster and force the seafoam into your carb.s fuel line that you take loose from the fuel tank. Let that set for say 1 or 2 days. then hook up the fueltank with a mix of good gas and seafoam, (not a lot but enough to start it up. Move the cycle outside as the seafoam will make a lot of smoke if it does start up. If that does not clear up the problem you may have to pull the carb(s) and remove the blows to clean the inside. If you have to do that do not DO NOT MESS with any adjustment screws, DO NOT MESS with any adjustment screws. Just take the carb. bowl(s) off keep each one separate and number them so they do not get mixed up. do not mix up any internal parts. It is best to work on one at the time so nothing goes wrong. Work on a large sheet so if you drop a small part you can find it, you do not want to be missing some tiny spring or screw. Hope this Helps.

1983 Yamaha Maxim 650 Just got bike a few weeks ago - engine was replaced to I believe a 750 Engine will not turn over - starter engages - all battery and electronic components and fuses looked over...


I had the same problem before when I got my bike. I was trying to start the bike and always giving throttle. I figured just start with choke on and it starts (do not give any throttle).

Vstar 650 classic. only will idle.


hello and welcome
this is a very very commom problem after the cycle has gone over a storage period of anything over a month or so. what has happened is the deteriorated fuel has plugged the idle jet, and possibley other jetting. this is verified by pulling out the choke allows it to run. because this makes of for the loss of fuel the jets are not produceing. so to fix this you will need to remove the carbs and take out the jets and clean them thoroughly with a carb cleaner and possibly a very small gauge wire to break up builup. especially in the pilot jet. unfortunately fuel added carb cleaners dont seem to work for this kind of problem and to fix right they should be disassembled and cleaned thoroughly. thank you.
