Question about 2006 Yamaha V Star Classic

1 Answer

My girlfriend has a 2006 vstar 650 classic. it sat for 2 years. i put new gas and ran carb and fuel system cleaner thru it. it idles fine but as soon as you give it just a little gas it stalls out. no matter how slow you turn the throttle it stalls out, but as i said it will idle just fine. can the carbs be out of sync? am i getting fuel to the carbs? it doesn't smell like it is flooding out, i get no gas smell at all. what do you think it could be.

Your idling jets works well, but your throttling jet may have blocked in it. open the carburator and clean it.

SOURCE: 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.

Don't worry about the air-fuel mixture. It doesn't need to get adjusted.

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 vstar 650 custom has set for about a year. charged the battery. it would not idle. now it won't fire at all. i put carb cleaner in with the gas but i cant get it to stay running to do its job.


Take the plugs out clean or replace em' then try to crank it again......If you still don't get anything then you may have to take off the ol' carb and cleaner up..........what kind of carb cleaner did you put in with the gas??

Sounds like it may be drawing air around the intake somewhere. Let it idle and spray around carefully with wd-40 until it speeds up. This will reveal the leak.

2001 v star 650 classic won't idle after being stored


You have a gummed up mainjet. Always store a gas engine with Staybul gas additive to avoid this problem in the future. Now, on to the current problem. Since the bike will at least idle your in luck. Just go down to an auto parts store and get a can of Sea Foam. I usually find it at NAPA it's a white can that looks like it came from a gas station in the 1940's Because it did. Mechanics have been useing it for years. Anyway, dump about half the can in the tank with a couple gallons of gas and fire it up. Let it idle a long time. Then start trying to ride it. You may have to let it set over night if it's really gummed up but it will clean it out. Easy fix, and you can leave it in with no problems. Happy motoring.

The excess fuel is caused by the float levels being out of adjustment. Fix the floats and the dead spot may disappear. If not, pull the slides and then move the jet needle clip down one notch. With due respect, I would put the bike carbs back to stock. :)
