20 Most Recent 2007 Yamaha Road Star Midnight Silverado Questions & Answers


The warranty may be over in the time it has taken for you to ride nearly 14,000 miles. Aside from that, now would be a good time to let the dealer service the bike. Valve settings should be checked every 5000 to 10,000 miles. Generally, the valves will last the life of the bike. Re-seating the valves may need to be done around 25,000 miles or so, but only if the compression is down or symptoms such as backfires or popping back through a carb come about. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

It could be fuel problem. Please check the fuel lines, the filter, the pump etc.

The clicking may be the starter solenoid. Check for a dead battery or defective solenoid.

Yamaha Road Star... | Answered on Apr 13, 2014


Charge the battery and give it a try. I would suggest that you turn it over with the plugs removed for about 30 seconds before you refit the plugs and try and fire it up. This will circulate oil round the cold engine and reduce the chance of wear on start up, as the internals will be dry. Once started you may like to do a complete minor service (oil, filters and check the brake fluid levels.)

is the battery flat?.start with that!!..if not..are the battery termanials done up tight on the battery...then check that solenoind termenals are done up...hope this helps

Do not run it in that condition because it is going to cost a lot more to fix if it goes completely. it sounds like a valve is dropped or a bearing spun or a rod is bent or a compression/oil ring may be broken-but ANY of those will be a lot cheaper if you do NOT start it again and either tear it down yourself if you know how, or get a certified mechanic to do so. Good luck!

Check the positive battery wire and see if there is an inline fuse. Many manufacturers put an inline fuse (normally called a fusible link) in the system to protect against a dead short to ground of the battery. Reversing the battery would also cause the link to blow. Follow the battery line and using a test light or multimeter, check that you have voltage at the other end of the battery cable.

If you do, then something has burned out. I would suspect something like the generator or something like that.

Let me know what you find.

How are you venting the caliper as force the piston back in....are you using the bleeder or trying to force the fluid back to master cylinder reservoir? Is there room in the reservoir for the fluid being pushed back? Safest way is using the bleeder.
Did you clean off the piston before trying to push it in?

the mechanic should be checking you side bushing . if the shock is fine then try to check the bushing it could be the problem.

Hi, Douglas external oil deposits fall into 3 categories:
1. WEEPAGE is the oil that is sweated pass gaskets, seals, o-rings, and crankcase seams, it's covered by dry dust and is normal for older engines with lots of miles, no repair is necessary.
2. SEEPAGE is the same as weepage except the deposit is wet and confines itself to a specific area, the repair is optional depending on the owner's cleanliness criteria, the deposit location and the weight of his bag of "DRACHMA"
3. LEAKAGE is the same as seepage except it is enough to drop to the ground leaving a spot. Repair as necessary.
To find the source of your oil leak, start at the point where you see oil and trace its path going up and forward, blowing baby powder from the palm of your hand will help in those difficult to see areas if there is too much oil present then buy a spray can of engine degreaser apply it to the affected area then rinse off with a pressure wand or garden hose, use compressed air to blow off excess water or just let it drip dry, take your bike for a 15 minute ride and check for the leak.

Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty.
2. The fuel tank has old dead gas.
3. Fuel tank bottom contaminated with ethanol sludge, dirt, water, rust, etc.
4. Fuel supply valve/petcock turned off.
5. Fouled spark plugs.
6. Engine flooded as a result of overuse of the choke.
7. Vacuum hose to the fuel supply valve/petcock disconnected, broken, cracked, or pinched.
8. Fuel valve/petcock or filter clogged.
9. Fuel line to carburetor or throttle body pinched, kinked or blocked.
10. Carburetor float stuck.
11. Fuel injectors clogged.
12. Fuel injectors stuck open.
13. Quick disconnect check ball stuck.
14. Compression below 75 PSI.
15. A stuck-bent-burnt valve.
16. Improper valve clearance (too tight)
17. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a cursory reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
18. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
19. Loose or corroded wire connection at the coil or plug between ignition sensor and ECM module.
20. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting check for spark leakage in the dark, cable connections are loose or connected to the wrong cylinders.
21. Ignition timing incorrect due to a faulty ignition coil, ignition module or MAP, CMP, CKP, O2, TPS, ETP, IAC sensors.
22. Faulty neutral, clutch, kickstand safety switch.
23. Faulty fuel pump or fuse or relay.
24. Faulty or corroded run/stop switch.
25. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
26. Security system not disarming alarm needs a reset.
27. Check for engine trouble codes.

4. Air leaks: If excessive air leaks into the intake ahead of the impeller, the jet unit will "slip". Possible sources of air leaks are though a faulty gland seal, which is usually accompanied by a static water leak into the boat when standing idle.
So if the gland is worn out and leaking into the boat with the engine off, it can also suck air when accelerating on to plane, and if this happens, then the thrust is reduced dramatically. Air can also be introduced into the system via the inspection cover, so you will want to make sure the cover is tight.
