Question about 2004 Yamaha V Star 1100 Custom
Vstar will only idle with choke all the way out. When I try to give it throttle it dies. It sat for a while in my garage before this problem started. I drained the fuel and changed the fuel filter. I srayed carb cleaner in the carbs. It does rev up when I spray cleaner in the carbs. But dies when given throttle. Any suggestions would be great.
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.
