My fj1100 has gas in the oil


You have a stuck float needle in one or more of the carbs. This is allowing the gas to continue to flow from the tank into the float bowl and eventually it fills up and spills over into the engine.

While turning engine over gas flows from overflow pipe


It sounds like a problem with one of your carb floats. The float is supposed to shut off fuel flow to the carburetor when the bowl is filled with gas. It may be stuck down or just not floating (can happen if it's damaged or has a hole in it). You can do this at home, but if you're not comfortable working on a carb yourself you should visit a mechanic.

Gas coming out of over flow while trying to start


You probably have a stuck float in one of your carburetors. Sometimes, rapping on the float bowl with a screwdriver handle or similar tool will knock it loose. Sometimes, you just have to bite the bulle and pull the float bowl off.

My v-star 1100 has not been run in over a year. fuel leaks when trying to start. Whats wrong?


This sounds to me like a carb float being stuck open. Turn off the gas and drain the offending carb(s). Next, turn the gas back on and sharply tap the float bowl with the plastic handle of a screwdriver as the fuel bowl refills. The goal here is to vibrate the float to free it up. If doing this process a couple of times does not free the float I would remove the carb(s) and clean with a spray carb cleaner. Clean the air filter then re-mount carb(s). Next, Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, ( not all bikes have a water trap bowl ). Install an inline fuel filter.
