2005 Yamaha V Star 1100 Custom - Answered Questions & Fixed issues


Hi, Fichmann I would love to help you with your engine or chassis noise but I just loaned my brand new pair of listening ears to your local dealer's chief technician so he could take your bike for a test ride and give you his professional opinion and estimate about your noise and repair cost. If you are a little short on "DRACHMA" and a Dealership is not on your list of fun places to visit then perhaps the list below will help soothe your worried mind so you can make an informed decision.
1. Bearings---SCREECH
2. Belts---CHIRP
3. Brake Rotors---BUZZ
4. Chains---RATTLE
5. Clutches---CHATTER
6. Cylinders---PING
7. Fairing Panels---WHISTLE
8. Fronk Forks---Plunk
9. Gears---WHINE
10. Head Gasket---HISS
11. Hydraulic Lifters---TAP
12. Pistons---SLAP
13. Rear Shocks---SQUEAK
14. Shifting Trans---CLUNK
15. Solid Lifters---TICK
16. Starters---CLICK
17. Connecting Rods Go---KNOCK-KNOCK---who's there, it's me "*****"

Salut, Anonymous la grande majorit? des services, des pi?ces et des propri?taires manuels sur Internet sont "FREE" pour t?l?charger et tous les manuels de service contient des sch?mas de c?blage dans les pages du dos. Le reste chargent habituellement un prix modique d'environ 10 $ et il y a une poign?e de mod?les obscurs, rares, obsol?tes, et tr?s anciens qui ne sont plus ou ne sont ?taient disponibles. La plupart des manuels couvriront votre marque exacte, le mod?le et l'ann?e sinon on sera fourni qui vient le plus pr?s possible de votre v?lo et aura la plupart des m?mes informations qu'un manuel exact aurait.

Hi, Anonymous your starter motor is not/was not the problem that dubious title goes to the starter drive/Bendix/clutch is a separate component that is activated by the starter motor it is a mechanical gear driven part that engages the clutch pack to turn over the engine. It has an internal mechanism that allows the gear to turn in one direction and once the engine starts allows the drive gear to free spin. If gear free spins in both directions then the drive gear has failed, it is not serviceable and needs to be replaced.

it sounds like your engine is burning oil. Are you having to put oil in the engine to keep it topped up on a regular basis? If you are either the rings on the pistons are worn out or the valve seals are draining into the rest of the engine and then oiling up your air filter

2005 Yamaha V... | Answered on Nov 08, 2010 | 258 views


What most likely happened was that the bushing inside the speedometer - the one where the speedo cable goes in, dried up and seized. This, in turn, probably caused the cable to snap. Now, I'm not sure if you're talking about the speedometer or the tachometer - but it doesn't matter, the result is the same; some high pitched noises, and then nothing.
Do this: take the instruments off so you can flip them over. Then, put a drop or two (but no more) of a light viscosity oil in the area where the cable attaches to the tach and speedo.
Caution: do not use more than one or two drops of oil in each - and no not leave the units upside down for any length of time. Failure to heed these warnings will cause oil to drip onto the instrument faces. Ugly and un-fixable.
Reinstall and replace the broken tach or speedo cables - and you are done.

This usually means your fuel mixture is too rich

Right you are, jack the rear tire off the ground being careful not to pickup the swingarm at the same time...Using either a spanner wrench or VERY large pair of channel locks you should be able to turn it.
Good Luck

Hi, Joseph the answer to this question is way above my pay grade for this situation, I would call or visit my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry.
Good luck and have a wonderful day.

Hi, Ivan and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery, should have 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a "LOAD" test if necessary, your battery may show 12.5 volts but have little or zero amps and needs to be replaced.
2. Failed alternator/generator and or voltage regulator.
3. Loose or corroded battery terminals and or cables especially the "NEGATIVE" cable, look for loose, corroded, or broken connectors inside the cable harness at "BOTH" ends.
4. Failed main circuit breaker or ignition switch, check for loose connections and continuity.
5. Failed system and or ignition relay, check for continuity.
6. Failed ignition coil, stator, magneto, points/condenser ignition/electronic module.
7. Failed CKP, CPS, CMP, MAP, TPS, or BAS sensor, corroded, loose or broken wire connector pins/sockets.
8. Throttle cables and or idle speed improperly adjusted hot idle speed should be 950 RPM to 1000 RPM.

10. Accelerator pump damaged or not working.
11. Water or dirt in the fuel system, carburetor or filter.
