20 Most Recent 2007 Yamaha V Star 1100 Custom Questions & Answers


Hi, Pete the starter drive/Bendix/clutch is a mechanical gear driven component that engages the clutch pack ring gear 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.

Check for clean, corrosion-free wiring connections (especially at the battery) and don't forget grounds! They are as important as the hot side. You may find this to be of help:

i just average joe, but i vote broken ring...sorry pal.. i recently repaired a bike...same thing was happening...in my case, the thing just had too much oil in it , so much so that it was backing into carb...jus a thought

2007 Yamaha V... | Answered on Dec 07, 2013


Sounds like the carb(s) are gummed up and have clogged passages. A thorough cleaning should solve your problem. Note: don't use steel objects to clean the jets since they will enlarge them and will only end up compounding the problem. I've had success with wood and copper wire.

When you first turn the key on, you should hear the fuel pump come on and build pressure - it will be a ticking noise. When the pressure is low the pump will run continuously, when the pressure comes up, the ticking will slow down and the pump will stop. The fuel pump is located behind the lowest cover on the left side of the bike - but you can hear it normally with the cover in place. If it's not working, check the fuse - it's in the same area as the pump if I recall correctly.

Also - check your fuel filter - it's under the seat behind the first plastic cover you'll see when you take the seat off.

If none of that works, you might want to drain the tank and pull the petcoc(k) and check the filters on it.

You can use it if it is JASO MA certified motorcycle oil but if you drive your cycle in warm weather the thin oil will burn off the cylinder walls. In other words keep an eye on the oil level or you may find yourself a quart low. It is not worth the minor horse power increase of thin oil to risk running low on oil in hot weather. If your driving in Canada or Norway in winter it should work great.

Same gas? Make sure your gas is fresh.
Overall though the bike is still not getting fuel like it should. Something is not clean.
Start at the tank and make sure it flows plenty of gas. Some have screens in the bottom that can get dirty.
Next check the fuel filter and change it if you haven't in a while.
Make sure the fuel line flows plenty of fuel from the tank to the carb.
Next the carbs need stripped and soaked in cleaner. Every little passageway needs checked. You should not need to change float levels or mess with Idle air.
Make sure the choke circuit is working.
If you go through each step above starting with fresh gas it should work. If it doesn't you will have to take it to a repair shop. Taking it to a shop that specializes in bikes makes it their problem. OR you could just buy a replacement carb. Personally I think a very though clean job that includes a carb gasket kit and blowing all the passsages out and rodding them with piano wire if necessary will do the job.

The front fork needs to be tightened by bringing the sleve(hollow tube extending from the center of the fork where its attached to the handle. As the bears wear down the gap between the two increases and the front wheel makes a clicking sound when going over small bumps/holes. Tighten the upper nut a few notches but ensure that the handle is not too tight and its rotation to left & right is free, just the gap been reduced so that there is play between the two.........................sodeep

Once your bike and the oil warms up crevasses can become more leak prone and oil becomes less dense making it easier for it to find its way through open spots. I would get the bike warm and then with the bike still running do a close up inspection to search for the trouble spot. Hopefully its just a top end gasket which has usually been the case with me.
