Question about 2002 Yamaha V Star 1100 Custom

1 Answer

I have a 2002 Yamaha V-Star, I just purchased a new sealed battery, and it starts the bike fine, but as soon as I shut her off, it wont start back up !

I just purchased the bike. It has 26,000 miles on it. When I went to look at it, she needed to be jumped, so I purchased a new battery. I put the new battery on a charger overnight, and she started fine. I stopped to get gas, and when I tried to restart it, she failed to start. What should I do?

Have you done all the regular stuff? There are a number of interlock safeties on this bike. To start, key on of course, side stand up or in neutral, if in gear and clutch is engaged, it will not start, if the kill switch is in the off position, it will not start. Said differently, you must have the key in the on position, side stand retracted, transmission in neutral, clutch pulled in, kill switch in run position. Still will not start, check the start solenoid for proper operation. If that works ... suspect the starter motor.

the floats in the carb are stuck. you can try lightly tapping on the carb with a screwdriver that should do the trick.

SOURCE: 1999 Yamaha Vstar 650 Custom ...makes clicking noise when trned

i use a jump box on mine most weekends when i wanna take it out, i hook the red to battery and black onto my exhaust and it fires right up no problem. is the clicking noise coming from the fuel pump behind the ignition? it should click for a few seconds then stop. if it stays on then you are not getting enough fuel outta the tank, change the fuel filter and if bike had been stored for winter get a good fuel system cleaner, additive type. if in USA get Berrymans B12, double dose get bike to run hopefully let it stand overnight and all should be fine. fingers crossed. if is is clicking from somewhere else like starter or a relay by the battery, check all the ground terminals you can find

I have a 2008 v-star 1300 and it wont start. Lights come on but no ignition. Not even a sound when you turn the key, or when you hit the start button. Any suggestions?


Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, needs to be 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
4. Check the 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.
5. Tip over sensor needs a reset.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
9. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
10. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
11. Check for engine trouble codes.

Hi, Stanley if your bike has been sitting idle for months or years and you did not do any pre-storage maintenance I feel your pain it will probably have a dead battery and not want to start or if it starts it will idle and run poorly, here are the following steps necessary to complete in order to get your bike back to an acceptable running condition.
1. If your battery was 2-3 years old when you last had the bike running you should replace it.
2. If you believe your battery might still be serviceable remove it from the bike and put it on a 1 or 2 amp trickle charger for 24 hours. If it is the old lead acid type with visible cells and acid levels fill each cell to the top line with distilled water and replace the caps, run the vent tube into a plastic or styrofoam cup, any cells that are cloudy/milky replace the battery.
3. After charging remove the leads and let the battery sit for a couple of hours then check the battery voltage with a volt meter, you should have 12.5 volts or better, any readings in the 11 volt range you need to do a proper load test on the battery and replace as necessary, any readings in the 10 volt range you have a dead cell and replace the battery.
4. Drain and flush fuel tank, google " how to clean a motorcycle gas tank" find a couple forums to view the different options available.
5. Remove your air cleaner and clean and re-oil per Mfg. specifications.
6. Remove the carburetor, disassemble and decontaminate with a carb dip or if you have EFI remove injectors and clean with carb spray and compressed air
7. Remove fuel valve and filter disassemble and clean as necessary, remove fuel lines and replace with new ones.
8. Replace spark plug with a new one and check for spark.

I just purchased the 2004 road star. The first thing i noticed is the battery was dead. I checked it.. lots of Voltage ..no amperage. I purchesed a new one. As soon as i installed this, I tried to start...


There could be a number of problems here ,It may be your regulator is playing up and draining your battery ,or you may have an earthing fault .best advice is to get an electician to check out the wiring system .It cheaper that bying diffrent components in the hope it will solve the problem.
