Bike Pops, Bogs, and almost Dies Unless Throttle is Gunned!
Hey Guys, been having a lot of trouble with my 2003 Vstar 1100
[I]I am going to give you a little background info on what I have done so far and on the bike. If you dont want to read this portion the next paragraph will have more on what the problem is. I have taken the carb off twice. I have taken out the pilot jets and cleaned them and then sprayed the other jets with carb cleaner. I also disassembled the needle and diaphragm and put the needles back as best as possible. Needle settings I have on this bike are one carb c clip is on the lowest part of the needle, and I have washer,c clip, plastic spacer shim washer.
the second carb is c clip is one above the lowest setting and is washer, c clip ,plastic spacer, shim washer. I am running a 110 and 112.5 jet, a 17.5 pilot jet and a 42.5. The exhaust looks factory and says Yamaha 5EL-1 but looks like it has some slip on ones on the back. I have a factory air cleaner. I have also replaced the air cleaner, replaced the spark plugs, replaced the oil filter, and the oil .
Now to the problem!
The Bike will sit and idle pretty normally. It also sounds normal when you give it some gas without being in gear or having a load on it. Once you put it in gear and try to take off slowly it pops, bogs, goes a little, bogs again, and so on. If you take off really fast and gun the throttle bikes sounds normal and acts normal. It doesnt give any trouble as long as you are giving it full throttle. Once you try to go around a corner and even let off the throttle the littlest bit it starts to bog and try to die. But in the midst if you pull in the clutch it will idle normally and not die. I even tried to take it up to 70. It will get there and will work as long as your accelerating but try to just cruise at 70 and it does it again. You have to have the throttle down all the way or the bike acts terrible.I just went and bought some SEAfoam to see if it would help. I have drive the bike about 30 minutes and no improvement Any help you guys have would be really appreciated because I am lost with everything I have already done.
I am also having an oil leak around the oil filter cover I cannot figure out.It started leaking right after I changed the oil and filter. It is leaking around the bottom screw where the rubber O-ring for the filter is. I bought a filter from O-Reilly called a Wix 24935. The rubber part on the back of the filter was slightly thicker than the one in my bike, dont know if this the prioblem or what. I have also taken the cover off 3 times since and went back in and put the original small rubber oring back and put the original large orange ring back too. Dang thing still leaks! This is a pain to take off each time too with having to drop exhaust and floorboard.The oil I put in is Mobile 1 Full Sythetic 20w 50.
Any help with these two problems is greatly appreciated
