2005 V-Star 1100 won't rev past 1/3 throttle
Brand new here and this, my first post, is due to mechanical failure and owner meltdown...
The bike died one rainy night in a flooded condition. No start so towed it home. Took carbs apart and cleaned everything and reset the floats. Bike started and idled great and more reponsive on the lower 1/4 throttle. BUT...
After many more attempts at cleaning the jets and floats and needles/seats, checking for vacuum leaks, fuel delivery ie; petcock, vacuum lock at the tank cap, lines etc. and after various float level settings, the engine still stalls out at just over 1/3 throttle.
Slides and diaphragm are clean and free sliding with good vacuum. Jets seem to be clean and floats are set. This thing has me baffled. New plugs as well.
Wondering now if I'm barking up the wrong tree and if I should be checking for coil output. Got plenty of spark at the plugs and the battery is fully charged.
As a note, nothing has been replaced except the plugs. Float needles and seat are the same as are the jets and o-rings. The bike was running and then shut off to a no start/flooded condition.
Any idea's appreciated!!
