Just Bought 2003 Vstar 1100 W Carb Issues

Hi Just bought a 2003 Vstar 1100and it doesn't idle right and acceleration isn't all that.It also sounds like Im popping popcorn on decel.Already tore the carb off but going to need some help from you guys getting this baby running right and getting the stock needle settings with as far as the washers and the plastic spacer go.

Right now starting at the needle holder I have:Needle holder, spring, Washer, C-Clip, plastic spacer and then washer. Anyone know if this the correct setting? Its hard for me to tell with the black and white diagrams on the web.

you have a stock setup with the needles.popping on decell is lean ,richen your pms screws.what intake and exhaust setup do you have.your carbs are probably dirty.is why it's running bad

Welcome!

You have a few links in your other thread in the vstar forum courtesy Nick. I think all the info you need is there, but please ask more if you need anything else.
