Tks Keith,

I left my bike sitting for a while and didn't start, So, I remove the carbs and cleaned up and the drama started ... When I try to give some gas the bike just stalls.

This week I tried for the 3rd time, I took the carb apart and cleanup everything that I could. I even bought guitar strings to make sure I didn't miss any hole. Put back together, idle works smooth, but when I try to rev and give some gas it stalls. I did a test that I saw in other forum, removed the airbox on top of the carb and while running and rev at same time sprayed some carb fluid and the engine responded properly. It looks like is not enough gas going on the carbs. Any idea how to adjust it? Again is a 2008 vstar 650.

Tks!

Welcome to the forum from Northwest Illinois. Did you check the fuel line to the petcock and the petcock itself for blockage? Just my 2 cents of things to try. Ride safe.

Working on my 'bucket list' and enjoying every minute of it!!
