  1. V Star
    My fiancée has a 2005 VStar that has recently had an issue of dying on a cold start if I give it any choke when trying to warm it up. Is this an enrichener circut issue where I would just need to clean that or is this a full carb rebuild issue. I have resorted to just holding the throttle in...
  2. V Star

  7. Engine Work
    I bought this V Star 650. It only went 55 mph when I bought it. Now I have k&n ans cobra exhaust. I cleaned the Jets and now it runs (ran) beautifully. I bought an all balls repair kit.
