  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
    Hi Folks, When I pulled off my carburetor, I heard this little voice saying I should label all of the hoses, or at least take a few pictures. But I told myself "Don't worry, you'll be able to remember". Well, you probably know what I'm going to say. Does anyone have photos of the fuel and...

Was super careful but the metal was just incredibly brittle. I'm looking to just replace the carbs overall at this point anyway. It's stock...
  6. V Star
    01 V Star 1100. I recently cleaned the carbs and everything was working properly. Now for some reason the carb bowls are dry as a bone. The fuel pump is only working when the lines are not connected to the carbs. I pulled the carbs off again to check the floats and everything seems to be in...
  7. V Star
    Hello, everyone. I hope everyone is having a good day/night. I just recently bought a V star 650 Classic (01) for $1,500. The person who sold it to me said he was selling it for so cheap because he said he messed up the carburetor trying to do a DIY job. Something to do with either the needle...
