    Starter clutch went out, witch come to find out is a regular thing with this bike in particular. So as I get the timing marks on the flywheel tdc along with rear cylinder. Then I take the casing off as instructed every single video I’ve seen... After I pulled the casing off the gear that is...

    Im swapping the engine out of an 1100 and putting it in another but i have no clue what to do with the driveshaft. Do i disconnect it where it hooks up to the engine on the ubolt or where it hooks to the back wheel? Ill need to drain the gear oil in the back wheel if i do that right? Or do i...

    I just bought a 2000 1100 classic that had been sitting for 7 years. Before ever trying to start it had the carbs rebuilt, oil and filter changed. New plugs and tires. New tank. When we first fired it up it started blowing gas out the front cylinder. Have went back through the carbs several...

    05 VStar 1100 All of you have done a ton for me searching for answers that I haven't needed to ask while I've been fixing this bike 35k mile bike so thank you but I was an idiot and I panicked instead of getting an answer first. This is my first season riding and I'm doing a lot of learning...
  6. Carb and Fuel

    I've been trying to find access to the steering head bolt to maybe tighten it after hearing a worrying clunk, and for the past day I've looked everywhere online in manuals, parts lists, and forum posts and I've convinced myself that it has to be under this chrome cap, maybe I didn't look hard...

    Hey guys so I’m working on a 2007 Yamaha Vstar 1100 classic and it’s my first time messing with carbs. So I am impatient and hate waiting for shipping and i am limited to motorcycle shops where I live so I bought the only aftermarket PMS this bike shop had and it’s the moose racing one and it...

    I just picked up a nice 2003 Vstar 1100 with 14k miles on it. Runs great! Didn’t realize they have a starter clutch issue according to what I’ve read. But a post said if you use the correct starting procedure it could prevent starter clutch issues. Hope that’s the case... So my question is has...

    Hey I’m looking at getting a Vstar and I don’t know whether to get the 650 or the 1100 starting out. I feel the 650 would be a better starter but I’ve currently been driving a 1200 Goldwing(Dad’s bike) and I’m looking to get my own soon. The biggest thing is that I wanna take it on 2+ hour...

    Hey everyone new to the forum. I’m currently in the market for a new bike and I’ve pretty much decided on either an 1100 custom or a Kawasaki Vulcan 900 custom. I’m leaning more towards the 1100. My question is aside from the basic wear and tear what should I look for in an 05+ 1100? Is there...

    So I’m looking thru ideas and the what not and I saw this guy 05 V Star 1100 classic on Facebook with some hard saddle bags that fits for 1994-2013 Harley Davidson touring models with some other conversion brackets that fits for a Harley Davidson heritage Softtail 1984-2013. Anyone else that...

    Recently I’ve done work to my 2008 VStar 1100. Allow me to take a second to elaborate on all the work done to see if possibly they are contributing factors. We put a full exhaust kit. Cobra drags. We didn’t jet the carburetors, but did sync them with a vacuum tester device. We then installed a...

    Hey guys, lately I’m noticing, I can not go passed 85 miles an hour without my fuel cutoff or speed limiter kicking in.. and it bothers me. I ride with a MC and in certain situations I need to speed up but I can’t and it takes me a billion years to catch up. I need help solving this issue :(.

    Just bought a “new to me” 06 Xvs1100 from a dealership and about a month after riding I’m starting to have carburetor backfires and pops from the exhaust. It has a stock air box and an aftermarket exhaust system. I seem to get really low fuel mileage too. I know that I should some tuning to the...
