2007 vstar classic doesn't always start right away which is a bit embarrassing when around people who don't know much about motorcycle :((((( when cold or hot engine the bike starts almost right away then stalls . I have to restart the bike 2-4 times before it finally runs fine . Its almost random as sometimes it will start just fine the first time? ?????? Got new spark plugs ,air filter ....yet same problem. Otherwise the bike runs just fine .

If it were my bike....any difficult start issue I'd have the tach on it making sure it was at 1000 RPM. If that didn't do it, I'd synch the carb s, then reset the idle again. Those are the most common issues.

The 1100 can have a hard start when hot...but if should clear of you just hold the starter button down for 20 seconds or so until it starts fully. That is if the idle is set right and the carbs synched. If your bike is an 06-up...or 05-up Cali model, removing the main jet O ring can also help.
