I am having trouble with a V star 650 it will start and run it will idle but when you try to rev the engine it cuts out unless it is fully choked. even then it cuts out some it acts like it is not getting enough gas. I took the fuel filter out and ran strait tubing in its place and that made no difference.
any suggestions?
thanks
John

Could be that the carbs have gummed up some from this God awful stuff they pass on as gasoline.
Has the bike set up any length of time?

My 650 sat for about 2 months last winter and did not want to run above an idle. I poured about half a can of SeaFoam into the tank and after about 15 to 20 mins...it straightened right up!

I'm a firm believer in using SeaFoam!
