I have a 04 1100 v-star custom. i was cruiseing down the highway yesterday doing 80, and i just lost half of the power out of nowhere. @ full throttle i can only manage about 65mph. when i hold the clutch i can rev up the eng , but when i pop it back in its like pulling teeth trying to get her to go. Any Ideas, I'm at a loss

Problem solved : i had got ahold of some bad gas and sucked some trash into my carb's.
My solution:
1. I got a Solid Glass in-line fuel filter, with a reuseable steel mesh cartridge for $10. This makes it a lot easier to see what's going on with your fuel supply.

2.I found an AWSOME Detailed how-to guide on rejettin the carbs on 1100 V-Stars at:
www.vstar1100.com/1100jetting.pdf. I used this along with my hanes manual to clean my carbs. Did I mention it was AWSOME?

My first thought is: Did you or are you using regular gas that may have ethanol in it?

I also have a 04 1100 and had a ton of problems with this. After switching to premium the problem was solve.

Hope this helps,
