its my second topic. i have bought 2006 v star 1100cc classic with 4200miles on it. i thought it was good deal but not. bike was sitting about 4 years. tank was rusted alot. i finally found radiator shop who clean and seals. bike was bucking before i fix the tank. while waiting tank to be fixed i put seafoam with gas thru fuel hose and let the bike run 10min alot smoke came out. and once no gas left in carbs i fill only seafoam this time and let it sit for one day. and then drain it. now i got tank back and new gas. i take a ride today it was still bucking. so is there any problem with air or just carb need to be cleaned?

you would have to remove the carbs.the float bowls screws strip out.the instructions are in the linc the Wkb.
Check your gas cap screws! These things always have a tendency to come loose. It is recommended that you pull off your gas cap, remove one screw at a time and apply a thread locker product to the screws, then replace and tighten. If too late, bolt size = 4mm x 30mm

i checked there is one bolt missing in the gas cap. what it can cause ?

unless you have a california bike, the tank normally vents thru the gas cap. If you are missing a screw or two it will just vent easier.

If you have a California bike then the tank is pressurized to some extent by the fuel vapor pressure. I dont know if a missing screw on a CA bike will cause issues or not.
