Hello all, I have a few mechanical question for my 2007 VStar 1100 Custom w/ 13600 miles.

-In low range RPM's, (especially while turning) there is a slight "burp" in the exhaust, almost as if it's not getting gas. Instead of a steady, consistent throttle response, it will be smooth, have a small burp, be smooth, small burp....etc. The throttle will be in the same position the whole time throughout the turn as well. (this happens even when the bike has plenty of gas in it)

-My rear brake sticks a small amount, especially if it is pressed hard. I've noticed there is a recoil spring, does this wear out over time and could that be causing the brake pedal to not "pop" back to it's original position, thus releasing the tension on the rear brake disc?

-Last question, (non-mechanical) but I am trying to download an owners manual, and there are many submodels of the Vstar (C(T), S, R) and I'm unsure which one I have. My title says "XVS110"...it is a 1100 Custom, but I'm confused about this. Can someone chime in with a VIN tip to figure this out?


Thank you for your help guys, it is much appreciated!

xvs1100 is the custom,xvs1100a is classic .then you have the silverado and the blacked out one,silverado and classic are same,mechanically there all the same,they changed in 05 or o6 to stricter epa rules,carb and exhaust changed.your brake pedal should be taken off and greased maybe squirt some oil on it to free it up.be a good idea to change the brake fluid.https://sites.google.com/site/vstar1100kb/home/new-owner-must-do-list

Open the Pilot Mixture Screws about 1/8-1/4 turn and see if that helps. Run some Berryman's B-12 through the system mixed as specified on the can.

If that is an 07 with only 13,000 miles....I'm hoping you changed all the fluids and lubricated all of the control pivot points....as well as checked the date code on the tires (over 5 years old you need new ones). A bike that sits that much can have a hundred potential gremlins.

Now you're scaring me with my 08 I got with only 2400 miles...lol Well almost 2700 now :)
