Well, Welcome for sure Tyork!

No matter what year or size your vstar, I'm sure she is a fine ride, even if in need of some love.

Well.....if your not sure the year, engine size or other pertinent info...... I'm not sure how you 'rebuilt [the carbs] to no avail.' Do you know what carbs are on the bike (e.g. mikuni)? Do you know what size jets are in for the mains and pilots? Did you rebuild them or just clean them?

Either way, snap some pics and we'll help you figure it all out.
