Hey everybody. Just joined the forum yesterday, and figured out how to post a message. I'm the new owner of an 05 V-star 1100 classic, which just arrived in my driveway via truck on Monday night. You can imagine my disappointment when i tried to go for a ride and it wouldn't run. More on this later, just wanted to say hello to everybody.

Cheers,
Rob

Welcome to the insanity :D

Did you get the start issue sorted yet?

Yep, bike has probably been ridden about 15 miles in the last 2 years. Tore into the carbs, and cleaned out lots of chunks of gel. 3 of the jets were completely blocked. It was my first time ever inside a carburetor, so I was concerned I would screw something up, but they went back together with no parts left over! Got everything back together and crossed my fingers while I hit the start button, and EUREKA! Good to go.

Nicely done :) Now where are those photos? You are supposed to take pics as you open/clean/close her up and post those too.... :p
