Yamaha 1100 VStar Will Idle but won’t take fuel

Hello I have a 2000 yamaha 1100 V star. The bike has set for 4 year’s It was running great before it was put away but now it just won’t take fuel when you try to open the throttle. At first it wouldn’t run But after cleaning the carbs and putting new gas in it the bike will start and idle just fine but when I twist the throttle it dies any ideal whats going on here? Thanks for any help at all.

Hi James –

Sounds like your carbs are still dirty. Either that or you have an air leak around the manifolds.

Are you positive all passageways in the carbs were cleaned thoroughly? Did you verify everything was clean by holding the jets to a light to look through them? And pass air or fluid through all the cast passageways?

Is your air filter in good shape? A clogged up air filter can cause that problem as well.

  1. The first thing I would suggest is a tghuoroh search of the RV to determine if a field animal got into the vehicle. A dead mammal reeks and it is a very strong smell that won’t go away, even with an airing out. After you have made sure that is not the problem, I would suggest two main steps that are quite easy to accomplish. Additionally, there are some optional steps should you require an all out attack on odor.1. Go to home improvement store and buy product called “Damp Rid.” This is one product that truly delivers. Use it as directed and you will be amazed to find it soaks up humidity, dampness and odors. (I use it in my teenager’s closets and any place that remains closed to air circulation.)2. Place some bowls of white vinegar througout the RV for a few days. Ignore the vinegar smell, as it will dissipate eventually, along with the odors. After a few days, air out the RV and you should find the air smells much cleaners. (Someone suggested this treatment would rid a house of fish smells after cooking, and it works REMARKABLY well for fish or any other stinky smell.)3. You may want to sprinkle some baking soda over the carpet and on the bedding, and chairs to tackle left over odors.4. Spray “Oust” spray or Lysol disenfectant spray throughout.If all else fails, hire a pest control person to search (for an up-front agreed upon price) for dead rodents. Good luck!
