Help!!! I am not a novice but I am stumped, I purchased a 2007 V Star 1100 Classic. When I looked at the bike it was popping and the number 2 pipe had bluing. it still had power and throttled up nice with some deaccelerate popping. The bike had after market Cobra pipes, and figured it was a carburation issue or vacuum. I drove the bike for about a week and out of no where it started bogging down and losing power. I rebuilt and cleaned the carburetors and cleaned and secured all vacuum lines. The carbs were bad and after rebuilding them out the popping went away and the idle is fine. but the bogging and loss of power was still there. when I throttle it up all the way in neutral, when it hits full throttle the RPMS goes up and down.
So after I was finished I went to start it and the starter clutch went out, So I installed the new upgraded Yamaha starter clutch, All repair parts are OEM parts. The only thing I have not done yet was changed out the fuel pump but the fuel filter has been changed out. I have never had a bike do this before and I grew up on them and have always done my own work. I am almost think it can be electrical or not enough fuel pressure to keep a consistent gas flow.
Has anyone ever had this problem with a V star?? I never had an issue one with my 2005 V star, but I have read the 2007 does have some factory issues mainly the starter clutch.
Thank y'all in advance for any feedback.
