Photos from Mel Axelrod's post — Yamaha V-Star riders

Think my mechanic screwed up. I bought the Barrons AIS removal kit. 2 aluminum plugs for the cylinder and a small rubber vacuum cap. Took the mechanic one and half hours and the bike is still backfiring as before. He said he totally disconnected the AIS device but it appears it wasn't removed and I don't know where the rubber cap goes so I don't know where he may have put it. All the brackets around the bike were removed. He did plug the holes in the cylinders with the supplies plugs. He had to remove the right side floor board, frame, tank. I have attached two photos. Can someone help?

    New bearings and spacers — Yamaha YZ250 2-stroke

    New bearings and spacers...

    Bought a few spare parts while I had money months back. So thankfull. Lol. My linkage and wheels are still nice and tight so I don't think I'll be swapping soon.

    I got a spare 85 Kx250 n my yard that seams to have parts that fit my 98 yz. Like the bars, chain, cables, hoses, spacers, hardware, pegs, front brake, exhaust springs, chain guide. All fit. I'm using kayaba SSS forks with Kawasaki clamps an bars, kx250 chain, throttle cable an throttle, bark busters, choke knob off a RM125, lol. Frankenstein bike. It's a yamsuzuski now.

      Old fart on a motorbike blog. Day 3 — Yamaha YZF R125 Official Page 2016

      Old fart on a motorbike blog...Day 3

      So...the day started well with a forecast of "Overcast with occasional showers", so I thought I would wrap up and ride the new girl to work.

      All started well....a little drizzle on the way to work, then nothing until mid morning. Unfortunately at this point the heavens opened a my new bird was sat looking miserable in the rain (note to self, get a cover for work). As I was about to leave to scoot across town at around midday, it stopped raining...result I thought! Didn't last long, chucked it down and blew a hoolie all the back to the office....but at least I stayed dry and was able to practice my filtering skills.

      So, home time came and all looked well, just a little drizzle, or at least it was until I threw my leg over her....then it decided to chuck it down again....was I downhearted?....actually No! I was dry, and I was on 2 wheels.

      So just sat here now having a cuppa, then I'll go and dry her off and put her to bed.

          • Due to a backache I had to leave my 'Darling' parked at work yesterday. Will try and repatriate her asap and will then post a photo of what I'm talking about, Kostas.

          • Kostas (and all others that might be interested), here's the photo that I promised. As it is such a dark shot I tried to make it visable by adjusting the camera, so the rest of the photo is WAAAAAY too bright. I was talking about the space between the red hugger and the rear tire. Now (on the photo) I have a 170/60 17 Pirelli Angel, but I was wondering if a 180 would also fit. The screws are not the problem. It's the whidest part of the tire that might touch the hugger on the inside.

          but i am curious on the cams. if i stroke it do i want to do stage 2 ? i heard they fail and not as impressive as just doing a stage 1.

          then also. when i jump up the bikes bore and stroke. what oil will be best to use ? should i run a 20w50 oil or ? ?

          i found a company that sells full engine rebuild for these hot cams hot rods all of it. on max performance. its hot rods kit. anyone else bought this kit for 850$ ?

At night if you have high beam on you could be responsible for blinding an on coming vehicle and causing an accident, there is a reason for high and low beams, you wouldnt like it if people were doing it to you, so dont do it to others,,

          • Tuning should be done by what the spark plug looks like and how it runs and not by whether the pipe glows or not.

          • Check your mixer setting looks like you to lean or exhaust blockage.

          • I've been an avid gear head for well over 40 year built every thing from go carts to heavy built V8 drag motors. 91 octane is a perfect grade of gas for best performance. In any engine because it burns cleaner, Mitch less carb problems, cooler running engine. My 1989 warrier from after I pick it up had to clean carb because the original owner ran 87. After clean started running 91 or higher and after that quad ran so much better. You might want to check your slide needleay be set to low or main jet is a little plugged.

          So some updates — YAMAHA PICS MODIFICATIONS

          So, some updates...

          The paint job on my coil cover and belt cover are holding up well. The process of plastic primer + 6 coats of flat engine enamel has worked. Stay tuned for more on that.

          My Fi2000 seems to have finally figured out my PowerFlo and the bike is back to running well (after a period of a very few seeming random stalls). I am a fan - it looks good and seems to add just a touch more power. Definitely the biggest difference was from the Cobra Exhaust I put on last year with the Fi2000. If you are getting the intake for more power, I am not sure it was worth the price for just that, but if you want to get rid of the big, ugly piece of chrome on the right side (the intake box) and get a little more power - definitely worth it. I am averaging around 42-44 MPG (down from 49 or so with stock).

          Purchased a Wolo Big Bad Max. Could not figure out a good place to mount it, so have ordered the slightly smaller Bad Boy. Hopefully I can figure out a good mounting point (I hope the stock mount point ;-) ) for that one.

          Replaced the O-Rings on the hard bags (I have a 950 T) - removed the sticking locks problem. I can now see why they stick - Yamaha had a bad design in the stock O-Rings - they are grooved and will eventually jam in the lock. Simply replace with a regular O-Ring that will fit on the lock and inside the mounting plate - problem solved.

          Hopefully this will be helpful to the group.

              Ok need a little help here. I started to ride my 03 1100 classic to work this morning. I started the bike using my choke while starting. It started right up, left the choke on and when in side to get ready. The bike died on its own. Came back out restarted fine. So left the house and got about a mile and it died. Would not restart, almost killed the battery trying. After about 30 minutes of trying it did start, but was back firing and when I let off the gas it would just die. Again very hard to restart. Needless to say I didn't ride it to work. Rode the Harley instead. Any ideals would be helpful. By the way it has a hyper charger on it to.

                Been doom a lot of reading, my Kiehin carb runs off the pilot for 1/4 and needle jet runs from 1/4-3/4 throttle....

                The low end boggin can be fixed by leaning out the needle (go up a clip) and not nessacerly the pilot. Unless u also have starting issues...

                I'm still running just the slightest bit rich, is it possible to harm a engine by goin up a clip on the needle Darryl Haney?

                %d comments
                • Granting all is well, inlcuding what Darryl has suggested like checking of your reed petals whether they're seated well, try not to go any leaner Jacob, as i see you are more of a WOT guy and i doubt that your cylinder head runs in tight or corrected squish clearance anyway..... If your squish clearance is "wide" or "not corrected" then you're prone to pre-detonation at loads, hence that tad richness or slightly being rich is your assurance to your engine.

                  If there is a consolation or comparison i can relate to you is my own jetting - I'm also leaned out to 45 pilot and 172 main from the stock 50 pilot and 178 main. The setting is adopted for 35-deg to 40-deg Celsius and for a not so high altitude trailriding, about 500 to 600 metres or 2000 ft. My plug is still a bit rich but you can already see the brownish burn, just not so rustic brown as idealised. But I'm fine by that a li'l richness for my squish clearance is also "uncorrected". I'm not a WOT guy where most of the time I just lug the engine when going up the hill. Sometimes you also jet for the way you ride your bike.... You may even need to go up 1 size on the main if you're a WOT guy. And if you can manage don't go too lean on your pilot. You can only go leaner up to a point that you don't want re-detonation at loads. Your 1999 YZ does not also have a "power jet" unlike the 1999 to present YZ250's. You need that bit of richness as insurance for your engine Jake!

                • .... Sorry Jacob, that is pre-detonation not "re-detonation" and your YZ is model 1998 rather. sorry for the typo error

                • Hey also if you do lean out the pilot and the motor starts to surge it's too lean just fyi

                  • Ok so I changed the main jet to 145 and synced the carbs. The mix screw 2.5 turns. Bike idles awesome now but the right side exhaust is cool and the left side is hot. Same with the cylinder right side cool left hot. Is that a timing issue?

                  • Start from the being here. Have you done any internal work or changed to Pma or changed to elect ignition? These things don't normally just happen overnight something had to have caused this

                  • If the right side is cool its prolly a valve coz it aint fireing had the same with my xs but not saying same for you....just a thought!!

And, there's only $12 worth of parts...

                  • I never bother my ass, no matter how many adds they put on tv it will still never make car drivers more aware of bikes, 20 secs after the add has been on tv the people forget about it. Saying that, there are a lot of dicks out there on bikes which often give the general public a false impression of bike riders. The idiots I see riding in shorts, vest tops and trainers in summer is pathetic, also the nut jobs you see splitting lanes at 100K on a freeway, it is no wonder that car drivers often hate bike riders. How many times have you been driving a car etc and suddenly a bike passes you at a great speed coming from nowhere... These are the assholes who give us a bad name and we wonder why some car drivers never give way to us. The min the TAC or vic roads does an add about riders speeding or driving dangerously, we hear bike people shouting about it from the rooftops, "why do they always pick on us? it is the car drivers at fault, they never look" but in reality there are many bikers out there that are idiots and thats why we see adds blaming bike riders. As a community we need to show we are not idiots and that we are actually professional riders,,,, well for most of the time ;)

                  • Very good point dan.

                    It's amusing though that think rider, think bike style ads were being made by the TAC when the CEO was a motorcyclist.

                    Then when the new guy who didn't ride took over, the onus was on the rider..

                    Take for example this ad they made back in 2012 that had the Australian riding community in an uproar & sparked an inquiry into rider safety.


                    Also, bear in mind that this ad was actually filmed in a 70kmh zone.

                    'The ride' series of ads was TAC & Vic roads attempt to appease us with less inflammatory adverts.

                  • This is the closest TAC have come to a 'think biker, think bike' ad it's from the early 2000's

                  • They will only really help at low speed drops, but IMO worth it to save the potential cracks/scratches if we drop. And most people will drop at least once.

                  • I went down last year at about 60 mph. This is the damage I really wish I had frame sliders...

                  • I'm really torn about this. I dropped mine in a parking lot after hitting a gravel patch. Man was I pissed the fuck off but it bent the peg (nice excuse to get aftermarket ones), dinged the front faring, scratched the bar end, scratched the mirror end, and scratched those black intake looking pieces. Frame slider would not have prevented any of that from happening. I just figure in the event of a high speed crash, they won't be saving anything that wouldn't already have been fucked up with the exception of the engine. To be honest, in a high speed crash, I give 2 fucks about the bike. I just want to live. I may get frame sliders one day, but I'll invest in better gear first.

                  • Short

                  • Well with any exhaust change or air intake change u have the re jet the carbs. The problem is that u are getting more air then fuel. The fuel to air mixture will be messed up and the back pressure is greater with no baffles. My advice is put in the stage 1 jet kit and re tune ur carbs. I have cobra straight pipes and the stage 1 jet kit and did not remove the ais system. This is the easiest thing I can tell u to do.

                  • Well thank you all for all the help

                  Hello, A question about a 2002 Yamaha V Star 1100.

                  I have had it for less than a year, when I got it had 20,000 miles on it I took it to the mechanic and he did a full tune up, now it has 28000 and I have done 2 oil changes one filter change, I was on a long ride the other day about 60 miles stopped for coffee, about 15 min when I got back to start the bike it did not started right away and I got a faint smell of gas, I tried a couple of times and it did started, the next day it did the same thing, but the initial start up in the morning is good..any pointers.

                    • Cosmetically it really cleans up the engine. Also supposed to reduce popping with aftermarket or gutted pipes. Super easy project

                    • Tried this with my old 650,but got rid of the snap,crackle,and pop by just having the carbs re adjusted.Who ever done the V&H said they had re jetted which turned out not to be true so had it re jetted and put in a K&N air filter run great.Wish I had kept it.A 1000 mile trip on the 650 versus on my 1100 the 650 kept up with the bigger bikes and I was not tired,of course I am old.

                    Selling my '78 XS650 Bobber. I built this bike in 10 months starting with a low mileage Special. Bike has just below 8000 miles on it as of now, I'm still riding it. I used a Tc Bros hardtail, their electrics tank and battery box. All work was done by me from fab to paint. I work at a shop with all the proper tools and equipment to do this in. The carbs have been cleaned and rebuilt using new floats and new seals.I also re jetted the carb's to match the pipes and open filters.Installed a Pamco Ignition. Top end was resealed and a new Yamaha cam chain guide was installed. New tires and a one year old battery.New fuel petcock installed in the clean late model Sportster tank. New LePera seat with 4" springs. New front brake master,rebuilt calipers along with new braided hoses front and rear. Comes with a manual, engine stand and a few extra parts. The bike runs and sounds great! It gets a lot of looks. Have a clean title in hand. Hate to sell,but I don't have the room for two.

                    I'm selling because I want a cruiser project now. No rides without Cash in hand!$3750 obo. Located in Abilene,Kansas.

                    • Thank you

                    • What you have sounds like a 2 stroke running lean. This will cause a high idle and the bog off of idle. It will also cause damage to the cylinder if you ride it like that.

                      If it was running ok before, and it has only just started doing it now, you most likely have an air leak in the intake, or a bad base gasket or crankshaft seal. to test if you have an air leak or a bad base gasket, start the bike and let it idle and spray WD-40 on areas you think could be leaking, such as:

                      The intake boot between the carb and the engine

                      The base gasket (between the cylinder and the crank case)

                      the reed block area

                      When your bike idles down to normal, you are spraying on the leak. Replace or tighten the leaky part and it should get better.

                      If it doesn't Idle down it could be a dirty carb (something in the jet) or a crankshaft seal.
