V Star 1100 jetting? 3 Years, 5 Months ago  
So I'm selling my 1100 to my hillbilly cuzzin and the bike really runs rough if it's sat for a while. It's fine after it warms up but that can take quite a while. It'll sit and idle but as soon as I hit the throttle it dies, or comes real close to it.

The only thing I added was a set of Cobra slip on drags. I really don't want to do a full jet kit but will if I have to. Also is this a sign of it running too rich or lean?

JBubbs, the 1100 has dual carbs. Unless you have a synchronizing guage, I wouldn't even attempt to rejet it. Put the Oem pipes back on and see if it runs better ...

Hello

I own a VStar 1100 with Bub pipes. You don't have to rejet. Balance your carbs. Adjust idle, make sure your plugs are ok, put a can of seafoam in the gas tank......that should cure your issue.

Check out the VStar forum the people over there are great. They even have instructions on how to make your own carb balancing tool.

Just click the top Webpage Tab and you will see their knowledge base which has everything you need to keep the Vstar 1100 running like a top.
