does it run better with the choke on? Then it is the carbs, they need to be cleaned...

If nothing changes with the choke something is wrong right there. Either the cable is not connected or it's stuck. Keep in mind that it's not really a choke as we normally think of it but an enrichment circuit. It doesn't limit the air intake, it increases the fuel. In any case if it doesn't change anything it isn't working as it should,if at all.

Choke is working It gives me fast idle. So not that.

The only thing I can think it may be is.

1.  TPS ?  but no check engine light.

2.  slides not opening right

3.?

I have a customers 1100 on the bench now. She rode it here just out of winter storage, the plugs were very sooted up . I assume she started it up several times when stored.  I cleaned the plugs and it fired right up ,no poping or banging steady idle and carburated cleanly. She had the problem last summer too. This time I will try going one step hotter on the plugs .Oh yeah, stock intake and pipes.

Update I put pod air filters on and now it will take the throttle.So fixed that problem.

now idle speed kept changing and will backfire and punk 1 out of 10 take-offs from a stop .

don't know what to try next.

would a leaner main jet help this? has 150 main jets

may be a coil or spark problem?

plugs 8 months old

2005 1100 v star 

set up for pod. all stock 

150 mains carbs clean and synced ,

only one washer under needle says it needs two trying it with one.

117.5 pilot jet

stock exhaust

150's sound a bit rich for stock exhaust. What's the plugs look like after a rider. Also check the carb holders for air leaks. I usually just reseal them with Yamabond 4.

Where do the intake normally leak at the o-rings? I got new intakes with o rings one will replace them and try a lower jets I got 147.5 and 145 that's all they had. and will try 2 washers under needle . I have only one now.

The last time I checked for leaks with starter fluid I had a small fire. so did not check any more. lol

thanks for the input we try that and let you know.
