  • 06 roadstar problems

    So since I've bought the bike last year I've noticed a few issues. The previous owner rejetted the carb for the cobra long shotgun exhaust. When I pull the choke out the bike won't fire up it only starts with the choke pushed in? And sometimes it's a pain to start. Also every once in awhile it will backfire out of the carb. It happens very rarely but definitely something I want to address. I was hoping someone might have the answer to what might be going on. Thanks

    It sounds like the carb is getting too much fuel, hence the carb backfire. When you pull the choke out it just floods it. That makes me think that the ports on the jets are too big. Do you have an aftermarket air intake? Do you know the size of the jets that are installed? For now, try adjusting the PMS screw located on the back side bottom of the carb. Screw it all the way in until it stops, then back it out 2 1/2 turns. That might help until you can either identify or replace the jets.

      I'm not sure on the jet size. It does have an aftermarket arlen ness air intake.

        If you have the air intake and no baffles on the pipes, your jets can’t be too big unless they were completely sized wrong to begin with. It wouldn’t hurt to just install new jets, get the Baron kit as it comes with all the sizes you would need. Replace the needle too. Just make sure that when you reinstall the bowl, the float moves freely.

          we need to know what jets are in there now before any other legitimate advice can be given.

            I'm going to try and ask the previous owner if he remembers. If not any good suggestions on some kits. Also how hard of a job is it to swap everything around?

              Sounds like what happened to me. Float level was too high would start without choke, lowered worked great. Maybe worth a look when you confirm jet sizes.
