Time to rebuild that VSTAR 1100 carburetor? Don’t need the jets?
K&L Supply / TourMax has a basic rebuild kit to replace the o-rings and float needle valve assembly. K&L, the manufacturer lists the applications as 1999-2006 however parts.wiki has extended the model application years to 1999-2009. This includes all model variations including California and 49 state models; V Star 1100 Classic, Custom, Silverado and Midnight Custom.
Each kit rebuilds one stock carburetor, front (5EL-14902-40-00) or rear (5EL-14901-40-00) unit. Kits include the float bowl gasket, float needle valve, float needle valve seat and o-ring as well as other small o-rings in the carburetor. The kit DOES NOT include a new filter mesh screen. One parts.wiki retail source has informed us they sell hundreds of these kits a year. The high sales volume can be attributed to customers frequently needing to replace the float needle valve due to modern fuel containing ethanol. As with all K&L – TourMax kits, these are quality units made in Japan. K&L # 18-5192, TourMax # KLY-21 is the part number offered. We’ll be documenting the Air Cut-Off Valve, Intake Manifolds, and Fuel Pump Assembly offered by K&L/Tourmax for this model as well, so stay tuned.
