Re: 1995 XV1100 stumbling, failing at low RPM and popping

"Right now I'm fixing the starting motor (mine was terrible)" Eric, What seems to be the problem with your starter? What is it doing that doesn't seem to be normal? Once we get that taken care of first. Then we'll work on correcting the other issues. Well, I was riding the bike even with the flaws ...

Re: 1995 XV1100 stumbling, failing at low RPM and popping

Previous owner must have changed the retaining bolts for the carburetors from hex to Allen bolts. "The mechanic swore to me that he adjusted the valve clearance to the factory standard, but I no longer believe in him. Is it possible for the virago to have these types of stumbles because of poor reg...

Re: 1995 XV1100 stumbling, failing at low RPM and popping

Hope you get it all squared away man. I found it easier to just loosen those bolts (intake manifold) the ones that are hard to get to. The intake boot is slotted. Just loosen and turn the carbs clockwise. With a little jiggling should come off the intake boot. That is the way I did it. 1986 vx700. ...

Re: 1995 XV1100 stumbling, failing at low RPM and popping

Erick, FIRST: 1. Has this Virago been modified in anyway from its off the assembly line condition? like exhaust? 2. How did the bike run prior to the installation of the repair kits. 3. Where the carburetors cleaned thoroughly or just the installation of the repair kits. Were the wrong floats detec...

1995 XV1100 stumbling, failing at low RPM and popping [PROBLEM SOLVED]

Hello guys. I recently got a virago xv1100 1995. First of all I apologize for the quality of my english, I'm Brazilian. I really liked the bike, which is very rare here (here is very common the 250 and 535, but not 750 and even less the 1100). Where I live, only one mechanic has accepted service on ...
