Re: 1984 Virago 1000 dies after riding awhile

Welllllll.... fixed the issue.... After testing the battery, which there were no issues. And replacing the stator. I still had issues. So I checked the rectifier, that worked as it's supposed to. Ended up tearing apart the carb again, third time mind you, cleaned it again. The intake had a huge amou...

Re: 1984 Virago 1000 dies after riding awhile

My apologies. Yes it is a 84 xv1000! I am using an agm type battery that was recommended by a local shop. Right now it's back on the trickle charger, but it's taking a very long time to charge. I did try taking it out for a ride earlier but only managed to get about .2 miles from home before it shut...

Also tried taking it for a ride this morning to try to convince the gear to cooperate, but that didn't work either. Just waiting on ...

1984 XV1000 not shifting "CLOSED" No Response

Hello. I had the common starter issue, plus a couple of others. But recently I have not been able to shift the bike into neutral. I can shift it into "a" gear, but I don't know which one it is. The clutch lever and actuator are nice and firm, but it doesn't allow me to shift to any gear but a "neutr...
