Re: 1992 Yamaha Virago 750 no fuel getting to carbs (Gulf Coast of Mississippi)

Comrad, I have reread this topic from top to bottom. Carburetors Initially you said: I recently rebuilt the carburetors. Then in your last response you say: I had someone rebuild both carburetors. So, if the carburetors were rebuilt. Why are they so filthy and appear to have never been off the bike ...

Re: 1982 XV920 Oil Pump Chain Slack (Ohio) (CLOSED)

Hello, Back again. I've been doing some work on the bike while it's cold out. This morning I started digging into a bendix clip install. A day or two ago I read about someone replacing the chain for thier oil pump because it was very slack. I decided to see how slack my chain was while the case was...

Re: WILL A 750 SEAT FIT A 535

I'm thinking of leaving that idea, lol but I'm not sure if I have a problem or not....... The 535 is a Bobber as it was when I took it on, there was a rear pilliom seat that came with it however there seems to be nothing to attach it to. Now call me thick but I've never had a cruiser before and loo...

Re: WILL A 750 SEAT FIT A 535

Hi all hope someone know the answer.....will an aftermarket XV750 seat fit a XV535? Herby, Some Virago parts are interchangeable from model to model. But, there are exceptions also. What model year XV750 seat and what XV535 seating configuration? Here's a picture of a 1988 XV535 with a one piece se...

Re: 1992 Yamaha Virago 750 no fuel getting to carbs (Gulf Coast of Mississippi)

Comrad23, The exposure setting on your phone must be set too high. Set it lower and it should work. We need to know a little history on your bike. 1. How long have you had this bike? Is it a new to you acquisition? 2. Has it been sitting for a long period like in storage? If so, how long? 3. What do...

Re: 1992 Yamaha Virago 750 no fuel getting to carbs (Gulf Coast of Mississippi)

It says the file is too big. I'm going to order the correct tank. And a new carburetor. Unfortunately I can't find any 92 virago 750 carburetors. All I'm seeing is 81-83. Are there any aftermarket carburetors for that year make and model? I've also called my local motorcycle shop and they said that...

Re: 1983 XV500 Fuel Lines Routing

Angus, I had to leave yesterday unexpectedly and wasn't able to look at the above posted video until this morning. Looks like you are missing the heart of the matter. The fuel pump. The item that the hoses attach to first and then to the carburetors. He also indicates that he doesn't like that fuel ...
