Re: 1983 XV920 Looking for parts list.

Thanks for those links! Sorry, I should have been more clear. I'm looking for a free PDF / download version (if such a thing exists). Not that I'm aware of in downloadable PDF format for your model Virago. But, I wouldn't totally rule that out. Taking some deep dives into the internet may net you s...

Re: PAINT CODE - 1996 XV1100S BLACK and WHITE

Same goes for us up here BJ.

We are coming in 5th for worst states having the most infected populations in the U.S.A.
Pretty much staying in until things improve.

You take care and stay well too my friend. Hope, the fires down there have gotten under control.

Re: 1983 XV920 Looking for parts list.

I've got the Clymer's and Hanes manuals from the docs section (which is awesome), but I'm looking for something similar to my Honda CB500 parts list, which shows every part on the bike, and an OEM part number that's easy to google. Is anyone aware of something like that? Does Yamaha publish parts l...

Re: 1983 XV750 Midnight Special [Into]

Hello! My name is Connor and I aquired my Virago about a year ago in a trade. (07 Ninja 250R) I'm happy with my end of the trade so far and am in the process of turning this bike into a Cafe Racer style bike. I've finished the front-end, keeping original fork tubes and slapped on some cheap clip-on...

Re: 1994 Virago 750 leaks oil after filter change

Located in Central VA. Purchased in July 2019. Driven 2200 miles so far. Fram CH6004 oil filter. Two Fram o-rings fit, one Fram o-ring didn't so I reused the old one. I replaced all three o-rings with Yamaha OEM after it leaked. Filter hole is facing outward toward cover. Torqued at 7.2 ft lbs. I d...

Re: '83 XV750 wiring issues [SOLVED]

I have an '83 750 that I am in the process of converting to Cafe style. I replaced the gauge cluster with a much smaller gauge (one of those ebay led gauges) and now I'm having issues wiring up the bike so it will still turn over. I think the issue may be with one of the many relays along the line ...

Re: 1994 Virago 750 leaks oil after filter change

My 94 Virago 750 started leaking oil on the muffler several trips after changing the oil and filter with aftermarket o-rings. The smoke caught my attention. I bought and installed three Yamaha OEM o-rings to resolve the problem. I notice I'm still getting some oil weeping on the muffler underneath ...

Re: 1993 XV750 Vacuum Diagram or advice on what goes where.

An update. Ordered 2 carb rebuild kits last week, comes in today. Was going to attempt to get some work done over the weekend but the sky pooped quite a bit of snow between thurs and fri so working outside over the weekend was out of the question. Sat and Sunday look alright out here for the coming...
