Re: 19XX? XV535 Carb drain plugs (U.K.) (Suggested Fix) (CLOSED)

Sam,
It may be possible to drill into it and place a small diameter piece of brass tubing into it providing the means to be able to check float height then. Unfortunately, carburetors may need to be removed to do this.

Thx Joe! this should work.

I'm in the middle of plum season now: got about 250lbs of plums on the tree that need some sugar and heat to last me till next June. When the plum wave is over I'll get into this. I'll report back on how it worked.
Yarek,

Did the fix work?

Re: 19XX? Virago 535 (Falkland islands)

Sim,

You will also need the 17 character VIN (Vehicle Identification number) from the Steering Neck of the bike.

Help determine year by Vin number *3LP-001639* & *2EM-000121*

Re: 1984 XV700 Float issue (Ohio)

I caught the little rascal. It is as I thought. When the carbs are in correct position, the needles are falling out far enough to get cocked on the float tab. Managed pics this time. Capy, I would start over with New Floats, New Needles and New Seats. Something isn't right with your current parts m...
