Re: 1983 Yamaha xv920 virago carb help (Springs Popped Out) (Florida) (SOLVED)

I’m located in Florida and I thought they might have come from the pilot adjustment screws but wasn’t sure and every disassembly video doesn’t show the springs so far that I’ve found. You may want to reread the Virago Hitachi Carburetors article below especially under Hitachi Carburetor Versions 2 ...

Re: 1983 Yamaha xv920 virago carb help (Springs Popped Out) (Florida) (SOLVED)

Okay awesome yes they fit over perfectly but just okay wanted to make 100% sure The diagram in the Hitachi Article above confirms that is where they go. They had to be physically removed from the screws, during Carburetor rebuild. Any screw that requires to be a settings screw will have a spring as...

Re: 1983 Yamaha xv920 virago carb help (Springs Popped Out) (Florida) (SOLVED)

I’m located in Florida and I thought they might have come from the pilot adjustment screws but wasn’t sure and every disassembly video doesn’t show the springs so far that I’ve found. The springs are what holds the screws settings in place. Otherwise they can vibrate out of adjustment. See if the s...

Re: 1985 xv700 fuel overflowing through carb (float issue)

I have an issue where one of my carbs overflows with fuel. The needles on each set properly, it's an issue with the floats. I swap floats, the other carb is now the one to leak I have each float set to 18-19mm. I have tested both in water and they both float exactly the same, no air bubbles. I shak...

Re: 1996 XV535 Dies after half a mile (Salem OR) (Work-In-Progress) (CLOSED SEMI-SOLVED)

EFFFFFF! What are the negative side effects associated with NOT running one? Seeing that the 535 have an inline fuel filter also? The Stand pipes are what the Petcock Reserve fuel system uses to meter the fuel to signal you when to switch the throttle switch cluster from "ON" to "RES" to start usin...

Re: 1996 XV535 Dies after half a mile (Work-In-Progress) (Salem OR) (CLOSED SEMI-SOLVED)

Now another problem. It looks as though one of the fuel filters (fuel towers) broke off in my tank. I was able to remove it, but I do not see JUST that piece available for purchase. 2 questions: 1. can you help me find it? 2. If it is not for sale, any "neat" ways to make one work? petcock filter.p...

Re: 1999 XV535 Replaced carb diaphragms, now runs rough low revs (Sweden) (SOLVED)

Ok, all sorted. I reinstalled the diaphragms by smearing a little silicone sealant in the groove just to hold it in place long enough to put the covers on. Trouble is, it was still running rough at the low end. So I dismantled the carb slider again and consulted the diagrams online... Turns out tha...

Re: 1987 XV1000 Need help with weird sound from engine (Norge, Norway)

Thank you. I have listened with a mechanics stethoscope around the engine, but I can not tell where the sound is coming from. I hear it best when putting the stetcoscope on the exhaust pipes just outside the cylinders, but I guess thats because of the pipes being hollow and amplifiing the sound. An...
