DoubleDelight write: Hi-on a fly by= Norty: I loved what you said! I love to bake and love to watch and participate in all things mechanical and electrical on bikes and cars, etc. I have a problem with the virago. It isn't starting. Changed out the battery, still not starting. I am going to check the fuses first. Simple fix. I know exactly what you said about'force'. Never. : ) I have already found someone to do the pin striping. Awesome work, low, low prices. bbl later to read more. DD
I know this post is older and by now you may have found out the Virago line has a problem with starters they burn out because they need to be shimmed Im not sure if that is your problem , but on the 750 v-twin the 920 and the 1100 they all have that problem . You can tell its a Virago just by hearing the starter engage . Good luck with it and Ride safe .
HI, I had a virago 1000, they only made that model for 2 years, the 535 is not quite the same motor, the bigger ones did have a prob with starter to gear clearances. make up a set of jumper cables and connect directly to starter, that will tell you if starter is good or is it in wiring...other culprits are often the kill, ignition and centerstand /sidestand safety lockouts....hope this helps. Viragos handle great due to monocque chassis design..engine is an integral part of frame,...goood luck! there is a 250 version still available, bigger ones got phased out as the stars came along
Norty, Doc is coming out to CA at christmas and will be helping me to get familiar with my Virago, still have to get it delivered! i haven't been home lately and hope to see it in my driveway on Monday...
Hmmm so what do I get when I make the Virago purr like a kitten???
