SOURCE: 2nd gear does not work on my Yamaha Virago xv250

Sounds like a slightly bent shift fork. The slider gear isn't quite engaging into 2nd. If the bend gets worse then you won't get into first and the pedal will get real stiff in those gears. The repair is best done in the shop.

Please rate this solution. Thanks!

SOURCE: Bike is sputtering in high 2nd/3rd gear, best kind in idle

Sounds like a lean condition. Spark plug should be a tan brown.
I would say the carb probably wasn't drained prior to storage and your main jet is gummed up. Gas deteriorates very quickly especially in vented containers like the float bowl of a carb.
clean your carb for sure.

SOURCE: how do you remove the seat ?? on a pw80 yamaha

There should be two bolts/ one per side on the rear side panels. The should be about 10mm and they hold the side panels and the rear of the seat to the frame. Remove those two bolts, and then slide your seat rearward, because there is a plastic tab that holds the seat to the gas tank. Installation is reverse. Slide fwd, install bolts. Good Luck.22

SOURCE: I can not shift out of 1st and 2nd

Sounds like a bent shift fork of broken dog gear. Try cleaning the inside of trans with part light oil and solvent. (not fuel) Rock bike a few times and shift gears, Do not start. Keep doing so untill shifting gets easier. If this does not work. Try starting it one time and shift easy. Do not force. Still no luck - Split cases and repair

Sputtering at 5000 rpm


AT 5000 RPM? What is the redline on the XT 600? I had a XT 500 Do not remember my year exactly, I was thinking the redline was close to 5000 RPM and if that is the case you could be possibly hitting a REV limiter or floating the valves.
Have you adjusted or checked the Valve clearance lately along with the Timing chain tensioner to be sure all are within adjustment specs?
The example you gave where it does it in 2nd gear, 3rd gear, I am sure it would do it in any gear as it sounds exactly as if teh engine is running up against a rev limiter or mechanical limits of teh valve train.

The car is sputtering at high rpm


Hello, I would change the fuel filter especially if it's never been changed to your knowledge and if the car runs great up untill 4200rpms. If the filter is starting to plug then it will fell boggy and possibly jerky because the motor is being starved for fuel.
