Question about 2005 Yamaha Xv 250 Virago S
I re-checked the part number and it is correct. It is routed correctly. But with the tension fully adjusted, there is no braking at all. I tried removing the rear compression spring but even after screwing the adjusting nut all the way in, there is still too much slack. What could I do?
Are you certain the routing is proper ... and no one has fooled with the lever on the wheel??? Both ends have a barrell fastener or does one end go through a split bolt? If split bolt, loosed the bolt and take up the slack there. ... or is this a direct connect through the foot petal?
Let me know ...

If I understand your problem correctly this may help. There should be a spring just a bit smaller diameter than the slide that mounts between the top of the slide and the bottom of the carb cap. No spring means no snap-back. I am assuming there are no kinks in the cable and the cable was routed correctly when installed. Lots of times if the cable is not routed properly the gas tank will "stretch" the cable when the tank is re-mounted. Route the cable properly and the problem goes away..... As far as the slack in the cable, there is a an adjusting screw on the top of the carb (where the cable ends) and an adjuster screw at the hand throttle also where the cable ends. Some bikes have an extra adjuster mid cable but I don't think yours does, (working from memory here). If none of the above work then my guess is that the parts counter handed you the wrong part.

SOURCE: Clutch will not disengage
Chances are the clutch lever assembly (where the cable attaches to the gearbox) has gotten out of position on the Axle push lever (the shaft that goes into the side cover and the lever is attached to). The shaft is splined for the lever to attach. Re-fit the lever on the shaft and try it now. If the splines are stripped then you may need to drill a 1/8" hole through the lever and shaft then insert a 1/8" cold roll split pin to anchor the two together.
The bottom of the axle shaft fits in the side cover and actuates a lever to separate the clutch plates. This mechanism could be bad.
If that is the case then get the entire COVER ASSEMBLY part number 5NY-15490-00. The assembly comes with a new shaft.
The clutch cover mount bolts should be 8 to 10 ft. lbs. This is not a factor in your problem.

Disconnect the clutch cable at the case then see if the there is any resistance in the clutch lever in-out movement. When the tank was remounted the cable may have gotten pinched or moved out of proper routing. If I understand correctly, prior to the frame painting the clutch was okay, but after the paint it was not, and the left and right side cases and clutch were not touched. Obviously you used the wrong brand of paint. The clutch would have been fine if you had used Krylon brand paint. Post a comment and let me know what you find.
