SOURCE: not sure why my bike wont start
How long did the bike set un-used? After years, gasoline turns into varnish after evaporation of the aromatic hydrocarbons. I've actually seen a substance like molasses in all the carbs and the gas tank. Take a bowl off of a carb and see what you find. If it has gone to varnish, you will need to disassemble every component that gasoline touches as a liquid and re-build and clean out the gunk. (yes, gas tank too and the diverter valve) This is a common problem.

The rubber seals and fittings between the carbs and cylinder head get hard and brittle. They can develop small cracks and also loose the seal they had when new and pliable. This means that extra air gets into the air/fuel mix as it heads for the intake valves. The air that has not gone through the carbs leans the fuel mix and causes the high revs. The seals and fittings will need to be replaced. Dealers have parts in stock for 10 years. Your bike is 22 years old. Google yamaha virago 750 parts also Google vintage motorcycle parts. Babbitt's would be a good source if the '87 and '88 parts match up. They list an '88 and have all the parts in stock except one hose line.
Go to the site below where you can see a parts diagram for your specific bike. You will select the actual brand, year, model, etc., once you go to the site. Part numbers and prices are also shown. You can order parts from this site. In the event no price is shown on a particular part and/or the notation "Not Available" is in the description, the part is not in stock. www.babbittsonline.com/pages/parts/viewbybrandand/parts.aspx

This seems to be a common problem with viragos and it can also cause the transistor in the igniter unit to blow.I dont know the specific solution to this but maybe source out a reg/rectifier from somewhere else and not a genuine yamaha one ,although they may have made improvements on later models,try a forum for virago riders or ask a knowlegable yamaha guru like Tombones on this site...Mr Tombones...Are you out there ??.Can you help us out ??.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,
The description "...wont come on at all. it is as if the battery is not..." would indicate no electrical power, no lights even when switched on. Have you checked the main fuse along the red wire?
Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.
