Virago 535 gear change problem

Whenever I change gear the change is accompanied by a loud crunch, I have stripped the clutch and it looks perfect.the clutch does not bind and selecting bottom from stationery is ok. the only thing I have noticed is that to me the clutch is very heavy, although when the plates are removed the lever action is fine. any ideas?
This has been like this since I bought the bike 6months ago.

The crunch is the slider gear dogs engaging into a gear. Slower revs will lessen the impact of engaging. Good clutch springs is the heavy clutch. Be glad.

Starter engages while the motor is running


Hi, William the starter drive/Bendix/clutch is a mechanical gear driven component that engages the clutch pack ring gear to turn over the engine. It has an internal mechanism that allows the gear to turn in one direction and once the engine starts allows the drive gear to free spin. If gear free spins in both directions then the drive gear has failed, it is not serviceable and needs to be replaced.

I was riding my '94 Virago 535 when it made a loud whirring sound then the bike stalled and I was unable to start the bike again. When I press the starter button nothing happens except the headlight goes...


Yes, the starter clutches sometimes get stuck on those bikes.
Then the starter turns at very high speeds and get broken.
Remove the starter from the engine ( that's an easy job )
Hold the starter in a bankwrench and connect a 12V battery to it. If the starter turns, he is OK, if not, replace the starter and his clutch system.

Loud sound while engaging into gear..etc...


The clunk is normal for this bike ,it is a Virago .You can adjust the clutch but unless it sounds like it is slipping and is shifting fine I would leave it alone.If you think your bike is out of time , on the left side,kickstand side,there is a side cover and in the center of that cover are two plugs one above the other with a slot for a straight screw driver . one is a sight hole to check your time ane the other is to get to the flywheel bolt to line up your timing mark .When you look at the top of the back cylinder head you will see two allen bolts inside the cooling fins.You can take the vacuum hose off and the top of this head and in behind it is your timing gear .Turn the bolt in the center of the lower cover on the crank ane line it up with the T and you should be on top dead center , check the timing gear and the dot on the gear should be lined up with the arrow made into the flange of the inside of that head.If everything lines up you are in time on both cylinders.You can also hook a timing light up and check it.Oh by the way if you try to turn the crank bolt it turns clockwise and it will be easier to turn if you take out your spark plugs.I would check my fuel and see if it might be running rich (too much gas or float level)
