Question about Yamaha Xv 250 Virago S Motorcycles
I have a 2005 Virago. The choke cable has become disconnected in the carby body itself. The choke cable moves in and out. I have disconnected the cable at the handle bar end and pulled on the cable and it comes out. I pulled it out a few centimeters and pushed it back in. Can it become disconnected in the carby itself? I imagine there would be an end on it similar to the handle bar end. Its horrid to start on cold mornings with no choke. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

SOURCE: Suspected problem with choke.
hey apparently and did are two different stories draining the float bowls and cleaning the carbs are two different things the fact that the choke dosent change suggest the carbs are stopped up after sitting for 1 year clean the carbs let them soak in carb cleaner and blow them out with high pressure air, keep notes of the adjustments befor you dissasemble them (air screws)

Hard to diagnose, but if you have a bad engine vibration, you will be able to diagnose that when stopped and just revving up the engine. Moving balance problem can be easily out of true wheel and or needs balanced. (You can make your own balancer/ wheel true guage our of a couple of 8X8 posts with axle size hole drilled in each one) If you clonked a curb or pot hole at speed this can easily happen. Hope this helps you with your scoot, Rick

The problems with a plunger style choke happen when the rubber on the bottom becomes deformed and does not seal or the spring does not push the plunger down hard enough, or the cap breaks so the plunger is not pushed down hard enough. If you put your finger over the hole and the bike runs properly your bike is running on choke. You have to block the hole deep inside the carb to shut off the choke. I assume the original problem was that the bike would not idle .If this is the case, take the carb apart remove the slow jet and clean the jet and the carb body out so fuel will flow at idle. This should fix your no idle problem.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the info. The original problem was the bike would idle okay, but stall as soon as gas was applied, I suspected a gas flow problem. I shotgunned a bunch of things including new petcock value filter in tank, taking carb off and cleaning jets, float bowl, and various orifices, replaced intake manifold (thought it could be a vacuum leak from some cracks seen), plus some other things I'm probably forgetting. Each change seemed to fix problem for a while, but it would always return (problem was always intermittent). Recently I noticed just moving the choke cable (without changing choke setting) was causing bike idle to change, then it died hard and would not start again after I fiddled with cable a bit - tried ether, etc. Since it fired right up after taking choke cable off I ordered a new one, still waiting for it, hopefully that'll fix it. I couldn't find anyway to adjust choke cable though manual debug section claims it can mis-adjusted. If this still fails I'll probably take the carb off again and try cleaning again. Been an intermittent thorn in my side for a while now. Thanks for the suggestions!! "
