Yamaha Virago Cutting out in the wet

My Virago xv125s keeps cutting out whenever it rains! In the dry its perfect. Thought it was carb at first but mechanic has checked that and filters and leads and sparks and cannot find anything wrong even after complete service.

Hi,

I had the same problem with mine. Its a dodgy ignition coil i found a spray of wd40 on it would fix it for a while by driving out the moisture. I've since put a piece of plastic bag around it which helps alot. Should really give in and buy a new coil though

This happened to me when water used to get to my battery, this was due to poor fairing design, however i recently customised the battery housing , its now water proof and ive also gone around all the male/female connectors i could find and water proofed them with electrical tape just to be safe. Ive since ridden in the rain with no problems.

1998 XV Virago 125 doesnt like the rain.


Ok on a dry day take a spray bottle with water in it and spray different areas on the bike like the plug ends - coils- fuse box- handel bar switches- Any where there is a connection. Even dehind the head light where the wires go in. You are haveing a moisture problem getting in and shorting the egishion system.

YAMAHA CYGNUS X CUTTING OUT


Happened to mine as well. Took 3 or 4 visits to the dealer before it finally happened when they were test driving, as before they did not believe me and thought i was running out of fuel! Turns out the fuel pump was faulty and was replaced with unit of different spec as the original type pumps were overheating and cutting out. The pump would work again when it had cooled down. The new different spec pump has worked fixed everything and now the scooter has not missed a beat. This should be fixed under warranty.
