SOURCE: The battery on my 1995 Yamaha Virago 250cc is not working

starter brushes could be worn out or a dirty or loose connection!
Starter button may need checking also the solenoid
week compressin or leaking diaphrams in carbs will cause it too
I suggest you charge battery & start at the button & work your way back

SOURCE: i have an 82xj650 with a new battery that dead after hour of ride

Yep. Have you tried to use slow charger on your battery to revive it again. Check your charging system because nothing comes in but all goes out.

1995 Yamaha Virago XV 1100 cuts out while riding


Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
3. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and module.
5. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting/leaking, spark plug cable connections loose check for spark leakage in the dark.
6. Faulty ignition coil or electronic control module.
7. Faulty CKP, CMP, or BAS sensor.
8. Faulty ignition switch.
9. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
10. Security alarm failing to disarm needs reset

I have an 87 virago 1000cc I know I need to sync the carbs but why do I lose power when I have it idling to warm it up before I ride? I have it plugged up to a battery charger when I don't ride for a while...


Have your battery checked. If it's good, have the charging output checked. The smoke from the top pipe may be fuel or oil. If it's blue, it's oil. If it's black, it's fuel.

Problem with my fzr after first ride in the morning iit wants to die wen taking off an most of the time it will then start it an it wont rev if let throttle go it will die


I'll tell you why. It is cold natured. I have a 89' Virago, and it doesn't like going anywhere till' it is warmed up. I usually just set the choke up a bit for about 5 minutes, and then hop on and go.

My Yamaha Virago runs great till the battery dies. I've replaced the battery a couple times, the bike just doesn't keep it charged. I've heard "replace the rectifier regulator" and did that 2 or 3 times....


Sounds like you need to monitor what's going on at the battery. Hook up a volt meter to see if it's charging. Check and clean all connections / plugs. Check connections at key switch. Look over all wiring for shorts or broken wire. Disconnect everything but motor wiring to narrow down the problem. Starter drains battery faster than it can recharge.........
A dead battery will mess up a charging system and a bad charging system will kill a battery.

Virago left on PRI and now won't start...


Check your oil level. If your carburetor overflowed and filled the engine with gas you may have fowled your air filter with oil/gas. If your level is too high you will have to change you oil. Also check your air filter to make sure is is not gas/oil fowled it may need changing.

Have 1983 Yamaha Virago 550. Won't maintain charge??


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand, even if the the stator / charging coil is defective or for that matter even the regulator, the bike should start and run on a fully charged battery. The only problem would be that the bike would die eventually. If haven't been tried, have the battery load tested not just voltmeter test.

Please postback after the load test. Hopefully by then, I would have the wiring diagram.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.
