Hello, Check and make sure that battery has a full charge of at least 12.5 volts. If not Charge battery to that level. Next check all Grounds good to be sure not loose or corroded. If Battery is Ok and holds a charge and has been checked for a dead Cell and wiring is good Discounect the Wire going to starter and check the voltage it is getting when pushing the starter button. If getting 12 volts or higher then the Starter is the problem. If you get less than 12 volts or non at all the Starter Relay is bad! Replace it! To check the Starter before replacing it run a direct hot wire to the connection at the starter from a good hot battery! If it does Nothing then the starter is in need of work or replacement! First check out the starter brushes . Most of the time the problem is worn out brushes! If that is not the problem then it is either the rotor (Armature) or field coils in starter. REPLACE THE Starter! Hope that helps! NOTE: When running the direct hot wire from battery to starter make sure the bike is in Neutral and switch off! You do not want it the leave home without you! LOL!!

Battery - why would you think the spark plugs have anything to do with the engine turning over?
The clicking is the starter solenoid... not enough juice to spin her over.

1994Yamaha Virago 535 Starts and runs but it cuts off when I turn the choke off.


There is possibly some dirt blocking the main jet supply or the float level has somehow dropped and the engine needs the extra suction to draw enough fuel in to keep running and it is supplementing this extra supply through the idle jets.

Yamaha virago 535 turn ignition on neutral light is flashing and there is a clicking noise coming from the electrical system bike wont start


These are known for starter problems... The clicking you hear is the relay but the bendix is locked up put it in about 3rd gear and rock it hard forward and back. Bendix may release. Make sure battery is good. As I said before these bike are well known for their starter problem and even after having it fixed by a dealer problem seems to show back up after a very short time. Good Luck!

Probabilly a stuk carburettor float or needle.
Try to solve this problem to gently tap on the carburettor bodies. If this doesn't help you have to clean out the carburettors, and/or replace the float neeldes
