Hi,this may help,upgrading a stator is a very expensive option,(the standard ones are expensive enough),by heated gear i assume you mean heated hand grips?.if so then a better option would be to have the heated accessories wired through a relay and feeding direct (via the relay)from the battery,also look at a higher rated battery of the same external dimensions,both of these options are easy and relatively inexpensive,i have heated grips,seat,driving and spotlights and a 200w per channel stereo on my goldwing simply with everything running thriugh relays with a direct switced feed to a heavy duty battery and have had no problems at all even in a minus 15 deg c newzealand winter...cheers

2001 Virago 250. Engine starts every time but cuts out when put into gear.Does not seem to be the clutch as it does not **** forward.

Some models have a 'kill switch' if the sidestand is still out. So the contact, telling the bike that the sidestand is it, might be damaged.

2nd gear does not work on my Yamaha Virago xv250

Sounds like a slightly bent shift fork. The slider gear isn't quite engaging into 2nd. If the bend gets worse then you won't get into first and the pedal will get real stiff in those gears. The repair is best done in the shop.

Please rate this solution. Thanks!
