Well the idle drops because the clutch is slipping making the engine work harder at idle so adjust the clutch on the lever and to drop the idle on carbs there will be a screw this is the idle screw turn this out until it idles at 1000rpm buddy get back to me if no difference my honda vf 400 f is idlind very high and than - 8910b55.jpg

When i put my 1987 Yamaha Virago in gear, it dies


Yamaha motorcycles of this vintage often have issues with their kickstand switch. This switch can be disabled by clipping the two wires that go into the switch and wiring them together--the kickstand switch is normally closed (letting current flow) when the stand is up; the switch is open when the kickstand is down.
This is more afield than your electrical concerns, but if the clutch plates have bonded together, the bike will stall when you put the bike into gear. The bike will start and idle fine, but basically, you don't have a working clutch, so the bike will stall out when you dump it into gear while at a standstill. You can test for this by starting the bike and having someone push the bike to get up to a little speed, then trying to shift into 2nd gear. If the bike lurches forward before stalling or keeps running, you have a clutch, not an electrical issue.
Folks sometimes get lucky, and working the clutch plates a few times will free up the sticking plates. I have had this problem with a mid-1970s vintage Honda that I don't ride very often. Eventually, the clutch plates free up and the bike is good to ride again.
Good luck!

Bike start and runs great... only problem is when i put it on 1st gear the bike feels like jumping... whats the problem with that? is that normal? Please help... thanks


They do 'clunk' a little when selecting first, but should not jump forward. There could be two reasons its doing this. Has the bike stood for a while before you bought it? If so the clutch plates can get a little 'sticky'. This is easily sorted by removing the clutch cover, bolts/springs then clutch plates. Make sure they go back on in the same order. The second issue is a badly adjusted clutch, although if your bike has a hydraulic clutch, this should not be the problem. Make sure your idle is not to high as well.

1982 Honda 650 nighthawk; jumps and stalls when put into gear.


this may help,it doesnt sound like the clutch is out of adjustment,it sounds like the clutch plates have become stuck together,(this happens quite a bit if the bike has been parked for a while..ie over winter)..to fix it get the bike moving,down a drive way or something..then just bang it into gear,then shift into the highest gear you can by shifting without the clutch,once you have a bit of pace on simply hold the clutch lever in and work the throttle on and off all the while holding the clutch lever in,the clutch should free itself fairly quickly and should be back to normall,a lot of older bikes are good at doing this..hope this helps
