Question about 1989 Yamaha Xv 250 Virago S
Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Almost always, your described problem indicates clogged idling jets. Stale fuel causes varnish like coating which must be removed. This then calls for a carb pulldown, disassembly and soaking non-rubber parts in carb cleaner. In the exploded carb diagram below, the idle (pilot) jet would be # 20.
Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.
