Question about 1996 Yamaha XV 535 Virago DX

1 Answer

I recently purchased a 96 virago 750 and when i got it home and rode it i pulled up to a stop light and it just died all of a sudden. when i got it back to my house i found that there was a wire from the clutch to the brake that was taped when i removed the wire it would just die. so when i put the wire back in it will start but not go into gear without dieing. i spliced it together and it ran fine all day until that night after sitting for a few hours now it is acting up again any solutions?

Sounds like they have jumped the clutch safety switch, probably because it doesnt work. You may need a new clutch switch, the side stand safety switch could also be acting up.and may also be a reason for this. You could try a multi meter on the switches, to identify the fault, but it can be intermittant, as you may have noticed, also make sure the wiring is good and hasnt been jammed in the steering.

Battery will not hold charge

It sounds as if you have a loose connection. Check all the connections and get the Stator resistance checked.

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.
