A valve rocker came loose and is not opening the valves correctly...disconnect both spark plugs (so it won't start) take the top cover off the rear head, and crank it over, making sure the valves are moving properly...

To me it sounds like the coil is breaking down and not working at higher RPM's. You can take them off and have them tested at a service shop.

I have a 1985 xv700 virago. one of my plugs are misfiring. I had issues with my original one. yamaha dealer told me i needed a new cdi box. He sold me a used cdi igniter box from a non running 1985 Yamaha...


follow the plug wire back to the coil and see if there are any breaks, if not might switch coil with the other one and see if the other plug now misfires, if so replace the coil, most cdi problems are not intermittent, typically they either work, or they dont.
