Dont drive it until you know the problem. Unless you are rally brave, if it really has no pressure it will destroy the engine

check or replace the oil pressure sender switch , and the relay( if it is the oil sender relay)

Bike wont start, turn the key n everything lights up as normal, press the start button n just nothing


It could be the link from the starter button to the ignition coil. If you can check this for a current it should give an indication of the problem.

87virago1100cc wont kick over seems like a relay or switch cause it wont even click


Do any lights come on when the key is turned? Are you you sure there is power from the battery? If yes then what happens when the start button is pressed? Do the lights dim at all? Even without a click noise if the button is supplying power to the solinoid the oil check/dummy lights should dim slightly. If no dimming but the lights are on when the key is turned, start by checking the starter button, if there is no power there trace your way back to the battery with a voltmeter until you find where the power stops.

Have a buddy tip the bike over to the right - if the level is in fact too high, tipping it to the right should reveal this. If it's way too full, that could create problems. I doubt it will damage the engine but it could make a mess if it's overfilled by more than a quart.

Too much oil is better than not enough. Find out for sure before you run it any more.

I have a similar problem, and a friend who has the same model as me says the dragstars are notorious for battery wear, especially standard batteries, he also suggested I tried a motobatt battery as they have 20% more power on ignition than a standard type, if that doesn't cure it then look towards the solenoid, that is what I plan on doing, if I find the root cause I will let you know and if you do, you will have to tell me, good luck to both of us.

1100 Dragstar Fitting Straight Pipes


We have changed a few bikes from standard pipes to drag pipes. Their is a few considerations here, sea level or at what altitude, how much back pressure. so my suggestion rather take it before fitting the pipes to someone with a dyno, run and record the test, then have the pipes fitted, and let the same shop to the test again on there dyno, they will then know what to do with the jetting, because you should achieve better results with your new pipes.

If the bike has been sitting for 5 years the battery will be dead lights working does not mean it is good,fit a new one.A hydrometer is a good and cheap tool to check individual cells of a battery.about £7 or $12? from auto store.Allso carefully check and sand all earth cables ,and check cut out switches ,maybe on side stand As for the oil level if you have no dip stick you may have a sight glass on the side of the engine,stand bike upright, put wood under the sidestand on level surface,be very carefull not to drop it, leave to settle .if level correct the oil will be half way up the glass. if this does not help call back.

Air cleaner clean? Is it in fact warm (the engine) .

Id be inclined to let it warm a little more. Your hot bike has advanced time and as a result is difficult when cold.
