Question about 1999 Yamaha XV 1600 Wild Star

1 Answer

How do I remove the fuel tank from my XV1100?

How do I remove the fuel tank from my 1998 Virago XV1100? (despite what is showing in the 'product's category')
I know how to remove the bolt holding the tank and to slide it towards the back of the bike but I'm wary about what is on the underside that will require disconnecting. Any tips and pointers would be appreciated.
Thanks
Kev

How do i get the sub tank off a virago 535 to respray it


Its Ben awhile but if I remember rt. remove the seat turn off the petcock valve and at the neck there is a cover made Of plastic that covers the bolt that goes through the tank mount from side to side. Remove that bolt and the tank will lift up it should have some rubber mounts that require a little tug to get the tank to come off but it's actually very easy don't forget to unhook the fuel lines from the petcock valve before you take it off

I have a 1995 Yamaha virago 1100 that won't run when hot


Hi, Mamcclel and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery, should have 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a "LOAD" test if necessary, your battery may show 12.5 volts but have little or zero amps and needs to be replaced.
2. Failed alternator/generator and or voltage regulator.
3. Loose or corroded battery terminals and or cables especially the "NEGATIVE" cable, look for loose, corroded, or broken connectors inside the cable harness at "BOTH" ends.
4. Failed main circuit breaker or ignition switch, check for loose connections and continuity.
5. Failed system and or ignition relay, check for continuity.
6. Failed ignition coil, stator, magneto, points/condenser ignition/electronic module.
7. Failed CKP, CPS, CMP, MAP, TPS, or BAS sensor, corroded, loose or broken wire connector pins/sockets.
8. Throttle cables and or idle speed improperly adjusted hot idle speed should be 950 RPM to 1000 RPM.
9. Air/fuel mixture screw improperly adjusted.
10. Accelerator pump damaged or not working.
11. Water or dirt in the fuel system, carburetor or filter.
12. Restricted, blocked or kinked fuel line.
13. Fuel tank empty.
14. Fuel tank contaminated with ethanol sludge.
15. The gas cap is not venting properly or fuel tank venting system blocked.
16. Vacuum line from intake manifold to petcock broken, cracked, or not attached, carburetor vent line plugged.
17. Needle and seat stuck closed in the float bowl.

I have a 94 virago 250 does it have an inline fuel filter? or a screen in tank instead? or both?


A 94 Virago has both...the fuel petcock on the tank has strainer that sits inside the tank, you remove the petcock and the strainer is attached.
There is also an replaceable inline filter on the suction side of the fuel pump.

Have a 2001 yamaha 250 virago and it won't satrt,


You do have fuel in the tank? Pull fuel line from carburetor--turn fuel tap ON--fuel should run from line (into clean can or bottle). If none, the brass screen inside the tap body may be plugged. Remove screen and hold with pliers. Clean with carburetor cleaner from auto parts store. When you set choke, can you see anything happening? May have water in bottom of float bowl. Remove bowl to check (and clean).
