Question about 1999 Yamaha V Star 1100 Custom

1 Answer

My Virago 1100 (1998) motorcycle is missing one very small part. It is the outer cable holder for the choke that sits on the left hand side of the carburetors. It is held in place by 1 phillips head screw. I have the fiche here but can't find the part number or where abouts it is on the fiche. Can anyone help? fiche url:

    Thanks Tombones49. Unfortunately that fiche is identical to my link. I found a similar part under Crankcase 1 called a 'holder, clutch cable" but even after going through the whole site I have not come any closer to a solution.

Where is the choke located on a 2005 kx250f

a lot of new bikes have a automatic choke ,but if you look at the carburetor you should see 2 cables 1 is the throttle cable the other is the return cable both run up to the throttle hand control (some bikes might not have a return cable) if you see a third cable its probably the choke cable so you will need to follow it , sometimes it might not be a cable but a leaver on the side of the carbi , some cables run just under the seat or to the left handle bar depends .

Bought a used 1996 kawasaki vulcan 750 with no choke cable. got a new cable and can't find where it goes. I where see where the end of the cable goes but don't see a bracket where it has to go...

Ignore all these idiots. The engine does not need to be remove. He must own a dealership. Simply remove the large air tubes to the right carb and move the left up out of the way. The bracket is on the left side, then feed the cable to the right between the carbs, a bit tricky. You'll see the choke lever on the back right of the carbs. insert in the cable holder. You have to bend the cable up to slip into the holder, the back down to lock it in. Before all of this, attach to the hand lever first.

Will not stayed cranked. changed out old fuel, fuel filter, changed oil.

The Virago's have a tendency to clog up the carb. quickly due to sitting for a short amount of time, say a month or 2. Try and run some SEAFOAM in the carb. Remove the fuel line from the tank and force the seafoam into the carb with a turkey baster. Run the carb.s dry as best you can, force the seafoam into the carb. and let it sit for a day or so.Then try and start the bike off the seafoam, it will run and make a lot of smoke. Then hook the tank back up and see if that did the trick. Sometimes it will sometimes not, you may have to pull the carb.'s and clean them by removing the bowls and soaking them in a pan of the seafoam or something similar.

1995 Yamaha XV 250 Virago Is there a need to adjust the choke (start) cable? If so, how is it adjusted. I think I'm having a problem with my choke and was planning to replace the cable and starter...

The problems with a plunger style choke happen when the rubber on the bottom becomes deformed and does not seal or the spring does not push the plunger down hard enough, or the cap breaks so the plunger is not pushed down hard enough. If you put your finger over the hole and the bike runs properly your bike is running on choke. You have to block the hole deep inside the carb to shut off the choke. I assume the original problem was that the bike would not idle .If this is the case, take the carb apart remove the slow jet and clean the jet and the carb body out so fuel will flow at idle. This should fix your no idle problem.

Can Anybody please explain to me how you extricate the choke cable from the carb end a 250 Yamaha virago?this thing jams with regularity and I'm really jack of sending it to a workshop to be done.

Hi- I've had huge problems with choke cables jamming on my XV250 Virago and finally got fed-up with paying dudes to put on lousy cables at $80 per job- only to have 'em jam again in weeks! The problem is that the plastic inner liner eventually melts at the carb end and jams the cable tight. I've had a cable custom made without the plastic liner at the cablemakers advice. They're going to guarantee it to last too!
Undo the Phillips head screw under your choke lever and retrieve the wave washer and other bits therein. The cable, with a large trunnion swaged here will come away from the lever.
The Carby end is more difficult,
You can opt to remove the fuel tank, pump, cable bellcrank bracket (screwed to the top of the carb) for better access. If your fingers are small enough you might try without so nuch removal but your objective is to unscrew a hexagonal 'nipple' that holds the cable/spring and choke plunger in the carb.
Pull back the dustboot over the cable and you'll see it.
You should be able to use an open end wrench (about 11mm?) to loosen it then use fingetips to unscrew it (if loose enough!) take care when removing the whole lot from the carb- the spring and choke plunger sit on the end of the cable held only by a small 3mm swage. remove these parts from the cable and pull the cable out through its guides along the frame. Assembly is the reverse. I hope this helps some.

Where is the clutch assembly on a 1983 yamaha virago 750

Right hand side as you're sitting on the bike. Follow the cable down from the clutch handle and you'll see the cover that you need to remove. You can also make adjustments at either the handle end or the clutch casing end.
