I would suggest getting on ebay and get one that is used. It completely depends on what all is destroyed in the engine. You would probably be better off finding a used engine. You might also go to craiglook.com and you can search the whole United States rather than just your local area. Good Luck!

Frankly its not worth it, if you look around then you can find one complete
etc for less than a motor. I read this and before I did any more after mine
went for the 3rd time, all different reasons, I gave it to the Yamaha dealer.
That way I get a warranty on the repair etc. I am REALLY ****** off with
the poor design, however, I know people with 60,000 miles on the clock,
mine has 22,000 miles. OK I know its 400 Euro.

Starter engages while the motor is running


Hi, William the starter drive/Bendix/clutch is a mechanical gear driven component that engages the clutch pack ring gear to turn over the engine. It has an internal mechanism that allows the gear to turn in one direction and once the engine starts allows the drive gear to free spin. If gear free spins in both directions then the drive gear has failed, it is not serviceable and needs to be replaced.

1999 yamaha xv 535 when you start the bike there


I have a 94 virago that had that problem last year. First, is your starter switch releasing all the way out? Mine was sticking. Also the regulator-rectifier needed replacing, as it was no longer damping the current, which leads to surges, especially when revved. If you have a manual it will tell you how to check the current running through the bike. Replacing the regulator is cheap and easy even for me with my limited bike knowledge! Hope this helps.

I was riding my 95' virago 535 when the bike stopped at an intersection. I was unable to start it up and found out soon after that my back tire would not move in gear. I figured that the engine locked but...


If pulling in the clutch allows the rear wheel to roll, then we know the problem is not in the final drive or the transmission countershaft. What we still don't know is if it is the engine (crank, pistons, cams) or main shaft in the transmission. At this point, I suggest taking out both spark plugs, removing the PLUG, STRAIGHT SCREW from the left side of the crankcase, then put a socket on the nut you see inside there and rotate the crankshaft counter clockwise. When you hit the spots where the cams are trying to lift the valves, you will feel resistance, but, it should still turn. If it does not turn, something has seized, either the crank or pistons, possibly the cams, but that is not good, and can be expensive to repair.

94 yamaha 535 virago sounds fine, just wont start


Check to make sure your getting gas by pulling off the hose, if no gas comes out your petcock is clogged. If this is the case blow air up into the hose, and if gas comes out now your tank has to be cleaned out.

I was riding my '94 Virago 535 when it made a loud whirring sound then the bike stalled and I was unable to start the bike again. When I press the starter button nothing happens except the headlight goes...


Yes, the starter clutches sometimes get stuck on those bikes.
Then the starter turns at very high speeds and get broken.
Remove the starter from the engine ( that's an easy job )
Hold the starter in a bankwrench and connect a 12V battery to it. If the starter turns, he is OK, if not, replace the starter and his clutch system.
