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.

I installed a new battery in my 1987 535 Virago. When I turn on the key, nothing comes on. I have no power. The bike sat for 3 years. Any ideas?


Have you checked the main fuse from the positive terminal to the wire harness? I'ts contained in a white long clamshell type enclosure.

Won't idle without choke


The pilot jet controls the air/gas fuel mix at idle . If the jet gets plugged up not enough gas gets to the emgine at idle. You will need to remove the carbs and float bowls and clean them, paying special attention to the pilot valve. Count the number of turns to remove the pilot screw and replace the same number of turns then turn counter clockwise 1/2 turn.

If it is possible to start at all. Fresh fuel fresh engine oil good battery. You may have the following problems; Corroded and blocked carburetor fuel system, bad wire connections piston ring set up.... I hope it was kept indoors and the fuel was drained out before it was left sitting. Good luck, they are nice bikes.
