Virago 535 not starting

Sounds like:
A: The starter clutch is slipping and not letting the starter engage the crankshaft
B. The carbs need to be cleaned. If ti has sat unused for more than 30 days, the pilot jets are clogged up causing it to stall (off choke) and be sluggish on acceleration off idle.

When I turn on the power in my Virago 2002 XV250R

motorcycle headlights stay on at all times the bike is on, kind of like running lights on a car. on some model bikes, when you first turn on the key the headlight doesn't turn on so that there is less draw from the battery so your starter can use the current your light doesn't. but once the bike is started or the start button is pushed, the headlight will remain on until you turn the key off.

My 1994 virago is stalling while riding. There is fuel in the tank. It takes me about 5 minutes to get it started again and there is poor response from the throtal

sounds like you are not getting enough gas, is it just outta winter storage? try some Berrymans B12 fuel additive in the gas it will clean the gum out of your carbs.
