NO.You do not need a new carb.If it has been repaired 3 times,it was not repaired properly on all 3 occasions.OR,there is another problem with the bike.Carbs only have a few parts in them.They are either blocked with gunk or not adjusted properly.Take some time and work out when the bike 1st started to run badly.Then go from there.What did it do? was it a fast or slow breakdown?Hey!Is there water in the fueltank.Small things 1st.Hope this helps

Ice auger isn't getting gas....


You will probably have to remove and disassemble the carburetor. Clean thoroughly and reassemble. Drain the gas line until fresh fuel comes out. Always run premium nonoxygenated( no ethanol ) fuel in your auger and add a fuel stabilizer like stabil or seafoam .this will help keep the problem from reoccurring. Hope this helps.

Virago 250 ran good until last parking. then, about two weeks later, what looked like a gas/oil blend began pouring out of the breather when cranking. engine would not start. removed carb and replaced...


Check you oil level first and foremost, sounds like your bike IS flooding. When you replaced your float needles did you inspect the seats they sit in?? if they have a nick in them they wont seal and flood. remove the carbs and bench test them. you may need to lap the seats if they are nicked if you need to please contact me and i will give you step by step on that part.
Good luck

I would like instructions on how to drain the carb for winter storage


Please do this: Get a fuel stabilizer such as StaBil, from your auto parts or motorcycle shop place. Go to the gas station, put the amount of stabilizer required in yourf tank, then fill the tank. Go for a little ride. When you get home, turn off the fuel valve. Let the engine run until it stop (runs out of gas). Store your bike in a cool, dry place.

2007 yamaha virago won't start - replaced spark plugs and emptied gas tank and filled with new gas. it turns over - it has spark (fire) but won't start. Bike had been garaged for six months with full tank...


it's not that your not gettin gas it's that the gas is not getting thru the carbs to the engine. your bike will probably start w/choke on and then die, your jets are clogged and happens to most bikes that are stored w/gas in the carbs.,,,clean them if you know how or take it to a trusted mech...good luck to you...Tim
