I have a 2007 Virago 250cc that backfires when downshifting. It sounds like a shotgun going off. And it will not keep idling. It is steadelly getting worse every time I ride it.


Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery, should have 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
2. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
3. Faulty main circuit breaker and or connections.
4. Faulty ignition coil and or connections.
5. Faulty spark plug, oil or gas fouled, wrong heat range or service type, wrong gap, loose in the cylinder head, broken electrode or insulator.
6. Faulty spark plug cables, leaking or broken, internal damage.
7. Faulty ignition module, switch, CKP, MAP, CMP, sensor and or any connector in the ignition circuit could have corroded, loose, or broken pins/sockets
8. Burnt exhaust valve or air leak in the exhaust system.

Where is the oil drain plug on a 2002 yamaha vx 250 virago


On my 1995 250 virago the oil drain is a phillips head screw located on the left side of the bike behind, and slightly above the kick stand. It's almost directly below where the shifter connects to the transmission. Not sure if it's the same for a 2002, but I suspect it likely is.

Hello, I have a 1990 route 66 250cc


You can get to 55 with and old Honda 90cc. Your 250cc should do 80 with no problem. Your gearing is backwards. The larger the rear sprocket, the slower you go. You have tried to compensate a loss of engine power with a gear reduction demanding more from the what little power the engine is putting out. Put the 45T sprocket back on and do some work on the cylinder head. Ethanol is famous for corrosion and your valves are proof of it. All your power and gas mileage are going out the exhaust pipe. Pull the cylinder head and re-seat the valves. This should get back the power that is missing. You didn't mention any smoking so the piston rings must still be good. The stock main jet is #110. The higher the number , the richer the mix. Go to a #112 or #115 if you need to but only after the valve job. Right now the main jet is not the problem and changing it will only mean even worse mpg.

I answered this question once but the answer has disappeared into cyberspace. FixYa has a problem with that occasionally. A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks!

Idle adjustment


your idle adjustment should be some where on the side of your bike, its usually a black cable with a black dial on the end of ot and should be attached to a metal cable/rod and bolted to another part of the bike
