Question about Yamaha Motorcycles

1 Answer

I have a 1986 Yamaha Virago XV700..My problem is the throttle control on my handlebars has broken. The end piece has broken off and something on the inside of the throttle seems to have broken. When I put the Bike into First, is Revs and the RPM jumps to almost immediately. Does anyone know how to fix this on my throttle control? Is this a part I can buy and fix myself or an easy fix? I appreciate any ones help. Thank you

Most Yamaha models have 2 bolts holding the seat on, usually located between the top shock mounts and the side covers. You should be able to find them without too much trouble, but remember- they are metric. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 85 virago 1000 breaks down rpm

I have a 95 yamaha virago with 12,000 miles on it. The tick is normal... The backfiring is not, back pressure is cuz of the drive shaft. I had a similar problem when cracking the throttle at a high rpm. check you plugs for fouling and gap. clean them and regap to around .030. sand inbetween the electrode and outer pin and the outer pin. if the electrode is shot replace them but remember to gap it. should fix your problem. good luck.

follow the plug wire back to the coil and see if there are any breaks, if not might switch coil with the other one and see if the other plug now misfires, if so replace the coil, most cdi problems are not intermittent, typically they either work, or they dont.
