I had to take mine to a man in Berwick and he did it for me really cheap. He has his own place. If I find his name I will send it to you. He charges less than half of everyone else.

your crank case oil lubricates all of your internals including your clutch pack! if your crankcase oil is full and you clutch doesn't work still drain you oil and remove the right side crankcase cover that is where your clutch pack resides remove the clutch basket and check the clutch pack plates for ware they may need replacement! Empty your gas tank and start with fresh gas good chance your carburetors are gummed up from stale gas which will make it run rough and usually loose the ability to idle! as for your font brake check to make sure the master cylinder for it is topped up with fluid is so try bleeding it if after bleeding the brakes no improvement is noticed remove the front brake assembly pull the pads off and check to see if there is any movement in the calipers themselves they may have seized from sitting! and there is no honda virago, virago is a yamaha and i think if u have an 82 xv its a yamaha virago

The question isn't so much is there an aftermarket carb as how much do you want to spend?

Replacements from China or India will be much cheaper than a Japanese unit. A friend needed a carb for a small engine and google listed a specialist importer of such things and he bought a Chinese carb jetted and ready to go far cheaper than a few parts for the original. It bolted straight on, started and ran well.

ya gotta ask yourself WHY do I want to do that?
Even if it is possible, it is a giant leap backwards.
I will guess that it is not possible unless you want to build the parts required. But it may still not be possible.

Batt must b 12.6v no less..check alternator connection or the chargn wire. Make sure carb n compression r normal. Put some marine fuel cleanr in tank

Honda... | Answered on Oct 21, 2019

No, it's most likely a fuel related issue. First make sure you don't have the kill switch engaged.
Check the fuel filter and replace if old or dirty.
Then with the fuel petcock turned on open the drain screws on the carbs to be sure clean fuel flows from both of them. If it doesn't you have a blockage somewhere and disassembly of the fuel system and or carburetors may be called for. Start tracing the fuel path to see how far it is getting.You might have rust, water or other crud in your tank plugging things up.
