If it is possible to start at all. Fresh fuel fresh engine oil good battery. You may have the following problems; Corroded and blocked carburetor fuel system, bad wire connections piston ring set up.... I hope it was kept indoors and the fuel was drained out before it was left sitting. Good luck, they are nice bikes.

Sure mirrors, nuts, bolts and screws. Maybe a fender and a bit of other stuff. But for the most part not much will match up and now you have this ugly monster in your garage and your next job is to figure out exactly how you are going to get rid of the da-- thing. Look a bit harder and get a match for your bike. Now you have something worthwhile.

A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks!

These are known for starter problems... The clicking you hear is the relay but the bendix is locked up put it in about 3rd gear and rock it hard forward and back. Bendix may release. Make sure battery is good. As I said before these bike are well known for their starter problem and even after having it fixed by a dealer problem seems to show back up after a very short time. Good Luck!

SOURCE: 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.

KTM 350 freeride won't start. Checked fuel line, fuel filters,line pressure, spark plug, kill switch,battery, fuses, starter motor, fuel, injector,replaced map sensor. Run out of ideas !

Go back to the basics. You need air, fuel and spark to run. Use starting fluid to make sure you have the fuel part. Was you plug wet when you pulled it? Fouled plug in winter in not uncommon. Make sure that plug fires when turning over. That will rule out everything electrical but timing. A shot of starting fluid would make it hit if it is not getting fuel. Also it will not start if the compression is low. I would check this while the plug is out. Good luck!

Where do I spray starter fluid in an 05 chrysler pacifica..ran out of gas and hoping it will start with the spray..did put gas in

Remove the air intake from the air filter container to the throttle body. Use only a quick shot of starting fluid. Can you hear the fuel pump run? Power cycling the key should get fuel flowing and is safer than starting fluid.
