Seems like a bad earth, check battery connectors, and any earth straps between engine and frame and also the connectors from each of the indicator wiring into the harness.

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!

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Almost always, your described problem indicates clogged idling jets. Stale fuel causes varnish like coating which must be removed. This then calls for a carb pulldown, disassembly and soaking non-rubber parts in carb cleaner. In the exploded carb diagram below, the idle (pilot) jet would be # 20.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

SOURCE: My Virago 750 starts up nicely idle is fine but

The rubber seals and fittings between the carbs and cylinder head get hard and brittle. They can develop small cracks and also loose the seal they had when new and pliable. This means that extra air gets into the air/fuel mix as it heads for the intake valves. The air that has not gone through the carbs leans the fuel mix and causes the high revs. The seals and fittings will need to be replaced. Dealers have parts in stock for 10 years. Your bike is 22 years old. Google yamaha virago 750 parts also Google vintage motorcycle parts. Babbitt's would be a good source if the '87 and '88 parts match up. They list an '88 and have all the parts in stock except one hose line.
Go to the site below where you can see a parts diagram for your specific bike. You will select the actual brand, year, model, etc., once you go to the site. Part numbers and prices are also shown. You can order parts from this site. In the event no price is shown on a particular part and/or the notation "Not Available" is in the description, the part is not in stock. www.babbittsonline.com/pages/parts/viewbybrandand/parts.aspx

SOURCE: 2006 Virago 250 carburator problem

try removing the spark plugs . if there dirty clean the with a wire brush.. check the gaps on them are the same . might not be a bad idea to get new one.. if that doesent work its probably that your carbs are dirty or blocked.. if you leave your bike laid up too long the unburnt feul in the carbs evaporates and th additives in it remain and turn to goo.... a couple of hours work at your local garage.. wont cost much.. dont mess with them if your not sure

Why is our 2005 Bayou 250 rev up when putting into neutral


Have you tried to lower the idle? When an Auto/5speed shiftable transmission is stopped in gear the drivetrain holds it back or loads it down a bit. If you take off a load the idle will rise. Sounds like your idle is too high. Do you have your idle set high to keep it from stalling?

You can check for intake leaks with carb cleaner. Spray a little near suspected areas and try to account for spray going in the carbs. A change in RPM is an indication of a leak.

I have a yamaha virago 250 and it has started dieing everytime I come to a stop, any suggestions


Adjust your idle mixture. It's a matter of turning a screw located under the tank on the left side of the bike a HAIR. Adjust it after the engine is warm. You don't want it to sound too revved up, but just enough. If you adjust it and the throttle is choppy, you turned it too far to the right. Turn it back just a touch to the left to lessen the mixture ifthis happens.
Good luck!

Won't rev past idle.


Sounds like its time for carburator/s clean up, I think the main jets may hve dirt in them.
