Quits running 1996 Yamaha XV 1100 Virago

Make sure the fuel system is properly vented (gas cap, carburetors) Make sure the petcock will freely flow fuel, If this is a vacuum system, make sure you do not have any vacuum leaks!! The carbs sound like they need a good professional clearing, setting, and synchronizing!!

Not getting fuel to the engine 1998 Suzuki GSX-R 600

1. Make sure tank has fuel and is not stopped up. Make sure petcock is clean. If this is a vacuum feed - make sure the vacuum hose is not cracked or have any leaks. Disconnect the fuel like going to the carbs , then use a manual vacuum gage to pull vacuum on the petcock to see if it fuel from the carb lines. If it doesn't, you have isolated the issue! If it does flow fuel, reconnect the carb fuel lines, then remove the float bowls from the carbs then repeat the process, If no fuel is flowing out, you have found the problem, If it does flow, you fixed it

2009 Kawasaki KLX 250 will not go into gear

1. Yes, this is a major issue! Its not the shift drum cam unless its broken in half. It might be the shift forks, Won't go into any gear? Is there spring pressure in the shifter or does it flop? Is the shifter TIGHT on the shift shaft? I think its time for a professional to look at it.
