    Frustrating float level adjustment. 1995 Yamaha Virago 750

    Meh, you tried. Thanks. I did download a manual for 81-99 models and it makes no differentiation between the carb models, so I'm feeling like something has been omitted here! Oy vey, off to join another forum maybe. I hired a new monkey, I'll let him go through our printed Yamaha manual page...

    Frustrating float level adjustment. 1995 Yamaha Virago 750

    Flat slides, no pumper. Large decel valves on the sides, though. Kinda queer, those Yami folk. Here's the actual set. My reference pictures before disassembly.

    Frustrating float level adjustment. 1995 Yamaha Virago 750

    Yep. Using the same method. The nipple on the bottom (which has no overflow function) has a screw to drain and to test fuel level. I've used this method on many different bikes before. This is the first time I can't find an EXACT reference to the carbs I have on this bike. Even searching the...

    Frustrating float level adjustment. 1995 Yamaha Virago 750

    I don't. Would have to be back at the shop in the morning. The carbs were on the bike, on the center stand, hose filled with no bubbles and held against the center of the float bowl. They're Mikuni. I can only find any acknowledgement of the existence of the carbs pictured through eBay. It seems...

    Frustrating float level adjustment. 1995 Yamaha Virago 750

    Right, I've got a clear tube and I bleed the bubble out. I've done this before plenty of times. These savages are playing one cruel trick. Look at how bent outta shape my float tang is and still the fuel is reaching no less than about 7mm below! It's just like Yamaha to hop in and out of bed...

    Frustrating float level adjustment. 1995 Yamaha Virago 750

    Why are Yamaha's and Kawasaki's so frustrating? I've never had trouble wrapping my head around a Honda. Suzuki I won't comment on. So the shop manual says that "88 and later" XV750's should have a carb fuel level of "2mm". The hell does this mean? 2mm above or below? Measuring from what point...

    Need chrome slip on mufflers for 2" headers

    I have a set of 4-2 headers and they include the mufflers, but they're kinda crap. I want to find some mufflers that will fit a 2" OD pipe and look the part. I've searched everywhere and haven't found such an odd size except for more modern sport-bike cans. Here's an idea of what I need. Let...

    Looking for Honda Magna clutch socket!

    Low blow, bro. Low blow. How often do YOU take the clutch off of a Magna? The last time I took a clutch off of something that wasn't a 60's Honda it was a PC800, and it didn't have some fancy whimsical locking nut that only grows on the North Eastern coast of Japan. Back to work. There's the...

    Need 70's Honda seat lock or parts

    I have a seat lock that has a broken shank/bolt whatever it's called. The part that locks the pin on the seat. Let me know if you have a similar lock to the one pictured or if you at least have the shank from one. It's the part attached to the spring, sort of strawed or brassy color.

    Looking for Honda Magna clutch socket!

    And that's why I'm here. It requires some precision engineering. So I'm willing to pay to borrow one or source another.
