Hi everyone, I usually post something about my 950, but I realize I'm leaving someone very important out. Here is my girls 93' Yamaha Virago 535. She just got into riding last season. We picked this up for $1,100 bucks. When purchased, it already had 2 new tires and brakes all around, new one way starter clutch, flywheel, stator, and oil change. About a week ago just got done doing a 4K service to it, valve adjustment etc... And new clutch frictions and steels. She's got 26K miles on her but still runs terrific!

My 1972 XS-2 project, not been used or started in over 10 years. I got it running yesterday but it wont rev up, it spits back through the carbs and backfires through the exhaust. Any ideas ???

  • While we're all stabbing in the dark (lol) float levels and fuel starvation? Lots of info here http://www.xs650.com/forum/showthread.php?t=390

  • Fixed it. It now runs like a sewing machine. Not bad for a bike that has stood idle for over 10 years. Quality Yamaha engineering. The problem was the condensers not earthing to the frame properly, I took them off cleaned everything up, put them back and the engine was running before the kick start lever got to the end of its travel. Have now balanced the carb and she runs sweeeeeeeet. Thanks for all your comments guys. Now to cut the frame to bits !!!!!

  • Fantastic and thanks for posting what the solution was :-) (I wouldn't have been able to sleep). "Now to cut the frame to bits !!!!!" - Don' t you dare....:-( Aaaah, do what you like then. :-)

  • I have only had mine for a month or so, most i have done in one day is about 180miles (300k's) 90% of that was mountain work.

  • Did the Great Alpine Road from the Hume Highway & thru to Gippsland & back to Melbourne in one day over a year ago 550-600 miles, 1/3 straight highway, 1/3 alpine twisties in the mountains, 1/3 long sometimes curvy flat roads back home. Left at 0630, back at 2100.

  • Just the airbox to do and the Closed Loop,, then your done,, with exception of exhaust...

  • I just found the closed loop thing a few minutes ago, i knew about the air box but was not going to bother untill i got an exhaust which im not going to do untill im off my restriction, i only have 1300k's of riding experience so atm with the restrictor off its enough for me, the first big run i did (was only meant to be 4 hours) was around reefton spur and lake mountain area's, was still restricted then (was still on my L's) and still had some very hairy moments so not really interested in chasing more power atm, come the end of next summer when im off my restrcition and have many more K's under my belt it will probably be a different story :)

  • Thats very sensible Brett, I like to hear when people think seriously about what they are doing, you will do well in the bike world with that attitude mate. The airbox mod doesn't make much difference but it does give it a good growl which you will like, and the closed loop doesn't make it much better speed wise but it does make it smoother as well as tick over much better. I havent done my exhaust, i think the main reason is I want to keep it near standard so when i sell or trade I can still do it as a LAMS, when i did my re-stricter i only bent it rather than replace it, so it only needs bent back, the airbox mod wont need reversed as it actually sounds much better. You will need to get out with the boys some time for a cruise, quite a few of us in the Melbourne area,,, Im out at Werribee...

    • That is a lovely bit of kit, Gav! I thought it might of been the ex-Pete Barratt bike you bought from Lin, for a mo...until I read it was your 3rd Teeza! It can be a very emotional experience selling a bike! I can remember how I felt when I sold the Yamanana .....although, it was tempered by the fact that I had fallen out of love with racing. Good luck with the sale, chap. Someone out there doesn't know they love it yet! Emotional Colonial.

    • Have to agree with all that has been said here, I priced up building a sorted bike for a mate recently, he's already got a ratty TZR, perfect for a race bike basis. We stopped when the bill got past three grand, it's not cheap and I don't want to think how much my bikes have cost me all told. But getting it prepared properly in the first place is the key, I started with a knackered bike with some good bits on it, it wasn't race ready and I was too naive to know any better. I nearly jacked it in during my first year, but perseverance and some good advice from those in the know made me get it sorted properly, can't be that bad now, Doug won the Clubmans on it! Your bikes not overpriced Gav, it's about right for all the work involved, you could buy it and go straight out competitively whitch is the key.

    • I'm in the process of converting a tatty (bodywork) J reg. road bike and luckily I can do most of the work myself - however I'm still looking at £2k+ including buying the bike for £600 so the bike above represents good value for a competitive racer

    Again and again I have to "remind" people that XS650 is not any low rpm sloping torque twin. See there is no letter V attached to twin ;-)

    The power and torque curves tell about rev hungry speeder:


    Below 5000 rpm you have only little bit more that half of the peak power in use. Why people want to ride an underpowered XS650?

    XS650 motor in tune will vibrate most heavily around 4500 - 5500 rpm and above that vibrations get minor and motor starts to feel more like a turbine.

    • 91.3 r factory jets.

    • The 04 classic should have #90 main jets, unless it is a California bike. From what I can see on the parts Diagrams both carbs should have the same jet sizes...... If your bike is a Cali bike 91.3 is the stock size, but for me cali emissions is a foreign planet that I don't even want to visit....Having said that even if you have a cali bike by changing the pipes you lost the catalytic converters and I would jet it like the 49 state models #90 mains and #20 pilots both carbs.

    • my bike has aftermarket clutch perch witch just has the clutch cable going through it, no more sensors or parking brake line, but my rear caliber doesnt have a parking brake blockoff plate just has the spring on it. i messed around with my carb yesterday and noticed the accelerator pump was stuck down, so i yanked on it and it seems to keep it from breaking up at higher rpms, now i have a problem with the bike wanting to idle high and always wants to stay at a constant throttle even tho its at idle. and for whatever reason the pilet jet keeps falling out. any ideas?

My gazebo got trashed last year and I've not got round to fixing it, and my plan to buy a caravan has stalled slightly (although it may still happen in time). As a contingency, would anyone space in their team sized gazebo for the bike, tool box & a couple of boxes of bits and pieces? I'll be sleeping in the van as usual if the caravan plan doesn't come to fruition but need some 'technical accommodation'.

    Bemsee Instruction/Paddock Buddy/Track walk for Brands 13/14th April....... Simples Eeeek


    Want to tap into the experience available to you at Bemsee in the Rider Development Program? Rookie or not all you need to do is ask while the spaces with instructors are available. Its simple....

    Drop me a PM on Facebook or email me at jeremy@jhill-racing.com and I'll get you on the list. Cut off point for requests (if not full) is Friday 5th April.

    Paddock Buddy:

    If you didn't request a paddock buddy for Snett and struggled a bit knowing where to be and what to do (in the snow!) then just ask for one for Brands. Remember everyone helps out in the club and its never a big ask so its as simple as the instruction to request. Drop me a PM on Facebook or email me at jeremy@jhill-racing.com and I'll get you on the list. Cut off point for requests (if not full) is Friday 5th April.

    Track Walk:

    It will be from the pit lane near the starting lights at 6.30 on Friday night after practice. Invaluable for the ground level tips on the track and its quirks to help you get that best lap in.

    For those that have used one, two or all three of the above can testify as to how good, and friendly, these support programs are. Dont be proud be sensible and ask, we are only too pleased to help make your racing the best it can be at Bemsee.

    Bring your shorts I have planned sun for Brands :-)

      27th Annual Big Texas Toy Run: December 15th, 2012

      (This is video from Gateway Park in Fort Worth, Texas to Lone Star Park in Grand Prairie, Texas. This video does not include the ride from Dallas, Texas starting position)


      The Big Texas Toy Run (TBTTR) is a 501c(3) Charity.

      The Big Texas Toy Run benefits Mental Health-Mental Retardation (MHMR) of Tarrant County, Metrocare Services (the MHMR in Dallas County), and other children's charities in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. The toys are distributed to thousands of underprivileged and challenged children all over the Metroplex. All funds disbursed are earmarked for educational needs & recreational use only.

      Immediately after the toy run, the abundance of toys that are so graciously donated are divided, as equally as humanly possible, by our staff and loaded into trucks to be transported to MHMR of Tarrant County and Metrocare Services, and other children's charities in the Dallas / Fort Worth area where they are distributed, beginning as early as the following day, to thousands of children from all over the Metroplex.

      Proceeds are disbursed to MHMR of Tarrant County and Metrocare Services and are earmarked for recreational, and educational use.

      2012 marks the 27th Annual Big Texas Toy Run.

      Approximately 15,000-20,000 motorcycles rumbled down I-30 from Fort Worth and Dallas to converge on Lone Star Park in Grand Prairie.

      An estimated $450,000.00 - $500,000.00 in toy were donated.


      The Big Texas Toy Run is proof of this. Since 1985, thousands of gallant bikers in North Texas have joined together each year to put joy in the hearts of children by delivering toys to those in need at Christmas.

          17/33 UK/Euro

          17/34 USA

          17/36 Canada

          When I got the bike last year it had 18/30 on it and it was like starting in 2nd gear, way to high for in town. I am going with 17/32 if I can't find a 33 rear for this season. I have heard that if you keep a higher gear ratio it reduces highway vibration anyone experience this?

        • Yes Dave Leigh........of course synced carbs are probably the best answer to vibes, but at 18/32 gearing I was going 75 MPH @ 45 hundred RPM, smooth sailing, no nasty vibes. A concern of self preservation kept me from going faster though I believe the old girl could have done it with no problems. I find that with the taller gearing I use the lower gears more often and do a lot of shifting.....trying to keep her at a minimum of 25 hundred in any given gear, anything lower than 25 hundred and I'm downshifting. Tight , slow corners may get me down into first, rarely, but I don't bog me engine down.

        EVERYONE IS INVITED — Yamaha V-Star riders


        The Honor Flight New England will hold the inaugural flight in Maine on Sunday April 7. These flights leave early morning and return late the same day. They have requested all who can - to attend and see these Heroes off and welcome them back on their return. Honor Flight New England joined with the national organization Honor Flight Network in the Spring of 2009 and is a non-profit organization created solely to honor America's veterans for all of their sacrifices. Through generous donations they transport our heroes to Washington, D.C., to visit and reflect at their memorials AT NO COST TO THE VETERAN. Top priority is given to the senior veterans – World War II survivors, along with those other veterans who may be terminally ill.

        Portland Jetport at 0430 April 7, 2013

        The Honor Flight will be returning to the Portland Airport at 10:30pm on same day. The Honor Flight New England Group will be standing a flag line to welcome these heroes home if anyone would like to join them.

          Got my TRIPLE WHAMMY™ RUN-TURN-BRAKE LIGHT KIT but it appears I need a security key key wrench to remove the side cover to get at the wiring. Bad enough it came with the wrong light bulbs and it will take a week to get the right ones. The bulbs were 1156 base with opposing pins to lock it in. My bike takes a 7507 base with pins at 10 and 2. The 7507 red bulbs are only available through Kurakyn for abou$10 each. Filed one of the nubs off of the 1156 and it works ok but I would rather have the correct bulbs and keep these as spares.

Bike could still sit on a showroom floor! been my baby for 20 years and I took excellent care of it. Shows like new and is now in classic category. A damn good investment.

              Happy/sad day- I'll be selling my 1993 Vmax (pristine condition- 50,000km) as I've just purchased a 2013 Harley Breakout. I live in Toronto, Canada if anyone on here is interested. At least it would go to someone who would treasure it as much as I have. $5,000- new fork seals, brakes, valve cover gaskets as valve clearances were just done, front tire and carbs cleaned and synched

                ok, so a while back i was having bike problems and i posted on here asking what it could be and i posted what i found the problem to be! i rode up to a place in conyers ga called Mountain Motorsports. the bike was fine and rode great like ALWAYS. then, when i was done inside i came out and got on. i noticed while trying to accelerate by turning the throttle passed a quarter turn or going over 55 i bogged down. Me being a college student, i had to leave the next day to go to school. i attend Georgia Southern University which is 4 hours away. the next weekend coming home, i was cleaning the bike and tinkering with the engine. i found that SOMEBODY TURNED MY FUEL SWITCH ON TO RESERVE! I was thankful i had made it home ok and that it wasnt broken after all!!

                  • I had it at 36 and 35 but lowered them down to 16 and 15 and it seems to be fine, I did notice a pinging noise accelerating at low revs though, that's why I turned it down a bit in case the fuel was too rich

                  • We will never get R6 power because they aren't R6 motors. Yamaha reused the block, but the head it totally different. The FZ6R head isn't designed to flow as much air or rev as high period. You won't make 100hp from this motor without a SERIOUS rebuild and tune. As for this CO stuff, what country are you guys in? I don't think US bikes are setup the same way over here

                  • Matt, we are in Australia.

                    The Closed loop can be accessed on US bikes, but it involves a bit of rewiring.

                    Marthy & some of the other FZ6R forum guys were messing around with it a while ago. See CO Mod - fz6r forum.

                  Attachment Unavailable — Yamaha Virago XV 750

                  This is my rebuilt 1988 Yamaha Virago. It broke my heart recently when I left it into a motorcycle shop in Dublin for an alternator installation. I got it back with the starter gear spring chewed into the flywheel, the alternator was sandwiched between the casing and the engine shorting it to ground, the gasket was not replaced and there was a massive oil leak. As everyone knows the Yamaha Virago is notorious for charging problems, but I modified this bike and fitted a solar battery charger to it so I can always keep my battery charged even if I end up with another rectifier issue.

                    • Good review of the pedal

                    • I finished both shows. Pedal had a great sound... I ran it by itself and noticed that it seemed to be much quieter than my previous setup of the MXR M87 and SFT pedal... but overall I would say the tone was much clearer.. the quietness was not a problem, I have plenty of headroom in the amp.

                    • I notice your demo if the drive section has the compressor engaged throughout. The revelation of this pedal for me is that I can run separate compressor through the clean loop and leave the dry unaffected. It respond so well to playing dynamics this way - play lightly for a little grit, or dig in more dirt, all the while having a nice, clear clean tone unpinning it.

                      Finally a pedal that let's me do what I've been wanting to do for years!

                      PS, used mine last night for it's maiden gig too. Perfomed wonderfully - so much easier to dial in a good tone than my Nova Drive (which is still a great pedal BTW), and more punch.

                      A couple more pedals and I think I'll finally be happy!

                    • I believe Billy chose not to have a tone control on the P p/up as it often affects volume too.

                    • If you're handy with tools, it probably wouldn't be too much work to add another jack socket and rewire the same as the LTD. I'm sure someone here could furnish you with the wiring schematics.

                    • hmmm, maybe, I will just leave the tone knob on the neck p/up as it is. I will just replace both pickups with dimarzio, and scallop the last 5 frets and add a hipshot D and (add another jack socket, but I will do it last). many thanks! :)

                    So if some of you think its possible, it will help me to forgive the last 6 nations rugby challenge :)

                    • No David. You can change springs and oildeflectors on any engine with the head on, but you have to use compressed air to hold the valves up.

                    • Aaah. I see. It honestly didn't occur to me that you might just change the valve springs. I was thinking more of someone who would need to examine or cut new faces or replace valves. Thanks kristian.

She loves to ride on the bike and she does really clean it she tells me you work on it so I'll keep it clean for us. We always joke with people that ask me how'd you get her to clean ur bike, I tell them if she don't clean it I'll take off the back seat and she can't ride. A lot of times if their wife is there to hear that the wife will tell me to go away. LOL

I also hooked in the "Drive Loop" a "bypass" to turn the channel off whilst leaving the pedal "always on" to utilize the compressor the whole time, it works flawlessly! Enjoy the video!!!

A simple latching foot switch will work but it MUST be wired correctly or you can get this connector, http://www.hosatech.com/product/325356/GPP-419/_/A daptor%2C_14_in_TS_to_14_in_TRS and it will work with a standard latching foot switch! Yes I have adjusted the trim pots inside the pedal and my tastes lead me to the "HIGH" setting because the make up gain is hotter there, and yes, beware of the tiger in my bass!
