Gen 1 virago Hitachi carb butterfly shaft seals

PostAuthor: Yamahas rock » Tue Nov 05, 2019 12:27 pm

Hi everyone,

Me and my brother about a month ago took a little ride on our bikes. His Gen one needs new butterfly shaft seal's and he said that they need are no longer made. Is this true? If not then where can they be found and how expensive are they? It probably could not hurt to change the seals on mine too even though they are fine.

I would suggest contacting www.viragocarb.com and see if they have a source for the shaft seals.

Those seals require complete disassembly of your carbs. You need to file off the staked ends of the throttle plate/butterfly screws before removing the screws and butterflies. Otherwise you will bugger the screws trying to remove them. Polish any burrs off the throttle shafts before you pull them out of the carb bodies so you don't damage the bushings. I just want to make sure you know what you're getting into. IMHO It's not for the beginner.
