Throttle shaft seals for Virago Hitachi carbs

PostAuthor: Yamahas rock » Mon Mar 02, 2020 1:48 pm

Hello all,

I have been trying to find throttle shaft seals for my brother's Virago 920. And I have finally found a company that makes seals that fit. For around $6 on Amazon, a company called USA Sealing who will send you 25 size 11 o rings that fit the throttle shafts on Early virago carbs. I found that putting 3 on each side of the shaft works best.

Amazon link. If its gone, then you can just go to Amazon and type in "USA sealing size 011 o rings". ... 719&sr=8-2

Good find.

I moved this to “Virago Ninja - Wrenchin' Secrets & Help Tips”, left a link to this thread in the original location “Virago Help - History / Restoration”. Moved it once again to “Motorcycle Parts Finds“ and left a link to the final destination.

Short version, the thread appears, and is accessible, in three locations.
