1993 xv535 Virago having issues starting it

PostAuthor: baloneypete » Thu Nov 12, 2020 2:27 pm

Started right up with no issues when I drove it around after buying it, tried again later and it started making a strange noise and then stopped, there's no noise at all when i'm tring to start it up, making sure its in neutral and i'm doing all the steps yet no luck

And FYI i'm pretty much a motorcycle noob and not very good with technical stuff, still learning to drive a bike, guy who sold it to me said to visit this forum if I'm having trouble with it

Sounds like the PO was expecting trouble! 535's have a bad habit of shearing the pins on the starter clutch. can you turn the engine over by hand? If this happens, the engine will be locked up.
