1983 Yamaha Virago XV500 – Still. Not. Running.

“The Year-long project we never expected to take so long.”

Timing is fixing. It is really trying to start. We even put gas straight into the carbs (with the butterfly open so gas would actually get into the engine).

Starting to think we should change the ignition coil and/or rebuild the carbs, again.

At this point we had exhausted the battery so we left it on the charger overnight.

We tried again the next morning, putting fuel in the carbs, etc and she still wouldn’t start.
