Re: Clean and Simple II Virago

I had an 82 Virago 920 many years ago. That was the only model and year for the square headlight and digital dash. I pulled the starter apart when I got the bike with 10K, saw the poor design but didn't really see anything other than the corner of the gears chewed up a little. It didn't look any different inside after I put 15k more miles on it. It comes from the solenoid slamming the straight cut gears together. It sounds like it's going to explode but it works if you keep the charging system and battery in good shape.

Looking forward to seeing what you make of it.

any title issues with getting a custom frame on the road?
I will be keeping the stock neck so it will have the VIN number on it and so it should be a problem. However to title a custom framed bike is pretty easy. you just have to certify ownership and go through a safety inspection with the state police.

okay so i only had about an hour yesterday to work on the bike due to some conflicts, and should have more time today, however i was able to make some headway it stripping it down.

I am really sorry for the crappy pics, my camera was having a bad day.



just some of the crap i pulled off of this thing


Is it just me, or does this bike have a lot of electronics for a carb, air-cooled bike? Maybe because of the digital gauges? i am going to go through the wiring diagram and see what i can cut out.

thanks!

the wire diagram confuses me, seems like a lot of redundant wiring for the self cancelling turn signals
