1983 Yamaha Virago 500 from United States of America
Reminds me of a boat. It's fun while it's working, but usually lets you down
Dual carbs are always out of sync. Manufacturer's recommendations are not accurate. I found a lot of extras were added to this bike that were best removed. After going from a dual carb to a single carb it has become reliable. The forums are the best place to find service information. The bike corners great once you get the suspension rebuilt; the only drawback is the no support from Yamaha for factory part offerings.
It can be a great bike if you are willing to put the money into it.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Don't Know
