does the neutral light come on? Check fuses?  Will it crank if you short across the starter relay?

Maybe here....  https://www.viragohelp.com/virago-ignition-systems/

I have heard these bikes have starter problems, so there should be how to fix videos on YouTube.  That is a good place to start perhaps.

General Discussion / Honda CRF

I was at the BC Auction building today and they had a Honda CRF for auction.  I wonder what it will go for.  Looked in decent condition.  They also had a 2009 Ford Ranger 4x4 for auction if any  one is interested.

Well charged up the 750 and rode it a few times no problem. Robbyn and I went for a ride Saturday night for about an hour.  We stopped off at Dairy Queen for some ice cream.  But when I went to start the bike it would not.  Lots of power put no starter.  Sounds like when the bike is left in gear and it shuts down the starter unless you pull in the clutch.  Fortunately I was on Damon Blvd and pushed it down the hill was able to get it bumped started about half way down.  So I was able to ride back up the hill to pick up Robbyn.  Now have to figure out what is wrong with it.  Must be one of the fail safe switches that has maybe failed?  Any ideas?

General Discussion / Handy Battery Minder
« Last post by stevecrout on July 16, 2018, 06:57:52 AM »
Came across what looks like a real handy battery minder / solar powered charger from Canadian Tire.  Coleman brand so that's a good start.  this little rig has 3 different plug in options and operates on indirect light as well. It purports to have an auto-shut-off built in to prevent overcharging and charges as the top rate of 2.5 watts.    With a 5 year guarantee and costing $19.95 it's worth a look and I'm trying out a few of them.  I often park a vehicle outside my place for over a month or so when I'm gone and this should take care of the battery depleting itself while running the alarms etc.

It's also nice to have some of the bikes plugged into it and not have the usual charger and cables going all over the place.

we'll see

If the weather is ok, then Friday the 20th.  I think it's meet at the Hart Timmies at 5pm, leave by 5:30 if I recall.  Ride to Zspmewhere around McLeod Lake for the evening. More details to be ironed out Tuesday.

Can anyone confirm the rumour that this ride will be next weekend, July 20th - July 22nd? Any other details would be appreciated as well: departure point, time, etc.

I'm not committed yet, just considering it. It'll be a last minute decision for me.

Theo.

Started in the middle of May. Photobucket caved when everybody voted with their feet.  They've installed a new management team with new ideas to try and win back their customer base.

General Discussion / Photos back

In "Complete Rebuilds" I have documented my progress with photos.  Until my most recent (XS1100 Trike) I posted photos via Photobucket.

A couple years ago, Photobucket demanded $$$ to keep access to my photos which I declined.   All my photos were replaced with some Photobucket logo.  I switched to Imgur which I now use to post photos effortlessly.

Today while googling around, a photo of my GS650 Monoshock conversion popped up and, lo and behold, the photos are  back on.

Peace & Grease, Dennis
