Yamaha XV750SE/Virago starter query

Discussion in 'Motorbike Technical Discussion' started by Chris N Deuchar, May 1, 2008.

  1. I know the subject of starters on the early XVs and Viragos is a hot
    one but somewhere I read that a worthwhile upgrade was to swap the
    standard XV750 starter for a modified XS650 starter. I kept my eyes
    open for such a beast, and thought I had found one, but after some
    preliminary dismantling the procedure is not obvious.

    So, was the original rumour 'misinformation' or have I in fact not
    got a proper XS650 starter to attempt the replacement? I have put a
    photo of them both at http://www.deuchars.org.uk/temp/11032008.jpg
    and would be grateful for any advice. Oh yes, and the genuine XV one
    is on the right! Confirmation of the one on the left as XS650 or
    non-XS650 would be a good start (ho ho!). The supplier of the latter
    wasn't 100% sure wether it was XS650 or possibly XS750.
