It's perfectly normal for an engine with a carb to have an air filter that smells like gasoline. The reason being is because of a concept called "fuel stand off" - in a nutshell, the air that is going through your carbs towards the cylinders gets bounced back towards the air filter when the intake valves close. Since carbs aren't that smart, the air coming back towards the filter picks up even more fuel from the float bowl, and then heads in to your air filter box to say hello.

Shop manual will have lower end overhaul in engine section. Your looking for plain bearing set up. Which uses Plasti guage method of color and crush width to determine correct bearing size.

1986 Honda VF... | Answered on Feb 09, 2009


Check the cams also the steering bearing. Both is difficult to check
but that were the things I heard. It also has problems with overheating
at the rear cylinders.
Keep in mind that is 15 years old, very very heavy and you will
recognize
it while driving. I'm satisfied with Metzeler tires on it. You won't
get any newer tires fitting to the 16" front wheel.
If it runs, it runs great, but very difficult for maintenence.

I had to take mine to a man in Berwick and he did it for me really cheap. He has his own place. If I find his name I will send it to you. He charges less than half of everyone else.

your crank case oil lubricates all of your internals including your clutch pack! if your crankcase oil is full and you clutch doesn't work still drain you oil and remove the right side crankcase cover that is where your clutch pack resides remove the clutch basket and check the clutch pack plates for ware they may need replacement! Empty your gas tank and start with fresh gas good chance your carburetors are gummed up from stale gas which will make it run rough and usually loose the ability to idle! as for your font brake check to make sure the master cylinder for it is topped up with fluid is so try bleeding it if after bleeding the brakes no improvement is noticed remove the front brake assembly pull the pads off and check to see if there is any movement in the calipers themselves they may have seized from sitting! and there is no honda virago, virago is a yamaha and i think if u have an 82 xv its a yamaha virago

Hi, Mike before diagnosing any brake light issue always check the bulb and fuse first for integrity a brake light staying on is usually caused by the front brake light switch, which is mechanical, not disengaging. On early models moving the throttle control housing closer to the front brake master cylinder is the main fix. On late models, the switch gets tweaked and needs to be realigned. A brake light that does not come on when the brake lever is applied can be caused by a faulty switch or no continuity in the wiring at the switch. The rear brake light switch is hydraulic and it is extremely rare to malfunction in a closed circuit condition causing the brake light to stay on. Usually, rear brake light switch issues are caused by no brake pedal free play or a sticky rear master cylinder piston. A brake light that does not come on when the rear brake pedal is depressed can be caused by a faulty switch, air contamination in the brake line, or no continuity in the wiring at the switch. Finally, most tail light wiring harnesses run under the rear fender held in place by spot welded clips. Worn out rear shocks or lowered suspension can bottom out causing the rear tire to come in contact with the wiring harness, rubbing the insulation off, exposing the bare metal inner core, allowing it to break or short out.
