Read the bulletins, look at the diagrams. Follow all of the directions for best results. Fix it right or have it fixed for you- either way include my parts kit- you'll always be glad you did.

This kit is designed for the do-it-yourselfer with some motorcycle experience, and you can see a definite improvement in your bike's ability to start after performing this upgrade.

If your bike has no engagement before it clatters to a stop- you need my flywheel & #2 Idler remanufacture. Why- your teeth are very worn. Don't listen to the other guy's ad as he is a con. He will tell you anything to make a sale. He even says the flywheel is made of hardened steel and doesn't wear. Bullxxxx! He says only the #2 Idler gear wears. Same answer. If you have over 13000 miles on your bike (will vary due to useage and whether your bike was a commuter bike used for long trips) the right solution is getting your Flywheel teeth and #2 Idler gear teeth redone by me on my custom machine. See my other ad listing.

Enjoy your bike, you'll love it once you get it to run.

Get your Genuine Kit and Enjoy riding your Virago !

Be sure to check out ALL of my ad listings- More Great Virago Items- Just what you were looking for!

Some words of advise- never drill or pin your starter. Never flip your #2 Idler gear and install it backwards. If you see a seller advising you to do these things- don't buy that product.

Reasons to buy my Virago Starter Shim Kit over the other guys kit:
1) High Quality Parts (2 of his parts come from a hardware store)
2) Works excellent due to good design (his falls off and slips dispite the expensive manufacturing machine due to poor design)
3) Doesn't tear up the Flywheel (his does)
4) Everything I sell is original and non-copied off someone else. (he copied everything including the photos)
5) Motorcycle Dealerships use my kits (sometimes dealerships buy his a few times and then switch to mine because it works better)
6) My kit eliminates the clatter sound and helps it engage excellent (his kit works for as long as it takes for you to write positive feedback- reminds you of manufacturer's warranties on appliances which break down just after the warranty period is up- right?
7) Solves internal starter slippage problems (his solution is to over tighten bolts and solves one problem by creating another problem - bad idea)
8) I check my email regularly and answer questions promptly- the other guy doesn't. And believe me you will have a domino-effect of problems after installing the other guy's stuff.
Keep reading for more facts:

Beware of the other guy's advertisements because he has a VIVID imagination. For example, he says beware of other sellers advising you to drill through your starter. WHO IS ADVISING THAT? ANYONE? I haven't seen ANY seller advising that.

I have however seen Internet forum discussions talking about this topic. Listen, when you get free information from forums - you take your chances on the information. Sellers, on the other hand need to give 100% true accurate by-the-book answers. I DO! My genuine products come in their original bag, and I ADVISE you to read the specifications and tighten your bolts as listed in the bulletin. Don't listen to amateurs. WHY? Because you can and will ruin your bike. How do I know? I remanufacture Virago Flywheels (see my other ad listing) and almost every single one comes in chewed up and requires extensive time and effort to fix. Why- because the other guy's kit is the FIRST thing most people install when they hear the clatter. THE OTHER GUY'S KIT IS A BAD KIT and will ruin your flywheel. Do not follow the other people buying that product. Follow my advice and avoid the other guy's stuff. Get my non-damaging truly beneficial kit right here.

On the other hand, he is advising people to overtighten their starter head locking it down. At the same time he is talking about the pinning of the starter (no seller is advising you do this) he mentions that backfiring is a risk. Well listen- if you lock down your starter and over tighten your bolts (see Yamaha service bulletin in this listing for the ABSOLUTE FACTS) what do you think you are doing in case of a backfire? THE SAME THING. The other guy is an amateur, and you should regard his ad as BullXXXX. He is advising you against MAKE-BELIEVE sellers who advise you to do things that he mentions. He is the ONLY CHEAP fix there is. You get what you pay for. He will beat any deal because his is all non-genuine and the LOWEST CHEAPEST QUALITY. He warns you against cheap sellers- listen HE IS the cheap (as in junk) seller.

If you look at the other guy's ad you will see some things that you may not notice without me pointing it out. Don't park your bike on the grass with your kickstand. Bad idea. Don't walk on grass with high heels. Bad idea. Don't write the word America or American on someone's XXX. Bad idea. Selling Virago parts but showing a different model bike in your photo. Bad Idea.

And another thing, I don't show my delivery man/woman photos. You know why? You wouldn't want them to forget their pants, but they will deliver your product carefully and promptly. And they won't forget their pants or your package guaranteed.

Trust Dr Virago Pete products to get your bike to run right! No gimmicks. All parts will be in their original factory package so you know it is Genuine.

There's no better time to get your bike in shape. Some elbow grease today gets you ready for riding season. Don't put it off another day.
