That's an old Virago. Why are you taking the engine apart ? And how far down are you dismantling the engine ?

I had a 700cc Virago years ago that was an excellent bike. Most of the virago's had starter grenading problems (mine didn't) but the starter grenading was from improper starting techniques than actual bad parts. The electronic read out Viragos had electrical problems as well (like the 900 series).
