  1. i got a problem with my 98 vx Virago sometimes after i ride it a a while then rest it the bike wont start the next time i go to start it. and i have to push it and let the clutch out in first to push the engine to work, after that the bike will start perfect.

    note: it still turns over just doesnt fire
  2. Maybe your battery might need attention or replacing. Mine started doing that as a sign that the battery was on the way out, but after replacing, no starting dramas :)
  3. If its the battery the next time it wont start try it on a car battery (don't have the car running). I'd bet the problem is electrical, but you'ld need someone else to pin point it for you.
  4. ok ty gonna get the battery cheked
  5. Problems fixed got nex battery, had to take it back as it had a dead cell went got another one and works fine
