It's a TR1 same motor as the bigger virago's the starter clutch is such a bad design in these, Yamaha even put a magnet in to catch the swarf in the later models

As I said before look on you tube there are many video's of this very same problem being sorted

Check out Dr Virago's chanel he is one of the top Virago men on there

Had similar on an XV1100, basically the windings had gone in the starter and ended up fitting a new one. It wasn't fucking cheap but it had no kick start!!!

starter motor?

Yup. Poorly designed motor that sits right at the front of the engine getting all the crappy spray off the front wheel, top design Yamaha...
