Here is a collection of wiring diagrams I have accumulated threw the years. These are Virago specific but they can be easily adapted to your needs.

Have you ever run across an 81 with a different diode? I have one with a different plug and 6 wires on it, that doesn't match the posted wiring diagrams. Just fishing for thoughts......

When you say "diode" do you mean rectifier?

it is a diode pack. not sure of exact function. involves oil sensor, kick stand switch, neutral switches,etc

Well, that one has got me stumped. Never seen that before. After much research I have deciphered that it monitors for the most part but does have some control of the oil light. After studying the diagram, I would say that for the most part it is useless. It you remove it and run a jumper between the two black wires your oil light will still work as normal and eliminate it entirely. What kind of problems are you having.

No problems with that really, just that the sky blue wire is also tied to the neutral light and neutral safety switch. The problem came on my 83, when I smoked the diode on that circuit, and said to myself, "Self, that isn't a big obstacle, as I have a wiring harness from an 81 sitting on the bench." Only thing was, when I took the diode assembly off the 81 harness, it only had 6 wires, and a different plug, so it was useless. I just wondered if anybody else had ever seen that, since these are the only wiring diagrams I have seen floating around. I may look at some of the other 80 model and early 81 model yamahas and see if this is some kind of model year/type carryover from something else until the real stuff came on the production line.

it is an AND-OR circuit.
using diodes to do it.

For anyone interested, I was trying to decypher some ignition problems on an 84 1000 and noticed the 84/85 700-1000 Haynes diagram (the one in the wiring diagrams KB) is out - way out.....

So with the help of the genuine Yammy diagrams I have rubbed out the incorrect wires and drawn in the correct ones.

Anyone who was trying to trace a fault may have discovered that there was acutally NO power to the ignition system after releasing the starter button, which would have been difficult in itself since the only thing powering the starter relay was the regulator/rectifier, and the ignition and headlamp power circuits were both running off the signal fuse!!!

Hope this helps someone, cheers, Dave.

PS - Matthew, want to add this to the list of diagrams?

sure if it wasn't password protected, it wants me to log in.

Oops.. forgot about that!!

Matthew, I PM'd you the user/p-word, if anyone else wants it send me a PM. Just keeping them out of the general publics eyes and for enthusiasts only.

One of those wiring diagrams in the top part of the tech article was created by me. The bottom one is my wiring diagram. The others are modified versions of my original. I don't mind it being posted but give the credit where it's due.

Sorry, Scott. Plagiarism was not an intent just passing info, I apologize for using yours, although it being 2 years old, I donít remember even posting this, Sorry Mate!

At first I thought it was the one that I had created for my chopper, but that is actually one that I had made for Bykrmom for her 920.
It's all good, I hope it has helped some folks.
