The Yamaha Virago 1100 was the next generation of the Virago 750 and was manufactured from the early '80s until the late 1990s. Unlike some of its predecessors, which had flawed starter design, the 1100s starter system was greatly improved upon. The starter works in conjunction with the battery to start the bike. Despite its improvements, you may have to remove the starter if you ever have to replace it with a new one.
