Virago Oil Filter Location

Question:

Were is the oil filter? {Ben, Utah, USA 1983 Yamaha Virago}

Answer:

I do not know if Ben is referring to the Virago XV750 or the Virago XV920. They were both produced in 1983. The engines are very similar so the answer is the same either way.

The oil filter is a paper cartridge type, located under the oil filter cover on the lower right hand side of the engine. Look for a small, round engine cover with 3 hex head or allen head bolts.

The photo below is of a 1983 XV750 Virago 750. You can see the filter cover below the HA in Yamaha.
