dear 84 yamaha first thing i would do is to jack the front end of the bic off the ground and spin the front wheel and look to see if things look true . also listen for any slight noise coming from the wheel bearing. it is likely a bad front tire jim

Hello Mike...If the rear cylinders aren't firing I would start by checking for defective plug wires. Visual, for cracks and with an ohm meter for resistance. Test your coils, same principal, test to see if their is power to the coils. Your bike has a TCI box thats located in a not so good spot....that really takes abuse. This is "brain" a circuit board. It gets hot, cools down, and moisture inside is the result, over the years it finally gives up. The voltage to the coils travels through the TCI. If you aren't getting 12 volts, then corrosion, faulty circuit, leaking capicitors inside the "box" are at fault. I have heard of some riders opening the TCI, letting the sun dry it out and remounting in a different location, I have replaced several, on the early viragos. They have been discontinued. i found several on ebay, also i know a biker that can repair solder these, if needed.

I'll include the obvious, since I'm not sure exactly what you need:
Front tire - 150/80-16 Dunlop D404F or Bridgestone G705, recommended inflation 36 p.s.i.
Rear tire - 150/90-15 Dunlop D404 or Bridgestone G702, recommended inflation 36 p.s.i., 41 p.s.i. with passenger or load.
The front tire can be removed (motorcycle on lift) without loosening calipers or any other parts once axle shaft has been withdrawn; after the tire has been changed and the wheel and axle shaft is back in place, torque for the axle nut is 58 ft.-lbs (78 nm) and the pinch nut is 14 ft.-lbs. (19 nm).
The rear tire requires removal of the right saddlebag and brake caliper, as well as the axle shaft. During reassembly, the torque for the axle nut is 110 ft.-lbs. (150 nm), for the pinch nut on the swing arm 17 ft.-lbs (23 nm). Bolts for the caliper should be torqued to 30 ft.-lbs. (40 nm).
It's a good idea to lubricate the drive splines in the rear wheel and the mating shaft in the final drive while the rear wheel is out.
