    Not a Virago if it has chain drive.
    - Former owner of an XV920 chain-drive Yamaha V-twin

    I read they sleeved the 920 engine to make a 750 race engine.

    The Virago 250 was chain drive but the bigger 535, 750, 920, 1000 and 1100 were all shafties. I believe someone in this thread posted about his 250 street tracker with a steepened head tube that looks much less like a cruiser than the stockers do. Very cool. "Virago" was a cruiser in Yamahaspeak.

    The XV920R was only imported here for two years and had standard styling. In addition to the driveline, differences include forks and front discs (two on the R and not slotted), tank, seat, bars, headlight, pipes, tail section, rear wheel diameter, etc. Never had a name, only the model number designation although you'll encounter some folks who call it the 920 Seca because Seca was the designation for Yamaha's sport bikes at the time. There was a Seca 900 but it was an I-4.

    Here's a pic of the Euro 980cc version (TR1) made into a tracker by a guy named Sapp Koch.

    Jimie Filice, a friend of mine was his flat track team manager back in the 80's. Anyone heard of Stormy Chisler from Sacramento?
