Please excuse my late response to your question. The power supply, in Vietnam, is only slightly more reliable than the internet. I don't have any information for the 400cc model. The only workshop manual I could find is the Haynes Service and Repair Manual. It covers the Yamaha XV (Virago) V-Twins from 1981 to 2003. Unfortunately, for us, it states that the 535 is the smallest of the XV range. Not very encouraging when you own a 400. Anyway, from experience, I have found that most components for the 535 are interchangable with the 400 . . . except the IC Ignitor box, which I'm still having problems with. Find below the specs for the 535. As I've already stated, they're very similar to the 400. Performance: Maximum power: 33.9 kW @ 7500 rpm Maximum torque: 47 Nm @ 6000 rpm Top speed: 158 km/h Acceleration: Time to cover standing start 1/4 mile: 14.8 seconds Terminal speed after 1/4 mile: 138.6 km/h Average fuel consumption: 5.2 litres/100 km Fuel tank capacity: 8.6 litres Fuel tank range: 165 km Weights and Dimensions: Wheelbase: 1511 mm Overall length: 2210 mm Overall width: 815 mm Overall height: 1100 mm Seat height: 700mm Ground clearance (minimum): 145 mm Weight (with oil and full fuel tank, i.e. wet): 185 kg Engine: Type: Air cooled, 75o V-twin Capacity: 535 cc Bore and stroke: 76.0 x 59.0 mm Compression ratio: 9.0:1 Camshafts: SOHC, chain driven Valves: 2 valves per cylinder Fuel system: 2 x 34 mm Mikuni carburettors Clutch: Wet multi-plate, cable operated Transmission: 5 speed constant mesh Final drive: shaft Chassis: Type: Pressed steel, backbone frame Rake and trail: 31.5o, 125 mm Front suspension: Telescopic forks Rear suspension: Twin shocks with preload adjustment Tyre sizes: Front: 3.00S19 4PR Rear: 140/90 15 M/C 70S Brakes: Front: Single disc with single-piston caliper Rear: 200 mm drum Again, the above specs should be used as a guide only.
