Does Virgin have a domestic checkin at the intl terminal after going through customs?

If your bags are already tagged to your final destination they can take them there. If it's two separate reservations and your bags are not tagged to your final destination, you have to take them with you to Terminal 2 to check them.
I'm a US citizen arriving at the intl terminal on Korean Air at 10.50 am. I am connecting to Virgin domestic with a flight departure time of 4.10 pm. I understand that I will have to go security again and recheck my bag at terminal 2. Is that enough time?
Am arriving via Singapore Airlines from Singapore at 0940. Connecting via Virgin to San Diego at 1208. Is it enough time to clear immigration , collect bags , recheck in and reach the gate with time to spare ?
Yes, that is just enough time if everything goes smoothly and both flights are on the same reservation. You will also have to go through security.

Thanks Zap I booked for a later connection as I didn't want to take the risk.
Hi, we are arriving into SFO at 8.45pm on United from Cancun, then the flight on Air NZ To Auckland at 9.45pm, these are all booked on the same ticket, is this enough time and do we have to clear customs?
No, that is not enough time. You need to find a different itinerary. You have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and to your departure gate.
I'm flying into San Francisco and catching a connecting flight out to Honolulu in September. I have 1hour and 20 mins time between flights, is this enough? Also I know I have to go through immigration and recheck my luggage, but do I need to go through security again or is it just straight through from recheck to board the plane? Any help would be great. Thank you
Where are you flying into SFO from? What airlines are you flying?
Flying in from London Heathrow, united airlines throughout, sorry I should've thought about putting that too.
Yes, you will have to go through security after clearing US Customs and re-checking your bags. That is a very difficult connection.
Am I likely to make the connection or am I better off attempting to change my flights? I should land in SFO at 3:15pm if this makes any difference?
