    Finally, Fuel Injection for the VTX 1300?

    Looks like my prayers for a fuel injection system for the VTX 1300 have been answered. The 2010 Honda Fury, which seems to be using the same engine as the VTX 1300 (fingers are crossed here), is coming with......FUEL INJECTION!!!!!!

    Hopefully this swap with be easy. Now, as soon as ANY of you hear of an insurance salvaged FURY, contact me.

    By the way, its a sweeeeeeet look'n bike...38 degree rake, 21" front wheel, 200 rear tire, low seat height, nice pull back on the handlebars, and the frame painted the same as the sheet metal.

    My ONLY concern is...whose idea was it for the tiny 3.8 gallon tank?

    It would be nice if it is the same engine. A friend of mine is interested in fuel injection also for his VTX1300. Good luck on finding a salvaged FURY. For gas mileage, you should hopefully get 150 miles on a tank of gas.

    Aw just go out and buy one, at 12,000 apiece we should all get one as a spare bike for the weekend.



    Is that a belt drive I see?

    Fuel injection wouldn't be bad but it could be expensive.

    The real one looks good, but I am not into the bar hopper type bike. This would be why it has the small tank. Just like most of the bar hoppers out there!

    You would need a fuel pump. Most of the times there in the fuel tank. More wires and another relay. Plus the FI system it self. Cheaper to a VTX1800

    If you read his post you would see he would look for a wrecked salvage Fury after they have been out for a bit.

    I don't think it would be a big deal to strip one and put all the goodies on a normal X, most fuel pumps can be mounted outside a tank.

    if there is the will there is a way.

    You never know it might be on the 2010 that is the year of the fury.
