    Helpsos VTX 1300C Factory service manual

    Does anyone have any links for a service manual for a decent price. I have been searching the net and all the prices are pretty high. I need to do some carb cleaning and really need a good manual for teardown. Bike is running crappy due to the new fuel they sell here in florida. 10 percent ethanol.

    Service manual is available for free here onsite...It's a red sticky post on the 1300 board...

    You say you need to tear down because of 10% ethanol blend fuel...That's all they've sold in my area for a good 20 years or more and my bike has always ran great...Back 20+ years ago the 10% ethanol mix caused all kinds of problems with carb parts, but they sorted that all out pretty quickly...My '81 Caddy runs the same gas my bike does and runs fine..I'm thinking you don't really need to take the carb apart on a 2007, but probably just needs some fine-tuning....Maybe describe what's wrong and we can help you get it right...

    It just started running poorly at slow speeds. Popping and Bucking. At faster speeds it is fine and seems to idle normal. I blamed the fuel because they just started selling this stuff where I live.

    Probably because of the not-needed jet kit you mentioned in another thread...No jet kit needed with just an exhaust mod....Put the stock parts back in the carb and it will run just fine...

    Seems kind of funny that it has been running fine with the jet kit for 10 months until a couple of days ago. Do you think it could be a gummed up carb? It has been sitting up for a few weeks.

    If it had been running fine the way it was jetted, then I would say it is probably something else. The ethanol can gum up the carb if it sets in there (just like any fuel).
    We have had the 10% ethanol around here for a long time now and I haven't had any issues with it, but I generally go through a tank of fuel every other day.

    Glen's VTX garage sells a tool to adjust the A/F screw without haveing to remove anything. Great tool and I got mine in about 3 days after placing the order.

    I got one from ebay for $42 from this seller: orod1248

    I know I could have downloaded one for free, but I like to have it in front of me in paper when I'm working on stuff, and that was the best price I found. Delivery was fast and quality was good, etc, etc...
