  1. Towing across country

    Honda VTX 1300 Forums
    lol. That would be the ticket to tow the Accord! I REALLY wish I could ride the VTX, but I have to have the auto. I'm thinking the bike is about 800 pounds max, so I think my Accord would be fine.
  2. Towing across country

    Honda VTX 1300 Forums
    I'm moving from NC to Oregon... and I have to make a decision about my bike... sale, tow, or ship. I'm heading out in my Honda Accord coupe in a few weeks. Of course, I want to take my bike as there will be some awesome opportunities for riding. My wife thinks I'm nuts for considering towing...
  3. 600 mile maintenance

    Honda VTX 1300 Forums
    I recently had a problem with the battery cables being loose on my bike too (must be a common thing for new VTXs). There is a dealer right next to where I work, they took it in the back, brought it out five minutes later and didn't charge me a thing. It just goes to show there are good...

    I've got the Show Chrome crash bars, and they have been great. No problems with scraping the ground, or getting in the way. My bike's been dropped twice, and they have stood up to the test. They kept the bike clear of the ground, preventing damage to the bike and rider, plus they keep it at...
  5. Saftey tips for new riders

    Honda VTX 1300 Forums
    I didn't see this mentioned before, but there are some things you can do to your bike to improve safety also. IMO, highway bars are the best accessory you could possibly add to your bike, not only will it protect your legs, but also your bike (there is also the added benefit of putting foot...
  6. Help! I'm having electrial issues.

    Honda VTX 1300 Forums
    Thanks Dilldawg. That was exactly what I was wondering, where the hell is the alternator. Is a car the same way? In that if you start the car, then disconnect the battery, it will stop the car? I guess I've just always assumed that after the vehicle started, the battery wasn't necessary...
  7. Help! I'm having electrial issues.

    Honda VTX 1300 Forums
    Thanks for everybody's help! As you can see, I've got a lot to learn. I've still got a couple of questions if somebody doesn't mind enlightening me. Does the battery have to stay connected just to keep a circuit from being broken? What recharges the battery?
  8. Help! I'm having electrial issues.

    Honda VTX 1300 Forums
    Yep, DillDawg hit it right on the head (thanks dude!) . I work right next to a Honda place, took it in at lunch, and they tightened up the cables. The guy said they were pretty loose. Still, I wonder if I'm having two problems here. I can see the loose cables preventing the bike from...
  9. Help! I'm having electrial issues.

    Honda VTX 1300 Forums
    Ah! I forgot about that, and I have heard that before. By the time I had found out about it, it was probably too late. I'm still under warranty, so I guess they will replace that switch for free? Or is there an after market switch that I should think about getting? Will do!
  10. Help! I'm having electrial issues.

    This morning, I hopped in the saddle, all excited about the ride, and my bubble was quickly busted. I hadn't started my bike in a week, due to the weather, so I had to give the throttle a couple of twists and then hit the start button. Everythin seemed normal, first time it turned over, then...

    I just saw those Harley fog lights yesterday at the dealer, they look really nice. Did you put those on your bike starman? Or anyone else, for that matter?

    Are you accelerating through the turns? That will also help raise your bike a little bit.
