  1. Question Bought a bike that sat for years, dies on slow throttle roll on

    Honda VTX 1300 Forums
    Hello All, I recently purchased a 2006 VTX1300. It has sat for years and didn't run at all when I first got it. I have cleaned out the bottom of the carb (the various jets and the float bowl etc.) and I have now gotten it to turn over and idle as long as the choke is pulled out. At full choke...

    I just recently purchased a 2006 vtx1300C. I have put Freedom Performance sharp curve radius exhaust on it but still have stock breather. When riding, it would hesitate when accelerating after having slowed down for a turn. So I bought the factory pro stage 3 jet kit. I have the needle on...

    Introduce yourself and say hello if you like...
    I have a 2003 VTX 1300S, it has about 3800 miles on it, kurykian hypercharger, and DG Hard Krome pipes. I'm having an issue with rev out under load. Many have said it's a backpressure issue, many have said it's a jetting issue. I'm beyond confused since my last cruiser was fuel injected. I...

  7. Bike Dies When I Twist The Throttle. HEEEELLLLLLPPPPPPP!!!

    *** The Shop ~ I NEED URGENT MOTORCYCLE HELP!! ***
    A little back story...... Two weeks ago I hopped on my bike to go to work. It started up and seemed to be idling very weak. Every time I would twist the throttle, the bike would die. After a couple restarts the bike wouldn't start at all, so I hopped in my Ford Explorer (which died the next...
  8. Question new 1300C owner looking for advice/help

    Honda VTX 1300 Forums
    got my 07 1300C about 2 months ago with only 4600 miles on it, so it wasn't ridden much to begin with and I'm sure it sat for a while before I got it. A little carb/fuel injector cleaner went a long way in getting it to run better right away. I decided it was to quiet with the stock setup, so...
  9. Carb damage? Won't take quick throttle

    *** The Shop ~ I NEED URGENT MOTORCYCLE HELP!! ***
    Being the genius auto mechanic that I am I tried something very common place on a automobile carburetor when there are running issues. I thought I may have a jet blockage so I tried to choke the carb at wide open throttle. Now the bike won't take anything but a very slow roll on the throttle. If...

  12. Question Carb adjustment need

    Honda VTX 1300 Forums
    I don't understand... why do I have to adjust the carb when I replace the stock exhaust system? I assume it's because I open the engine up with less back pressure, resulting in more available power, but then the "stock" carb settings make the engine run lean. I've seen references to something...
  13. How do I finish the rejet?

    *** The Shop ~ I NEED URGENT MOTORCYCLE HELP!! ***
    I put new pipes on my bike, opened the a/f screw 2.5 turns and put a thunder needle on the third rung from the top. First off, do I need to change the jets (I think the bike runs hot and definitely backfires)? Second, how do I open the carb without taking it out (I don't trust myself to take it...
  14. VTX 1300 Carburetor Adjustment

    Performance Upgrades/Mods
    You may have just purchased a new exhaust and/or air intake and are wondering how you should "tune" the carburetor. First off if you just "fire the bike up" with the new parts installed, THE BIKE WILL RUN. Depending on how "free flowing" the aftermarket parts are that you installed the bike will...
