  1. Bike engine keeps stalling in 1st gear, choke NOT staying in pulled position

    Honda VTX 1300 Forums
    Hey guys, So I took my '04 VTX1300 for a ride today. Started it up, gave it a couple of throttle rolls and since it's a hot summer day, I didn't think I'd need to wait for long. So I rode around the blocks for 3-4 minutes. As soon as I reached a stop sign at an intersection (in 1st gear) and...

    Honda VTX 1300 Forums
    I just recently got this bike and it needs a little sorting out to get it ready for the summer. I went to start up the bike and pulled out the choke about 1/5 of the way out because without thinking, I treated it like my old bike. This bike would not start, but if I pulled it out further it...

    *** The Shop ~ I NEED URGENT MOTORCYCLE HELP!! ***
    So I got my bike.. Everything was fine on the way home. The guy who had owned it before GUTTED the exhaust. He removed the baffles completely in an effort to make it sound more like a harley. He installed LED's and extra chrome.. I needed to adjust the throttle cable a little tighter because...

    *** The Shop ~ I NEED URGENT MOTORCYCLE HELP!! ***
    I have an 05 VTX 1300c with HK strippers on it and about 10100 mles on it. As far as I know it was rejetted by the previous owner. It has ran great until a few weeks ago. A riding buddy said I must be running rich as he smells unburnt fuel coming from the exhaust. I also get a small amount...
