I was considering doing a Clayton Mod to my 2007 VTX 1300 with 18,000 miles and a friend of mine that works on Harleys and Metrics said that it could cause problems in the Top End of Motor. Can the Clayton Mod cause this problem? Or has anyone had any issues when modifying the stack exhaust?

I have a 1300c and the engine will die unless the choke is slightly pulled out regardless of how warm it is. I have recently done the Clayton mod and was wondering if that is causing this. I just got the bike a few weeks ago and didn't get a chance to ride it a whole lot before I did the Clayton...
I'm a new member and having a great time reading the hundreds of posts. I just bought my 06, 1300vtxR and I LOVE it coming off my 750 Shadow. I'm going to be doing the Decap Mod, K & N Filter, Pair Valve/DeSmog, Factory Pro Jet, and the Clayton Mod - 5 or 7 hole.

Well the weather here in Baltimore has been around 80 degree for a couple of days so i decided to tackle the Spring job I'd been thinking about all winter, the Clayton Mod.
I bought a long 15/32 Milwaukee drill bit and Home Depot had a set of Mikita bits, screw heads and other drivers for half...
After reading a lot on VTX Cafe I decided to start experimenting with my drill. I figured this was something I could do myself, and I was unsatisfied with the Singer sewing machine sound. Started with 3 holes, ended up with 7 plus 2 deep ones. Must say this was very positive experience on...
I drilled a few holes in the pressure plate as instructed and it sounds great! However, I noticed that my gas mileage has suffered and often I can smell gas fumes in the exhaust. Should I adjust something?
Everything is stock and I am a noob so be gentle :)
Hey guys, I was just about to pull the trigger on a set of Jug Huggers for 09 1300c when I saw this hole saw mod. On computer it sounds pretty good. Any comments anyone? How does the volume compare to a set of Bubs? It seems pretty deep sounding..:hmm2:
I want to do the Clayton mod on my 2005 VTX 1300C. Can someone point me to a detailed description of how to do the mod. Also, it seems that my exhuast tips are welded on. Do I have to cut throught the weld and weld back when done?
