  1. Question VTX 1300 Clayton Modification?

    Honda VTX 1300 Forums
    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?

  3. Will A/F screw fix my problem?

    Honda VTX 1300 Forums
    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.

    Honda VTX 1300 Forums
    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...
  7. Clayton Mod Question

    Honda VTX 1300 Forums
    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 :)

    Honda VTX 1300 Forums
    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:

    Honda VTX 1300 Forums
    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?
