    Im new to working on bikes and I was working on the carburetor. I saw that when you pull the carburetor out some coolant fluid will leak so you have to pinch the lines. I forgot to at the last minute but nothing leaked. The reservoir was bone dry with dirt and the cap under the gas tank has dirt...

    Hello all. I recently bought a 06 VTX 1300 C and I have had a weird issue. I was riding the other day going slow on a gravel road and decided to stop to double check where I was at. I noticed coolant on the left side of the motor. I did not see a overtemp light so I continued on and went home...

    Looking for some helping figuring out where these hoses go. I'm reconnecting everything after an engine swap and neither the Clymer manual nor manual download thread on this site seem to have any relevant info. There's also a couple electrical connections at the end of the album that I'm not...

    Please Help... I decided to do some maintenance this weekend since my radiator fan switch quit working, replaced gear oil, motor oil, plugs & wires, and of course the thermostat and the fan switch. I checked my coolant reservoir and it was just below of the full line, but when I removed the bolt...

    I have what appears to be a very small intermittent coolant leak on my 1300VTX. I see just a drip or 2 on left side of my engine case, between the cylinders. I can't see any place indicating where the coolant may be coming from, and the bike isn't running hot. Has anyone else experienced this?

    I purchased my '05 1300S in October of 2010, I've put 12k on it since then, however, from day one, mid October, 65 degree weather, the cooling fan would come on after 20 miles of highway riding within a minute of stopping at a light. Now that's it's warmer, it does it a lot more often. I've...

    So I noticed a bunch of green splatter marks all over the chrome housing near my oil filler cap. Couldn't seem to find a place where it was dripping, then realized it was coming from one of the engine fins. Dug out the flashlight and sure enough, there's a green drip hanging from a rubber hose...

    2006 VTX 1300C. How hard is it to replace the o-rings on the coolant pipe in between the cylinders. I believe I am leaking coolant from this pipe. Thanks.

    I drained and filled my radiator last year. I noticed that the reservoir was dry and decided to fill the tank to the cool line (yes the bike was cool at the time). I started the bike and let it run for a while and noticed that once warm the coolant started dripping out the overflow until the...

    Hey everyone! New to Honda and the VTX Cafe. I bought a used 04 VTX 1300 as my first cruiser. Ok, so I've put around 3K miles on this thing since I bought it and have noticed a low coolant level. I am thinking about checking all hoses, clamps, ect. But before I do I would like to refill and make...
