  1. Question Glen's Permanent A/F tool - Where does the adjustment knob come out?

    Honda VTX 1300 Forums
    I’ve just performed a “Penta Micro Air Box Mod”, but in my case it is only a “triple” micro mod, as I only added three scoops to my air box. http://www.vtxcafe.com/showthread.php/101618-Airbox-Mod!-quot-Penta-Micro-Charger-quot-15-tunable-and-nice-performance-gain I will be doing the “Hole...
  2. Headlight/Turn Signal Mod -- Anyone seen this?

    Honda VTX 1800 Forums
    OK, so I'm relatively new to VTX's, got mine about a month ago and have been loving it and this forum as well. My bike is an 03 1800 C, and it came to me with quite a few mods already -- lots of chrome, pipes, seat, etc... One mod in particular that stands out to me, is the front headlight/turn...
  3. Scar Mod Questions??

    Engine
    Has anyone heard of (I'm sure many have), or done the Scar Mod on your X? If so, how much of a difference did it make? I was searching for instructions and reviews and found some vague answers. I did find this video and it helped a lot, but I'm wondering if this is all I would need to do, or is...
  4. Exhaust question- straight pipe mod

    Honda VTX 1300 Forums
    I'm sure somewhere this question has been asked and answered but I am wondering if anyone has ever taken off the mufflers and heat shields on their 1300 and welded straight pipes on and wrapped with exhaust wrap? If so, how did they sound? For you guys that are more mechanically inclind- Are...

  6. SPyKER Mods new intake grills coming

    General VTX/Motorcycle Topics
    A few new grills are on there way. A couple are custom art orders, mostly because I can't sell copyrighted or licensed designs, but a couple are for everyone. Besides these, there is a fallen soldier set, a stanley cup, a flaming skull, a VTX (1300 or 1800) set, and a machine-cut lexan...

    Folks, I really appreciate your interest in my cover mods and grills over the past few years. I apologize for not responding to your email requests and PMs over the past few months. What was planned as a one-month shutdown had to become a 3-month shutdown due to family, fulltime career, and...
  8. A license plate mod ... finally! (Pic Heavy!!)

    Honda VTX 1800 Forums
    I finally got it done! Well maybe that should be that I finally did something about the mess on my rear fender. When I got the bike in 2008 I knew some things had been changed but was not quite sure of what all the modifications were. But I got a little shock when we went to put the plates on...

  10. Question 1300 C pipe plate mod?

    Honda VTX 1300 Forums
    Has anybody tried to just cut out the entire black plate and pull the tail pipe from the 1300 C slash pipes? I imagine it would be similar to a kiwi mod, but no removal of the tip, and there's still the first baffle untouched. I'm curious to see if it would look and sound right.
