  1. Strange noise when applying the hand break...

    Honda VTX 1300 Forums
    Just wondering if anyone has experience this. It's a buzz-sound when the bike is running/ignition is on. When the bike is stopped it makes a "click" sound every time I apply the break handle.

  6. Rattling under rear fender

    Honda VTX 1300 Forums
    I've recently removed the back seat, luggage rack and sissy bar and I guess the weight loss of doing so has attributed to some rattling noise under the rear fender. It's got to be one of the supports, but I wondered if any of you have experienced and/or resolved this issue? It's bugging the...
