  2. 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. The noise comes from the handle area near the break-fluid reservoir. This happened after I removed the...

    I just bought a 2007 X 1300 with 1,900 miles on it(picking it up in 2 weeks). The previous owner installed DG Hard Krome K-2's himself. After looking for reviews on this exhaust (our of sheer curiosity), I found a review by the guy I'm buying this bike from! It has me slightly concerned...
  7. Question Another backfire question

    Honda VTX 1300 Forums
    Hi. I have a 2006 Honda VTX 1300c. I have Bubs Jughugger pipes and a kuryakn hyper charger. I put a new needle in the carb and adjusted the a/f screw when I did these mods. The bike ran fine with the minor crackling / popping that comes with not doing the pair valve removal. I did these...

  10. Misfiring at warm restart

    Honda VTX 1300 Forums
    Thank you to all who got me through 90% of my issues with the cold starting. I got the A/F tool, made some adjustments, swapped out the plugs and life with no choke is good. Now, the second problem I have still looms. After riding a while and stopping for a 10-15 minute break, the bike will...
