    Performance Upgrades/Mods
    Anyone running a cobra 2000? I have a 1800 (2003) just added the 2000. I have not seen much of a mileage increase or much power increase. A note though, I have not ridden it many miles since the addition. Any feed back would be great!
  2. Air/Fuel Mix

    Honda VTX 1300 Forums
    Since my last post, I have my bike back on the road (without a full rebuild, thank gawd), but I have ZERO power. Fires right up, but HAS to be choked. Idles okay for a while, but eventually lobs itself to sleep. If you EASE into the throttle it reacts fine, until about 1/3-1/2 throttle, then...

    Honda VTX 1300 Forums

    The other day I turned the key and hit the starter and the bike started to turn BUT, the bike suddenly died. Now, nothing no lights, odometer, nothing.
