  1. How much should the 8000 Mile Service cost on a VTX1800?

    Honda VTX 1800 Forums
    How much should the 8000 Mile Service cost on a VTX1800? I get the feeling the only Honda dealer in the area is ripping me off. Unfortunately, they have no competition to worry about. I can't do the work myself.
  2. Motor dies while driving. Sometimes won't start.

    *** The Shop ~ I NEED URGENT MOTORCYCLE HELP!! ***
    My 2007 VTX1300R engine has been dying intermittently at highway speed, and sometimes will not start. All electrical seems to function: the starter motor cranks without trouble but the engine does not catch. The problem happens very irregularly: about 8-10 times in 3 months. I have replaced...
  3. What should I do?

    General VTX/Motorcycle Topics
    I just bought my first bike and I'm very excited. Its a 2007 VTX1300R. The guy I bought it from was very nice. He explained that he hasn't ridden the bike since May of last year and I might want to get it serviced. My question is what should I have done? Obviously an oil change and he...

I like them quite a bit but they do have a problem: The snap rivet that secures the flap in the rear came broken off. Shortly thereafter, the snap rivet that secures one of the buckles broke off...

    Honda VTX 1800 Forums
    I just picked up an F2 last month and my dealer said to bring it back at 600 miles for it's first check up/oil change. My manual shows 4,000 for the first one. Is the dealer trying to get service $ out of me? When should I really do the first oil change (which I'll do myself) and is there a...
  6. Does Honda know about this?

    Honda VTX 1300 Forums
    Went to the dealer for 600 mile service. They blanked out the part of the service page saying "adjust valves" at 600 miles, and put it on 4000, 8000, etc. I'd like to know if I should be calling up Honda HQ in Torrance about this. I paid $289 when the valves were the only thing on the list I...

    I am a new owner of a 2007 Vtx 1300c. I am in love with the looks and the ride of the bike. I have about 1300 miles on it now. Is it neccesary to do the 600 mile service, or can I just change the oil or little stuff? The dealership wants to charge me 350$ and I haven't had it a month yet. Any...
