  1. Question 2004 VTX 1300 sputtering when I'm on the throttle

    Honda VTX 1300 Forums
    Several guys on here have been a huge help in the past when I had issues with my 2004 Honda VTX so I'm back for more help. My VTX is always hard to get warmed up, especially in the cooler weather, but lately I have been having more than the normal warming up issues. Over a year ago I had the...

    Honda VTX 1300 Forums

  6. Question A/F or Plugs or both

    Honda VTX 1300 Forums
    2008 VTX 1300 R Whether choked or not, sputters when starting up (regardless of temp), runs fine after 2-3 miles. If I stop on a ride to take a break, and fire it back up after 10-15 min, sputters and dies, then runs fine after a minute or so. I have Cobra slash cuts and a K&N filter (just...
