  1. Bike engine keeps stalling in 1st gear, choke NOT staying in pulled position

    Honda VTX 1300 Forums
    Hey guys, So I took my '04 VTX1300 for a ride today. Started it up, gave it a couple of throttle rolls and since it's a hot summer day, I didn't think I'd need to wait for long. So I rode around the blocks for 3-4 minutes. As soon as I reached a stop sign at an intersection (in 1st gear) and...
  2. Dies when revving

    *** The Shop ~ I NEED URGENT MOTORCYCLE HELP!! ***
    Hey guys! So, I came out of work a few days ago to a shattered mirror. I thought someone bumped it as the bike was still upright when I got to it. I rode home and it was running horribly. Stuttering and stalling every stop. I had battery issues a few weeks prior, so I wondered if that was...

    Honda VTX 1800 Forums
    I've got a 2002 VTX 1800r, it sat outside for about a month with a dead battery, and it rained a little. I replaced the battery and fired it up, everything was good while on the kickstand, but as soon as I stood it up, it started to gush white smoke and fuel from the tail pipe. I assumed it...

    Honda VTX 1300 Forums
    I have a 2003 VTX 1300. Winter is finally over and got the bike out last week. Started the bike and noticed it was running rough. Choked it to warm it up and she kept dying. Finally got it to stay running with Choke on. Back fired several times but still running rough. (very loud back fire)...
  7. Stalling sucks, help.

    Honda VTX 1300 Forums
    Have a bit of a stalling problem. Seems to sometimes stall even while hot, such as at a redlight. Last week a few times on the highway it backfired upon an aggressive twist on the throttle. I have removed the pair last year and this is the first backfire since. 1300 c with cobra speedsters...
  8. fuel injection light keeps coming on.

    *** The Shop ~ I NEED URGENT MOTORCYCLE HELP!! ***
    I have a 06 1800C. The past few days the fuel injection light has been coming on and the bike starts to die out. Yesterday the bike almost threw me off the back when it started bucking on the highway like it was not getting fuel or something. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Moose
