throttle

  1. Help needed ! Which Kurakyn grip to get (dual throttle or electronic throttle) ?

    Honda VTX 1300 Forums
    Hey! After my Ninja 650 was stolen 3 months ago, I've felt down for some time. Tough, I finally decided to quit weeping and try something new. Did some research and got me a 2004 VTX 1300. Never had a carburated bike before so I had some fun reading up about it and played around with the choke...
  2. Question Bought a bike that sat for years, dies on slow throttle roll on

    Honda VTX 1300 Forums
    Hello All, I recently purchased a 2006 VTX1300. It has sat for years and didn't run at all when I first got it. I have cleaned out the bottom of the carb (the various jets and the float bowl etc.) and I have now gotten it to turn over and idle as long as the choke is pulled out. At full choke...

    Honda VTX 1300 Forums
    Hi, Recently on my 1300 I replaced the air filter with a K&N, Switched the pipes with V&H Big Shots, i also re-jetted the bike with recommended kit. The bike seems to run fine except when in gear and going above 1/2 throttle. it still has momentum, not acceleration and really boggy. In the...
  4. Question Throttle Body Sync Question

    Honda VTX 1800 Forums
    I recently used a CarbMate to sync my throttle body because the idle speed would vary about 80-100rpms, but often up to 140rpms. I managed to get that down to 20-40 on average with the occasional 50rpm jump when reading from my laptop connected to the PCIII. The bike is an 02 1800R with 34k...

    *** The Shop ~ I NEED URGENT MOTORCYCLE HELP!! ***
    Hello everyone, I am not sure if this is even an issue. My ignorance may shine through on this one. In the last couple of days, I made two changes to my bike. The first change was that I put some Thunder Monster baffles in my Cobra Long Shots. The second change was that I swapped out my...

  8. Carb damage? Won't take quick throttle

    *** The Shop ~ I NEED URGENT MOTORCYCLE HELP!! ***
    Being the genius auto mechanic that I am I tried something very common place on a automobile carburetor when there are running issues. I thought I may have a jet blockage so I tried to choke the carb at wide open throttle. Now the bike won't take anything but a very slow roll on the throttle. If...

    Necessity is the mother of induction and I am honored to be inducted into the VTX Cafe. It all started with an ISO Grip, an over zealous neighbor and a throttle sleeve that obviously was not idiot proof. Thought I'd try and find a plain,old replacement sleeve so I visited the cafe. No luck with...
