    So I just purchased a used sissy bar. I've determined it's a Cobra Short for the VTX 1300C. Question is how do I mount this to the bike with the Honda leather saddle bags? I know it mounts to the two back bolts but can anyone help me out with what size bolts. The saddle bags have a spacer to...

    So my bike used to start without any issue like it should and here recently for the past several months it’ll either start and idle very low and then die and not start again, or it’ll crank but won’t turn over. Sometimes it starts just fine without trouble. I’ve changed the fuel filter, cleaned...

    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...

    Has anyone tried to convert the VTX1300 speedometer to the digital that is on the VTX1800F? I am wanting a digital speedometer and I can't find a direct replacement to go with the original speedo cover. Any suggestions is appreciated.

    Hi All, In the process of picking up a 2006 VTX 1300 R6 with about 7k miles. Bike has a problem and not sure what could it be. Due to non-use and ethanol fuel, had problem starting it. Finally on the third start, noticed blue smoke and oil splatters came out of the exhaust pipes. Just shut it...

    Ok guys I took the tail fender off to change my turn signals to LEDs, the only thing I did to the brake light was unplugged the three wires. After I got everything back together the brake light comes on but doesn't get any brighter when I press the hand brake nor the foot brake. I've changed the...

    I just bought an 05 vtx 1300. Had 3400 miles when i bought it. Whoever owned it before me had put cobra exhaust pipes on it and a kuryakyn supercharger air cleaner kit. It appears to have been jetted already also. For some reason though the rear exhaust is getting way hotter than normal and has...

    Hello All, I own a 2006 VTX 1300C and recently decided to pull her out as the weather is finally warming up in southern Indiana. Upon starting, the bike kept wanting to die, so I made the "mistake" of pulling the choke out to keep it running. After letting it idle for a bit, I decided to put...

    I'm new to this forum, considering a 2009 VTX 1300T. I sold my HD Dyna. But I'm concerned that the VTX has carborators instead of fuel injectors. Are the carbs troublesome? Unreliable? Difficult with cold weather starts? Is there an upgrade from these 9 year old carbs? Is an upgrade even...

    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...

    I was considering doing a Clayton Mod to my 2007 VTX 1300 with 18,000 miles and a friend of mine that works on Harleys and Metrics said that it could cause problems in the Top End of Motor. Can the Clayton Mod cause this problem? Or has anyone had any issues when modifying the stack exhaust?
