    Honda VTX 1300 Forums
    Hey guys I'm new to the community coming out of Provo Utah and this page seems a lot more reliable/awesome than most other pages I've seen.

    *** The Shop ~ I NEED URGENT MOTORCYCLE HELP!! ***
    Ran bike out of gas and after I put gas in it, it still will not start. Put starting fluid in the breather intake and it runs until the starting fluid burns off.
