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 carb overhauled to fix a similar issue and that along with a plug change out got me back on the road. With the weather being less than ideal the past few months I haven't gotten it out much but will occasionally start the bike and let it run in the garage for 10 minutes or so. Yes the gas was a little old but not like a year old. The problem is that I can't get it to run without sputtering now. Even when I let it idle for 5-10 minutes and then get on the throttle it seems to rev up pretty good with no issues. But get it on the road and it starts sputtering. I have added a 1/2 can of Seafoam about a week ago and started it everyday hoping to clean the carb and get it back running good but no luck, I even added 2 gals of high octane fuel to the mix. Today I added the other 1/2 can of Seafoam and continue to run it in the garage and have even gotten it on the road to see how she runs. Well she runs like crap still. From 1st gear to 2nd and 3rd every time I give it some throttle it sputters and hesitates. I can eventually get the speed up to shift into 2nd but then the same thing. I've changed the plugs and gaped them at 0.031, as suggested on another post, but no resolution to my issue. My crankcase breather filter seems to be a little dirty, can that be the issue? Is there anything i'm missing or is it time to spend another $300 to get the carb overhauled again?
