Hello everyone!

So I bought a beautiful VTX 1300C 2006 with 5K on it six months ago for too low and I have been loving it. The rider bought it for his wife, rechromed it, custom painted it (he's a body shop guy,) and it was a bad choice for her first bike, (new rider, 5'0" 100lbs, literally no riding experience).

Anyway, it came with a Kuryakyn "Hyper R" charger on it. At first, I accepted this piece of voodoo engineering since all of my cruiser friends love how it looks and the bike as a whole was a great buy. After learning more and more about these things, and looking at air flow charts, I really don't want anything with a butterfly valves in passive air flow systems.

I have a question - if I want to just revert back to stock - what do I get from this chart? - http://www.bikebandit.com/oem-parts/2006-honda-vtx1300-vtx1300c-air-cleaner/o/m2925sch411716

Also, if anyone wants to recommend another aftermarket kit, be my guest! Just tell me the best thing for a simple air cleaner and I'll buy it.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Rochelle, welcome to the Café! To go back to stock, you'll need everything but the crankcase breather hose, presuming it's still there (I have no experience with a Kury hyper-charger and where the CBH is terminated). But, presuming it's been re-jetted accordingly, you'd have to re-jet for the stock airflow. Many recommend the Factory Pro Stage 3 jet kit and I found it easy to tune with. You could do a Scoops mod, and then you could (step-wise) tune the airflow to meet the fuel delivery of the jets and needle that you currently have, or still get a FP3 jet kit to make things easy. If you really want to go stock, then you would need a 200 or 210 FP main (195 was OEM stock on my '07 R) and run a K&N air filter (HA-1330). As I think was stated earlier, which pipes and related back-pressure you have do matter somewhat to how you tune the carb...
