I haven't done any mods to the bike,it ran fine until last summer.whenever I have been on the highway for 10 or 15 minutes when I exit the bike wants to die,if I hit the throttle it bogs out and wants to die.any ideas on what I can do to remedy this?...........sometimes it will run for an hour without issues and sometimes I can run to the store and it starts acting up.I haven't heard the fan come on in awhile.

air filter
intake clamps
intake ports ( rubber ) for small cracks
intake vacuum hoses for cracks or breaks.
carburetor .. dirt in little filter at carb input.
float going bad
carburetor diaphragm is dry rotting.. very small cracks.
a thin rubber part.. living in a less then Ideal conditions
you do not provide bike YEAR... 2003 to 2009.

2003 has a fuel pump.. and has it many issues.. reason Honda stopped using it in 2004.

Is there that big of a difference between the two models?

Fuel injection not carburetor and probably a few other tweaks to go with it.

Didn't the VTX 1300s have fuel injection too? 2006 or 2007?

1800 has FI. 1300 does not. Remember 1300 is the "cheap" bike. Honda wanted to sell the 1800 so it has the better parts.

Hmmm I thought the 1300s used fuel injection at some point. Ok, interesting then. I can't imagine riding an 1800 after having this 1300 now for a while. But I bet it would be fun!

No VTX1300 has fuel injection. The next generation of Honda bikes are called the "VT" series and they are 1300 cc and are fuel injected.
