Hello everyone I bought a VTX 1300r 2009 model went for a ride the other day and it just died going down the road came back and found some trash in the gas tank took the tank off the filter in the tank was bad so I put a inline filter on it and clean the carburetor and fuel tank out but it's still quits going down the road and will not start until you let it set for a little while and then it will start right up and go again for a few miles sometime longer any help would be greatly appreciated

If all your hoses (vacuum & fuel) look good on all ends, it may be the petcock diaphragm and/or the carb slide diaphragm that needs to be inspected for possible pinholes/tears. Or there may still be junk in the tank that is loose again.

Well all the vacuum lines and fuel lines look good I have put two coils on it for a new pet cock with screen and I have a mine see-through filter it all looks clean I have had the carburetor apart three times and inspected it and cleaned can't find anything but still having the same problem it will start run great but you never know when is going to act like it runs out of gas and die and will not start back until it sets for a little while then it will start right back up and run great till the next time it is driving me nuts
