I washed my 2007 VTX 1300c dried it off and detailed it. Took it for a test drive and it ran really Doggy like and backfired on de-cell. I got on this forum for a couple hours searching for probable cause and came to the conclusion either i had water in the air filter, or had knocked off a vacuum line. I removed filer and let it dry in the sun, Still problems. the Short of it was i had knocked the small vacuum hose off the tank petcock and it had split so after getting new line and installing the bike is back running great.
Saw a earlier post about someone "stealing" because of a good deal. I picked this up for $3500. it only had 1630 miles on it and came with the seat, Pipes and jetted.

I just added a new custom turn signal setup.
I found these awesome cast iron skull bottle openers at Home Depot and then I made a mounting plate to put leds behind the eye holes.
