Hello Earl, welcome to the VTXOA!
2003 1300 was the only year with an electric fuel pump.
If you have fuel issues convert to gravity flow. 04 and later are gravity flow.

Clean and lube: shifter pedal, starter switch(info in Step by Step board), turn signal switch will need same thing.

Enjoy your ride!

2005 1300c Red, Mustang seat, HK 2.5 straights. Leds for safety-front & back. 192,635 VTX miles

Thanks, but I have done all of the above, I also cleaned the turn signal switch, it was a little sticky the 1st week of ownership. It really runs great now. Bub's exhaust sound awesome to my old ears.
