As my VTX 1300R from 2006 finally hit 8000 miles I checked the valves last saturday. All six valves had to much slack. So I adjusted them and did the pair mod immedaitly. As Hans &feet suggested I did not buy plates but sealed up the hoses. In another post I will explain the way I sealed them.
The next day me and the mrs. went on a 240 km drive with friends. Before the valves adjustment and the pair mod, the bike would run 17 km on one liter of fuel with me alone on it20191010_110218_1571240387151.jpg. With my wife on the back the bike went 19 km on one liter. Before the end of the ride the Harleys in the group were in need of gas while my Honda VTX had enough fuel to finish the ride without even touching the reserve.

Did you re-check the torque on the exhaust nuts after riding ~50-100 miles? What jets/slide spring did you put in when you put it back to stock exhaust and airbox?

Here's a picture of my 1800 C. I love it! I also like the brown leather because it stands out. It gives it then vintage look. On top of that if you look around there are not many motorcycles with brown seats.
