    I am new to the VTX and the forum. I have a 2004 1300 C with around 6600 miles (purchased in May with 4881 miles). It was stock when I purchased it and I did a couple of modifications I found here. I have limited knowledge of motorcycles, so this is a learning experience. I have a couple of...

  7. HELP! Sputtering, misfiring, A/F issue & plugs

    VTX 1300 Riders Board
    I have a 2008 VTX 1300 R Whether choked or not, it sputters when starting up (regardless of temp), runs fine after 2-3 miles. If I stop on a ride to take a break, and fire it back up after a 10-15 min break, it sputters and dies, then runs fine after a minute or so. I have Cobra Classic slash...
