  1. A Question About Brake Noise

    VTX 1300 Riders Board
    Just became the owner of a 2005 VTX1300 about a month ago. When I apply the brakes, (especially when it's really hot outside) I hear what reminds me of the sound those cicadas make. It's more noticeable from the rear brake but the front one makes a similar sound too. I never noticed it the first...

  3. New brakes sound like a roulette wheel. Driving me crazy!

    VTX 1300 Riders Board
    I just installed a brand new set of brakes (front and rear). The front brakes have a very low ticking sound to them - like a roulette wheel.

  6. My Undertaker brake light idea

    VTX 1300 Riders Board
    So I finally found something that I really like the looks of for my new undertaker fender. Only thing is, I have no idea how to do it nor do I have the tools to do it. Has anybody done this before? I'm not sure how these were done (below), it appears they are perfectly flush and clear coated...

    VTX 1300 Riders Board
    I was alerted by a passing motorist (thank heaven for biker friendly chicks:twisted:) that my taillight/brake light was out. I made my way to the local parts house and after considerable work was able (with the loan of a de-locking spray and opening a screwdriver set to lend me a smaller...
