    Hello All, I currently own a 2006 VTX 1300 As warm weather starts to fall upon southern Indiana, it's time to get the VTX out. Upon trying to start I decided to pull the choke out to start. It ran fine until I decided to take off down the road. Gas began to pour out of the air filter and the...

    Hello everyone! I have a 2005 VTX 1300C. On cooler mornings around 50 degrees F, my bike has had trouble starting up. I got the bike to start up with some starting fluid and patience.

    To start I have a VTX 1300c with Bub pipes(no baffles) and a Kuryakyn hypercharger. I purchased the bike about 2 years ago and I do not currently know the numbers on the mainjet or pilot. The bike had all these things on it when I bought it. The bike has always felt "sluggish" on take off and...

    Hey folks, Last night I swapped out the pilot jet since it was running rich. I had a #60 in there and I think I really should be running a #58. I couldn't kill the engine by turning the A/F screw all the way in. It would keep running which is indicative to me that the pilot jet might be a...

    So recently I posted about getting an oily, fuel smelling residue all over my carb and on my fins in between the jugs. Today I had a few things off of the bike mocking up a Harley horn for it and found the source of the leak. It is coming from the vent hose on top of the carb that runs down...

    Does anyone know how to clean out carbs/pipes? My VTX 1300 has a lot of gunk built up in them. I took it to the local dealership a couple months ago and they charged about $130 to "fix" it and now it is worse than ever. I've tried gas treatment and while that did blow out some of the deposits...
