  1. Newby with suspension question

    VTX 1300 Riders Board
    Hello. I have a new to me 04 1300c, with 32,000 miles. Had it 3 days and put 150 miles on it. Things I notice: smooth engine, long reach for me to the stock drag bar (will remedy with Genmar risers), and a horribly rough ride.

  2. Need '03 lower fork tubes

  6. polishing the lower forks

    VTX 1300 Riders Board
    I just wanted to say thanks to the guys who offered advise on how to polish the lower forks on my 1300c. I got one finshed today and man does that baby shine!.
