    2007 VTX 1800F lose power when hot, Please Help! Hi, I purchased a 2007 VTX 1800F Spec 3 a month ago. It only has 4K miles. I love the bike but I have run into an issue I can not figure out: Shortly after the bike gets hot from riding, the bike lose power above 3000 RPM's on all gears. At...
  3. seems like I'm running out of gas

    New Hampshire
    I took my bike to new mechanic down here, and now I've created new problems. The other day sitting at a red light installed for the first time ever, and now tonight riding home it seems like I was running out of gas even though I filled up today. Switching the petcock didn't help but when I...
  4. 1300 R/S/T Gas Tank

    Wanted or WTB VTX Classifieds
    I need a tank. I have an '06 1300S that I am putting back on the road. The tank that it has is smashed in pretty good. I was hoping to find one that wasn't and I could have it painted. Some typical dings and chips are fine because it will be painted but the only thing I am finding out there are...
  5. No start question

    VTX 1300 Riders Board
    I just picked up my 07 vtx1300c a few weeks ago. It has 26,000 miles and I got it for a steal from a local Harley dealer. I had a concern at first after purchasing it as if I didn’t let it run for a few minutes before taking off it would bog down and die. When I let it run for a few minutes...
  6. 2006 VTX1800C random "studdering" in riding started today. Fuel delivery problem?

    VTX 1800 Tech Board
    2006 VTX1800C random "studdering" in riding started today. Fuel delivery problem? Out on a ride today and my 1800C with roughly 24,000 miles on it started to do this strange 'stutter' as if it was being starved of fuel momentarily. Best I can describe is to picture it as if someone is pinching...
  7. Jetting and Air/Fuel Mixture

    VTX 1300 Riders Board
    I just got my VTX1300C over the summer, and now that its winter, I've decided to take advantage of my time and do some work. I already did the hole-saw mod a couple weeks after I got the bike. I also just recently ordered an Arlen Ness Big Sucker air kit (because it was a heck of a deal) and it...
  8. 1300C not starting - Seems like no fuel is getting to the carb.

    VTX 1300 Riders Board
    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...
  9. 02 1800c misfire, sputter and idle probs

    VTX 1800 Tech Board
    I recently bought a 02 1800c with only 4k miles on it. The guy wasn't too bright and let it sit outside in DC since last August. I barely rode it around the block, sputtering (because of bad gas). I bought it, stopped at the first gas stationed I saw and put fresh gas in. She ran a lot better...

    General MC Message Board
    I am shipping my bike from USA to France. In the US I used 87 octane fuel, but in France the Octane starts at 95. Will the engine ping or will it run better on 95 octane? Philip
  11. Fuel Vent Tube Troubles

    VTX 1300 Riders Board
    The fuel vent tube in my tank is partially clogged up. If I have a full tank everything is good, but once I get about 60 miles on the tank and I hit above 75 it starves out. In the process of determining that it’s the vent tube in my tank I’ve replaced the fuel screen, then the fuel peacock and...
  12. Bike wont start, not sure where to look next!!??

    VTX 1800 Tech Board
    My 2002 VTX1800C has been in the garage for last 5 months. When I stored I put Stabil in the fuel so it would not go bad. Tried to start last week and old battery dead. New battery and now it only turns over and will not fire. I put new plugs and still just turns over. I took air filter off for...
  13. Fuel coming from Exhaust

    VTX 1800 Tech Board
    Hi, I have a 2003 1800C. The bike had been sitting for awhile(over a year). I pulled the bike out, put in a fresh battery, checked other fluids such as oil and coolant, put gas in the tank and turned the key and started the bike. It started relatively easy. The bike ran kinda rough for about...

    Hey all, After being a registered user for quite some time now, i finaly decided to post something! Around a month ago i got my bike on a dynojet to get a nice chart of my hp,torque and a/f ratio. The owner of that test thing (don't know how you guys call it, my englsh isn't that well) told...
  17. Question: Ethanol eating FPR diaphragm?

    VTX 1800 Tech Board
    On a trip I filled up at a BP that only had 10% ethanol additive fuels, and I thought to myself, "Self, does this stuff eat fuel injection components?" Twenty miles later I had a blown Fuel Pressure Regulator. (But it also had a previous 10K miles on it, to be fair.) Anyone out there know...
