  1. Owners Manual Link

    VTX 1300 Riders Board
    I saw a post earlier that people were having trouble finding pdf owners manuals online. You can find a 2004 manual when you search on google. I got my 2005 manual by changing the year in the url link. For other years I would try using the same method. Good luck on finding your manuals...
  2. caught in a dust strom

    General MC Message Board
    So I was headed home and got caught in a wicked dust storm yesterday. Made it home fine and nothing seems to be wrong with the bike, but I was driving in it for a good 15 minutes, we're talking sideways wall of dust moving 30+ mph and me headed at it at 50+ mph. My question is, what damage...
  3. Age-Adjusted Maintenance Schedule? (10 years, 7k miles)

    VTX 1300 Riders Board
    I bought an '07 VTX 1300C from a coworker a couple of years ago and haven't done much in the way of maintenance or mods aside from oil/filter changes, some holes in the exhaust, and smog kit removal. I'm headed to Tail of the Dragon next week with my father-in-law to have some guy time while...
  4. Valve Noise on 2005 VTX 1300S

    VTX 1300 Riders Board
    I was wondering if other VTX owners have noticed ticking of their valves, even after adjusting. I had my valves adjusted at my local Honda dealer, but they still tick more than other bikes I've had before. Nothing ridiculous, just a little annoying. Any comments would be welcome.

  8. 600 Mile Maintenance

    VTX 1800 Tech Board
    Howdy folks! I just bought an 1800F and the dealer mentioned seeing me when I'm due for my 600 mile maintenance. It only took me a couple of weeks and I'm ready... except that a buddy of mine reminded me to check my owners manual because while the 1300 requires a maintenance the 1800 DOES NOT...
