Hello. I am Doug Richards.
I just bought a 2007 VTX 1300s with 9000 miles on it.
Had it for 1 week.
I am just getting used to the bike now and trying to learn all about it.
Any suggestions would be helpful.
Thanks.

Welcome from central New Mexico. Enjoy and ride safe. I used to own a 2007 1300C. Loved it.

Welcome from Arkansas. I also have a 2007 1300S. Mine is black and was in perfect condition until some a hole cut me off last month. But the vtx is tough.

Hello Doug, welcome to the VTXOA! Most of the VTX riders put 38 - 40 PSI in the tires. Better handling and tire mileage.

I use the "ckoke" aka Starter Enrichment valve all the time at cold start. When it is running I bump doen a bit, then ride. At the 3rd or 4th gear I close close. Owner's manual has info. Choke does not provide a high idle when cold and closed.


Your location made me remember the river road in Louisiana. Enjoy your ride!
