SOURCE: removing baffles in my1300 vtx c honda ?

it is not hard to do but it would be best to get the drag pipes. there are a host of problems to think of though. you will need to rejet the carbs to accomodate the free up in back pressure. you will need the tourque slipins for the pipes. they will fit right into the pipes where they connect at the heads. the 1300 is going to be super loud without the baffels. like getting stopped by the law loud. it would be best to get a tuned drag setup from a dealer as to get the sound you are looking for as well as keep it below jonnie laws radar.

SOURCE: gas is dripping from the petcock fuel valve( cover

Your bike has a vacuum operated petcock. The vacuum diaphram inside the cover set has cracked and is allowing fuel to leak from the vent hole. Unfortunately, you cannot buy just the diaphram, you've got to buy the cover set (#5 in the picture below), P/N 16953-KEA-023, or replace the whole petcock assembly (item #2), P/N 16950-MEM-674.278cd21.jpg

SOURCE: I have a 2007 Honda VTX 1300 R motorcycle, I heard

Yeah that first solution was way off. You can tell that guy reads too much into the books. The mototech guy is right. Never use car based oils in your bike. That's why you have two plugs to drain the oil. One is for the engine oil the other is for the gearbox and wet clutch. There is no dextron etc. "transmission fluid" for bikes it's run off the same motor oil, and YES! any mechanic will tell you that synthetics like AMSOIL are better for your bike than a regular non-synthetic that breaks down a lot easier in heat. Which brings me to my next point I live in Florida where it gets pretty hot and i use AMSOIL synthetic 22W-50 in my Honda VTX.

My Honda VTX stalled at about 60 mph. I thought

I would run a can of Techron fuel system cleaner through it. May have sucked some debris out of the tank and into the carb (injector). Also if it has a fuel filter I think I would change it.
