Possibly bad gas?

I own a 2007 Honda VTX 1300R...The bike set for about 3 months and now when I try to ride it..it will only run on choke..if I try to take the choke off..it just dies...no matter how "warmed up" it is...does this sound like the gas went bad..if so..will draining the tank and putting new gas in fix the problem..or do I need to get the spark plugs changes too?

Sounds like you need to clean the carbs. Main jet is pluged up.

I would do both. Plugs can gas foul plus after draining I would add a fuel restorer additive, just to be sure there is no problem with the older fuel.

Recheck fuel flow wth float bowl removed allow floats to hang free. And fuel will flow out, remove float needle check for sticking in seating, remove secondary jet and clean with fine wire to remove fuel contamination,also main jet, if all else fails find a used carburettor to replace old one

VTX 1300R 07 ran out of gas and won't start, put fuel in it.


Does your bike have a petcock?

If so you have to prime the fuel bowls with gas by opening the pet **** for a minute until the fuel bowls are full of fuel THEN you set your choke if you have a manual choke THEN start the bike.

Make sure the choke is pushed ALL the way in. If you've been using it, you may have fouled the plugs.

Battery access


Battery is under the seat. There is little room for you to add a charger, as such, shy of getting such a charger recommended by your Honda shop designed for such.

It is probably better if you start your bike once each week and let it run. This will keep fresh gas in the carb and your battery charged up during these difficult months of winter.

Your bike should have 3 main wires in the rear even if they split to power 2 bulbs each.
1 for brake light
1 for night rear light
1 for ground.
Your trailer should have additionally 2 more for the turn signals.
