About two months ago i went for a ride and almost didn't make it home.the bike was running very rich and wouldn't idle.i went to the honda dealer and was talking toi the head mechanic.i told him that the bike was filling each cylinder with fuel when sitting not running.he said i should replace both injectors which i did.after replacing injectors and plugs the bike will run but isn't smooth at all and will actually fill the rear cylinder with gas when sitting.when running it will run but with black smoke comming from the exhaust and will not idle.

2005 Honda VTX 1300 R quits running while riding


Hi, Ozzdog and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
2. Failed alternator/generator and or voltage regulator.
3. Loose or corroded battery terminals and or cables especially the "NEGATIVE" cable, look for loose, corroded, or broken connectors inside the cable harness at "BOTH" ends.
4. Failed main circuit breaker or ignition switch, check for loose connections and continuity.
5. Failed system and or ignition relay, check for continuity.
6. Failed ignition coil, stator, magneto, ignition/electronic module.
7. Failed CKP, CPS, CMP, MAP, TPS, or BAS sensor, corroded, loose or broken wire connector pins/sockets.
8. Throttle cables and or idle speed improperly adjusted hot idle speed should be 950 RPM to 1000 RPM.
9. Faulty neutral, side stand or clutch lever safety switch.
10. Faulty or corroded kill switch.
11. Accelerator pump damaged or not working.
12. Water or dirt in the fuel system, carburetor or filter.
13. Restricted, blocked or kinked fuel line.
14. Fuel tank empty.
15. The gas cap is not venting properly or fuel tank venting system blocked, loosen gas cap and go for a test ride.
16. A failed fuel pump, pressure regulator and or fuel injectors.
17. Vacuum line from intake manifold to petcock broken, cracked, or not attached, carburetor vent line plugged.
18. Needle and seat stuck closed in the float bowl.
19. Petcock clogged or damaged.
20. Lean angle switch is faulty or needs adjustment.
21. Catastrophic engine failure, perform a compression test.

Model vtx 1800F 2005, run good arround 30 minutes on normal ridding and then loose power at 2500 rpm like if runs out of gas. The bike was out of use durring long time i bought it two weeks ago.


Sounds like you have bad gas/ a bad fuel filter. I know on the VTX1800 models the fuel filter is located just ahead of the fuel pump inside of the tank, If the bike has been sitting for awhile the gas is bad. I would make sure that you have a fresh tank of fuel in it for starters and you might need to replace the fuel filter. First try putting fresh gas in it and letting it run through the system. Let me know how this works, jeff from fixya

I left my key in the on position for a weak on my 2006 1800 vtx. My battery is dead should I buy a new battery or can I start this bike and recharge the battery I'd I ride for a few hours


Take the battery out, check your water levels. Give the battery a good deep cycle charge with a charger before you do anything else.

Yes, You could jump it and ride it for a hefty amount of time. However riding a bike with flat batteries can cause issues on the ECU if your bike model has Electronic Fuel Injection.As the EFI relies on a minimum amount of power to run the ECU(computer), at low revs some bikes are stubourn and rev irregularly to try and produce power from the alternator to compensate for the loss in power from the battery which loads down the electronics when it is flat. If you are going to go for a hefty ride to charge the battery, try to ride out on he open road somewhere and avoid high traffic areas as well as areas where you will need to start and stop frequently.

2000 vtx 1800r running rich at idle...spark plugs black with soot.


Have you changed the oil lately? If there is to much oil in the motor the bike will push oil up into the airbox and foul the air filter out. This will cause the bike to run rich. check the oil level and then drain any excess out to the proper level. You will need to clean or replace the air filter in order to make the bike run well.

Electrical ... check points. You jmight want to run some carb cleaner through it ... change the plugs. Id look at the points or what ever turns the coil on and off, real close.

No fuel to carb, I think..


Its seems the the gas is not entering the carburator.
Sometimes if theres water in the gas (since you had filled her up ) one experiences same symptons.
Best would be to clean the carburator but first check the petc o c k if it is allowing full flow of the gas to the carb.

I have a 2002 honda vtx 1800 will not idle but loads with gas


Check for a blocked airbox vent, sometime we put things under the seat that will cover the airbox inlet which will automatically make the bike run extremely rich and all that needs to be done is to remove the paper or gloves or whatever there is blocking the inlet snorkel. You may also want to check for tight intake valves too. That is classic Honda, tight valves will cause a rich mixture all the time if it is the intake valves making the problem.
Please let me know if this works, if not give me more specific data and I will better assist you.

Possibly bad gas?


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.
