Go ahead and run a full tank of 93 octain gas through it and when you get a chance open it up in each gear, it will clean what ever is in it out.

I have a honda vtx 1800c, It has new plugs, wires and injectors, it will idle just fine when cold, but when it warms up the idle goes down to nothing until the bike doesnt run.


Not uncommon, I cheated, I set mine to idle when warm and let it idle a little fast when cold. It warms up and then idles fine. Unless you want to spend the money on a carb rebuild which didn't work for me or spen the money on a new carb which expensive, just set the idle when hot.

I have 2004 honda vtx 1800c that won't idle when it's been sitting over night. Will idle after it's been driven for about 10 minutes. Any ideas.


i had same with my vtx 1800 i adjusted the idle , if you look to the left of engine between the pots there is a little plastic wheel on the end of a cable which goes to the throttle body, i think it is anti clockwise to increase. try this it worked ok for me however there is a cold start on these and it is operated by coolant temperature check your coolant level and top up if neccessary with the correct coolant as specified (not got info at hand)

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.

HONDA VTX 1800c 2002 no ignition afther accident


There could be a "tilt" switch on the bike. Usually they are in the speedometer. This kills the ignition to the bike should it be dropped while riding. I don't know if it can be reset. Local dealer may can help.

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.
