If your bike will only run with the choke half way out it's starving for feul. You have a clogged jet. By choking the bike you cut off the air and allow more feul to run through the carb.

When I start my VTX 1300 first thing in the am...I use a full choke 10-30 seconds then go to half to warm up but if it stalls ....I can't get it to restart ...nothing....nada....I drive my car to work....

what is the temp in the morning. it sounds to me that you need to clean or rebiuld the carbs. my advice is for you to rebuild and also put in a jet kit. this is going to give you a lot better control of your engine and also fix the mixture on your bike. it will also let you install aftermarket pipes. just cleaning and rebuilding will fix the problem though. dont forget to replace the fuel filter and air filter as well.

My 2006 Honda VTX1300 starts fine with the choke lever pulled out part or all of the way, but after engine is plenty warmed up, if the choke lever is pushed back in, the bike immediately dies.

your carbs not getting enough fuel check the bowl and jets. I run a pice of wire down the jets even if they look open just to be sure. Speaker wire strands work well for the tiny holes

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.

Looking for tips/steps to de-winterize my Honda VTX 1300C motorcycle. Thanks.

I hope you had your bike stored in a well heated garage.if not then the damp has got into all the important parts .if it starts & runs well then there is just general work to be done ,New plugs and an air filter may be needed ,a good check of the brakes and fresh fuel will help .and plenty of W / D 40 on parts like levers and cables .choke lever and linkage.Air in tyres and a battery check .

My 2005 Honda VTX 1300R has new battery, starts fine,accel good but idles rough sometimes to the point of stalling

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