Question about 2004 Honda VTX 1800
Bike runs almost ok on kickstand but as soon as i stand it up level it starts running rough with gray smoke and lots of gas fumes then baugs out untill i put it back on kickstand than it starts running almost ok. a frend said he had same problem with his kawaski and it was the coil pack. does this sound right?
Your carb idle pins/needle valves are either fouled or worn/damaged. Or floats that control your equilibrium for gas distribution throughout the carb array are not working together with valves/pins. Has this bike set a spell, at least once for too long of an interval? I'd pull the whole darn carb setup and inspect/clean, then reinstall exactly to specs. Ask for the very best teardown/rebuild cleaner for carbs at the parts store! Betcha a little elbow grease and a perfect dismantle and clean, then rebuild is all you need! Been there----Did dat!
