SOURCE: 2003 honda vtx1300 back fires when cold or hot choke open or not

hello and welcome
backfiring is common associated with a lean condition. if the bike has a stock exhaust and air cleaner setup. most likely the pilot jet or main or both jets may have developed a builup. this is very very common. for this will produce the lean condition and cause popping. you may notice this more on decelleration. if slightly holding open the choke helps this a little bit. that will verify the lean condition. the carb float bowl should be removed and the jets removed and cleaned thoroughly.
if this bike does have aftermarket exhaust it is a good possibility that the jetting needs to be adjusted richer for the lean condition that the exhaust causes. thank you.

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

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.

Vtx 1300 won't start


Hi I have had the same problem with my 2007 VTX1300S, the problem was caused by the fuel tap diaphram this comes in two parts on this model the vacumn side and the actual fuel cut off side. the two sides become seperated and cut off the fuel supply. the smaller inner part should fit into the outer main part.

Bike has been standing for 18 months without the engine being spun. Bike will not start without choke. when choke is off engine stalls


You need to completely drain and refill the gas - the gas you have is stale and doesn't have enough power to run the bike.
The battery needs to be fully charged - not just jump started. It wouldn't hurt to do an oil and filter change as well as a air filter and plug change.

I start bike by using choke on cold start after 2 minutes once I push in choke engine stalls can you help?


hi nl friday,

here is a trick i learned from a friend who is a great fan of V twins.

on cold starts he usually opens the drain plug to let the carb balancer / floater set. once a few drops comes out, open the choke then start the engine. right after pushing the choke back, twist the throttle to force the jet to spray out.

hope this will work for you.

regards,

voodoo

Wont run /idle


i'd start with removing the carbs and giving them a thorough cleaning as when bikes sit for so long, the carbs begin to get gummy/varnished from the old gas.

check for blocked holes in the pilot jet & main jet and look for "hard & dried up" gas in passages. be careful of the float bowl gasket as to not tear it or you will need a replacement.
