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.

2005 honda vtx 1300r car start but not go

if you are able to select gears without the motor stalling I doubt that your clutch is burned I would suspect that you may have sheared the output shaft in the gearbox this is a major job & without the correct tools & knowledge should be entrusted to a qualified technician

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.

In neutral at idel, give it gas and the engine dies/stalls

Did you turn the chock off? I know that sound like a dumb question but it would flood the engine if you didn't. If you have turned it off after it is warm and this happens then your carbs need cleaning cause of some foreign mater has gotten into them. Remove the air cleaner and hoses that are attached to the back of it. Then the fuel line and the cables. There is a clamp that holds it in the intake boot just loosen it and remove the carb or carbs. The carbs are a touchy thing to clean and it will take a few hours to to this if you haven't done this before. Also get a Service repair Manuel and it would help you out doing this and in the future.

After riding ten minutes, the bike stalls on street or highway

I think there will be some dust or something else which stops the smooth flowing of Petrol from Fuel tank to engine.
Since its not completly blocked, its running for few kms and turning off.
This is not a strange problem.

My Honda VTX stalled at about 60 mph. I thought

I would run a can of Techron fuel system cleaner through it. May have sucked some debris out of the tank and into the carb (injector). Also if it has a fuel filter I think I would change it.
