Question about 2006 Honda VTX 1300 S

1 Answer

Possible eclec prob

My 1300 all at once, while riding began to sputter and cut out upon acceleration, the headlight began to flicker, and the speedometer needle began jumping all about. happened at low speed and high speed acceleration. I don't want to take it to the shop if I don't need to. I am no mechanic but I can do minor things. Has anyone else had similar problems?

You are experiancing voltage issues, check the voltage at the battery with the bike running, you should be charging about 13 to 14 volts at a few 1000 rpms if not you have a issue with the chargeing system. could be the stator or regulater.

Yamaha TW 125 Sputters and hesitates when Hot

well first thing i'd check is the choke isnt sticking on. if so the bikes running rich, hence the temperature.

if its got the paddle switch on the side of the carb, make sure its not turning on once you ride it, if its a cable check its retracting fully by lubing the cable.

and also Fuel treatment e.g. redex isnt a problem fixer, it helps do what it says but it cant beat a thorough strip down.

check your carb jets are clean theres no rust etc inside the float bowl, and make sure your running the right spark plug heat range, as if its too high a range that wont help either.

'02 Yamaha XJR1300 Rattle/vibrating noise from bottom of engine

how do you adjust the headlight beam on a xjr1300 naked 2002 bike, is it as simple as undoing the 2 bracket bolts at the sides of the lights and re-setting the lights to a new level ??
currently it seems to be set for riding with a pillion passanger or heavy load at the rear as the lights are set low, no one flashes me even if i ride at night with full beam on !

thanks xjr cambs

Hard to start. when accelerating it seems very

If the engine is not spitting or sputtering, the plugs are fine. If they were fouled, the engine would not run well at all. Probably just the fuel is stale. Today's fuels don't hold up in the tank like they use to do. Once you get that fuel run out and put some fresh fuel in the bike it should run like it always did before the surgery.

Sounds like it.
Check and clean all battery connections.
Check ground at engine.
Check the main fuse to be sure it is secure.
Any trouble starting?

Hi, my '97 bird starts sputtering when I ride in wet weather, it idles with no probs but soon as I accelerate it starts to miss as if it is going to stall, nearly hit twice pulling away from lights, soon...

Check for moisture in the killer switch unit and spray some contact cleaner or penetrating oil inside the main key switch.Also it would be nice if you check the joints in your harness from the cockpit to the rear brake like.Usually the copper contacts turn into green from the moisture.Use a little bit of lithium grease before you click them back together to prevent moisture go inside again.
