Question about 2003 Honda VTX 1300 Retro
I try to restart every two to three minutes, so battery doesn't die. bike will finally start after 5 or more attempts. bike stalled last year several times. dealer couldn't re-create stalling problem in shop and couldn't figure out problem. tried using premium gasoline this year after getting bike out of storage and thought that solved the problem, but then took it to dealer for 36,000 mile maintenance, and problem returned. it is stalling each time i take the bike out for a ride, usually on the expressway. any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks.
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.

This is exactly what my 1300 did, for TWO years. I thought I narrowed it down to the fuel cut-off relay, or fuel pump. I replaced the relay, but the new one did not help. The other thing I suspected was the fuel pump. So I just pulled out the fuel pump, and have been trouble free for over five years now. P.S.: This was after two Honda dealerships failed to find the problem.

More than likely it is the fuel filter. It is located directly under your driver's seat in front of the battery compartment. When doing this maintenance it wouldn't hurt to change or clean the air filter and check your spark plugs as well. After all, it takes air, spark, and fuel to run for an engine to run well. Good Luck!
