Find the lowest point by the bottom radiator hose, there should be a drain port for the cooling system, or just loosen the lower radiator hose to drain the coolant out into a bucket. The thermostat should be below the housing that has the top radiator hose connected to it. Change it only when the engine is cool otherwise you will be scalded by the hot coolant.

SOURCE: how to change sparkplugs on honda shadow motorcycle

VT1100 has two spark plugs per cylinder, the sparkplug caps are snap-ons so they're fairly easy to remove. You need a spark plug socket wrench to remove and replace the spark plugs.

SOURCE: I have a 2007 Honda VTX 1300 R motorcycle, I heard

NO WAY SHOULD YOU USE SYNTHETIC OIL IN YOUR BIKE. Use 10w40 motor oil in the gear box. Don't use any synthetic oils, oil marked "EC", or oil with "special" additives. Stick with the major brands; Pennzoil, Quaker State, Mobil or Shell. If in a hot area like Texas or New Mexico go with 20w50.

This is from a Honda service manual. The bigger bikes like yours get the 10w40 or 10w50.
Can I get a “very helpful” rating on this answer? Thanks!

SOURCE: removing baffles in my1300 vtx c honda ?

it is not hard to do but it would be best to get the drag pipes. there are a host of problems to think of though. you will need to rejet the carbs to accomodate the free up in back pressure. you will need the tourque slipins for the pipes. they will fit right into the pipes where they connect at the heads. the 1300 is going to be super loud without the baffels. like getting stopped by the law loud. it would be best to get a tuned drag setup from a dealer as to get the sound you are looking for as well as keep it below jonnie laws radar.

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.
