Question about 2004 Honda VTX 1300
Filled gas tank and was riding home. About 10 miles into ride bike started cutting out and backfiring. when I pulled back on the throttle it would start to die. pulled over and turned bike off. It will turn over but sounds like no fuel is getting to where it needs to go. any suggestions. The bike is a 2004 VTX 1300 C with 12000 miles... this is the first problem i have ever had with this bike.. thank you for your advice.
I would check the vacuum line that opens the fuel feed valve. It's located right under the fuel shutoff valv and is fed by the #2 carburetor.

Its seems the the gas is not entering the carburator.
Sometimes if theres water in the gas (since you had filled her up ) one experiences same symptons.
Best would be to clean the carburator but first check the petc o c k if it is allowing full flow of the gas to the carb.
