SOURCE: i have a 2002 honda vtx 1800 will not idle but loads with gas

Check for a blocked airbox vent, sometime we put things under the seat that will cover the airbox inlet which will automatically make the bike run extremely rich and all that needs to be done is to remove the paper or gloves or whatever there is blocking the inlet snorkel. You may also want to check for tight intake valves too. That is classic Honda, tight valves will cause a rich mixture all the time if it is the intake valves making the problem.
Please let me know if this works, if not give me more specific data and I will better assist you.

Your carb idle pins/needle valves are either fouled or worn/damaged. Or floats that control your equilibrium for gas distribution throughout the carb array are not working together with valves/pins. Has this bike set a spell, at least once for too long of an interval? I'd pull the whole darn carb setup and inspect/clean, then reinstall exactly to specs. Ask for the very best teardown/rebuild cleaner for carbs at the parts store! Betcha a little elbow grease and a perfect dismantle and clean, then rebuild is all you need! Been there----Did dat!

Just started. Bike runs fine until I shift into 1st, then it shuts off (Clutch is pulled in of course). Is ther a clutch switch that causes this?


You didn't say WHICH VTX 1800 you had (there's about 10), C, N1, N2, N3, R1, R2, R3, S1, S2, or S3, or I'm going with the C.

This year/model DOES have a clutch switch that the clutch lever operates off of.

It also has a side stand switch.

The problem could be this, also.

How do I check the fuel filter on a 2006 honda vtx 1800


  1. Engine
    • The Honda VTX 1800 cruiser boasts a monstrous 1,795cc liquid-cooled V-twin engine, with three valves per cylinder and a nine-to-one compression ratio. It has a bore and stroke of 101 by 112 mm, making it an undersquare, or long-stroke motor, meaning it's tuned for low-end torque. With a curb weight of 800 pounds, you'll need all that low-RPM power to get off the line. The bike does not have a tachometer, so you'll have to shift the five-speed transmission by feel.
    Fuel System
    • The bike is fuel injected, with an automatic choke. Fuel injection helps the VTX 1800 ride more smoothly than carbureted V-twins. The tank carries 5.3 gallons of fuel. In reviews, the bike had an average range of 194 miles on a tank of gas.

    Performance and Handling
    • This is a massive and massively powerful motorcycle. It corners wide, and is really meant for highway cruises rather than city riding. The bike gets a remarkable 100 foot-pounds of torque at 3,000 RPM. The suspension is rough, and you will certainly feel bumps in the road. Honda, however, has put a lot of effort into minimizing engine vibration, so the gigantic V-twin won't rattle your bones the way you expect it to. The engine makes a solid, satisfying thump without chattering your teeth.

Enging running rough changed sprk plugs still running rough


You may have a bad spark plug wire or a faulty ignition coil. Use an oli car spark plug wire to run a test case to see if this resolves the problem. If only on one cylinder, trace the wire back to the coil and have it tested or replaced. Good luck

2002 VTX 1800 backfires recelerating


If the bike is fuel injected, the module should fix it. If the bike is carbureted, you don't need the module but you will need to re-jet the carb to enrich the mix.
