Question about 2004 Honda VTX 1300
I have a vtx 1300. it sat for 2months during winter. sputtering when give it gas. has used fuel and carberator cleaner. helped a little. but still sputtering. any suggestions
Hi,sounds like you have a blocked main jet in one of the carbs,when the fuel sits in the bowls it will evaporate and leave behind a residue that is quite difficult to remove even with a carb cleaning compound,what i do in this case is remove the carbs,remove all the jets,place all the jets in a saucer or dish and fill with petrol,leave them for a few days,this will soften the residue,then use compressed air or a crc typecan with carb cleaner and force clean them by squirting the fluid through them,do not use(as some people do) a piece of wire to clean through them,this will scratch the inside of the jet and alter the fuel flow charicteristics of the jet and render it all but useless,once you have them all absolutely spotless,reassemble and put the carbs back in,just about put money on it that your problem will dissappear,hope this helps...cheers
