Hello, my 2004 Honda VTX 1800 after heats up on low speed the engine shuts down. What it could be?


Hi, Martynas and the usual suspects are:
1. Engine oil level and SAE weight are too low or not circulating.
2. Insufficient or blocked air flow over the engine.
3. Heavy combustion chamber carbon deposits.
4. Ignition timing retarded due to faulty MAP, CKP, or CMP sensor.
5. Carburetor jetted too lean.
6. Leaking intake or exhaust valve.
7. Water coolant old or low change every two years.
8. Water pump failure.
9. Radiator clogged, cap loose or malfunctioning.
10. Radiator fans not coming on.
11. Clutch slipping, brakes dragging, heavy load, towing a trailer etc.
12. Idling too long without moving.
13. For constant hot weather temperatures, mountain, or desert riding conditions consider adding an oil cooler and or cylinder head cooler.

2002 honda 1800c vtx, stalling going down a hill with gallon or less gas


Your fuel petcock is in the rear of the tank. At steep downhill angles all the fuel flows to the front of the tank and not in the petcock. Meaning at steep downhill angles with low fuel level . . .your bike doesn't get any fuel.
