Question about 2006 Honda VTX 1300 S

1 Answer

I recently bought a 2006 Honda VTX 1300. I need to take it in for 8,000 mi service but will not be able to for several weeks. I checked oil level and it is good but i noticed on the bottom of the bike there is a clear plastic oil reserve that has line for lower and upper. What is this fluid for or is it just overflow tank. Is it transmission oil? The fluid is well below the lower line so im worried that something is low on oil. Please let me know if i need to add oil and what kind and where. Im suppose to go a a 300 mile cruise tomorrow and dont want to ruin my bike. Thanks

The tank is an overflow tank for your radiator. You should use a 50/50 mixture of anti freeze and distilled water. The anti freeze should be a non-silica brand like GM Dexcool, Honda, etc. You do not want anti freeze with rust scrubbing particals because the particles will cause premature wear on the water pump seal.

Checking oil level


Remove dipstick from left side of bike and wipe it clean. Sit on bike and stand it straight up. Insert dipstick and do NOT screw it in. Remove dipstick and see where your oil level is. If you check it on the side stand, you will read way over full. Should take just under 4 quarts. If you did your own oil change, did you remember the two drain plugs?
