SOURCE: removing the rear wheel of a Honda VTX 1300s

ok first you got to find the link that takes the chain apart after you do that loosen the bolts that hold the tire on if you cant do that you can use a breaker bar or put a pipe or on the end of you rachet that will give you more leverage. then sloed the tire forword so you can undo the chain and slide tire off

SOURCE: I have a 2007 Honda VTX 1300 R motorcycle, I heard

NO WAY SHOULD YOU USE SYNTHETIC OIL IN YOUR BIKE. Use 10w40 motor oil in the gear box. Don't use any synthetic oils, oil marked "EC", or oil with "special" additives. Stick with the major brands; Pennzoil, Quaker State, Mobil or Shell. If in a hot area like Texas or New Mexico go with 20w50.

This is from a Honda service manual. The bigger bikes like yours get the 10w40 or 10w50.
Can I get a “very helpful” rating on this answer? Thanks!

SOURCE: no fuel to carb, I think..

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.

You should check your shock bushings. The bolt that holds the shock in place should be in the center of the eye of the shock. If Its offset, then your bushings are worn. There is an VTX 1800 bushing that is tougher, and fits a VTX 1300 also.

Handlebar wobbles when grips are released, it does not go straight, and there's a rattle whem going through bumps, at all speeds


You probably need to add air pressure to your front tire and the steering head bearings need to be tightened.

Once or twice a week, I have problems with the starter. I push the button and hear the starter spinning but nothing else happens. Hit the button a couple of times and it catches and starts. This problem...


I seriously doubt the brand of oil you use is going to affect the starter. If you are hearing the starter spin but only get sporadic engagement, the starter's bendix may be worn and needs to be replaced. There is a VTX forum you can go to with all manner of VTX guys there to answer your questions. The url is: http://www.vtxcafe.com/forum.php
