Question about 2005 Honda VTX 1300 S
The front cylinder doesn't seems to be firing all the time. I removed a plug and it was firing. If I am going 55 and grab some throttle it takes forever to reach 60. Last year it responded like right now.
There are a lot things tht may cause backfiring.
It could be due to the timing being incorrect.
It can also be due to the gas having water in it.
When did you start facing this problem?,suddenly, or after some reapirs or was the bike stored for a longtime ?

great news you can only win with this. i bet if you pull a spark plug and look at it, it will be white or close to it. if so your motor is lean, it's not get the right amount of gas. when you put pipes on a bike it lets more air flow and you need to jet your carb. you local bike shop can help you get a jet kit and handle the install if needed. when done right you get more performance out of it. while you are look into jets get a high flow air filter or look into a hyper charger they come a jet kit, k&n air filter and the air scoop price isn't bad rsports.com/wps/Honda_OEM/HondaMC.asp?Type=13&A=474&B=25

You may have an air leak (extra air getting in) between the carbs & the engine. Inlet manifold rubbers do crack on Hondas but Yamahas are the worst.
Check for cracks, check the o rings (each end of inlet manifold) & check for leaks from air-box to carbs
Carbs need to be balanced (synchronised) to let the engine run smoothly but will not produce those symptoms if left unbalanced.
You should also check the HT leads & spark plug caps for shorting, run the bike in the dark & look for sparks going to earth (sometimes you can only hear a ticking as the spark jumps across). Make sure the leads are not touching anything during this procedure
Please mark this as very helpful (if it has been!!)
