I agree Boots. Castle (dipsticks) have tendency to review high. I have noticed inaccurate dipsticks on Shadows, Xes and also Wings. As a an outcome I have actually started putting in what the shop hands-on says and also ignoring the dipstick.To think, all of the high tech stuff honda builds and they have worries with something for this reason simple.

Interesting thread... So, it isn"t simply me! :lol: The first few times I uncovered the VTX overfilled I assumed I must have actually screwed increase somehow. The last time i made certain it was totally drained and also I put in exactly 3.9 quarts; again, (after to run for a quick time to to fill the filter) I discovered it was over filled! :shrug:I examine the oil level myself by sit on the bike and also balancing the while getting to down to examine the level... Dipstick simply touching and not screwed in.Judging through my experience I believe the hands-on is not correct (p.186 because that "06). I don"t recognize yet precisely what it have to be, however 3.2 qts. Should be a great starting suggest next oil change.

I assumption: v I"m much more concerned around over-filling it, so i opt to keep the level in ~ the full mark top top the dipstick.But, you"re right, us shouldn"t be having issues with this.My VT1100C requirements 3.3 qts and also that appears to agree with the dipstick, yet the VTX is the one through issues.

Dipstick just touching and not screwed in.Judging through my experience I think the hands-on is dorn (p.186 for "06). I don"t recognize yet specifically what it need to be, but 3.2 qts. Have to be a good starting point next oil change.
When check the oil, "by sit on the bike and also balancing that while getting to down to check the level... Dipstick just touching and not screwed in", where need to it review on the stick ? when I assisted my friend adjust the oil, it come up just above the middle marker... Had xxx"s below and xxx"s over the center marker ~ above the stick.

I don"t recognize anything about xxx"s or "middle" mite on VTX dipsticks. Web page 85 the the "06 hand-operated shows the "upper level mark" and also the "lower level mark" top top the dipstick. Over there is no "middle mark".The Wing and my VT100C dipsticks are made the exact same way.
Boots - I"ll check that dipstick again, and also use the inspect points you described from the owners manual. Thanks.You all have been a an excellent help. I would have actually never guessed the VTX 1300 has actually 2 oil drainpipe plugs. Maybe 1 is optional to sell a different access point ?Thanks again for your help.Dave

I aided a friend readjust oil & filter on his Honda VTX 1300. He doesn"t have an owner manual. We changed and put around 3.4 qts in and a brand-new filter (filter is same size as Goldwing 1800). I didn"t have a like washer in the size he needed, so us reused his old one.My inquiries for those the you acquainted with the VTX 1300:What is the oil capacity ?What dimension is the crush washer ?Are there 2 oil drainpipe plugs or 1 like most bikes (he claimed he believed there were 2)?If anyone can aid with this info it would be appreciated. Thanks in advance,Dave
If it"s choose the VTX 1800, it has two drains and also takes 4 qts. 3.9 however 4 doesn"t hurt. I have been useing the same crush washer for over 50K and also have no leaks. :shrug:
... Web page 85 the the "06 hands-on shows the "upper level mark" and also the "lower level mark" top top the dipstick. There is no "middle mark".
Oops! I had actually forgotten you stated he had no manual. On the planarization area the the dipstick ("06) there are two raised ribs that suggest the upper and lower level marks. Dipsticks on other years or models may be slightly different.
I don"t know about that, yet there are quite a couple of differences in between those 2 engines as well as size. I perform wish the VTX1300 had actually fuel injection like the VTX1800, though.

Had xxx"s below and xxx"s over the middle marker on the stick.

I recently operated on a bicycle that had the XXXXs. They fill up the entire room between the "Low" and "High" marks on the plastic
dipstick. I just went out and also physically checked 2 1100 Shadows and also neither of the 2 metal dipsticks had actually the XXXXs.
