    Honda VTX 1300 Forums
    Now that I know how to post a video - as a public service announcement - I'd like to post Gonzo1970's YouTube video for the purpose of 'comparison-setting' your idle speed to proper 900 rpm, if you don't have a tachometer. Just play the video/audio on your phone, tablet, or laptop and adjust...

  7. VTX1300 needs tune, but not sure what next

    Honda VTX 1300 Forums
    I purchased a 03 VTX1300 over the winter. It was running great, though idling a little high. I talked to a mechanic and he recommended I adjust a particular valve. I'm not sure if this is the A/F Valve or not(see below) I adjusted counter clockwise and the idle went down slightly, but it...
