This is just one of those silly questions that could have a multitude of answers. Those who have read my posts know that I am new to my VTX 1800. But since I have been making maintenance changes to him he has taken on kind of a cocky persona. He is riding way easier and seems to be way happier now that I have done the things to him to make him feel better. But this is more to do with him being cocky. Yes I have tested just how cocky and he has no problem with doing warp speed. But the one thing I am noticing now is when he goes into warm idle he lopes. The first time he did it I thought it was just a fluke and the computer was adjusting the air fuel ratio for idle. But now he does it at idle almost all the time. He is not idling slow and does not stall on take off. Of course he does have the takeoff assist when you start releasing the clutch. But I guess what I would like to know is if all 1800's do this or if this may be something the previous owner had done to him. Either way, it does sound pretty good.
