After changing the filter and testing the IACV and 3 other sensors, and hoses, I am at a loss as how to resolve my 2,000rom idle.
I also adjusted the throttle system per the manual, and fuel system inspection and secondary air as all part of the troubleshooting per the manual.
I took the Red Enchantress by my local bike shop (not a Honda dealership), and we discussed what I had done. The fellow said that it sounded like I had done more than what was needed to resolve the problem. The owner admitted that he would be willing to work on the bike, but admitted that he likely would not succeed or easily being unfamiliar with it. That said, he recommended that invite the bullet and take my bike to the more expensive dealer (hour rate) to save money. 🤦‍♂️
Even this time of year, they are three weeks out, so I have an appointment to take her and drop her off. In the meantime, I will tolerate the idle and continue to ride.
