My CTX has just started to idle around 2k. Initial start-up is at normal rpm, but after running the bike a bit, it remains at 2k.
Today, I removed the cowlings and the air filter to install a new one. The new filter arrives tomorrow, and I hope the new clean filter will solve my high idle issue because my filter is dirty with 21,600 on the odometer.
Additionally, my bike has the original OEM battery, a new OEM grade battery will be installed, because I have noticed a weak start, which is causing me to wonder if the battery is going bad causing the bike to idle higher to charge the battery.
Lastly, with everything off, I changed all the coolant.
I took my time to remove all the paneling, and it took me a quick 4 hours to carefully remove everything without any damage. No, the bike is not reassembled yet! Though, thus labor is saving me $550 at my local Honda shop!
