Take it back to the shop, if it needs this doing yet it was not set up correctly when it was manufactured. If this is required it would be part of the first service, if you do it and something goes wrong you will invalidate your warranty. Be very careful of Honda UK, and anything that could invalidate you warranty. (Note Portsmouth Honda).

SOURCE: ENGINE NOISE

It could be the 'cam chain' but you will be getting into a major overhaul to replace the cam chain so if you are familiar with the teardown of the motor go ahead and do it otherwise take it to a repair shop.

SOURCE: 2004 honda shadow 600 VLX leaking fork seal bike

The seal under the dirt seal on the fork was leaking when I picked the bike up from the owner. left the fork oil under the dirt seal kept bouncing the forks up and down for 4 days the seal got soft from the fork oil so I pulled the dirt seal up then cleaned the fork oil under it with a rag then checked it for leaks then pushed dirt seal back down in the groove and its not leaking now 200 miles and still dry.

SOURCE: magna engine surges

The carbs may need to be cleaned. Try running seafoam in the tank first and see if that clears some of it up. The slow jets may be plugged up inside the carbs. If the snorkel had been removed from the airbox, it could cause siminlar problems as well. have you changed the spark plugs yet? be sure to check out the Honda Magna forums for more info:

SOURCE: I have a 2007 Honda VTX 1300 R motorcycle, I heard

Yeah that first solution was way off. You can tell that guy reads too much into the books. The mototech guy is right. Never use car based oils in your bike. That's why you have two plugs to drain the oil. One is for the engine oil the other is for the gearbox and wet clutch. There is no dextron etc. "transmission fluid" for bikes it's run off the same motor oil, and YES! any mechanic will tell you that synthetics like AMSOIL are better for your bike than a regular non-synthetic that breaks down a lot easier in heat. Which brings me to my next point I live in Florida where it gets pretty hot and i use AMSOIL synthetic 22W-50 in my Honda VTX.

2008 Honda VTX 1800 F idle adjustment


Hi, Anonymous idle adjustment on fuel injected engines can range from simple to complex depending on the year-make-model of the motorcycle. Before any adjustment can be made, all intake leaks must be corrected and all intake sensors TPS-IAC-MAP-CTS etc. should be checked for integrity. Some models will have an adjusting screw at the throttle stop, others need to be connected to a Scanalizer to be adjusted which is usually performed at the Dealership.

Try adjusting the steering neck bearings. They should have been tightened at the 600 mile check up, but most mechanics short cut and skip the adjustment. Take off the handle bars and the upper triple clamp and tighten the "steering stem nut"/"neck bearings" almost to binding, then back it off a tiny bit. You may want to run your tire pressure around 34-34 PSI to help get more even tire wear.
