Naturally the engine will go back to normal. However, there are a few other processes that some folks use to speed up the process.
Option 1-Remove the spark plugs and crank over the engine, wipe off the plugs, put the plugs back in and you should be good.

Option 2-Turn off the fuel, hold the throttle wide open and crank the engine.

Personally, I have used option 1 quite a few times. May be a bit time consuming to pull out the plugs etc, but works well. Otherwise let the bike sit and everything should be good.

2005 vtx 1300c idles but turns off when placed in gear..

There is a safety switch on the kick stand of that bike that keeps it from running while in gear. It sounds like that switch is bad and killing the bike as soon as you put it in gear.

Dear Sir I just purchased a used 2007 Honda vtx 1300C and it has a flat spot at low engine rpm through all gears. Are there any common issues with this engine ? The bike is all stock. Original pipes and...

Rich, there are no recurring issues with the vtx, but one thing i have seen a lot with the vtx's is when they sit around and especially when they are for sale and get started a lot with out being ridden the plugs get fouled easily. i would suggest you check and replace the plugs if they are carboned up and black. also you may want to get a fuel additive to help clean out the tank and carb, i like the lucas fuel conditioner myself.

My Honda VTX stalled at about 60 mph. I thought

I would run a can of Techron fuel system cleaner through it. May have sucked some debris out of the tank and into the carb (injector). Also if it has a fuel filter I think I would change it.
