Broken Idle Adjustment Knob/Manual Idle
First post here. First off, I have a 2003 vn750 with 23k miles that I bought a week ago. The bike runs pretty good albeit it's got some old bike problems that I'll address one at a time through this quarantine.
This post is in regards to idle adjustment. Once the bike warms up, it'll idle anywhere between 1500 and 2000. It doesn't float between the two, it'll either be at 2000 which it seems to prefer, or drop down to 1500 at some point (seems temperature dependent?). Anyways, it seems to prefer to idle right around 2000, which is much greater than the 1100 recommended in the manual. Unfortunately, my idle adjustment knob is broken and I've heard that replacing it is both expensive and a PITA. Given that it's something you don't do too often, is there a way for me to manually adjust the idle without having to replace the cable and/or take the carbs off?
