How to Adjust the Idle on a Honda ATV


The idle adjustment on your Honda ATV controls how much fuel and air get to the engine when the throttle is closed. This allows the engine to stay alive while you are stopped or while coasting with the clutch pulled in. If the idle is not adjusted properly, the engine may rev too high when stopped, or it may die, requiring you to restart the engine whenever you come to a stop. By learning to adjust the idle on your Honda ATV, you won’t need to deal with these problems.

Step 1

Take the ATV for a 10-minute stop-and-go ride to warm up the engine. The engine needs to be at normal riding temperature to adjust the idle properly.
