I have 1981 cx500 i recently had a problem with a broken air mixture needle! I solved this problem but now i need help! I replaced the airbox with pod filters! If I was going to adjust the air mix so i could get some ride time in before rejetting what would be my best bet? Maybe 3.5-4 turns out??? Any advice appreciated! Thanks in advance

The idle adjusters are fuel meters. If he removes the screws, he'll have gas dripping out, and probably a leaner mixture from air being sucked in.

I don't recall reading "idle adjusters" until your post,Randall.
