Glens Garage A/F Adjuster

Hey Guys,

I'm thinking about ordering the A/F adjuster from Glens Garage and wanted to know, 1) Feedback on the product 2) Don't remember if I have the stock A/F screw because I've jetted the carb. didn't know if the standard jet kit would have a different screw.

If you guys can answer the question and give feedback, it would save me a lot of time. Thanks

I have the non-permanent tool. Works great. I used the "adjust while running" method and have not needed to readjust .... but it's only been two months. Whichever tool you choose .... Glen makes good stuff. Just got my clutch relief in the mail today. Looks great and I'll put it on tomorrow.

Thanks a lot for the advise guys. I went ahead and ordered the tool. The perm. mount worried me a little. I was concerened that it would be to easy for vibrations, other idiots, or myself to screw with too much and mess it all up.

You'll be happy with the tool, pretty easy to make adjustments on the fly. I was riding around and pulling over to make adjustments

And yes that CPR makes riding around town much more enjoyable. His claim of 50% reduction in tension is conservative imo. I cant believe how much smoother and easier it is to engage the clutch!!

Hey Scrappy, RayB21 here. Glen's A/F adjuster screw you are talking about is a great product. I ordered one and it came with a brass tool to remove the old A/f screw. This tool works great and made removing the old screw a piece of cake. I used a flexible extension with the brass tool attached and had the old screw out in no time. Assembled the new A/F screw, washer and rubber o-ring, and screwed it in until just seated then backed it out 2 and 1/2 turns. Bike started right up. I highly recommend this to all you VTX owners. Thanks Glen for another great product...Ray..RayB21.

I don't think any of the jet kits replace the a/f screw.

And yes, good choice, Glens a/f tool works freakin awesome!!

+1. Made adjusting a breeze instead of the royal PIA that it was before.
best $30 you'll spend. Glen's a good honest guy on top of it.
