Someone's going to tell you how do guage it correctly with the proper tool, but it sounds a little slow to me.

Ok. I know how to adjust, I just don’t have the ear for it. I’ll adjust and repost. Thank you!

Do you like to experiment?? This is a way I've never tried because I've always had a tach, but with these new Honda's there is no tach, So, an old timer told me years ago to
Use a multi meter that has an Hz option, turn it to that,
Remove both leads.
Take a piece of solid wire, strip the end so you can make a U shape.
Stick it into the POS lead hole so it's snug.
Start your bike, turn your meter on and get the lead close to the spark plug wire....DO NOT TOUCH THE WIRE.....Getting it close to the wire should cause the meter HZ to start racking up the number of the RPM, He said he'd always used an analog meter to do it, but the digital ones might work also.
It's just a thought and hopefully you wont try it using a $300 meter in case it fails or burns up your meter.
