Engine Speed Adjustment on Honda HRR216K9VKA Self Propelled Mower
Hello. I recently bought a new Honda Lawnmower at Home Depot. The model number is HRR216K9VKA.
The mower starts on the first pull and initially revs at a high speed for about 1/2 second, then the engine speed goes down a bit (auto-throttle?). I would like to adjust the engine speed (throttle?) so it doesn't throttle down quite as much as it does.
Does this make sense?

That engine should run between 2,950~3,100 rpm. You really need a tachometer to confirm / adjust the engine speed. Your mower is still under warranty, so ideally a Honda Dealer in your area can inspect and adjust as necessary; here's a link to find one in your area:
Find A Honda Dealer
If you'd prefer to DIY, again, use a tachometer, and understand the blades are spinning when the engine is running. It's a two-man job to do this safely and correctly.

Caveat: I work for Honda, but the preceding was my opinion alone.
