Hi guys , basically I don't understand these instructions to adjust idle speed :roll:

If you turn the throttle stop until you get about 1500 revs, why bother adjusting the pilot screws? You already have the idle speed you want?

There's supposed to be some free play in your throttle so adjusting the idle using the stop is not a good idea. On the side of your carb will be a small idle adjustment screw. Turn it in and out until you get the required idle speed. Easy please.

Cheers IM. Last time I was into biking I didn't have a throttle stop screw so it was new to me :? Sounds straight forward. I'm just getting to know my bike and adjusting the idle is something I might do as tick over is just over 1000 and careful feathering of the throttle keeps things ticking over at a standstill. Things improve when it gets a bit warmer.

cheers again.
