crf450R 2009 idle knob setting

hi, i have a crf450R 2009, having difficulty setting the idle knob to factory setting.  Having problems interpreting manual Japaneses interpretation.  Can anyone out there assist with the correct factory setting and how i can manually do the setting ie how many clicks out or in etc...   would appreciate any assistance

You adjust by rpm, not clicks. You turn it 'backwards' (counterclockwise) to raise the rpm. Do it when the motor is hot. The idle should be about 2200 rpm; check the manual. You can use a  clamp-on hour meter, or the factory tuning software.  I would just set it high enough so you don't stall all the time.
