set idle without tach

Recommended Posts

hi been out getting the feel for my new bike and i am slowly getting it in shape i was sitting at the lights and notice it was idling what i took as a bit fast so when i got home i wound it back a bit

my question is how do you do it without a tach do you guys and girsl just use your ears or what?

thanks ShaDoW

PS this was on a hot bike after a run so no issue with warming it up or anything.

I slow the idle speed down, tweak the fuel screw to get it running as fast/smooth as it can, slow it down then tweak the fuel screw again.

I repeat this until the idle speed screw is reduced as much as possible with the best possible fuel screw setting.

I then typically will increase the idle speed slightly to get a dependable, smooth idle.
