How do you know when you have 1300RPM's


Recommended Posts

yep it's a pretty slow turnover. i only dial it that low when trying to get the screw set. i run a pretty high idle when riding to help prevent stalls and such

My XR650R has a rather low idle when stone cold in the mornings so to compensate i hold the throttle slighty on for a minute or so to warm up then it tonkers very nicely.

When hot and warm the idle is just right and sounds very nice too ๐Ÿ™‚

You're just reading it too slow. ๐Ÿ™‚

Just about any cheap inductive type tach will work. You just clamp a lead around the plug wire. Some inexpensive multi-meters have a tach function. A multi-meter is usefull for a lot of other things and you will get a lot of use from one, not just the tach function.

To put the "by ear" thing in perspective; would you want a dealership working on your bike to just do things by ear? If not, don't accept anything less of your work.

Great advice, thank you very much. Harbor freight $36 now I don't have to guess.๐Ÿ™‚
