For you guys with the 07, whats your idle speed at? Im getting close to 1800 rpms at idle and the book says around 1300!?! Been like this since i got the bike.

Mine was set identical to yours at the shop. I also notice i can "slow down" the idle a bit by furning throttle forward. both were adjusted at 500 mile checkup I would hope they would set the idle using a more accurate tach than what is on the bike- so that is the probable variance. If it bugs you turn the knob.

I prefer a lower idle myself.

To adjust the idle there is a small knob on the lefthand side of the fairing down near the alternator cover. You'll see it. Turn it counterclockwise to slow the idle, and clockwise to speed it up.

Make adjustments while the bike is warmed up and running. Blip the throttle once or twice after each adjustment and see where the idle falls back too.
