if you have a tachometer then yes, the idle screw is set to match the warm idle speed listed in the manual. 1400 or 1500 RPM? Since not a lot of us have tachometers we judge by ear. I screw it completely out so the engine is struggling to keep an idle, even stalling, and then screw it in to get a smooth idle....which usually turns out to be too fast once the bike has really warmed up....so I screw it out a hair and that's were I keep it. real scientific!

You look much less stupid locking your handlebar lock every night no matter where you park it than looking at the empty space where your bike was last parked.
