Hello all...

I've been through the manual looking for start/warm up procedure.  The GS was start and go, my Pan was idle until one temp bar illuminated before riding.  What do you lot do with the Crossrunner?

I let mine warm until the cold start sequence is complete and the rpm reduces, but if you ride gently for a mile or so you should be OK to just get on and ride.

Ditto, a couple of minutes and the revs die down and away we go  :002:  just time for the grips to heat up.

Hi

Like the others have said I usually give it a couple of minutes after starting the bike before I set off.

I then ride gently for a mile or two to let the engine warm up fully before riding as normal.

About 1000 rpm, but it runs rough below that.

I'm sure mines 1500-2000 even when warm I'll check again next time I'm out.

It's interesting idle speed has been mentioned as the demo bike I rode was still racing at idle when I returned it after a 15 miles test ride. 

I think I spotted an idle adjustment on the clutch lever side of the bike mid engine area last weekend.  Most bikes I've owned have always been 900 - 1050 rpm for idle speed.

On initial start up mine revs to almost 2000 then dies down. Normal idle, when up to temp is about 1100, dealer said use the manual idle adjuster (well spotted Mr Kean) to set my own speed! Seems to be a personal preference.
A neighbour has just bought a new Jaguar sporty thing and that does the same and apparently is the new normal, to fire up on a high rpm for a couple of minutes then down to a normal rpm. Hers sounds great at 6am every morning  :006:  all probably due to emission levels and controlled by the ecu.
