    2016 CR knurled black adjustment thingy

    Hi, on the left hand side of the 2016 Crossrunner there is a knurled adjuster , a little above the crankcase. Would I be right in thinking that it is a tickover adjuster? I realise the Mr. Honda does things right so I will not be fiddling - I just wondered what its for.
    Many thanks

    Attached to a long tube which disappears back into the engine space? Yes, it is the tickover adjuster.

    Fiddle away, you wont hurt anything, you should ensure that your engine is fully warmed up before adjusting though, 3 bars on the temp gauge.

    Mine was set quite high when I bought the bike from new, so turned it down quite a bit as when I had the first MOT done, they said the back brakes were 70% Worn, lol.

    Fitted a new Honda set easily and were only £35

    How do you "set" the rpm without a digital or analogue readout of the rpm?

    The current LCD gives you a vague idea of the rpm but it's useless for setting anything accurately.

    I've always found the best way by far is by ear  :027:

    yes is vague I agree, but I just lowered it until it until it didn't sound like the throttle was stuck
