idle speed?
on: October 28, 2019, 07:30:39 PM
Hi everyone, I'm new to both the forum and crossrunner. My idle speed is approximately 1,600 revs the engine temp was 90+ so the engine was warm.
Is this normal?

Welcome, idle should be 1000-1200rpm

Easy to adjust, the idle speed adjuster is easily accessible, no tools reqd., check your manual for exact location. :028:

Think it should be on the rhs of the engine, a knurled black knob on the end of a wire which you twist to alter the idle rpm.
1 VFR simply isnt enough! Crossrunner for commuting, VFR1200F for summer fun.

Thanks for the advice and assistance. I'll attempt to change the idle speed tomorrow and let you know.  :152:

Thanks for the advice. I found the idle adjustment on the left hand side, (clutch lever side) a knurled black knob. It looks like a plastic bolt blocking off a water hose. I gave it the slightest of twists and she sits even prettier now at 1000 rpm.  :020:  :031:
