Fast idle

Anyone with a CBR1000RR notice if their bike is idling fast? Mine is idling at around 1500 rpms in gear with clutch in and abot 1300 in neutral. My two previous bikes, 929 and 954, did not idle this high. Just wondering.

Re: Fast idle

How about you turn the idle down?

Just a thought.

Re: Fast idle

Does it idle that high at all times or just when the engine is cold?

Re: Fast idle

Is the bike newish?
cause the idle tends to jump all over the place during the break in and needs adjustment around the 1000kms service

Yeah it has about 400 miles on it. Is there an adjustment knob somewhere to lower the idle? I half-ass looked around but the cold weather has me in the procrastination mode.

cold weather might also be it. my 929 idles around 1500 I think.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.
