Rough Idle

Hey Everyone,
the idle isnt too rough, but I was just wondering what it could be and/or how to make it smoother. its a 2000 929 with about 22k on it and a jardine rt-1 can on it. Just cleaned the air filter, plugs and all other fluids got changed. The bike idles at about 1300rpm. Im wondering if the bike's idle control is a throttle stop or a by pass valve and how to clean it up? It just sounds like it fluctuates a little more than it should. I just rode new 600rr yesterday and noticed how smooth it idled. Is it just age? any input is appreciated

The idle control is just a screw that opens the throttle plates.
I'd have to hear it but it could be throttle body synchronisation, dirty injectors or filters or an air leak - or it could just be normal :-)
If you don't have a PC it might also benefit from having the fueling tidied up to suit the muffler.

It's possible but unlikely. It's likely it'll give you a lumpy power curve though which you may not want to live with. I've spent years on GSXR750's so I quite like sharp power spikes but a nice linear curve is what works best on the track.
The manufacturer should be able to tell you if their product requires rejetting. Staintune for example advise that all of their stuff requires no jetting at all.
