When I have my computer plugged in its showing different RPMs than it shows on my tachometer.

Not sure which is correct. I would think a computer cant lie, but I mean the tach is whats fixed to the bike so i dunno. I set the idle based off the tach and it seemed fine, but what is correct? Id hate to do trial and error and find out i did it the wrong way

OEM tachs are invariably optimistic (Yamaha are probably the worst).
Just set the idle on the tach according to the manual.
