Just got the bike back from a service and its idling pretty fast. Out of interest, what kind of RPM is normal for you guys?

  • 1000

  • There's a little mark on the tach that's supposed to be the normal setting, mine is just below 1000

  • 500. Not higher

  • Just under 900 rpm

  • Mine idles that slow it barely registers on the tacho, just like my old Brit twins used too (carb model)

  • Mind you I think a too slow idling may be bad for the engine, even if it's good for your mind! ,-)

  • It`s been like that for the last 7 yrs and the engine is spot on. It`s just gone past 75000 kms this week

  • OK!

  • I keep mine idling slow cos I'm a tight-arsed jock and fast idling wastes petrol, and petrol costs money!

  • ~800rpm, once warmed thoroughly.
