Default Re: How is your idle set?

i run aftermarket throttles with no kill switches, but i mount switches in different places, and use them everytime i want to kill the engine, and have never had any problems.

i have my idle set so it idles, one bike idles a little high, but it's because i have a backwards engine configuration, and the intake port points downward, and after idling awhile, it'll stall out because there's not enough gas traveling upwards.

overall, i have to start and stop so much riding through southern california traffic that i need it to idle, i hate having to start it back up alla time.

as for starting it, i pull the clutch, pedal, then dump it. i looked at my clutch after 6 months of heavy riding, and it looks great, so i ain't too worried about it...
