There you go. There's no better answer to your question. Forget what the tach says. Rely on your ears and how the bike performs. If it stalls, increase the idle speed. If it doesn't, decrese the idle until it does then increase it until it doesn't...then go ride and forget about the instruments. (sort of like flying VFR)
