2006 gsxr 1000 idle screw?

Had the same thing happen to my R6 so I know whats wrong... my bike is idling right at 1000, should be around 1200 i thought. If i'm rolling up to a stop light it will die if i pull in the clutch from a high rev.

SOOO... Where is the idle screw on the 2006 gsxr 1000? (hopefully its not a fly by wire or something fancy) I can't buy the shop manual right now like i had with the old bike and couldnt find it at first glance.

any help is appreciated!

I did put on a slip on M4 exhaust, probably why this change happened as my bike only has 1900 miles on it....

do you have owner's manual? It doesn't stick out like other bikes. You might have to remove the tank to get to it.

Owner's manual is at the parents house in houston.... i was thinking it might be hidden because it was pretty obvious on the R6. May have to try and hold off until christmas break and take it to Motorcycles Unlimited

get a flashlight and look in between the tank and the frame on both sides. it will be a gold looking screw held by a white plastic clip. You might be able to get to it with a long flat head screw driver. I can't remember which side it's on for sure.

I know its a different bike, but if it helps, my idle screw is on the clutch side. It says to prop up the tank to adjust, it is attached to the throttle body linkage and kind of tight, but you maybe able to adjust without moving the tank.

Kat's is on the left, Busa is on the right... small thumb wheel, outside the cable eccentric on the throttle drive bar...

warm up bike, make small increment adjustment, then blimp throttle and redo...

Unbolt the seat and the front of the tank. Lift the tank, theres a gold colored thumb wheel on the left side of the throttle bodies.

wow up 800! the idle screw seemed easy to turn back to get me at 1200 rpm idle so it might be just the screw loosening from my extensive use of the bike commuting to campus 1 mile away
