Could you be a little clearer in your question? Engine control is done with your right hand/wrist.

well all bikes since the early days have a engine rpm limiter actually there is a couple ways to do it.

1. don't twist the throttle so much
2. don't put oil in the engine
3. crash the bike and the rpms go down really fast then
4. or just don't ride it at all and the rpm limiter is then set to 0 also

if all else fails ask one of the fine sponsors o this board what's the best method to do it.

I dont think yall understand what he is asking he is asking how to adjust the IDLE



just like all other bikes in the US on the left side of the bike behind the fairing right by the engine case there is a black plastic piece that is attached to a hose it resembles the looks of a gear take it out of the c bracket it sits in and start the bike turn it to the left the idle will drop turn it to the right it will start to raise

I hope this helps you

i mean to say right know the engine rpm is steady at 2000 rpm i want to lower it to say 1300 to 1500 rpm i feel like the engine is running too high on rpm when it is neutral

He might be asking about idle RPM. Back in the day all bikes had a or some such to adjust idle RPM. But I think all modern sportbikes accomplish this electronically and you don't really have a good way to change it. (that I know of)

i thought some of the most new bikes didn't have a rpm adjustment cable. thought it was set by comp??

idle adjustment is the same on bikes the world over. so it won't change country to country if it was in a certain place in newzealand it would be in the same place in cooterville,usa

as far as i know all bikes have an idle adjuster i see 07 bikes with them 01 bikes with them i mean i dont think they would ever take it off of a bike that would be ridiculous but i may be wrong but i am almost positive it does i know my 06 636 does and my 05 R6 and the 07 and 08 R6's do

But on the newer bikes it is a little farther in the system right? I think my R6 has a adjustable stop by the throttle body. But my SV has a on the frame near my left knee.

I guess the question is do you need to adjust it? I think you mentioned 1500 RPM. Both my bikes idle between 1350 and 1500 so I don't think it is a problem (???).

With the advent of fuel injection, there will not be a set screw to adjust. However, there will be an adjustment somewhere. I don't know where, but it's gotta be there. Wish I could see it in person, I'd help if I could.

also in regards to the other thread

If thats why it kicks so hard it makes sense, since on my bike the 'choke' is controlled electronically and when I first start it idles higher than normal which is probably why i never noticed it when I was on the road.
