Default dl100 idle

I just joined today,having bought a new 07 1000 saturday.I experienced dying at low rpm and found the idle at 800 rpm.I know now from here it needs to be 1100-1200 I think.How do you adjust the idle?I dont want to fool with the dealer bit.

On the left side of the bike beneath the plastic frame cover below the fuel tank you'll see a phillips head screw, that is your adjustment. Turning right increases the idle speed.

Do I need to pull those parts off to access the idle screw?

No, you should be able to see it easily just above the Large engine mounting bolt. Mine has a large white teflon washer behind it so it is easy to spot. There is a little bracket that holds it in place.

I am a new member also. 2007 dl1000 with all the toys.. One thing you will need is a PCIII without a doubt or hesitation, bought mine at Dennis Kirk with a low price match, plus they will take it back if not satisfied, I am now a believer, it makes the bike run like it should have from the start instead of having to struggle with the surging and misfires at 3000rpm for 10kmi. I used the custom map from Chef with K & N filter and stock pipes. I have seen 45 mpg on steady runs at 75 mph with this map. Also, I tried all types of throttle balance manometers and found a Carbmate to sync better than mercury sticks or the home made sync for $4. Syncro tool named Carbmate electronic sync is at Tool Souce for $90 or $159 at JP cycles.., more info about this uint found under TecMate..You can ride the bike at 3000 rpms without lugging it and shift when you want. I am not a believer in reving out the motor all the time..I want to enjoy the ride and the views..

And here http://11109.rapidforum.com/topic=120468723357 is a picture of it, from a thread I started over at the V-Strom forum asking the same question.

posted elsehwere here but mine stalled a few times when brand new. It stopped stalling after a few days. I have the idle set just above 1000. If your bike is new, i assume you have the owners manual. It shows you a how to adjust the idle. The bike ran even better after the 600 mile service where they did a throttle synch. Not perfect, it still misses once and while on decel. Probaly from what I read, PCIII would fix that.

That's still a little low. 1000's should idle at 1100-1200 and 650s at 1200-1400.
