Idle adjuster is on the left. It looks like a Philips head screw on a wee bracket bolted to the frame.

Are you referring to the overall idle speed or the fast idle speed when starting the engine cold? If the former, refer to bwringers reply. If the latter, check out https://www.vstrom.info/Smf/index.php/topic,7512.0.html.

Wow, that's complicated! I wanted to lower the fast idle, I think the factory setting is too fast. Does anyone else agree?

It’s pretty easy once you’ve done it a time or two. Somewhere in the sevice manual there is a chart stating what the rpm’s of the fast idle vs ambient temperature should be. Might even find it online. If yours is out f sorts, you could just lift the rear of the tank, Mark the screw with nail polish for reference and turn the screw a tad. Has to be done with a cold engine and you only have a couple of seconds
