In cold weather, like 40-50s it won't idle. I gotto get right on the gas and ride it, which is difficult in the cities. I don't want to turn up the idle because once I is warm it would then idle at 2k.

Any ideas?

The fast idle adjusting screw for 2004-2006 is pictured circled. It's close to where the lower throttle cable connects to the linkage.

I'm aware of this idle screw. However if I turn it up while cold it overrevs at idle once warmed up.

Is this normal for this bike, or do I have a problem?

There is a balance between the fast idle screw setting and the hot idle screw setting. Did you adjust the fast idle screw with the STVA disconnected to assure a cold signal, connect it and warm up the bike, then adjust the hot idle screw to 1300rpm? If so, check the linkage so one adjustment is not affecting the other. Check the service manual on p5-31. There may be a bad STVA or TPS if they can't be adjusted correctly.

Thanks you for your time and dedication to this site!

One last question, what is SVTA?

In Ecuador so service manual is at home and well not too easy here.

Secondary throttle valve actuator. It has a yellow + and a Black/Brown negative wire.
