You can find that info in the manual... or Google it as I just did... Idle screw on the left hand side should be set between 1250 ~ 1300 rpm.... or so..
I believe that the 2006 model was the last year to have an idle adjustment screw. From 2007 on there is no mention of that adjustment using an idle adjustment screw.Just picked up an 06 DL650, the idle is around 800, what should it be? This is my first FI bike, is there a knob to set or some fancy science. Oh love it
Right. Starting in 2007, an idle speed control valve automatically keeps the idle at the correct rpm.I believe that the 2006 model was the last year to have an idle adjustment screw. From 2007 on there is no mention of that adjustment using an idle adjustment screw.
I have a 2007 vstrom 650 with 65,000 miles and it not wanting to idle. I notice the ISC valve makes a clicking noise when I turn the bike off but I have taken it off and watched it move up and down so it work. Would that valve stop my bike from idling? When I start it it goes to 1300 rpm and then drops to 500 rpm and dies.+1 on that. Just because it will tolerate a low idle is a poor reason to maintain it there. You need 1100 rpm or more to sustain oil pressure.
Check to see whether you have the throttle lever gap set correctly:

On my 2007 dl650 it stalled while I was riding and now after doing a high pressure fuel filter bypass, tps, coils and plugs it still having trouble idling. After I able to let it warm up at 1100- 1000 rpm I turn it off and then try to restart the bike and it doesn’t want to do it? Any idea what it could be.Right.
