With the idle screw, how do you know your in the sweet spot?
Is there a normal "x amount of turns out" or something that tells you your close without a dyno check? Please let me know if you can. Thanks

No ... no fixed amount of turns... well I've never counted mine.
I usually turn it in a full half to 3/4 turn when starting the bike cold. Then
back it out when it warms up. I just like a nice steady beat / idle, one that
wont let the bike cut out sitting at a light :mad:
