High Rpm's?

Well bike is finally legal and got the new exhaust on (Yoshi TRS). Took a ride yesterday and while in traffic it seems the rpm's are a little high (about 1300-1400) Is there a way to adjust this? I dont have PcIII and really on my last 9er with Satos exhaust i didnt have one either and never really thought I needed one. Any thoughts or am I pretty close to where the rpm's should be?

My guess is 1,000-1,200 rpm at idle.

You should have an idle set screw available on either side of the fuel intake bodies.

Yeah the manual says around 1200 rpm I think. You'll see the adjustment screw pretty easily it has a yellow plastic cap on it. Adjust it with the bike warm, wear gloves obviously.

Bigdaa is correct. The manual says 1100 RPM +-100. Adjustment screw on the left with a yellow top, like TheBeeDeeGee said.

Yeah I just turned mine down some until I got it around 900 rpm warmed up. I've seen people mention how it doesn't idle very well there but mine seems to do fine. I've never been a huge fan of that stock idle. At stop lights it always just seems to high and unnecessary.

Put it back up around 1100 or you're not going to like what happens when it gets warm in Dallas again... -splutter-splutter-silence-

The bike is designed to run perfectly fine on 87 or 89 Octane. Are you having issues with detonation or something? That would be the only really necessary reason to run a higher octane rating...

Probably more habbit than anything. I bought it new in 07 and have just always ran 93. I haven't ever had any issues at all with the 9er. I'm thinking the manual says 87 or higher.

Manual states plain ol 87. Try it, you'll get less stink and slightly better performance.
