Honda 919 Idling RPM's?

I didn't ride much last year, and just got the 2004 919 out, seems to be idling high to me at little over 1.5 tad over, is this normal? if not how u adjust it down?

Idle is 1200+/-100 iirc. Idle adjustment is s yellow knob on the right side. Back it out a bit, blip the throttle. Be sure the engine is warm. If it sits at 1100-1300 go ride!

if you love your motorcycle, set it free.. if it comes back and hits you.. you highsided

Garage
Make sure the 'enrichener' isn't pulled out. That will cause a high idle.

No, he didn't remove it, he claimed he cut it. He was just trolling.
