idle adjustment screw - newb

Hello,
can someone help me out and tell me where the idle adjustment screw on an 08zzr600 is? I looked at the owners manual but it shows an older bike that isn't the same. I looked around and couldn't find the screw and don't want to just mess with random stuff. A specific location or picture would be great! Thanks everyone.. yes I am a newb.

After the engine has completely warmed up the idle screw should be set at 1350+/- rpm's.

Glad that idle screw wasn't a big snake. It could bit your left leg off

Look on the left hand side of the bike near the coolant overflow reservoir.

Here's a pic! Maximize the photo, you will see a red arrow pointing at the idle adjustment screw.

The information you are looking for in the owners manual is located under "Carburetors". In my owners manual that would be pages 95 and 96. On page 96 it has a picture of basically the same thing I posted.

Your welcome. It this your first bike? If so, please take some time to read over the owners manual. Knowing very basic information, like the location of the "idle adjustment screw", is kind of important.

Idle Adjusting screw (tube) is disconnected. I took the tank off and still can't figure where the tube screws in at. I was having problems starting my engine. It cuts off when I let off the throttle. I started looking and noticed from behind the screw the tube was just hanging. I hope this is the problem I tried Sea Foam and no go. HELP!!!!!!!!!!!
