Just wondering what everyone's RPMs are at while at an idle? Friend of mine (who rides a cruiser) said he thought mine was idling high... My 03 RC51 idles around 1500... is this normal? What does yours do?

No, that is normal for an RC. The map you have loaded in a power commander can change your idle too. The current map in mine makes it idle around 1500-1600 usually.

My RR idles around 1500, my ZX7 idles between 1100, and 2000 depending on the temperature.

I set the idle on my bikes at 1200 to 1300 rpm. On the RC I think 1500 is idling too high. Your idle adjust screw is on the right side of your bike just under the side fairing by your right knee. You'll have to loosen the fairing screw to get to it.

1500 RPM is what most of the guys on Speedzilla forums use. My bike was setup from the dealer to idle at 1500 RPM (warm) so I left it that way.

(stuntbike :) )

is there anything else you can do to make the bike idle higher, mine only goes to about 3300 when warmed up, with the idle screw set at the highest point (91' zx7)

I just keep the throttle pinned at 7k at the stoplight. Never know when a wheelie may come in handy.
