Hi all,

I'm new to the forum, and love reading through all the topics. I could talk about bikes all day long :)

I own a J1, and didn't like the low idle that it had (1k rpm). So I adjusted the idle adjuster on the left-hand side of the bike beside the coolant reservoir so that the bike now idles at a nice 1500rpm, sounds so much nicer and it picks up from a quick blip of the throttle so much better than before. Before, if I gave it a quick blip of the throttle from idle it would hesitate, but if the rpm was above 1500, then a quick blip of the throttle would cause a nice sharp rise in the rpm....hence why I raised the idle. It also sounds a lot smoother on idle, and less rattly.

My question is, now that I have raised the idle, would there be any chance of the bike flooding itself if I ever forgot to turn the fuel off? I'm pretty sure it would be fine, but just want to clarify this for peace of mind.

Also, is the hesitation that I was having at lower idle normal?

You probably need to clean the carbs, jets etc etc & adjust the mix screws.

1,000 is to low, But 1,500 is a bit high, Does it jerk when you stick it in first?

I run/idle mine between 1,100-1,200.
Carbs are finicky & can be a real headache.

Welcome to the forum.
