Page 6-62 of the service manual describes how to inspect engine idle speed, but it really looks like an inspection of throttle-body synchronization. It says to check that the vacuum difference is within 30 mmHg, and if not, check the usual: valve clearance, ignition timing, and clogged exhaust. If these aren't causing the problem, replace the throttle-body assembly. They have to be kidding: What's the matter with adjusting the synchronization screws like I do with the 6 carbs on my CBX? Has anyone else looked at this?

I wondered about that lack of "getting down into the weeds" with the throttle body assy. Especially if this bike is a one of a kind, and will have to have parts custom machined 20 years from now. IN the meanwhile, I have no problems and am trying hard to get to 50,000 miles before the year is out. And 200,000 miles before parts get hard to find.
