    Hi folks, popped out for a winter ride yesterday and noticed the bike idling at 1500 rpm all day even when warm. This is only the second time that I have ridden it. Is this normal?

    Ps. This group has been a great help in getting on the road safely.

    • When it's cold mine normally starts, accels to 1500 rpm until it's warm, then drops back to 1200 rpm.

    • Thank you

    • It is a bit too much. Regular idling is 1200 +/- 100 according to Honda. Try testing it a bit more.

    • Italian tune up required...go and give it a right good thrashing...I can always tell when mine needs a good thrash and it always ticks over better after

    • Thanks guys! I'm going to service it at the weekend and take it out for a more spirited ride.
