Re: dieing at idle

well to get to the idle adjuster screw, go to the right side of the bike and peek in just behind the fairing and inbetween the cylinders. its tucked away underneath the carbs. its the biggest screw in there. but if your bike is set to 1,200rpm, and its stalling, I think you might have a different problem. does the idle fluctuate alot? what happens when you crack the throttle? sounds like you might need to get your carbs cleaned, or retuned.
