PostSubject: Idle speed adjustment   Idle speed adjustment I_icon_minitimeSat Jan 30, 2016 8:20 pm

Greetings. Lately, I've noticed that my SWing's idle speed has crept up to about 1500-1600 rpm. The service manual says that 1300 is correct and it shows that there is an access port to the idle adjustment screw under the seat.

I found the port, but cannot raise the seat high enough to look in and find the screw adjuster. Also can't feel it.

Anybody done this before and figured out a way to do it without disconnecting the seat support strut?

Thank you, Jeff. Still a bit of a puzzle to me, as I have to do it by feel and I'm not sure I'm in the right place.

I'll try it again tomorrow.

Jinglebob,
I would disconnect the seat support before trying to adjust the idle. There are vacum adjuster screws on either side of the idle set screw and you do not want to mess with the vacum adjuster screws. By diconnecting the seat support you can raise the seat to see into the access hole to get to the idle screw. It is located in the middle, but under some hose. You should get a service manual before attempting any maintenance to your bike.

Thanks, Easyrider. As noted above, I have the service manual and have consulted it on this and many other maintenance subjects. It's a very good manual for most things, but on this subject, it's not too good.

I think you're right...I'm going to have to disconnect the strut so I can see where the idle adjust screw is. I'm not feeling up to it at the moment, but I'll probably get to it next week some time.

To 'un-do' the strut, all you have to do is remove the very small cotter pin. Just be careful that you don't drop it since it is very small. Once you remove it you can just get a bungy cord and hook the seat to the handlebar to keep the seat up. It only takes about 10 seconds with a pair of needle-nose pliers.

Yes, I remember from when I changed the stock seat out to a Corbin seat. I lost at least one cotter pin on that little transaction and that's why I'm trying to avoid it for this... Shocked

Hold a magnet (the larger the better) under that cotter pin as you are removing it. Hopefully that magnet will catch the in if it slips your grip.

I've taken to adding a twist tie to the loop end of the pin before reinstalling. Even though it's only a few inches long, it gives you something to grasp when removing the pin, but also makes the pin much more noticeable if it does go awry.

Those little buggers do share DNA with feral parakeets and will join the mysterious flock of feral budgie pins flying about given the slightest opportunity.

I call them Jesus pins. That's what I say when I lose them Smile
