My understanding is you don`t adjust the idle on a fuel injected bike the computer and sensors do it for you.I`m new to fuel injected bikes myself so you might double check my advice. The travel computer does not shut off its on constantly.

The idle speed adjustment is done from the right side of the bike, rear of the throttle body. Look below the false tank and move the throttle a bit. You will find the adjustment screw near the center of the motor. Note!!!----the fuel injection must be cleaned and syncronized prior to any idle adjustment. Sync is done from left to right only and no adjustment can be made from front to rear of the cylinders. Idle speed can then be set after motor is completely warmed up.

:D :D thanks for the info.I hope to get my wing back tomorrow,had to replace the TPS but since they are not made any more we took a TPS off of an older model Honda and retro fit it to the wing. It seems to run great now.

thanks ron
