Idle speed

Hi just got my GS back from dealers for high idle 4000rpm still not right I think as it’s idling at 2000rpm and hunting to 2500, can people please confirm I am not going mad is it feels wrong to me. Thanks in advance

Should be around the 1700rpm at idle if I remember correctly.

2500 is better than 4000, but still not really "idle"

The spec is 1500 to 1700 RPM as printed in the owner's manual (easy to show to your dealer).

Mine tends to stay closer to the 1700 mark if I remember correctly.

I had a problem with this on my 310R. So have a few others though I'm not sure if those were R or GS. My issue was faulty idle control actuator. They had to order part from Germany and replace. About 2 hrs work done under warranty. Some people on this forum might tell you it's a faulty idle set screw but the mechanic that fixed mine said that doesn't exist on the R. I would guess it doesn't exist on GS either but that's just a guess.

My bike was idling around 3500rpm and now idles in the specified range of around 1700rpm. Sounds and feels way different (better) since it was fixed.
